Pirates Of The Caribbean 6 Eyes Bill Nighy’s Davy Jones Back

Pirates of the Caribbean 6 has its ball still rolling with the possibility of having Bill Nighy back as Davy Jones.

Giant Freakin Robot reports that the franchise is developing the newest instalment to the franchise. And yes, it’s developing without Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow. The studio announced that the new movie will be a reboot entitled Pirates starring Margot Robbie. In order to reel in long time fans, the movie is likely to showcase what they call legacy characters. Bill Nighy’s Davy Jones is one of them.

Production has yet to confirm the presence of these legacy characters, let alone Davy Jones. However, it’s understandable that these characters will be the bridge of the story connecting the first movies to the future of the franchise. Tapping the treasure chest that is Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End will be a sound move for the production. Seasoned actor Bill Nighy unquestionably shone in the movie. His performance was not overshadowed by the CGI and make up, in fact, his performance used the technology to do his character better.

Christina Hodson will write the script. Two of her past works are Bumblebee and Birds of Prey. Birds of Prey is where she and Robbie first worked together. 2020 was the year when the Pirates reboot was announced by Disney. Some years and restrictions after, the studio is now showing signs that production is moving again.

How Davy Jones comes back or gets written in the Pirates again will surely be something fans are looking forward to. In the movie, it was implied that he died and his crew member’s son took his place on The Flying Dutchman. Including Davy Jones in the upcoming movie may very well be a hint as to the theme. Whether it be his story before his curse or his story after he was relieved of the curse.

How would Margot Robbie’s character fit in this narrative? Toying with the idea of prequel, maybe she is a long-lost daughter? or the one that is instrumental in his quest that led to steering The Flying Dutchman. And if they are bringing Davy Jones back in the storyline, does that mean there will be a need for Orlando Bloom’s Will Turner?

The fact is there is still the great difficulty of proceeding with a Pirates of the Caribbean movie without Johnny Depp. Captain Jack Sparrow is Pirates of the Caribbean. Ultimately, Johnny Depp is Captain Jack Sparrow. Hodson will have to burrow further into the lore of the pirates and weave a bigger tapestry to unravel a story without Jack. How will they explain his absence? Will he even actually exist in the storyline? Will it take place in a different time? One when either Sparrow is no longer alive or not yet existing.

Either the writing has very little room or it will have all the room it can get. Maybe they will do an adventure that happened in the other side of the world.

But again, could that work? Time will tell.
