After making millions, or rather billions, from blockbuster franchises The Pirates Of The Caribbean and National Treasure amongst others, The Walt Disney Company and powerhouse producer Jerry Bruckheimer have decided not to re-team once their current first look deal ends next year.

The Walt Disney Studios and Jerry Bruckheimer have decided not to renew their first-look deal when it expires next year.
