Disney is looking into rebooting its very own Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.

According to Deadline, the animation studio – alongside producing powerhouse Jerry Bruckheimer – is targeting Deadpool writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick for script duties.

It’s currently unknown whether its plans to reboot the franchise means Johnny Depp’s tenure as Jack Sparrow has come to an end. The actor has played the role in five films across 14 years which have accumulated box office takings of over $4.5 billion making it the twelfth biggest franchise of all time.

The most recent Pirates film, Dead Men Tell No Tales, was released in 2015 with director Joachim Rønning stating it was “only the beginning of the final adventure.”
