Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg, the directing duo who gave us the fantastic Norwegian flick, "Kon-Tiki," will be helming the fifth installment of the popular "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise according to Deadline. And they were given the stamp of approval by Disney, Johnny Depp, and uber-producer Jerry Bruckheimer. Once a deal has been agreed upon, the directors will prepare the huge movie for a possible late year or early January production start.
This may be a good thing based on the duo's Oscar-nominated Best Foreign Language film "Kon-Tiki." If you haven't seen the film yet, it's now available on DVD. Yup, it's set in water which is a good thing if you're making a "Pirates" movie.
