Does it really surprise to anyone that Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is going to be filmed in 3D? No. Of course not! Soon every big budget motion picture will be in 3D. Walt Disney Pictures made it official recently.
Pirates of the Caribbean 4 will be directed by Rob Marshall, and is being produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. Pirates 4 will actually be Bruckheimer's first 3D film since G-Force.
So far the film stars Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz, Ian McShane, Geoffrey Rush, and Sam Clafin. The movie will be based on the book On Stranger Tides, by author Tim Powers, and here is the description.
Puppeteer John Chandagnac, bound for Jamaica to recover stolen money from his uncle, becomes Jack Shandy after pirates attack his ship and force him to join their crew. Shandy’s struggle to accept his new life grounds the story for readers, even as Blackbeard and vodun magicians whisk everyone away to dreamlike lands where the Fountain of Youth itself awaits. The chaotic sea battles sing, though at times key events happen so quickly that they get lost in the shuffle as Jack tries to comprehend where he’s going and what’s at stake. This dark fantasy tale will appeal not just to pirate fans but also to anyone who appreciates Powers’s talent for blending the most unlikely elements into a brilliantly cohesive whole.
The movie is set to come out on May 20, 2011.
