Deadpool writers leave Pirates Of The Caribbean reboot
Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese have left the reboot of Pirates Of The Caribbean.
The writers, who are the creative minds behind both Deadpool movies, had been brought on by Disney to change up the hit franchise, but have now left the project.
According to Deadline, reports are conflicted on whether the pair will be replaced or if the reboot and the franchise will be scrapped.
2017's Pirates Of The Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge was the fifth instalment in the franchise grossed almost $800 million at the box office, bringing the franchise's total to over $4.5 billion overall.
However, the films are expensive to produce, with Salazar's Revenge costing more than $230 million to make.
A reported $90 million of which went on star Johny Depp's salary.
Disney have yet to comment on Wernick and Reese's departures.
