The last we heard about "Pirates Of The Caribbean 5" aka "Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" was not so good. Originally slated for release next year, it was taken off the calendar, and of this spring, it still needed a script. But perhaps the pieces are starting to come together? If producer Jerry Bruckheimer has his way, it won't be too long until Johnny Depp is once again blowing up the budget line on mascara.

Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World's End

The last we heard about "Pirates Of The Caribbean 5" aka "Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales" was not so good. Originally slated for release next year, it was taken off the calendar, and of this spring, it still needed a script. But perhaps the pieces are starting to come together? If producer Jerry Bruckheimer has his way, it won't be too long until Johnny Depp is once again blowing up the budget line on mascara.

At the recent Monte Carlo Television Festival, Bruckheimer shared a very minor update (via ScreenRant) about the gestating sequel, saying "...hopefully we’ll get started after the first of the year, that’s what we’re looking forward to.” Okay, so it hardly seems concrete at all, but it is a glimmer of hope we suppose, and we reckon "Kon-Tiki" directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg are still attached to helm the thing. But given that Bruckheimer and Disney have now split their longtime partnership, it would be a safe bet that this has to be coming in at the right price for the mouse house to say go. Why?

Will, in case you've forgotten, the 'Pirates' series still has the top slot when it comes the most expensive movies ever made. Business Insider recently ranked the film that broke the bank, at right at the top was 2007's "Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World's End," which cost a whopping $341.8 million. That catering table must've been off the chain. And for all that money spent, it still made less than its predecessor 'Dead Man's Chest' or the film that followed 'On Stranger Tides.' Ouch.

Anyway, you can see the 36 most expensive films ever made below, with finalized stats from Rope Of Silicon.
