With HBO’s Chernobyl having won a huge amount of praise and plaudits earlier this year, the main mind behind the show has now landed himself a crack at one of Disney’s flagship franchises.
Courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter, Chernobyl creator Craig Mazin has been brought in to write the House of Mouse’s upcoming reboot of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. Mazin will be joined on writing duties by Ted Elliott – who just so happens to have co-wrote four previous outing for the Pirates series.
Before nabbing two Emmy Awards for the utterly stunning Chernobyl, Mazin was actually best known for penning two Scary Movie pictures and The Huntsman: Winter’s War, in addition to writing and directing the turd-tastic Superhero Movie spoof.
Right now, details on this Pirates of the Caribbean reboot remain scarce, with no plot details known, no director attached, and still no confirmation whether or not Johnny Depp will be involved.
As ever, expect more on this new Pirates of the Caribbean as it continues to develop.
