Rush talks Pirates

09.24.2009

So Johnny Depp might not be super pumped to put on his eye shadow for the fourth time in PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES due to Disney chief Dick Cook's departure, but one actor from the previous films is pumped for another go-round.

That would be Geoffrey "Captain Barbossa" Rush who recently sat down with MTV to discuss what he knew of the new project.

"They're waiting for the screenplay writers to put together something that's beyond the trilogy, take it off into a new direction so that it's fresh and hopefully really interesting for an audience, that they're not going to just sausage-machine out something else, which wouldn't be so good."

Rush has been told to keep his schedule open for potential filming in the spring, so we may be seeing STRANGER TIDES sooner than we thought. I’m sure Depp will end up staying aboard, as the film is surely sunk without him, but we’re all going to be looking at just how phoned-in his performance is going to be. Although to be fair, even Depp half-assing it blows most other actors out of the water.

I’m done complaining about this franchise. You want to spend another $250 million on a sequel we didn’t ask for? Knock yourself out, I’ll give it two hours. Just don’t complain when you don’t set the world on fire with ticket sales and Jack Sparrow Halloween costumes this time. You’ve missed the pirate fad YOU started by about four years now.

I'm actually pretty excited for another Pirates movie. The action scenes in the last one were kick ass.

I love Rush

but please God no Brand in this movie. I can only apologise for exporting him from here to you guys in the States. Feel free to treat him the same way as you did when us Brits tried to impose ourselves on you previously!

Depp doesn't exactly need this but if Disney wants it to float they sure do need him. I expect a truckload of money will be unloading at Depp's front door any day now.

From everyone I've talked to, it seems there's two large groups (hated the 3rd one, thought it was an OK ending to the trilogy) and one small group (loved the 3rd one, wants mroe ASAP).

This movie is gonna be successful, but not in the way they're thinking. It lost a lot of people with it's half assed 2nd/3rd confusing/pointless storyline.

At the VMAs, Russell Brand proved to me that he was the most obnoxious person in human existence.

Obnoxious is watching the VMAs and actually having an opinion about it in some fashion.

Glad to see Rush is excited about coming back. I'm sort of hoping Brand isn't in this. I'll be there either way. Just please no Bloom.
