While this news isn’t as painfully obvious as a horror remake director signing on to adapt an ‘acclaimed’ graphic novel as his second project, it wasn’t terribly hard to see coming. Those of you salivating for a glimpse of Captain Jack’s return won’t be waiting much longer.
Coming Soon tells us that the teaser for the fourth film in the Pirates franchise, On Stranger Tides, will see its big screen bow before Disney’s Tron Legacy on December 17th.
Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Rob Marshall, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” captures the fun, adventure and humor that ignited the hit franchise—this time in Disney Digital 3D™. Johnny Depp returns to his iconic role of Captain Jack Sparrow in an action-packed tale of truth, betrayal, youth and demise. When Jack crosses paths with a woman from his past (Penelope Cruz), 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.
And for those of you wondering, word is Jack will be battling zombies this time out, which makes it pretty damn difficult to resist.
