Ryan Reynolds is topping a wish list of hot Hollywood swashbucklers ready to rock the boat and star in a refreshened reboot of Disney’s billion-dollar “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise.
“The witty writers behind ‘Deadpool’ are being wooed to breathe new life into the fantasy films,” a surly scallywag told The National ENQUIRER.
“They know how to write for Ryan, so don’t be surprised when the hunk climbs onboard!
He and his gorgeous actress wife, Blake Lively, have been eager to do a fun project together — and this could be it!”
Great hook, right? As for money-strapped Johnny Depp, who reportedly made over $300 million for the ol’ splashy adventures, that waterlogged ship may have already sailed into the horizon.
“They could bring booze-guzzling Jack Sparrow back for a wee cameo — if Johnny doesn’t ask a pirate’s ransom.”
