Geoffrey Rush to return as Barbosa in Pirates 4

Jun. 11, 2010by:

While PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES will have a host of new characters like Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Angelica (Penelope Cruz) and Scram (Stephen Graham), it's nice to see some familiar faces will be back. Both Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom won't be returning for the fourth film but Disney has just announced that Geoffrey Rush will return as Captain Barbosa. Rush will be one of only three actors, along with Johnny Depp and Kevin McNally (Gibbs), who will have appeared in all four films.

Just yesterday we speculated that PIRATES 4 might be delayed because of Depp's desire to take a break in between filming on THE TOURIST, which he and Angelina Jolie just wrapped, and STRANGERS TIDES. But in Rush's casting announcement, they're still sticking with the news that filming is set to begin later this month in Hawaii. No breaks for you, Johnny Depp!

Extra Tidbit: Rush is one Grammy award away from the coveted EGOT.

I wish they hadn't killed off Chow Yun-Fat so quickly. I'd love to see him back.

This is good news.. but how is Gibbs still running around in these movies? The guy's been completely useless for all 3 so far.

Yes my favorite character even though Johnny Depp is my favorite actor but Barbosa has always been my favorite in Pirates. The ending to Deads Mans Chest was so epic even the whole cast I heard didnt even know it would be Barbosa.

kudos

As far as I'm concerned (and that's all that really matters) All the POTC movies were freaking awesome when taken as a whole and not chopped into little bits as so many reviewers do. A new Saga in a different direction is going to be on the money especially with the cast they will be having. so kudus to Depp and Rush for their return

YESSSSS

Best news I heard in a long time. I absolutely adore Barbosa. He's the only real pirate in POTC. He should have his own movie.

ARRRR! That be good new's

The dynamic between Sparrow & Barbosa is "CLASSIC" and i'm glad it's going to continue, Also they dropped the dead weight of Will & Elizabeth ta boot. Pentel and Regetti were in all 3 movies are they not returning in this adventure?

I liked him more than Davey Jones (who was a tad overdone, IMO) so this is definitely good news.
