Pirates' Pause

Is somebody gun shy?

... Disney on Tuesday put ”Pirates of the Caribbean 5″ on hold. The next installment in the franchise from producer Jerry Bruckheimer and star Johnny Depp had been scheduled to be released on July 10, 2015. ...

Disney’s summer 2015 schedule had been crowded. On Monday, the studio shifted its Edgar Wright Marvel movie “Ant-Man” from November to July 15. It also has “Avengers: Age of Ultron” set for May 1 and Pixar’s “Inside Out” slated for June 19. ...

I would say the Mouse is trying to insure all its bets are covered. It's spending big gobs of money on its tent poles and wants to insure there are profits at the end of the production pipe.

Wouldn't surprise me if there are on-going negotiations to get the costs down for their big fat franchises, particularly the pirate movies.
