The good fellas over at Cinema Blend thinks they know what the sure-to-be-made (big piles of money will make uncertainties VERY certain) “Pirates of the Caribbean 4″ sequel will be all about, and who is coming back and who isn’t. (Hint: Johnny Depp is coming back. Like, DUH. They can’t make a “Pirates” hamburger without asking this guy to front it; he’s that associated with the franchise by now.) So what’s Captain Jack Sparrow going to be up to in the fourth installment? Flying, diving, searching — you know, pirate stuff.
Says Cinema Blend:
That’s right, Pirates 4 will cast aside Will and Elizabeth to make it an all Jack Sparrow movie. That won’t be the only change Disney is planning to make when the series continues though. Our scooper says, “the ending of Pirates 3, the fountain of youth story might not be the only story they might used the next pirate’s film. The fountain story could used in another form to introduce the story for Pirates 4… the next film might be a departure from the same formula of the last three movies as well, meaning that Jerry Bruckheimer could be planning to enter the realm of Science Fiction this time around and it could be the heart of a new trilogy with Jack Sparrow and his crew of misfits. Some of the brainstorming going around involves some Jules Verne type of scenarios involving some pretty big flying machines, a man who wants to rule more than just the ocean, a encounter with the most famous and dangerous pirate of all, a race to get to a lost world (Hint, Hint) and Jack and his crew going to where no pirate has gone before (No, its not space but Disney had made animated movie about this place before with Michel J Fox voicing one of the characters).”
CB’s scooper also tells them that the Mouse plans the movie sometime between 2009 and 2011, which means there is a possibility it might never happen at all. When enough time has passed, will Depp want to come back, even for the quoted $35-40 million payday?
Then again, that is a lot of money…
