Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales has had its release date pushed back.

Disney confirmed yesterday (Tuesday September 10) that the film will be moved from its original release date of July 10, 2015.

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer later told The Hollywood Reporter that he hopes the film will be ready for a Summer 2016 release adding: "We have an outline everyone loves but the script is not done."

Disney's production president, Sean Bailey told Deadline: "Like audiences around the globe, we have high expectations for Jack Sparrow's next adventure and we want to have all the right elements in place.

"We're not there yet and we want to make sure this project is everything these wonderful characters and, of course, the fans deserve."

Production is expected to begin later this year or early 2014 and Catch Me if You Can writer Jeff Nathanson will write the script.
