I can remember reading something similar to this before, but I will talk about it anyway as it has come from the Disney know it all, Jim Hill
Now given that Bruckheimer & Disney do eventually hope to put a “Pirates 4” into production (A film that — I hear — would toss the Elizabeth & Will characters over the side in favor of doing a bawdy buddy picture which would star Jack Sparrow & Barbossa. Where both captains of the Black Pearl would initially be competing for the exact same prize. But eventually all the double crossing would have to stop as these two rivals were then forced to join forces in order to defeat some supernatural terror)
This seems the logical way to go as Keira Knightly has said she was done with the pirate world, Orlando Bloom seems to have taken a break from big budget movies by doing some stage work and a few people complained about the love story in the third film. So maybe a film filled with fun pirate action will be a breathe of fresh, or should I say sea, air.
While watching At Worlds End I grew to like Barbossa more and more. I hadn’t seen Geoffrey Rush in anything before the first Pirate movie, so I didn’t see him as an actor, I saw him as Barbossa. He was great in the role and to see him on screen again would be treat. Johnny Depp performs as always and is the natural entertainer, putting a possible fourth movie in the ‘eagerly awaiting’ category. Of course practically nothing is official or confirmed as of yet, only ideas being thrown around. The end of the last movie saw Jack Sparrow on the search for the Fountain Of Youth, which could be a rather cool storyline. However, apparently the third National Treasure movie may focus on the same topic, which is rather weird. Although the writers of Book Of Secrets just happen to have written the Pirates trilogy, so we can conclude that Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio have a fetish for fountains.
What are your thoughts on a possibly fourth outing?
