It seems that there’s going to be a Pirates of the Caribbean 5, after all, and I’m not sure if I’m to be happy or annoyed by it (annoyed mainly because once Hollywood sees that people like a franchise, they try and do their best to squeeze all the money out of fans, usually with unnecessary sequels which rarely live up to their predecessors).
The word is that Disney Pictures is now planning to film the fifth installment in Puerto Rico – instead of where they normally shoot, in Hawaii – and that production is looking to gear up in November.
According to Caribbean Business PR, the studio chose Puerto Rico as the new location for filming due to the country’s “aggressive incentives” they employed in order to bring Hollywood to the island.

In a recent interview with Geoffrey Rush, the Pirates of the Caribbean star confessed he had no idea when the fifth installment would be going forward. But now we know where it's going, at least. Pirates of the Caribbean 5 appears to be headed to Puerto Rico to start shooting this November. That's good news, since the status of the film is somewhat in flux, with Rob Marshall (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) possibly returning to direct and the script in the process of being finalized. As we all know, the next installment (and the franchise itself) sets its course by its star, Johnny Depp. Should we expect to see him in Puerto Rico this fall? Hit the jump for more. News of Disney's decision to film in Puerto Rico comes via /Film, sourcing The Film Stage and business development site, CaribbeanBusinessPR.com. Although the previous films were »

** Update: Walt Disney Pictures says that yes, it's true that the project is in development, but the story at Caribbean Business is not accurate. ** Looking back a few years ago, Pirates of the Caribbean 5 was in development long before Pirates 4 aka On Stranger Tides hit theaters. Tides went on to gross over $1 billion worldwide, proving there was still a ton of money to be made from the franchise. To date, the four Pirates movies have grossed over $3.5 billion worldwide. The Film Stage dug up a Caribbean business website that reports the film will begin shooting in Puerto Rico this November. Rob Marshall is likely to helm the film which will see the return of Johnny Depp's Capt. Jack Sparrow. The Puerto Rico Film Commission states, "Disney just...

Update: Coming Soon has learned from Disney that while Pirates of the Caribbean 5 is in development, the original report from Caribbean Business PR is "not accurate." The original post is below. It looks like it won't be very long until we get another Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Reports have surfaced saying that Disney Pictures is now planning to film the fifth installment in the franchise in Puerto Rico - instead of where they normally shoot, in Hawaii - and that production is looking to gear up in November. The news comes from Caribbean Business PR (via The Film Stage) which says that the studio chose Puerto Rico as the new location for filming due to the country's "aggressive incentives" that they have been using to try and bring Hollywood to the island nation.

Let's get something straight before we kick this off. The Sun's recent ridiculous rumor that Johnny Depp could command a massive $95 million paycheck for Pirates of the Caribbean 5 is ludicrous and in all likelihood will not happen. (There were rumors that he would score $75 million for On Stranger Tides, but that didn't pan out, either.) But for the sake of argument and to have a little fun, let's just pretend that this preposterous deal actually goes through so we can break down just how ridiculous this monster payday would be for the actor. Prepare yourselves, because this quickly gets hilarious and sad all at the same time. For the purposes of this piece, we're going to have to make a lot of assumptions, so let's lay those out before we get into running these insane numbers. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (#4) shot for 106 days, »

The concluding part of our mammoth look at the sequels currently in the works...
Here's the rest of the list, from L through to Z. It's all continued from page one, here.
Eli Roth oversaw the original The Last Exorcism, and he's producing the follow-up as well, which should be in cinemas by the end of the year. Ashley Bell returns to headline the film, which is being directed by Ed Glass-Donnelly.
Danny Trejo is returning to play Machete, with Machete Kills heading into production by April. It’s unclear at the moment whether Robert Rodriguez will be directing this one himself, but at the very least, he’s producing and shepherding the project. Exepct a 2013 release.
Mad Max 4 and 5
This one’s had a troubled path. Mad Max: Fury Road was originally set to go before the cameras last year, and indeed, »
Director Rob Marshall dived into the action genre with a perfect 10 score, delivering Disney's top overseas film of 2011, the monster hit Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, the fourth film in the popular Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. Scriptwriters Ted Elliot and Terry Rossio continued to work on a draft for Pirates 5 last year and producer Jerry Bruckheimer indicated he was set to make another Pirates film and started conversations with Marshall to return. However Marshall kept his future work schedule busy re-teaming with Pirates star Johnny Depp for a remake of the classic crime comedy The Thin Man at Warner Bros. »
