Pirates 4 shoots in Hawaii this summer?

Jan. 19, 2010by:

A fourth PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN movie has seemed sketchy for a while. Sure, Disney already sunk a sword into a release date of May 20, 2011.

And there are creative people involved, including indispensable star Johnny Depp (despite his chagrin over the regime change at the Mouse House). But it just never felt like a sure thing. Even director Rob Marshall said this just last month (before his NINE tanked at the box office): "We're still trying to figure out if it's going to all happen," and "I would need a script first."

Well, Hawaii is definitely under the impression it will come together. According to this press release at Coming Soon, "the islands of Kaua'i and O'ahu will be sites for the production of the feature film, which will begin shooting this summer and is slated to be released in summer 2011. The production is expected to generate an estimated $85 million in direct and indirect spending in Hawai'i, providing a needed economic boost for the state's economy as well as creating hundreds of jobs for local residents. "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" will star Johnny Depp, returning to his iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow.

The film is produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, and directed by Rob Marshall. The writers are Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, and the executive producers are Mike Stenson, Chad Oman, Barry Waldman, Elliott, Rossio and John DeLuca. "Disney's long-term commitment to Hawai'i - from ABC's 'LOST' to the new Disney resort on O'ahu scheduled to open in 2011, and now the upcoming filming of 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' - is a testament to the company's confidence in our state as a great place to do business," said Governor Lingle."

Extra Tidbit: Aside from the people who love the revenue stream on which the Black Pearl floats, does anyone want or need this movie? And seriously, why IS the rum gone?

If Dep is on board, we'll all enjoy this to some degree. So I'll allow this.

If they start filming this summer then it will be good thing, but if they don't this is going to screw the people of Hawaii who believe they are going to see a revenue increase. I enjoyed seeing the Pirate movies, even though they weren't able to be as good or as fun as the first. I will give the new one a try.

All I read in that article was " Pirates for will make a lot of money" which I already assumed was the only reason this was happening.

Still a fan

I overall liked the POTC series. They aren't masterpieces by any stretch, but they are fun!

It's a real shame they're not returning to the actual Caribbean to shoot the films. I'm a resident of St. Vincent where they shot the original movies, and this country could really use the money the production brings in.

I've always liked the Pirates movies. The third one was a little weak, but only because of story...Depp and the effects were awesome. I'm down for another installment...if only because I selfishly want another Pirates Blu-ray to show off!

I'll see it...

But if it is not better than 2 or 3 I will not see a 5th! It may take me 3 times, but I learn my lesson.

2 and 3 blew.

I don't need this movie but I'll be honest, I want this film. All three ( yes, even the third one) were all extremely fun times at the movies.

I say bring it on!
