Pirates 4 announced!

09.11.2009

That's right. It was announced at D23 that the new Pirates movie is called PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES. Is everyone excited? I'm a little jaded by the last one, but as long it doesn't end stupid or involve the Turner family pirate adventures, I'll see it.

Our own Jenna Busch is covering D23 and had this to say:

"It was announced today at an event at Disney's D23 Expo that Johnny Depp will be starring in the fourth PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN movie, ON STRANGER TIDES. They didn't reveal any details, but they did trot Depp out in full Jack Sparrow regalia. He appeared to be trying not to laugh as he asked the audience if they had seen a talking frog. Strange name, ON STRANGER TIDES. Not sure what could be stranger than a guy playing the organ with his tentacles...but hey, maybe this one will have a storyline that makes sense. (Honestly though, just give me Johnny Depp in eyeliner. I have a kind of thing for that.) The film is slated for release in Summer 2011."

'Had the audience seen a talking frog?' My mind is currently boggled. Jack Sparrow's antics are always delightful in my opinion. Hopefully it's more geared towards his character, and maybe Lord Cutler Beckett? Okay, so it probably won't have Beckett in it but I kind of have a thing for sexy English chairmen of the East India Trading Company.

Make sure you guys check back soon as we will have full coverage from D23. There's a ton of cool stuff I'm hearing about already.

Let's face it

The Curse of the Black Pearl is the only good film so far. The second one is just too much fantasy for a pirate film. The Kraken? Davy Jones with a tentacle beard? A guy with a hammer shark head?

The third film is just intelligence insulting, with the clones and... rock crabs. Oh, and when we finally got to see Calypso, some of us actually expected her to do something awesome and then... she turned into crabs.

So why the fuck should I look forward to a fourth movie, after all that

OK

Love the 1st one, enjoyed the 2nd, didn't really enjoy the 3rd but Depp was great in them all. Hopefully this time Bloom & Nightly will be out and fingers crossed that Russell Brand will appear as Cpt.Jack's brother.

Oh fuck me

The first was great, the second had some good moments but the storyline got kind of meh, and the third one was completely fucked. They should have kept it as a lighthearted Indiana Jones type fantasy adventure rather than the pseudo-epic they tried to make it into.

"Talking frog?" Guess it must have been a reference to The Princess and the Frog. I think.

I'm withholding judgment for now. Could be okay, could be horrific.

I love them all

All 3 Pirates of the Carribean movies are near and dear to my heart. I'm plenty interested in the further adventures of Captain Jack Sparrow and comapany.

if they were smart, they'd make it a prequel focused on the Sparrow/Barbossa beef and how it came to be

It's really cool that they appear to be hunkering down for a smaller story. That's a smart move. Too often, sequel writers feel pressured to "up the ante" in subsequent films, which is inevitably an upside-down pyramid-of-doom. The higher the stakes rise, the harder it is to keep things from collapsing into silliness and unbelieveability.

Also, it's good to see that there's finally a viable companion for Bond in the land of perpetual sequels.

I LIKE THE REFERENCE

...Nice reference to the Princess & The Frog by good ol' Depp. Hehe. Title doesn't seem as...epic(?) as I thought it would be, but hey, this one's the first in an all new trilogy (I'm guessing) so it makes sense that it's more suspenful / interesting than being epic.

Still, I'm all in for another Pirates. Not the biggest Pirates fan and didn't really drown in all the hype so I guess I enjoyed all three movies (although 3rd had nothing but great CGI in it). Good news.

this could go either way.

i thought the first three were pretty good actually, with the third only being a little too ridiculous at times.

The title sucks. I thought Dead Man's Chest was the best in the series. With At World's End being utter garbage,especially with the entire Calypso story-line. I think the sequel will definitely dwell deeper into the supernatural and mythological stuff given its title.

A trilogy was enough. But since there's no stopping Disney from wanting to make a ton of money I'm gonna go ahead and see how this one works out.

As long as they ditch Orlando and Kiera the film could actually be really fun. I enjoyed all 3 so far.

I say bring it on.

I like this news a lot. As long as Orlando Bloom is out and it focuses on Sparrow and Barbosa this will top the sequels. If the characters weren't so damn fun in the trilogy I probably wouldn't have cared for the other movies.

Talk about beating a dead horse. A trilogy of Pirate films was enough. Oh well, Disney can look forward to an injection of roughly a billion dollars worth of cash come 2011...cha-ching!

Dead man's Chest and At World's End sucked but On Stranger Tides will be awesome. Even the title blows.

Get a script that makes sense!!!

Please for the love of all that is good in this world do not make this film off a script that seems like it was written by monkeys who just got off their bananas and meds. It took me a while to recover from the horror that was the last two pirates films.

Pirates 2 and 3 are among the worst sequels I have ever seen. Seriously, in the exact same camp as Matrix sequels.

That being said, I loved the first one, and if this is the Jack and Barbossa buddy pic hinted at in the end of 3, I'll give it a chance (pending trailer).

Ouch.

This movie is already out to a bad start with a title like that. Its ironic the only good Pirates film was the one with the best title. We need these to be adventure stories. Think Indiana Jones.

That's why the first one was good. Felt like a Jones flick. So did the good parts of 2, until it jumped the Shark in the third act.

I wonder if this will be based on Tim Powers book "On Stranger Tides." Here's the cover text of the novel.

"The year is 1718. Blackbeard still terrorizes the Caribbean sea, one of the last pirates to challenge the reign of King George.
Sailing unwittingly into this unsavory company comes one John Chandagnac, bookkeeper and puppeteer. He seems an unlikely candidate for piracy, or the machinations of dark sorcery. But, christened Jack Shandy by a drunken pirate captain, he may turn out to be

Sounds similar to the first movie. A sunken ship crewed by zombies and an "unlikely candidate for piracy" (Will).

As dumb as the last two Pirates movies were, I have to say that I'm very excited about another movie. Depp as Jack Sparrow is worth the price of admission.
