It’s been three years since the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean movie hit cinemas in the form of Salazar’s Revenge aka Dead Men Tell No Tales. But since then the future of the franchise has been uncertain. And the big question is whether or not Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow will be back.
After all, his pirate is the central lead of the franchise, appearing in every movie to date.
And now The DisInsider’s Skyler Shuler has teased some big news is coming.
Tweeting a gif of the Pirates of the Caribbean logo, he tweeted: “Hopefully, I can confirm some stuff soon!”
Perhaps this is an announcement of a sixth film starring a returning Depp?

Earlier this month, Lee Arenberg, who played Pintel in the first three Pirates movies affirmed another sequel is certainly being considered.
The actor told Kendall Talks TV: “They’re definitely talking about it, as far as I know.
Asked if he would like to return, Arenberg said: “I mean yeah, of course, obviously.
“But they’ve already done two without us so…[laughs].”
However, the outlet claimed that if Depp does return as Sparrow for Pirates of the Caribbean 6, it would only be for a supporting role.
Instead, a new female pirate is expected to take a central focus.
According to rumours from a couple of years ago shared by The DisInsider, this could be a character called Redd.
The red-haired pirate is a character from the Disneyland ride that the film series is based on.
