A reboot without Johnny Depp may not happen after all.

A few months ago, Disney confirmed that they were working on a reboot of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and even had writers attached already.

USC partners with nonprofit to sponsor African-American youth art project

For the second year, USC has partnered with local nonprofit LA Commons to celebrate the African-American experience.
