From Variety:

Disney, Depp return to 'Caribbean'

Actor also signs on for 'Ranger,' 'Wonderland'

By MARC GRASER

Johnny Depp is the main man at the Mouse House.

Depp has agreed to reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in a fourth "Pirates of the Caribbean" pic and play Tonto in a bigscreen adaptation of "The Lone Ranger," both produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. He will also star as the Mad Hatter in Tim Burton’s version of "Alice in Wonderland."

The roles come after Depp helped Disney earn a combined $2.6 billion at the box office with the three pics in the "Pirates" franchise, also produced by Bruckheimer.

Depp’s casting deals closed a full day Wednesday at the Kodak Theater, where Walt Disney Studios chairman Dick Cook touted the Mouse’s upcoming slate of pics during a showcase event for exhibitors, media and other industry insiders.

No word on other casting, but we'll keep a weather eye out.

News on the Pirates 4 front in tomorrow's Daily Variety. The Headline is "Verbinski's had enough 'Pirates.'":

It's no longer a pirate's life for Gore Verbinski.

After spending the better part of the last six years directing the "Pirates of the Caribbean" trilogy, which grossed $2.6 billion worldwide, Verbinski has informed Disney and producer Jerry Bruckheimer that he will not helm a fourth installment that's expected to set sail in 2010 with Johnny Depp back as Captain Jack Sparrow. Sequel is in development but not yet greenlit. It's unknown how Verbinski's ankling will affect the pic's schedule.<snip>

Johnny Depp has signed a multi-picture deal with Disney which includes P4, Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland and Bruckheimer's Lone Ranger. Bill Nighy has said that he'd eagerly hop back onboard but since his character was last seen falling into the vortex of the maelstrom, it would have to be one heck of a story to raise him from the dead. It's been done before (did we ever get an explanation of how Barbossa was re-animated?).

Now it's sit-and-wait time.

The story centers around Captain Jack Sparrow rising far beyond the the land of the dead, and his journey takes him to a land unknown to mankind. What awaits Captain Jack is a new beginning of hell on earth.

??? I thought that The Cross was slated for the summer, so not sure what to make of this. They seem to have quite specific information though?

Last I heard, Ted and Terri weren't involved, but it's possible I missed something (I haven't paid that much attention to this thread).

ETA: From Wordplay:

Posted by Terry on Thursday, 9 April 2009, at 8:00 p.m., in response to Status of Pirates 4 now Verbinski has jumped ship?, posted by Scott L on Wednesday, 8 April 2009, at 8:55 p.m.

Regarding Pirates 4, not much has changed. Before this article, we were in the space of not having a green light, and not having a director, not having an approved script, budget, stars, etc.

Now we're in the space of not having a green light, and not having a director, not having an approved script, budget, stars, etc.

The only thing that is being undone are people's expectations, and their misunderstandings of how the system works. Really, until there is a movie there is no movie.

Regarding the article, it's just as questionable to assume its content and conclusions are correct as it would be to assume its content and conclusions are incorrect.

Jerry Bruckheimer has been talking Pirates 4. He gave a mini-update on Pirates 4 to Comingsoon.net:

Earlier this week, there was a story from the Licensing International Expo in Las Vegas posted on Jim Hill's Blog claiming that Jerry Bruckheimer and Walt Disney Pictures had chosen a director to helm The Lone Ranger, which would star Johnny Depp as Tonto, and that the movie would push the planned Pirates of the Caribbean 4 back.

ComingSoon.net had a chance to catch up with Bruckheimer this week and ask him about the status of both projects, having been over six months since our last update. Currently, the producer is in the middle of filming The Sorcerer's Apprentice with Jon (National Treasure) Turteltaub in New York City, while Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is well into its post-production, with both movies scheduled for release in the summer of 2010.

That doesn't mean that those other projects aren't in development, but Bruckheimer told us that for Disney, the priority is most definitely "Pirates." "It's a great franchise for them and for us, too," he said. "A beloved character and Johnny's really excited about coming back to Captain Jack. He certainly is interested in Tonto, but Disney's priority is to get 'Pirates' made first. You never know what's going to happen, but they would like it."

Bruckheimer shared that the original writers, Terry Rossio and Ted Elliot, were "writing 'Pirates' as we speak," and he said it was "funny" and a "whole new way of going" although he wouldn't share more than that.

Since Gore Verbinski recently announced that he may not direct a movie based on the video game BioShock, we asked Bruckheimer if there was a chance he might return for a fourth movie. "You never know," he admitted. "He created the franchise so we'd love to have him back, but it's kind of up to him."

Here's what Jim Hill Media (aka Mr.-All-Things-Disney) had to say earlier in his blog:
<snip>

As for the eagerly anticipated sequel that was originally supposed to have been Walt Disney Pictures & Jerry Bruckheimer Films' tentpole release for the Summer of 2011 (i.e. "Pirates of the Caribbean 4"), that movie first slid to Holiday 2011 and is now tentatively slated for release in the Summer of 2012. Which -- I know -- will depress a lot of you "Pirates" fans out there. Having to wait a whole 'another year before you then get to see Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow again. So let me try & cheer you up by revealing that -- in addition to "Toy Story 3" and "Cars 2" -- Pixar Animation Studios has yet another sequel in the works. <snip>

At least P4 is "in development" and Terry and Ted are "writing". It's still on DIsney's Drawing Board! I don't know where The Dish got its infomation (they could be repeating an internet rumour) but they specifically mention Elizabeth and Will:
<snip>

Both films have Disney involved and Hollywood super producer Jerry Bruckheimer. Scheduling has caused one to take precedence over the other and it seems Pirates 4 has overshot The Lone Ranger, which seemed to be the front runner for a while.

Bruckheimer said of the next Pirates film: "Disney's priority is to get Pirates made," he said. "That's a great franchise for them and for us too. Beloved, with a great character and Johnny's really excited about coming back to Captain Jack."

Mr. Bruckheimer also revealed that he's already had a peak at some of the script for Pirates 4. It seems that Captain Jack will spearhead the next film, with Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom's characters hardly seen.

The film is set for a 2012 release.

The 3 Disney Pirates films must have undone the damage that Cutthroat Island did to the Pirate genre cbecause now Steven Spielberg is looking to do a Pirate movie, a 'real' pirate movie based on a yet-unpublished book by the late Michael Crichton. "Pirate Latitudes" was found on his hard drive and will be published posthumously on November 24th. Not based on an amusement ride (and mores the pity for that deficiency!), it is a mission and infiltration movie - break in to a well guarded place to get a treasure and face more trouble once there. If it were anyone but Spielberg producing/directing I would be yawning right about now. From Crichton's website:

The Caribbean, 1665. A remote colony of the English crown, the island of Jamaica holds out against the vast supremacy of the Spanish empire. Devoid of London's luxuries, Port Royal, its capital, is a cutthroat town of taverns, grog shops, and bawdy houses. In this steamy climate, life can end swiftly by dysentery — or dagger. But for a daring soul like Captain Edward Hunter, this wild outpost in the New World can also lead to great fortune, if he abides by the island's code. In the name of His Majesty King Charles II of England, gold in Spanish hands is gold for the taking and the law of the land rests with those ruthless enough to make it.

Word in port is that the Spanish galleon El Trinidad, fresh from New Spain, is awaiting repairs in nearby Matanceros. Heavily fortified, the impregnable Spanish harbor is guarded by the bloodthirsty Cazalla, a favorite commander of King Philip IV. With the Jamaican governor's backing, Hunter assembles a crew of ruffians to infiltrate the enemy island and commandeer the galleon and its fortune in Spanish gold. The raid is as perilous as the bloodiest tales of Matanceros legend, and Hunter will lose more than one man before he makes it onto the island's shores, where dense jungle and the firepower of Spanish infantry stand between him and the treasure.

With the help of his cunning band, Hunter hijacks El Trinidad and escapes the deadly clutches of Cazalla, leaving plenty of carnage in his wake. But the danger — and adventure — are only just beginning. . .</B>

:lol: Commandeer - that's nautical term. The race to Port Royal has started! May the Black Pearl win!

Good reason why they had Jack Sparrow's costume at D23 - this happened there today! The first bit is from Comingsoon:

<Snipped about Miley Cyrus, John Carter of Mars, blah blah blah>

Following the announcement, Johnny Depp appeared in full Jack Sparrow costume, taking the stage and announcing a Summer 2011 release date for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, the new title for the fourth installment!

Ain't It Cool News confirms this from another source:

Just saw Johnny Depp...yes, he talked Alice and is very excited about it...but the unexpected news was :

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides - Said the script looks really good and that they hope to have the old gang back together. (!?!)

As for the D23 Expo...its better than I expected. Some amazing stuff coming to their parks soon.

This artwork was at Comingsoon, plus AICN said that they received this early logo through 'official channels' (clickable):

Don't know who all they're talking about with 'the old gang'. Pintal and Ragetti, or more? :hmmm:

Casting information was posted today at hannahmontanacasting. Expected to start filming in April or May 2010, the listing only outlines headshot and resume guidelines and how to submit them. Only 'locals' will be hired in the US Virgin Islands and extras cast in LA. Director is Rob Marshall. And waaaay down at the bottom is a synopsis of POTC4. Spoilers Ahoy!

The 4th film in the series follows the exploits of Captain Jack Sparrow, who travels to the new world after the death of his puppeteer father to confront his uncle, who apparently has made off with the family inheritance. During the voyage, he gets to know a woman named Beth Hurwood and her father, an Oxford professor. Before they arrive, their ship is waylaid by pirates and with the help of the professor and his assistant, the captain is killed and Sparrow forced to join the pirate crew. There is, however, a sinister plot being concocted by the professor involving his dead wife, his living daughter and Blackbeard. Blackbeard and vodun magicians whisk everyone away to dreamlike lands where the Fountain of Youth itself awaits. Jack Sparrow must put a stop to these plans and save Beth Hurwood.

Puppeteer father?!

I'm not sure what this means but it's worth mentioning this announcement that came at the end of the workday Friday (prime time for announcements that you hope will quickly die over the weekend because all of the media pundits are off) - Dick Cook resigned from Disney this evening, effective immediately. In his 38 years at Disney, he worked his way up from operating the steam train and monorail to chairman of The Walt Disney Studios. His successor has not been named yet. I wouldn't think this change would affect POTC4 but you never know.

The latest, from MTV Movies Blog.

Johnny Depp Less Enthusiastic About Next 'Pirates Of The Caribbean' After Departure Of Disney Exec

by Christopher Campbell

A long time ago, we all dreaded Disney's decision to turn its "Pirates of the Caribbean" theme park attraction into a movie. Then Johnny Depp came aboard, and he gave us one of the most iconic film characters of the past decade. Since then, its been harder to be cynical of such adaptations.

Apparently we have Disney studio chief Dick Cook to partially thank for how great the "Pirates" franchise -- or at least the first film -- is. Now that Cook has resigned from the company (Disney denies he was fired), the series could be in jeopardy. Or, at least Depp's involvement with the films may be.

Depp has a bond with the exiting executive, claiming that it was Cook who convinced the star to sign on to the "Pirates" movies. Depp told the Los Angeles Times last week that Cook was the rare studio exec he could trust, and so he ended up agreeing to play Captain Jack Sparrow without even seeing a script.

Cook proved worthy of that trust during filming. Depp told the newspaper's Company Town blog, "when things went a little sideways on the first 'Pirates' movie and others at the studio were less than enthusiastic about my interpretation of the character, Dick was there from the first moment. He trusted me."

With Cook gone from Disney, Depp admits there's a "fissure, a crack" in his enthusiasm for the next installment of "Pirates," which we recently learned is titled "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" and is set to open in Summer 2011. Depp isn't fully signed on for the sequel, as he's waiting to approve the script. Yet there's a chance he'll now view any submitted draft unacceptable as a result of his waning interest.

Depp isn't the only one disappointed by Cook's departure from Disney. In her exclusive report of Cook's exit, Nikki Finke at Deadline Hollywood claims Steven Spielberg is also upset, because he apparently brought DreamWorks into its deal with Disney thanks to Cook, whom the filmmaker "worships."

Of course, the effect on Depp is more of a concern. Just imagine Disney trying to go forward with the series either without the star or even with a less enthusiastic performance? There's no way the studio would go back to taking issue with Jack Sparrow's body language or appearance as portrayed by Depp, but there is the possibility of other disapproving notes brought to Depp by whomever replaces Cook. With that being the case, we might want to hope Depp does walk away and the franchise does close shop.

Do you hope Johnny Depp can regain his enthusiasm for the role? Would you rather the "Pirates of the Caribbean" series call it quits?

MTV Movie Blog is stirring up the pot again. They're followign up their 'Johnny Depp is less than enthusiastic about POTC4 now that Dick Cook has resigned from DIsney' story with a yarn about a Johnny Depp-less POTC4.:

Disney Prepares To Replace Johnny Depp In 'Pirates Of The Caribbean' Franchise

Posted 4 hrs ago by Christopher Campbell in News

Following the recent departure of Disney studio chief Dick Cook, Johnny Depp admitted to being less enthusiastic about returning to the role of Captain Jack Sparrow for "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" ("Pirates" part 4, for those who lost count). And the fans in turn admitted that they'd give up on the franchise without him in it.

That apparently isn't stopping Disney though. According to a tip received by Cinema Blend, the studio is preparing to replace Depp if/when he decides to abandon ship. This may not happen with "On Stranger Tides," as Disney is likely prepared to offer him as much money as it takes to keep him aboard. The actor, who is said to be aware the last two movies "sucked," will definitely not be sticking around for the fifth and sixth installments if the tipster is to be believed.

Is this sad news for us Jack Sparrow lovers? Certainly, but I don't believe it's the end of the world for the "Pirates" franchise. Yes, Jack Sparrow -- and Depp's portrayal of him -- is terrific and hardly replaceable, but there are other wonderful actors out there who could at least steer the series on their own. And anyway, it might actually be refreshing to follow the adventures of another sort of pirate -- a character unlike (and therefore incomparable to) Sparrow.

The plot of "On Stranger Tides," which Geoffrey Rush claims may begin shooting next spring, could easily work as a changing of the guard.

It was widely believed until last week that "Tides"' story will come at least in part from Tim Powers' novel, "On Stranger Tides," which Disney owns the rights to. Powers confirmed last Monday that the fourth movie will "use elements" of the book.

Powers' novel involves a pirate's search for the Fountain of Youth. The story leaves room for a young newcomer, a character who aids the pirates in their search for the mythic location, to come aboard. While this could turn out to be Orlando Bloom's role in the next movie, it seems possible that Disney might use that character instead as a Sparrow replacement. Of course, the studio will need more than just a pretty face if they hope to rival -- and/or replace -- Depp's iconic pirate.

It's easy to be cynical and believe Disney would screw it up by casting someone like Zac Efron or Shia LaBeouf as the new lead. Just as nobody wants to see LaBeouf completely take over the "Indiana Jones" franchise -- yet -- without Harrison Ford, few of these sorts of rising stars are acceptable fill-ins for Depp.

However, I could see the following young men inventing an eccentric character worthy of captaining the series: James Franco; Ryan Gosling; Ben Whishaw; Anton Yelchin; and of course Robert Pattinson (more because of his Dali portrayal in "Little Ashes" than his "Twilight" vampire).

C'mon, MTV. Wait and See. There is 6 months between now and a supposed spring filming start. A lot can happen in that much time.

Personally, I'd rather see Zac Efron as an elf than a pirate but that's a whole 'nother thread!

Acknowledged as total rumor at this point but the Coventry Telegraph is reporting that Clive Standen has been flown to LA to talk with Jerry Bruckheimer about a role in POTC4. Clive has an advanced gold certificate in swordfighting from the British Academy of Stage and Screen Combat - and a strong jawline - so he's already got some swashbuckling cred. Fans might remember him from Robin Hood (he was Robin's brother, Archer, in the the BBC weekly version) and in 3 Dr. Who episodes (UNIT leader Private Carl Harris in Season 4).

Looks like the project is moving forward.

Rob Marshall is definitely the director for P4. At last night's DGA screening of NINE, when asked during the Q&A what his next project would be, straight from his mouth, he said it was a film he was offered and he never thought he'd do but then he thought what the heck. He has already met with Johnny Depp and they're both excited to be working together.

Hawaiian Governor Linda Lingle's office released a statement about P4 filming yesterday. It will be filmed this summer in Oahu and Kauai. This story is from the Honolulu Advertiser:

Walt Disney Pictures has decided to film "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" in Hawaii, Gov. Linda Lingle's office announced this morning.

The fourth installment in the action-adventure series will be shot on Kauai and Oahu this summer. It is scheduled for release in summer 2011.

Lingle's office said filming is expected to generate about $85 million in direct and indirect spending in the Islands and provide hundreds of jobs for residents.

"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" will once again star Johnny Depp as Capt. Jack Sparrow.

The film is being produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Rob Marshall.

"We've always sought out the most extraordinary and exotic locations for the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' films and previously shot briefly on both Maui and Molokai for 'Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End,' " Bruckheimer said. "Hawaii provides an amazing range of both land and seascapes and we're delighted to return for 'On Stranger Tides.' "

Filming this summer, release next summer. Perhaps there will be more story and less special effects so that they can stick to that quick release date. Or their F/X department has had plenty of practice and can get it done quickly.

Whatever the horizon POTC4 is bearing down on, Mackenzie Crook will not be onboard as Ragetti according to his comments to The Independent (UK):

<snip>He tells Britain's The Independent newspaper, "They haven't asked me. But actually I don't mind that at all. I'm a fan of the first one especially and I think the trilogy we've made is great. I'd almost like them to leave it there. "If people want more, then, sure, give them more if you can keep the standard. Quite possibly they do and quite possibly they can, so that's great. But my pirating days are over."
They need a casting call for a character to provide the comic relief.

From ComingSoon.net, emphasis mine:

Penelope Cruz is in negotiations to join Johnny Depp in the Rob Marshall-directed Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, reports Heat Vision.

Scheduled for a release on May 20, 2011, the fourth installment revolves around the Fountain of Youth. Depp is reprising the role of Captain Jack Sparrow and Cruz's character is expected to be "Sparrow's foil and equal in many ways."

The Jerry Bruckheimer-produced film was written by Terry Rossio and Ted Elliot. Shooting will take place in Hawaii this summer.

Cruz starred in Marshall's last film, Nine.

This should be interesting. I really like her, and depending on how it goes, I may actually be interested in seeing this now. Maybe.

Jerry Bruckheimer gave an interview to MTV. If you don't want to know, don't highlight the spoiler area.

QUOTE

We've known since February that Penélope Cruz was looking to come aboard "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides," the fourth installment of Johnny Depp's swashbuckling adventure stories. Yet until now, her exact role has remained unclear. MTV News has exclusively learned exactly how Cruz fits into the story:

She's the daughter of Depp's nemesis.

"She plays the daughter of Blackbeard," executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer told MTV News at ShoWest in Las Vegas. "She's the daughter of the bad guy.

"She brings a lot of humor to it. And the fact that she's so feisty," he continued, adding that there will be "a little romance between [Depp's] Captain Jack and the character that Penelope plays."

Ian McShane is to set to play Blackbeard, the main adversary to Captain Jack Sparrow. As Bruckheimer put it, Blackbeard is "the nastiest pirate ever."

Geoffrey Rush, who has played Barbossa in the three previous "Pirates" films, told MTV News in September that he expected to reprise his role in "On Stranger Tides," and Bruckheimer confirmed that will indeed be the case.

Filming is slated to begin in June. New actors are in the process of being cast for certain roles, with testing currently in the works. As for the plot, we know the story will pick up where it ended in 2007's "At World's End": with Sparrow's search for the Fountain of Youth. Yet Bruckheimer promised a fresh approach to this familiar material.

"We're going to take a whole new direction," he said.

The tv show, Access Hollywood, just had a very short story about casting for POTC4. They're looking for women between 18-25, 5'7"-5'8",size 4-6 only and with real breasts. Implants need not apply. Applicants may be subjected to a 'jiggle test.' Can you imagine?! That sounds like a lame excuse for some perverted producer to get a cheap thrill.

Several online sources are quoting the same eonline article that claims

<snip>I hear two newcomers are at the top of the list to be Pirates' new young leading heartthrob.

A very well-placed source tells me that Max Irons and Sam Claflin are both in the running to grab Bloom's big sword and fill his swashbuckler shoes.<snip>

I'm fairly certain that the 'replacing Orlando Bloom' headlines are supposed to be attention-grabbing rather than factual. Will Turner is busy ferrying the dead (although I'm keeping my fingers crossed for an unannounced cameo). Do they really need to write in a young studly character to be Jack Sparrow's straight man? Don't they have enough main characters already?

In other casting news, Stephen Graham (Baby Face Nelson in Public Enemies) is in talks to play a character named Scram. Sounds like a right pirate-y name, sez I. With a moniker like that, Scram could be the comic relief, replacing Mckenzie Crook, who has stated that he won't be back for POTC4.

And no giggling over the 'grab Bloom's big sword' comment!! The Gutter is thataway. :whistle:

Jerry Bruckheimer talks "P4", complete with a video of The Black Pearl arriving in Oahu. He re-iterates that Will and Elizabeth will not appear (and I'm still hopin' for a brief cameo for continuity):

QUOTE

<snip>When Earths Mightiest recently caught up with him for an exclusive interview, he also had Captain Jack Sparrow on his mind and the fourth entry in the Pirates of the Caribbean film series, On Stranger Tides, which he feels will differ from its predecessors.

"For this one, we're going to be in the jungle, so we're going to use Hawaii," he explains. "We're going to be in London on stages, but not a lot. The story takes off where we left Captain Jack in the last one: He's got

the map to the Fountain of Youth

and that's how our story begins." <snip>
