Caribbean Pirates 4

06.11.2009

Well, it turns out that Disney is pushing a fourth PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN film. Coming Soon caught up with Jerry Bruckheimer and spoke to him a little about that franchise, and their planned adaptation of THE LONE RANGER. According to Bruckheimer, the priority is most definitely "Pirates." He said that "it's a great franchise... A beloved character and Johnny's really excited about coming back to Captain Jack. He certainly is interested in Tonto, but Disney's priority is to get 'Pirates' made first. You never know what's going to happen, but they would like it." He also added that the two original writers, Terry Rossio and Ted Elliot, were "writing 'Pirates' as we speak," and he said it was "funny" and a "whole new way of going".

So how are we feeling about this? I guess you can never get enough Johnny Depp as Captain Jack, really. It's just the small matter of all the shit that they pad around him. He's like LeBron James except not a really, really sore loser.
Extra Tidbit: Elliott and Rossio originally pitched the movie to the Disney executives in the early '90s, only to be rejected.

Good

I'm just gonna go out on a limb here and assume that the people that thought the sequels were too complicated and not focused enough on Jack, have never read anything longer than your average comic book. MOST good fiction ties in several story lines, while the main character is kind of like the linchpin that holds the stories together. Just like the last two movies.

Ohhh, guys, the third movie wasn't that bad. Plus, it established that Elf boy and wassername won't be coming back!

I would have to agree with most people and say the sequels should have focused on Jack Sparrow and not be the big bloated things they were. This just sounds like they are milking a dead cow for all its worth.

But you have heard of me....

I love the first film and enjoyed the hell out of the sequels. I'm totally ready to start it up again as I do miss Captain Jack Sparrow.

Meh.

I don't think this series is salvagable. They should of made each movie a seperate and complete adventure, like the Indy films, but for some reason they decided to tie everything together. Barbossa coming back, which ruined the ending of the first movie, and they even had to bring the dog with the keys in its mouth back. Why? Why couldn't it of just been Jack meeting new people and doing something different?

Jack Sparrow only!

I'm on board for another, just leave that annoying Keira Knightley and that boring Orlando Bloom out of it, Johnny Depp can carry the film on his own.

I still really love the first film. But I hate the sequels. Overlong, and to convoluted. They tried way to hard to stay as close to the original as possible. To many characters to follow and such.

im ready for it

i agree. you really cant get enough of johnny depp as captain jack but 2 and 3 were both garbage and the movies just werent really great all around like the 1st was. hopefully they can get something going for them this time, and if theyve found a new way of going, lets hope its in the right direction.

My sister works at Disney and heard rumors like, "AS many sequels as possible... prequels, spin-offs... 10 or so..." Good Grief! I have just two words, "Lone Ranger!"

I enjoyed the first one, loved the second one and didn't like the third one at first (but it's grown on me with subsequent viewings.) I wouldn't mind a fourth I suppose if there's a decent script.

Is this going to be about the Fountain of Youth? I am a bit iffy on this one, they will probably turn this into a trilogy after the trilogy.

but i do enjoy the films, yes, even At World's End

Well if they do make it I certainly won't be there. Pirates 3 is officially my least favourite movie of all time. I enjoyed the first movie, thought the 2nd one was too long and the 3rd one was just pants in every way. Just got too weird....

Pitch

"You guys all know that amusement park ride, Pirates of the Caribbean? Well, wait until you see what we've got with that...."

Yeah, lol, seems pretty simple to reject them, especially looking at how badly Cutthroat Island bombed. Thank God they managed to pitch it right.

I'm definitely down for Pirates 4. Pirates 3 wasn't exactly a perfect ending like The Bourne Ultimatum, among three-quels of that year.

Could go either way

If they take their time and put effort in, I'm sure it'll be good. If they toss it out there just for the cash like the did 3, then I wouldn't even bother.

First one was good, the next two were boring, self-indulgent exercises in milking a cash cow. Surely Depp has better things to do? On a side note, can't wait for the Rum Diary.

I enjoyed the first two Pirates movies but the third one was awful. What was my least favorite part of those movies though? Captain Jack Sparrow. I HATE, HATE, HATE, HATE, HATE that character. He is easily the worst part of the films IMO. He's not funny, he's not cool, he's just dumb. Whatever happened to just having plain old trilogies? Keep this franchise dead.

This will probably be more fun than the third if they focus mainly on Sparrow and Barbosa. I'll be glad if they don't include Bloom and Knightly.

I'm game for both film project ideas-especially "The Lone Ranger" w/ Depp as a POSSIBLE candidate for sidekick-Tonto?! That would be cool!

Sure I love Depp as Cpt. Jack. I also love Ford as Indiana Jones, but we all know how Indy 4 turned out. To an extent I'll probably enjoy this no matter what, I liked the original 3 enough, but I could just as easily do without it.

I agree with mostly all of you.. the second and third were too much about the ridiculously crammed who's on who's side storyline that it just rubbed some people the wrong way. Bring it back to the first one, with a nice adventure style story and it'll be huge.

Thoo I disagee with u for the first time, Lebron ain't a sore loser, his teammates never showed up and he brought back the old school rivalry feel without hugging someone who just beat him. I dug it.

Pirates 2 and 3

My problem with the sequels, was they were way to complex within the narratives... to many plot points, and story lines. The first one was easy to follow and fun. IN the sequels, you were trying to figure out what they were trying to do...

Ok

I'm there. First one was great, two others were not great, but entertaingin still. I think fourth one should be about Sparrow's earlier adventures, like sacking Nassau port without firing a shot. Or something...

Oh, and I agree, create new characters. It's not like I hated Will & Elizabeth, but their storylines were wrapped pretty good in first three.

Great!

There's potential for a great movie with this character. Like others have said: as long as it is about Jack and not all those hundreds of other characters. I just hope that Gore Whatsisname is kept away from the director's chair and we get a lean, fun, exciting film.

The movies themselves are a love hate relationship, but I cant get enough of Jack Sparrow. My little brother will be thrilled, he couldnt stop talking about when theyre making the next one when he saw the end of the 3rd movie. I just hope they stop after this one...

Great! Love the Pirates flicks but agree that the script should be finished before any sort of filming begins. As long as the cut out Orlando Bloom and Kiera Knightley from the 4th one, I'm happy.

I remember a while back reading that the idea was to make a sort of buddy flick with Captain Jack and Barbossa. I'd definitely pay to see that!

I thought Dead Man's Chest was great. I just wish that they would have made each Pirates chapter stand alone instead of backwards manufacturing them to make all three seem like they were part of an overall trilogy (since the first was originally a stand-alone).

Let's just make sure they finish writing the script before filming it. That was the mistake of the last 2. They rushed it. These are great characters and fun-filled movies. Yo Oh !
