Ready for a fifth Pirates of the Caribbean movie? Disney sure is!

01.13.2011

Audiences will never get tired of Johnny Depp's slurring swashbuckler Captain Jack Sparrow.

At least, that's what Disney is thinking/hoping/praying, since they've already raised the sails for a fifth PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN movie. Yarrr, it's true. Yarrr.

While ON STRANGER TIDES still drifts toward a May release, the House of Mouse has PIRATES regular Terry Rossio on tap to write another voyage of Sparrow and his scurvy (and sometimes sexy) crew.

Rossio's collaborator Ted Elliott has apparently been tossed into the mouth of the Kraken, so he's steering the ship himself this time, but Deadline says Disney is trying to get TIDES director Rob Marshall back for another adventure.

Extra Tidbit: Unless he sails through a whirlpool-wormhole and winds up in the modern day, what else could Captain Jack possibly encounter on the high seas of his time period? (Or shit, did I just give them an idea for the next one?)

Stop these stupid ideas about modern day setting. That's crazytalk and would be awful.

WHY???

the first 3 were terrible. including that 2nd one I was so damn bored and angry I felt like having sharks come and eat me alive. There all the same useless crap too. Depp acting the same and ships doing nothing. In the 5th one kill everyone.

I can actually picture Jack Sparrow on skis jumping a shark and Johnny Depp somehow making that look cool.

THIS Audience member is extremely tired of rehashed crap. Loved the first Pirate film but hated the two CGI filled messes that followed. What makes them think I want more of the same???

This information has been around for a while now, that they are already thinking Pirates 5, and 6 for that matter.

No

I sure am cool with it, but I think the majority of people WILL get tired of of it, by the 5th Pirates flick. And I think it's possible Johnny Depp may have gone a little insane. Playing a pirate 5 times Johnny? Really? But maybe this is his Rocky/Rambo kinda thing. Oh well, better this than The Tourist 2. :)

I'd rather them focus on making Pirates 4 the best it can be and then maybe making just one more to end the franchise on a high note after the dissapointing Pirates 2 and 3.

I still can't sit through the first Pirates without falling asleep, it's very boring. And the third one, while visually amazing, was pretty tedious as well. Dead Man's Chest on the other hand was awesome! You can really feel the loss of Gore Verbinski in the trailer for On Stranger Tides... it all looks a little bit bland, but maybe it ends up being fun. Disney obviously thinks he did a good job of it.

I could see Atlantis being an interesting premise for a POTC film. I really don't think there needed to be any Pirates movies after the first, but they make too much money to turn down so I understand the need to keep churning these things out.

I still want the series to end with an immortal Sparrow sitting at a bar in modern day Florida, humming the bottle of rum song, and wishing for death because of the changed times.

OR...Jack Sparrow becomes immortal, they skip to modern times, they show Johnny Depp (as the actor Johnny Depp) sitting in his hugeass home somewhere, drinking a bottle of rum, then he turns to the camera and winks to the audience as the Pirates main theme starts playing. BAM...cut to black! Biggest 'WTF' moment in the history of cinema.

polarboy: fun idea, though it would beg the question 'who made all johnny depp's films when he was younger looking?'

Hmm. Can't really answer that question but hey, we're talking about immortality and time-benders here so I'm going to say it isn't impossible.

I don't mind the Pirate films. As long as Jack Sparrow is around they can keep coming out with these things.

Like Indiana Jones, James Bond, or Rocky Balboa, Jack Sparrow is one of the characters I like so much that I will find even their worst films enjoyable on some level. However, I'm still not sure about this new movie and Marshall, so it might be better to stop after this film.

If he finds the fountain of youth, no need for time travel realy as they could just set it modern day with him drinking from the fountain... anyway modern day is a lame idea, what's he gonna do befriend a sarcastic 12 year old too?
Atlantis would be awesome or even City of Gold stuff love these movies they can keep on making them as long as they like

I'm not a fan of these movies but they're not the worst piece of crap infesting movies right now. This doesn't bother me.

Time travel or a parallel time band (ala Dark Shadows)via a whirlpool or perhaps waterspout, may be a cool idea. A 5th film should bring it to a close though IMO,or else yr gonna have a 6th installment without Johnny Depp...guessing.

Although I'm very excited for this movie and think that it will be very good, this seems like a case of counting your chickens before they've hatched.

Wait until people have seen the film before you decide what to do next. If there is a strong negative reaction to the film, then you're screwed.

Also, I wish they would pull a Mission Impossible and have a different director for every outing of Jack Sparrow. It would be cool to see different takes on the character and world.

BUT, everything I've said is completely pointless and unnecessary if the film turns out amazing. I'm just iffy on Rob Marshall still.

ET: As DarkElfa said, Atlantis seems reasonable. Or perhaps reuse the plot of Rossio's own fantastic Road To El Dorado and have Sparrow search for a city of gold. It would be cool to see an entire city of gold in a live action film.

Duude...I'm liking that notion. Could make for some awesome storytelling...and amazing visuals.
