Make that directors. “Pirates of the Caribbean 5” will see Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg (“Kon-Tiki”) direct the next installment in the popular franchise. “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” didn’t do too well domestically but was a big international hit with Johnny Depp returning as Jack Sparrow. That film also starred Penelope Cruz, Ian McShane and Sam Claflin and earned more than $1 billion worldwide. Disney isn’t going to let this franchise die, so I guess get ready for more high seas adventures. Rob Marshall (“Chicago”) directed that one.
