The billion-dollar franchise saw its fifth exit launched last year with Captain Jack Depp sailing into the dusk once more.
But while the plans for Pirates of the Caribbean 6 have been in development, it now looks like the movie will be a reboot.
According to Deadline, Disney has had early conversations with the writers of Deadpool and Zombieland, Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, on how to write a script.
At this point, it is unclear if the change would mean the end of Depp's role as Jack Sparrow.
Speaking with Digital Spy, the producer was not in favor of Sparrow being rewritten either.
Bruckheimer said: "I just do not see it." The secret of any successful franchise is to choose talented people, and Johnny is absolutely key to the success of Pirates.
"He is a unique character, a character so endearing and a character so irreverent, all in one.
It has not changed at all! That is what is so good about him. He's still the same guy that was in the first one. "
