Will there be any stars in Pirates of the Caribbean 4??

by Nathan Taylor

Keira Knightly has said NO! Orlando Bloom has said NO! Geoffrey Rush hasn't put pen to paper yet and today there were whispers that Johnny Depp's role of Captain Jack Sparrow would be recast.

Fortunately, Disney have put those rumours to bed and Depp will be in the new film entitled Pirates of the Caribbean : On Stranger Tides.

The proposed storyline for the movie was for Sparrow (Depp) and Barbossa (Rush) to meet up in the newly founded New Orleans, before they sail to find the Fountain of Youth together.
Writers have begun writing the fourth installment under the guidance of Producer Jerry Bruckheimer so we'll have to see what actually transpires.

The film is set for release in May 2011.

There's no doubt this film will be a box office smash (the first three made $2.7 billion) but it may lack something with most of the big name cast not wanting to return.

It's all still hard to believe that Pirates' being amongst the biggest movie franchise's in history was based on a Disneyland ride.

Only weeks ago the announcement was made by Captain Jack himself at the Disney D23 Expo at Walt Disney Studios. View the footage below:
