Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides begins production and reveals more plot details

06.21.2010

Walt Disney Studios announced today that production is starting on PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES.

The fourth film in the franchise is being directed by Rob Marshall (CHICAGO, NINE). Veteran PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN writers Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio penned the script. Johnny Depp returns to his role as Captain Jack Sparrow along with a cast of regulars and newbies: Penelope Cruz, Ian McShane, Astrid Berges-Frisbey, Sam Claflin, Geoffrey Rush, and Kevin R. McNally.

Now, here's the plot for you:

In this action-packed tale of truth, betrayal, youth and demise, Captain Jack Sparrow crosses paths with a woman from his past (Penelope Cruz), and he’s not sure if it’s love—or if she’s a ruthless con artist who’s using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. When she forces him aboard the Queen Anne’s Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn’t know who to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past.

Rush reprises his role as the vengeful Captain Hector Barbossa, and Kevin R. McNally returns as Captain Jack’s longtime comrade Joshamee Gibbs. Claflin stars as a stalwart missionary, while Berges-Frisbey is transformed into a mysterious mermaid.

The film is slated to open May 20, 2011.

The lovely Penelope.

I liked the first Pirates movie.. the second had it's moments.. and the third had a couple of scenes I enjoyed. This sounds a shit ton better.. since the movies sucked when it turned to Elizabeth "Boring the fuck out of the Audience" Swann and Wooden Acting Will Turner. If I had to here him say "I love her" one more time the franchise would have collapsed on itself.

I liked all three previous Pirates movies, now that that is out of the way, Rob Marshall is a hack and a bloody half. He's got no fucking talent, and will destroy this movie, no matter how good the rest may be.

Dammit!

Should have ditched the writers and kept Gore. Oh well, hopefully they actually finished the script before they started filming.

also

also what i mean by the comparison to Indy is these should be separate adventures which aren't tide to characters and plots in the other pirate films. Lets start titling them like Indy as well. Captain Jack Sparrow on Stranger Tides.

Could be good only if...

They focus on Jack Sparrow. The mistake they made in the last two were focusing on bloom and keira. These movies should be like the first three Indiana Jones movies in that they follow an interesting character on a supernatural adventure. forget about a billion side characters with subplots and instead have some fun with the star of the franchise.
