Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides as we already know is slated for release next summer and filming starts this June.  However, producer Jerry Bruckheimer sat down with MTV and gave us a few updates on the film.  Here is what we now know for sure now:

– Ian McShane (Deadwood) has been confirmed to be playing the villain, Blackbeard “the nastiest pirate ever”

– Geoffrey Rush (Munich) will be reprising his role as Captain Hector Barbossa

– Penelope Cruz (Vicky Cristina Barcelona) has joined the cast as well as Blackbeard’s daughter. Bruckheimer hinted at a possible romantic arc in the story between her and Captain Jack Sparrow.

Hit the jump to see the interview with Jerry Bruckheimer and read the info recap on the project.


Rob Marshall (Chicago) may be directing the film after his sophomore failure, Nine.  Most news articles seem to be reporting Rob Marshall as the director, however, I can’t seem to find an article that gives confirmation on his being hired for the job.  Regardless, I hope he lands the job as he should be able to bring a new vision to the project.

As per the plot of the film, those details are also very sketchy with many sources talking about them continuing where the last film ended with Barbossa and Sparrow racing for the Fountain of Youth.

Personally I think this news is great.  As much as I admit that the third film is the weakest of the trilogy and has a good amount of low points and questionable moments, I still love it.  I can’t wait to see Geoffrey Rush and Johnny Depp go sailing in the high seas again.  I also can’t wait to see one of my favourite actors to join the cast, Ian McShane, and do his work as Blackbeard.  Ian McShane might just be the best thing to happen to the franchise since Bill Nighy (The Boat that Rocked) joined it in the second film as Davey Jones.  More as we get it.

    I hate when people correct really pointless errors, but i'm gonna do it anyways, marshall directed memoirs of a geisha after chicago, so nine isnt his “sophmore” effort. that being said the fact he directed both those terrible movies in a row is more reason for him not to make this.

    Ian McShane is incredible, but the third one was a terrible film. I saw it opening weekend (on my birthday), and I actually fell asleep in the theater. It was the one and only time I'd fallen asleep during a movie in my life (at all, period); and it was mid-day and I wasn't even tired.

    The third one was lame, but with Orlando and that other girl out of the picture I can see this one making a comeback.

    I only saw it once, but I loved the way-out-there moments of the third one. I liked seeing that wacky stuff in a blockbuster. The big problem was the finale. Did anyone really expect us to be happy about the big mystery character just sort of growing large and making a whirlpool only to disappear with no other effect on the story?

    Ian McShane as Blackbeard has me in the seats already.

    Not wild about Rob Marshall matching up with this material. Note to the editor/writer: Was Memoirs of a Geisha so mediocre that the it was simply disregarded as his Sophomore effort? Or is “sophomore failure” supposed to mean second failure? A bit confusing. Maybe it's just me.

    Rob Marshall sucks hard. I don't see how him directing the movie could be seen as 'great news'. By anybody. Say what you will, but Gore Verbinski pulled off the impossible. He gave us a pretty thrilling, and unique, trilogy- based on a Disney theme park ride! How many directors have tried to adapt the rich world, in comparison to a theme park ride, of video games and failed miserably? Lots. My money says, if Marshall DOES get this job (and, after the tremendous failure of Nine, that may be in doubt), you can add his names to the adaptations fail list (Wait. It's probably already there for Nine and Memoirs. My bad.)…

    Sorry to readers… completely forgot that Rob Marshall directed Memoirs of a Geisha… so yes Nine isn't his sophomore film… I'm stupid, I move on.

    Also, I wont argue anyone who says they didn't dig the third Pirates film, but I did. It was wacky at points but overall remains a pretty enjoyable blockbuster.
