Director Tim Burton is also rumored to be lining up for the helmer role in the forthcoming Disney's project.
Words are Captain Jack Sparrow could be having a brother in "Pirates of the Caribbean 4". The latest report about the Walt Disney's future project from Cinema Blend has picked up the newest rumor from the fourth "Pirates" flick, suggesting that either Sacha Baron Cohen of "Borat" or Russell Brand of "Forgetting Sarah Marshall" may take on the possible role.
The speculation about the new character comes out as Will Turner and Elizabeth Swan, the lead characters played by Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley respectively, are out from "Pirates 4". Adding to the Cohen and Brand's rumor, it has also been said that Geoffrey Rush is planning to return as Captain Hector Barbossa.
About the director of the fourth movie, Cinema Blend noted that Gore Verbinski, the helmer of the hit "Pirates of the Caribbean" trilogy, is eyeing to reprise his role. However, there is new rumor coming out that "Sweeney Todd" director Tim Burton is more likely to get the part. If Burton boards the project, he will be teaming up once again with Johnny Depp, the leading man of many of his successful movies.
"Pirates of the Caribbean 4" has been said to be focusing solely on Sparrow's character. The story supposedly will follow the eccentric pirate in his quest to find the Fountain of Youth. Though he will not be accompanied by Will and Elizabeth, Sparrow will have Captain Barbossa in his team as the unlikely duo are forced to team up in order to "defeat some supernatural terror".
