Walt Disney Pictures will present the journey of Captain Jack Sparrow in "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" in a more realistic picture. The studio has just confirmed that the film will be shot in 3-D, or Disney Digital 3-D as the studio calls it.

This decision ends a long debated issue of whether to shoot the fourth "Pirates of the Caribbean" film in 3-D or to convert it into 3-D film in post production. Several films converted into 3-D after shot using non 3-D cameras included "Clash of the Titans" and upcoming "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" movies.

"Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" will see Jack Sparrow on a quest to find the Fountain of Youth. Johnny Depp will reprise his role as the eccentric pirate, while Sam Claflin has been tapped to play a new key role of Philip, a youthful missionary. Penelope Cruz and Ian McShane additionally join the cast as the female lead and the movie villain respectively.

Rob Marshall is on board to direct this upcoming film from the action adventure film franchise with the script written by Terry Rossio and Ted Elliott, while Jerry Bruckheimer will produce it. Shooting will be kicked off this summer in Hawaii for May 20, 2011 U.S. release.

This is some of the best news i've heard about yet about Pirates 4, other then the fact that Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush are indeed returning to play the characters Captain Jack Sparrow and Captain Barbossa!. I can't wait until 12 months from now when Pirates 4 finally comes to theaters!, thats going to be like a big day for me, because i'm probably like one of the biggest POTC movie fans out there!, i'm so excited about this movie, i wish it was made already, and so then that way we could see it already, but, unfortunately that isn't the case yet!=/. Also, it being in 3D means we'll be seeing it in IMAX theaters, and that adds to theater movie watching experience, and i love that, when movie are in IMAX, because of those really cool BIG screen that makes the movie look 100 time better in alot of ways!=).
