Anyone hear recently that Johnny Depp was going to be paid a heck of a lot for Pirates of the Caribbean 4? There were also some rumours floating around that Sasha Baron Cohen would have a part, as would Russell Brand. Apparently Tim Burton was also being considered to direct. Well if all those didn’t ring your bullshit alarm then your bullshit alarm needs new batteries.
Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy writer Terry Rossio recently posted a message on a forum confirming that all these rumours were indeed, bullshit.
For the record, none of the recent Pirates 4 rumors have any truth, including the so-called record 50 million dollar payday for Depp.
Some pretty funny stuff, though. Sacha Cohen? Tim Burton? Studios are way too protective of their franchises for that sort of thing.
Don’t you just hate tabloid talk?
