'National Treasure 3' and 'Pirates of the Caribbean 4' Being Written


'National Treasure 3' and 'Pirates of the Caribbean 4' Being Written


Producer Jerry Bruckheimer sits down to discuss about the future plans for the third 'National Treasure' series and the fourth 'Pirates of the Caribbean' franchise.

With all the speculations circulating around the next installment of "National Treasure" and "Pirates of the Caribbean", producer Jerry Bruckheimer has come out to set things straight on the development of "National Treasure 3" and "Pirates of the Caribbean 4". On Tuesday, November 4, the filmmaker sat down with ComingSoon and a group of journalists to confirm that both of the proposed projects are currently being written.

Speaking on the London set of "Prince of Persia: Sands of Time", Bruckheimer explained, "We've sat with the writers and we're working up the story and plotlines right now. They're in the process of finishing 'The Lone Ranger' so they're working on both of those simultaneously, same set of writers, Elliot and Rossio, who did all three 'Pirates' and worked on 'National Treasure (2)'."

When asked further whether the new "Pirates" movie might get an IMAX treatment like "The Dark Knight", the 63-year-old responded quickly, "Absolutely. I'd love to do it, so let's just see if we can work it through the production schedule with everything else." Other than that, he revealed that the studio are leaning toward a 2012 release for the possible release date of the fourth "Pirates".

Though detailed information about "Pirates 4" has remained tightly under wraps, the new project reportedly focuses solely on Johnny Depp's Jack Sparrow as it follows the eccentric pirate in his quest to find the Fountain of Youth. In the new adventure, he is forced to team up with Captain Barbossa in order to "defeat some supernatural terror" and leaves out Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann.

Meanwhile, "National Treasure 3" was previously reported to be eyeing for 2010 holiday season release. Having its star Nicolas Cage attached to come back for this third installment, the action adventure film is said to be set in the South with New Orleans as one of the possible locations. Still, the location's rumor for this installment is yet to be verified or denied.

    This is brilliant news, but if it's coming out in 2010, shouldn' we know where they're filming by now? All these rumors are driving me insane. If they dont film it here (New Orleans) I'd have had so much false hope. xD I wanted to be an extra.
