As previously mentioned, in February 2019, Disney announced thatDeadpoolwritersRhett Reese and Paul Wernickhad exitedPirates 6(via Deadline). Later in the year, Craig Mazin and Ted Elliott replaced them. In a December 2018 interview withThe Hollywood Reporter, Sean Bailey, the now-president of production atWalt Disney Studios, said he wanted to "bring in a new energy and vitality" to the franchise and that Reese and Wernick had been tasked with giving the film series a "kick in the pants." With the arrival of Mazin and Elliott in Reese and Wernick's place, have plans changed? Is Disney looking to go a more traditional route withPirates 6? It's difficult, if not impossible, to say for certain.

Still, as with all things, we can turn to the most recentPirates of the Caribbeanfilm to make some educated guesses about the plot of the next movie.Dead Men Tell No Tales featured a post-credits scene that teased the return of Davy Jones (Bill Nighy) as an antagonist; the Flying Dutchman captain sneaks into Will and Elizabeth's room as they sleep, prepares to attack them, and suddenly vanishes. Will believes he's dreaming, but the barnacles on the floor that he can't see prove Jones was really there.One could easily assume this means the nextPirates film will involve Jones to some degree.However,Pirates movies haven't always stayed on a continuous timeline. The fourth film in the series, On Stranger Tides, is a prequel set years before The Curse of the Black Pearl. The sixth film could go back in time again, or focus on new pirates entirely in between the existing films. We might not hear from Davy Jones again until the seventh or eighthPOTC movie.

Many fans includingScreenRant's Lauren Coates have argued thatPirates of the Caribbean 6should focus on Redd,a once-problematic character from the original Pirates of the Caribbean theme park ride. In the original version of the attraction, Redd was a captive being sold in a bride auction. In 2018, the ride was updated and Redd became a female pirateauctioning off the goods she stole from the village. Gillan's alleged involvement with Pirates 6could certainly turn that idea into a more solid theory, since both she and the animatronic figure in the ride have red hair.
