The Last of Us Showrunner who is developing the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie

by Stewart Cole

In a recent interview with Los Angeles Timesco-creator and showrunner of The Last of Us Craig Mazin revealed that, prior to the WGA strike, he had begun developing a brand new Pirates of the Caribbean film with original franchise writer Ted Elliott. Mazin confirmed that Disney liked Elliot’s script for the untitled project, which was unexpected because the story they’re doing is “very weird.”

“We pitched it and thought there’s no way they’re going to buy it, it’s too weird. And they did,” Mazin said. “And then he wrote a fantastic script and the strike happened and everyone’s waiting around.”

What’s next for the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise?

It is currently unclear if Mazin’s project was one of the two films that Pirates of the Caribbean producer Jerry Bruckheimer had previously hinted at, or if this is an entirely new project. One of them is Margot Robbie’s film, which was previously cancelled. “We have a really good script,” Bruckheimer shared. “We developed two of them – one with Margot Robbie and one with a younger cast. Margot Robbie needs a little more work. The newest cast is close. Hopefully we’ll get both.”

Robbie’s project is part of Disney’s growing list of ongoing and upcoming live-action film adaptations of Disney theme parks, including the Scarlett Johansson-led Tower of Terror, the Jungle Cruise sequel with the return of Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt and the upcoming Big. The movie Thunder Mountain.
