Disney's next installment of Pirates of the Caribbean drops May 20, 2011.
I loved the first Pirates and severely disliked the other two for being drawn out, unnecessary, and pointless. However, I can't help but be excited for this!
So far, Johnny Depp is the only one attached (and it's rumored it took $55 million to nab him!) No word on if Kiera Knightly or Orlando Bloom will be returning, but I think it would be better if they didn't come back. They're storyline wrapped up nicely at the end of the 3rd one. I think it'd be better if Captain Jack goes off on his own adventure and meets a new band of miscreants.
There's not much news out yet, but the one thing I find interesting is that it's going to be directed by Rob Marshall. Maybe it'll be a musical? Johnny has done it before with Sweeney Todd, so it's not totally out of the question. I just don't see why they'd pick the director of Nine and Chicago if they weren't going to use that talent somehow. Maybe just one crazy drug/magic induced number? That's all I ask! I'm kidding...kind of.
What do you guys think? Are you still interested in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise?
Update: Pirates 4 to Begin Shooting in Hawaii
