Joachim Rønning, Espen Sandberg directing Pirates of the Caribbean 5. The choosing of Joachim Rønning, Espen Sandberg for Pirates of the Caribbean 5 (2015) answers the question of who will direct fifth franchise film. Production will begin later in the year, possibly beginning in January 2014, and will star Johnny Depp.

On the script for Pirates of the Caribbean 5:

Many forget but a script for Pirates of the Caribbean 5 was completed before Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides even hit theaters in 2011. That film was then hammered critically and producer Jerry Bruckheimer called for rewrites on the fifth film, saying the script wasn’t good enough. Director Rob Marshall suggested he would direct it before taking another gig, Into the Woods, also with Johnny Depp. Disney then brought in Nathanson to rewrite the original script by Terry Rossio.

On Joachim Rønning:

Joachim Rønning is a Norwegian film director who usually works in a team with Espen Sandberg – both natives of Sandefjord, Norway. As a directing team, they go under the name of Roenberg (a combination of their surnames). They co-own one of Scandinavia’s largest production companies for commercials called Motion Blur. In 2006 their feature film debut, Bandidas, starring Penélope Cruz and Salma Hayek, was released worldwide through EuropaCorp and Twentieth Century Fox.
