We previously reported that Johnny Depp would be reprising his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in the upcoming "Pirates of the Caribbean 5". The fifth film in the franchise will be returning to the big-screen in 2015. In order to achieve that release date, the production is missing one key factor; a director.

Disney has reportedly compiled a short list of directors that they would be interested in seeing helm the picture. The list includes Fredrik Bond ("The Necessary Death of Charlie Countryman"), Rupert Sanders ("Snow White and the Huntsman"), and directing duo Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg ("Bandidas", "Kon-Tiki").

Apparently the frontrunners right now are Rønning and Sandberg, but no formal offer has been made. Disney is said to be looking to lock a helmer within the next couple of weeks, in order to begin production at the end of this year.

Who would you like to see helm "Pirates 5"? Let us know in the comments section below!

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
