Good news coming from Walt Disney. According to Cinematical, the mouse house have been planning to release the fourth installment of its most successful "Pirates of the Caribbean" trilogy, "Pirates of the Caribbean 4" sometime in 2011.

Though many reports are conflicting on how the studio get on the fourth film, many favor that the fourth film will focus solely on the renowned Captain Jack Sparrow. Further, it was said that as the studio is trying to downsize the film's budget, the fourth installment would probably have a lighter take on the special effects.

Aside from planning to release "Pirates 4", Disney is reportedly going to make the follow-up of "National Treasure: Book of Secrets" and the sequel to one of the studio's successful animations "Cars".

The first three "Pirates" films which features Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley have been extremely successful as it gained millions of dollars each. The first film "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl" has grossed $305.4 million domestically and $654.3 million worldwide. Further, "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" got better reception by earning $423.3 in North America only and over one billion dollars around the world, while the third "Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End" reached $961 million in its worldwide sales.

i think it should mostly be about jack and Barbosa, and not a romantic movie with will and elizabeth

Will and Elizabeth have to be in POTC 4. Didn't you notice that in the last scene Elizabeth didn't age.Neither did Will. Why is that?perhaps something to do with the fountain of youth?Maybe they won't be major characters but their story is definatly not over!so excited to see what disney comes up with for the next few films...trilogy my butt...make them like chronicles!Pirate fans want more!!!!

I'm absolutely ecstatic that POTC is returning.but I really do belive that jack needs a special someone. To tie it into the previous films how about the semi goddes offspring of calypso and Davy jones? Maybe even put the fountain of youth on Atlantis? Which our half goddess would be a queen of?

MAKE A FOURTH WITH WILL N KEIRA! Have Jack meet up with his family (Like that one guy in the third when jack asks hows mum?) When Will and elizabeth have a child keira should give jack the child to raise as a man. Then have Barbossa kill will rite before will drinks from the fountain of youth then he will live for all eternity and all other cast member will somehow find their way to the fountain. Jack will ride off to sea with the pearl and Barbossa in the dutchmen. Elizabeth and will raise their son in a harbor just like the first movie began. the child will grow up to be just like granpa bootstrap and jack n Barbossa will sail the seven seas for all eternity becoming living legends doing what they have strived for their whole lives.

I love Pirates of the Caribbean. The movie won't be the same if everyone doesn't come back. Why wouldn't they, these movies have made them so much money. And they are going to quit now? I don't think so. I think they should focus on will and elizabeths son in the movies. Maybe him getting into it trying to be like his dad and being with him since he only gets to see him once every ten years. then he gets caught up with jack and barbosa, and I don't know. I just want another movie. I love it.

I think that Will and Elizabeth should be in the 4th movie. Jack is my favorite captain, and he's been playing a way-beyond-awsome role in all 3 movies, and am positive he's going to be even better in the next movie, but only having jack and barbossa just won't make the movie that much fun. The fountain should be used to do something about will and bring him and elizabeth together again. All three movies have been based on the same characters; you can't just remove every one and only have jack and barbossa in the movie. At least include Elizabeth in the 4th movie, and have Jack, Barbossa, and Elizabeth fight for the Fountain of youth, because each wants to use it to get what they want the most. Everyone should get what they want in the end; that's in the very last movie. Who knows how many more of the POTC series they are going to come up with until they get to the very last one, and that's deffinately the movie where everyone does get what they want the most. The more series, the better :) !!!

Elizabeth and Will should play some part...I think the story direction as indicated by the ending of 3 is that in Jack's guilt and empathy of Wills new post and how it effects Will and Elizabeth's relationship...With Will being eternally responsible for the Dutchman and its duties that his trek for the fountain of youth would be a way to allow Will and Elizabeth to enjoy each other for eternity, as well as benefitting Jack as well.

i think that they have to keep will and elizabeth in otherwise it wouldnt be the same and the hole story would be lost!!!!
posted by LindseyBFMVfan on Oct 09, 2008
Will and Elizabeth couldn't really be in it anyway... at the end of the 3rd film they were supposed to be ten years older but looked exactly the same it would be stupid. I think that doing a film with jack and barbossa is a good idea however it will not be loved as much as the other 3. They should take on a different name aswell, rather than potc4 because its not the whole cast. Just some thoughts
posted by James on Oct 05, 2008
Ok here's the real deal let Capt. Jack get his pearl back. Turn Barbossa into skelton like figure so he can be the enemy and let will and elizabeth have there romance. Definitly end it with Jack Sparrow sailing off to seven seas.

Pirates 4 does not need enymore love scenes from the Turners,I've seen all I need to see with them it's time to move on without the kissing cry babies!!!

I dont know if Barbossa should die. He is kind of a good guy. If he does die, then it should be right at the end, after he has a big fight with jack. And what happened to Norrington? please reply

I wonder if Tia Dalma/Calypso will have a part.
posted by .................... on Sep 24, 2008
Making a new movie would be cool, But if they do, they have to include Will and Elizabeth or the movie would not be good. Elizabeth is The King of The Brethren Court of Pirates so she must some part. Right?
posted by sean on Sep 21, 2008
Johnny depp and geoffrey rush are actually the only ones returning to their original roles in pirates of the caribbean 4 which is coming to theaters on either may 20th, 2011 friday or may 27th, 2011 friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!=). And that is no lie what so ever!, i sware it's not and would never lie on this movie webite which is "by the way" a website that's even on my internet favorites!!!!!!!!!!=).......

A good story line would be for Will and Elizabeth to have a son, which is then kidnapped by someone from the past and held for ransom. With no one to else to turn to, she seeks out Jack Sparrow to help her. He is reluctant, yet, he stil holds the memory of the kiss he and Elizabeth shared, and feels loyalty to his friend Will as well. It is the struggle within him that fuels the plot. In Elizabeths' eyes, he is again the hero, and he bonds with the child, despite his aloof demeanor. Perhaps there is a lost love in Jacks' past, too. He lets his pirate guard down and opens his heart to Elizabeth on a moonlit night, but then the next morning, she discovers he left her side only to go to this womans' bed. He reminds her he is a pirate, first and formost, denying he has any affections once more. The mystery woman and Elizabeth become friends, but at first, there is jealousy between them over Jack. The woman wants a love like Elizabeth and Will shared with Capt. Sparrow and asks Elizabeth how to make it work. Jack teaches the child in the ways of being a pirate, against Elizabeths' wishes. Will fights for a way to get back to his family, but a fortune teller warns him bad forces are at work, trying to steal his family away from him, someone he trusted with his own life. He doesnt want to think it is Jack doing these things, but his dreams tell him different. The story goes on..headed for an explosive conclusion....

i feel that alot of people would not go out to see the movie with just sparrow in it...don't get me wrong..depp played a beautifully awesome job just as he does will all of his other diferrent characters...but with the entire cast together... the movie is sooo much more...even if they open up the story where it is almost ten yrs later and there is something that can be done for will
posted by prisvaz on Sep 14, 2008
i believe that there should be away that will should be back on land with kiera jack should stay with his what he has always wanted...and barbossa can have eternity and rule the seas as he wanted on board the dutchman...there should seriously be some sort of story like this...w/o the "turners" together in the story there really isn't much of a franchise to go about...
posted by prisvaz19 on Sep 14, 2008 all honesty...all of the characters should return..all three movies were based between a love story and some kind of quest...the chemistry between all of the characters is what made the movie what it is today..enjoyable...and leaving the fans craving for more with all the characters..

2011 I have heard is the year for Disney and talks of POTC 4 are for real. More and more rumours are surfacing in the film world, not just fans guessing :) I really hope they do, the films are sooo morish and Johnny Depp is a credit to Jerry Bruckheimer :D I've also heard there will be more than one story though, one involving the fountain of youth, but I've also heard about the lost city of Atlantis ;)

at one point Keira said she wanted to do other things and wouldn't return for POTC 4

if nothings been announced for the fourth film then who says keira and orlando wont be in it. i do hope there is a 4th one though... with all the cast.

POTC 4 is coming
posted by sage on Aug 25, 2008
keep the same cast, and if this is going to be the last film in the series fuck the budget. Fill the film with special effects and make it an awesome movie with a happy ending that audiences won't forget.
posted by weee on Aug 21, 2008
honestly there should be some way to use the fountain of youth as a way to get Will's only appropriate to the story line....the only thing that may beoffsetting though is the fact that it will have to be ten years there has to be a story for the meantime
posted by weee on Aug 21, 2008
and honestly...even though i think that geoffry rush is brilliant...barbosa has to be killed off for good

All you Orlando and keira fans do not fret! It is confirmed that they are making a fourth movie, and Orlando Bloom will be in it, as well as Keira Knightley will be aside Johnny Depp, seeing as Keira is the Pirate "King"

They should make one definetly, I didn't like third movie, but now that they have ended that storyline it should be ok.

I would like to see a 4th as well. BUT The story line that P3 ended on with Liz and child waiting for Will MUST BE rapped up. It would be stupid to end it any other way. Have the Jack/Barbossa thing, yes. Add some Sci-Fi getting to the fountain of youth yes, BUT end it with Will and Liz reuniting, Jack getting back the Pearl OR becoming Capt. of the Flying Dutchman OR even Barbossa becoming Capt. of Dutchman. But DO NOT end it on some sci-fi note moving in an opposite direction!
posted by Debexec on Jul 17, 2008
I love all of the characters. But let us not forget Barbosa, he lends a nice touch of uncertainty. Besides, he is still concerned about returning to the creature he was in the first Pirates.

I really hope they have a fourth I am completely obsessed and have an adiction that I want more. They can't end it with Jack not havin the Pearl!!

i really hope keira and orlando are in the 4th.. you can't have a pirates without the love story between the two off-setting all of the violent fight scenes and the special effects. there has to be that realistic story line. i love johnny, dont get me wrong, but there has to be a certain amount of focus on them... some how orlando gets out of being davy jones and is with keira??
