As rumors of relationship trouble continue to swirl, a source tells People that Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart have called it quits after more than three years of dating.

Did you call your mother yet? I was just talking to mine. Before we hung up, apropos of nothing, she says...
I was watching Turner Classic Movies this week. Sometimes I think of you when I watch."
Which... well, from my mother that's like a huge bouquet of flowers and hugs since she isn't super verbally affectionate. When pressed about which movie(s) she couldn't remember. "You know... that actress"
Was it... Barbara Stanwyck? I asked, trying to help with the first name that popped into my mind. "No. But I've seen lots of her movies. I didn't used to like her but now I do."
Her current obsession is The Pirates of Penzance (1983) with 'that great new actor Kevin Kline' (new, mom?). She has apparently been buying up his filmography on VHS at garage sales and also likes French Kiss (1995) "except for the awful language!" Last time I »

Walt Disney Pictures, producer Jerry Bruckheimer, and Johnny Depp are ready to move forward with Pirates of the Caribbean 5 now that The Lone Ranger has been completed. The are currently in the process of hiring a director to take on the project.
A new report from Deadline reveals a short list of three directors who are up for the gig. Those directors include: Fredrik Bond (The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman), Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg (Kon-Tiki), and Rupert Sanders (Snow White And The Huntsman). I guess that's four names technically, but one of them is a directing team.
The report says that the Kon-Tiki guys are the names coming up the most, but obviously at this point no offer has been made to any of them. I haven't seen Kon-Tiki yet, but it looks like a great movie. I think its directors could do great things with the Pirates franchise. »

It's been a while since we've heard much about Pirates of the Caribbean 5. We know it's coming, because On Stranger Tides was such a box office success (though I felt it was the weakest of the bunch), but outside of a couple rumors, things have been silent. Now reports are coming in about the director's Disney is currently looking at to potentially helm the fifth installment in the franchise.
At this point, it's tough for me to garner any interest in another Pirates of the Caribbean movie. I enjoyed the trilogy (even though the third one had issues) but was thoroughly disappointed in On Stranger Tides. It was far weaker all around and it felt like the series had overstayed it's welcome. Regardless, it made a bunch of money and Disney is still keen to get more out of the franchise.
According to Deadline four directors have been placed »

Right now, there are reportedly two favourites. Right now it's the duo of Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg, the directors behind the recent historical adventure drama "Kon-Tiki," who are reportedly the favourites.
Their hiring would make sense. Shot on a budget of just $15 million, the Oscar-nominated feature looked like it was produced for multiple times that price. They've also just dropped out of their next proposed project "Spectral."
Shooting aims to begin later this year or early next year, but a director will be locked down within the next few weeks.

Talk of a sequel has been circling since 2011’s highly successful Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, which took more than a billion dollars at the global box office, and stands tall as the 11th highest-grossing film of all time.
Whilst we’ve not heard anything official on the director’s front, it looks like that might soon be changing. Deadline report that the studio are narrowing their short list for the next person to take the helm for the franchise, and have heard four names of those currently in the mix.
First up is Frederik Bond, who is thought to be a favourite of producer Jerry Bruckheimer. Bond has recently made his feature debut with the Shia Labeouf-starrer, The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman, which premiered »

It would seem that Pirates of the Caribbean 5, the inevitable sequel to On Stranger Tides, is starting to raise its sails and get pieces in place. Johnny Depp is once again set to reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow and Jerry Bruckheimer is back as a producer, however, one very important element that's still missing is a director. Rob Marshall, who helmed the last film, won't be back, but Deadline has found out the names of the filmmakers who might take over at the wheel. Fredrik Bond, who recently directed the Shia Labeouf-starring action comedy The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman; Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg, directors of last year's Oscar-nominated adventure film Kon-Tiki; and Rupert Sanders, best known for Snow White and the Huntsman, are all now being considered as the directors of the franchise sequel. Bruckheimer is apparently a big fan of Bond's work, though »

It's little secret that Disney is pressing ahead with a fifth Pirates Of The Caribbean movie, which has already been scheduled for the summer of 2015. After all, it's arguably now the most critic-proof franchise on the planet, outside of Transformers. The last three films have been really quite poor (with the odd spark), and have gone on to make huge buckets of cash. That On Stranger Tides took over $1bn worldwide remains baffling, given its side ability to cure insomnia.
For the fifth film, it now seems all but certain that another new director is being recruited. Gore Verbisnki, who helmed the first three, was never likely to return. Rob Marshall, who directed the fourth, was a possible, but according to the latest reports, »
While each new installment in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise has gotten increasingly poor reviews, the movies have continued to be massive box office successes for Disney (particularly in foreign markets, where the movies made more than 65% of their grosses).
So naturally it’s no surprise that the company is forging ahead with Pirates of the Caribbean 5. At the beginning of the year, Terry Rossi’s script was rewritten by Jeff Nathanson (Tower Heist). Now we have word that Disney has several names on a shortlist to direct the film.
According to Deadline, the directors in consideration for the big budget project are Fredrik Bond (The Necessary Death Of Charlie Countryman), Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg (Kon-Tiki), and Rupert Sanders (Snow White and The Huntsman). Of the options, Sanders ...

Disney has started to draw up a shortlist of directors for the next Pirates of the Caribbean movie.
Kon-Tiki directing duo Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg are also said to be in the running as the studio, lead actor Johnny Depp and producer Jerry Bruckheimer carry on discussions about the follow-up to Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.
Bond - who will make his feature film directing debut with Charlie Countryman later this year - is believed to be Bruckheimer's personal favourite to take the director's chair on the fifth Pirates instalment.
It is thought that more meetings are on the cards before an offer will be made, and it is hoped that a director will be hired within the »
Now that work on "The Lone Ranger" is finished, Disney, producer Jerry Bruckheimer and Johnny Depp are now focused on getting the fifth "Pirates of the Caribbean" film off the ground. Lots of directors have been looked at and considered, but the list has now been narrowed down to three names; Fredrick Bond (The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman), Joachim Ronning and Espect Sandberg (Kon-Tiki), and Rupert Sanders (Snow White and The Huntsman). At this point Ronning and Sandberg are the favorite to get the job. Their film earned a Foreign Oscar nomination and they recently dropped out of directing "Spectral" for Legendary Pictures. Bruckheimer prefers Bond, who has been rumored for the gig for some time. But Sanders is the only person who actually has experience working on big-budget films. »
