The reboot of Disney’s hit pirate film Pirates of the Caribbean seems to be back on track after hiring a new writer.

The movie reboot hit a major setback after Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick left the project.

But now, it seems that it’s ready to set sail once again and develop a new story with Craig Mazin, the creator of Chernobyl, on board together with veteran Pirates of the Caribbean writer Ted Elliot.

Regarding Johnny Depp’s return to the film, it is still unclear if he would reprise his iconic role as Jack Sparrow. According to reports, there’s still no word if Depp will be part of Disney’s future plans.

Previous writer of the film series Stuart Beattie talked about the possibility of Depp not returning to the franchise last October.

“I think he’s had a great run,” Beattie said. “Obviously, he’s made that character his own and it’s become the character he’s most famous for now.

“And kids all over the world love him as that character so I think it’s been great for him, it’s been great for us, so I’m just very, very happy about it.”

And the film production chief of Disney, Sean Bailey, said that they wanted to “bring in a new energy and vitality” to the said franchise.

I guess we just have to wait and see.
