Pirates film not on Disney schedule

The next Pirates of the Caribbean sequel has been temporarily docked.

The release date for the fifth instalment in the film series starring Johnny Depp has been removed from Disney's distribution schedule. It was originally scheduled to launch July 10, 2015.

Disney previously announced that the fifth Pirates film will be directed by Kon-Tiki filmmakers Joachim Ronning and Espen Sandberg and was expected to begin production next year.

The move comes after Disney's The Lone Ranger failed at the box office this summer and the studio moved the debut of Marvel's Ant-Man from November 6, 2015, to July 31, 2015.

The most recent Pirates instalments, At World's End and On Stranger Tides, were both released in time for Memorial Day weekend in 2007 and 2011.
