Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides co-writer Terry Rossio took to his message board for screenwriters [via ThePlaylist] yesterday to debunk Monday’s story about Disney cutting the budget on the franchise’s fourth installment. On the message board (which he shares with writing partner Ted Elliott), Rossio (who, with Elliott, wrote all of the Pirates films) denounced the piece as a hit job that took normal production considerations and spun them into a story about budget troubles.
Rossio explains that he suspects the budget to come in around the realm of Dead Man’s Chest ($225 million), which is less than At World’s End ($300 million), but much more than Curse of the Black Pearl ($140 million). He also explains that the filmmakers are still determining whether or not to shoot in 3D. But, I’ll agree with what Jerry Bruckheimer said in the LA Times article: “the audience will never miss it.”
