Who the hell are they? They are the guys behind the Norwegian hit KON-TIKI that Disney have hired to take on Jack Sparrow’s next adventure. It’s a big win from both sides as the directing team have shown amazing finesse in shooting scenes on the open seas (as seen in KON TIKI) and Disney will be paying them a fraction of what they would normally to a top tier director. As previously reported Johnny Depp is back on board for a 5th go round.
Ronning and Sandberg were attached to direct SPECTRAL over at Legendary Pictures but that deal fell apart which was when Disney swooped in.
