Both ‘Pirates of the Caribbean 5′ and ‘Beverly Hills Cop 4′ May Begin Filming This Year

Three of the last four blockbusters that Jerry Bruckheimer produced for the Walt Disney Company – specifically the ones that did not feature the Jack Sparrow character – under-performed at the box office and/or failed to kickoff a lucrative new franchise as intended. Hence, it didn’t come as a shock when the pair went their separate ways in 2013, now that the Mouse House has Marvel Studios’ Cinematic Universe as a primary source for cash flow (and intends to take advantage of new-acquisition Lucasfilm to usher in a new era of Star Wars multi-platform entertainment).

Bruckheimer was quick to land on his feet after his ended his first-look deal with Disney; in fact, he set up shop at Paramount just a few months after the news went public. Part of Paramount’s deal with the producer includes prioritizing development on another Beverly Hills Cop movie, as well as the long-incoming Top Gun sequel.

Bruckheimer discussed plot details for the aforementioned prospective Tom Cruise vehicle this week during an interview with Bloomberg TV; during the same interview (hat tip to THR), he provided an update on the potential start dates for production on Beverly Hills Cop 4 and Pirates of the Caribbean 5 (a.k.a. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales).

Disney CEO Bob Iger recently revealed that Pirates of the Caribbean 5 hasn’t been officially green-lit yet, which did come as something of a surprise. After all, even though the project had been delayed from its original 2015 release date to allow for additional pre-production development, it already has a pair of directors lined up (Kon-Tiki helmers Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg), along with a script by Jeff Nathanson (Rush Hour 2 & 3, Tower Heist) and series lead Johnny Depp ready to reprise as Captain Jack Sparrow.

Bruckheimer told Bloomberg TV that he’s hoping the fifth Pirates installment will begin shooting this fall “if everything lines up properly,” which could be easier said than done – though, it still appears to be feasible. Depp is expected to work on the gangster biopic Black Mass this summer, before filming on Disney’s Alice in Wonderland sequel begins (with Depp reprising as the Mad Hatter), sometime in the early going of 2015 most likely. That leaves an opening for Pirates of the Caribbean 5 to film in between those other Depp projects, which presumably is what Bruckheimer is hoping to take advantage of (judging by his comment).

Meanwhile, Beverly Hills Cop 4 could begin production as early as this summer, according to Bruckheimer, also who says that the script is nearly complete and We’re going to take Eddie [Murphy] back to Detroit. He’s going to be in Beverly Hills … so we’re going to have some fun with him.” Brett Ratner (who’s currently putting the finishing touches on this summer’s Hercules) is reportedly set to direct the long-rumored project, which found new life after the Beverly Hills Cop TV series pilot – starring Brandon T. Jackson as the son of Murphy’s Axel Foley – was scrapped.

Both of these franchise movies are dubious prospects from a creative perspective, going off the diminishing critical returns for previous installments – to mention nothing of the people who are involved behind the scenes on these new chapters. A fifth Pirates of the Caribbean promises bigger ticket sales than a Beverly Hills Cop installment headlined by Eddie Murphy at this point, but it also come with greater risks since it ought to have a much larger budget by comparison.

That is to say: we’ll have to wait and see which – if either (or both) – of these particular Bruckheimer projects actually becomes a real thing in the foreseeable future. Let us know in the comments section if these films sound interesting to you, or if you’ve gotten your fill of either one (if not both) of the franchises in question.

  1. Eddie Murphy hasn’t been funny since ‘Nutty Professor’. He was also good in Dreamgirls

    He should make a sequel to ‘Coming to America’ or ‘Trading Places’. Those were classic Murphy comedies

    • He wasn’t funny in The Nutty Professor. I always say Shrek was his last funny movie (only the first one, the sequels were terrible).

      I’ll watch though based on the goodwill of the first two BHC films. Still don’t see the need in having another sequel this late in the game but I guess he needs to try and relive the glory days in his most famous role.

      • You know there were three Beverly Hill Cop Movies right?

        But then again part 3 was so trashly craptastic that I too forget it even existed…

        • It seems obvious that he knew about bhc hence him saying “the first two BHC films”. Your DERP may vary.

  2. When was pirates of The Caribbean 5 green lit I thought Disney said they were passing on it ?

    • @Bruce Davidson
      No, They never said that. What is going on with Pirates 5 is that Jeff Nathanson is still working on the script and Johnny Depp and the Directors, are working with him on it so that Pirates 5 can move forward in Pre-Production and Production, etc.

    • They pushed it back from 2015 to late 2016 then one of the higher ups admitted they hadn’t even started work on a script but that was a few months ago.

      • @Dazz
        Actually, They started re-writing Pirates 5′s script back on September 10th 2013, that they are working on now as we speak.

  3. Beverly Hills Cop is one of my top five favorite movies of all time. I, like many people, didn’t like the third one that much. Still, I would like to see the fourth one.

  4. I think they are kicking a dead mule on these two projects. Yeah, they’ll get some revenue from the popularity of previous movies, but IMO they just don’t need any more.
    There are too many other stories out there that would make great screen adaptations. I don’t understand why they feel they have to keep coming back to the same old tired ideas.

  5. I am thoroughly un-interested in a fourth Beverly Hills Cop installment. Anyone remember the last time Eddie Murphy was funny?

    • Shrek 2?

      • No, Shrek 1.

  6. i love the pirates trilogy but i dont think depp can carry the movie on his own even though he was probably the best about the trilogy. i feel like its that hulk situation where he is amazing when he has parts in the avengers but he cant carry the whole movie.

    i would like a pirates remake but i they are gonna milk depp till he says no more. i love the whole pirate thing and i wish they made more movies like these. 2 was probably my favorite.

    • That’s the mistake Disney made. Jack Sparrow became popular so they made the films more about him and it just didn’t work so well. He’s a person that needs to be a side character that reacts to the main plot around him, not presented as the focal point.

      I disagree about Hulk though. He made zero impact in The Avengers other than the Thor fight and that one punch he did near the end and TIH showed him off a lot better.

  7. I’m in for another Pirates movie but they really need better writing and better story.

    The story needs to just go in a new direction/environment. Something fresh like Bermuda Triangle or Atlantis would be good cause we could see a new set of creatures and landscape.

    Also,
    At the end of the last one I was really hoping for a scene where Sparrow shows up at Elizabeth’s house with a vile of water from the Fountain of Youth. That way it would imply that she could live forever if she wanted to since Will is stuck immortal.

  8. Setting the next PotC movie in the 13 colonies during the American Revolution would be good too.

    • Somebody clearly doesn’t know their history timeline

  9. I like the POTC movies, but man that last one sucked.

    However KON TIKI was fantastic! I loved it! Maybe we’ll get a stripped down (relatively speaking) movie thats more Pirate movie and less, DEPP staggering in the dark, eh?

    If Black Sails can show us a great pirate sea battle, then why in the hell can’t POTC do it? AVAST YE SCURVY DOGS! FIRE!

  10. Here is a new video interview with Jerry Bruckheimer talking about Pirates 5 starting at the 3:37 second mark of the video :) . It is from the Bloomberg tv channel that he was interviewed at sometime recently ;) .

  11. although the first tripogy was the best the first instalment was the top in some sort but if you djudje wich one of the tree had the best action ship battles duels and browls i would say the third one had that.

    Now as for the fourth one to work they have to make it realy big not huge thoight, but big enought using the same concept of the first to be plain story simple, less drama and more action orinted.making it like the third with real ships, and hey have to get their hands on buliding them not CGI, this time mr Bruckheimer it will work?

    the last one had non oof it they stripped the pacing, made it too much comedic and Blackbierd was a waste to boring. The ship was the same Black Perals and they rebild it to look like Queen Ann’s Revenge.
    Less action only mutiny on the same ship and the ship didn’t move from it’s harbour. to boring and waste of time. i didn’t like it.

    You have to show audicances real battles scenes stroming between to ships either Pirate Ships or between a Pirate and navy Ship, and those battles you have to make them epic with canonballs not with nifes and forks and crap like you did on the first pirate movie.

    You can have something of your own you have to stick and learn from the classic if you ealy want Pirats 5 to be sucessful.

    Black Sales worked baeacus ethey are made realistic and used the old formula from the classics, the only let down of th series is to much dram and charcter driven, but the action was spo on.
    I suggest you please watch some old pirate movies ala Captain Blood or Sea Hawk before you move into Production, see and learn if you havem’t waht is master of filmaking Eroo Flyn on the mast and sawshing and buckle over the seven seas….

    • @pelasgian
      Yeah, I was disappointed that Pirates 4 had no ship battle scenes. Not even one ship battle scene was in it. That was the one thing that disappointed me greatly about Pirates 4. So, Hopefully, Pirates 5 will have plenty of ship battle scenes!

  13. Looking forward to POTC 5 since Pirates is one of my favourite franchises. No interest in BHC4 though. I haven’t even seen one of the originals yet.

    • @smike
      Samere here. The Pirates of the Caribbean movies are one of favorite movie franchises as well.

  14. @smike
    Opps, I meant ‘Same here’ at the beginning of my previous reply to you, lol :P .

  15. The fact that Beverly Hills Cop has a release date for March 25th 2016, gives me hope because that means that Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales will get a release date soon. Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales is expected to come out in Summer 2016, so if it gets a release date soon because both movies are produced by Jerry Bruckheimer then Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Men Tell No Tales will likely get a release date soon for May 2016 or for July 2016.
