Gore Verbinski has informed Disney that he will not be directing the fourth installment of the 'Pirates of the Carribbean' series, turning down the billion dollar franchise to instead focus in on his direction of the movie adaptation of BioShock.
Well if this is true then I think we are going to see a good game adaptation to the big screen.
Now pirates 4 will be screwed. Not like I knew there was a Pirates 4 to begin with, what the hell will it be about now? If it's not the same cast it'll probably be garbage.
who's gonna take over pirates... oh come on ... bioshock is good but pirates??? damn
Pirates 4 will be in part about the "Search for the fountain of youth"...Ponch De Leon ....The movie will be part of a new trilogy.at least thats the word we got...However take this with a grain of salt,as more than half the design/concepts we do never make it into the features.... My CG Art studio has done pre viz work for the next picture.It involves some Jules Verne type of scenarios involving large flying contraptions, a man who wants to rule more than just the ocean, an encounter with the most famous and dangerous pirate of all, a race to get to a lost world....Atlantis perhaps?
Some movies should stay trilogies.... i.e. Saw, Scream...
Saw and scream should never have got past the script stage nevermind the trilogy stage,2 of the worst franchises EVER!
Saw 1 was awesome and Saw 4 was pretty good, the rest kinda sucked. Scream 1 was good, but then it went down hill.
I'm betting Johnny Depp will be playing Andrew Ryan.
If Tim Burton was directing maybe.
yeah if tim burton was directing add in helena bonham carter too as tenenbaum
but I think he'll be Jack once again. No idea who's perfect for the role of Andrew Ryan/Frank Fontaine though. As for Bridgette Tenenbaum, Bridgette Tenenbaum(Depp's partner in Sweeney Todd) is perfect for the role IMO. :)
Depp is working with TIM Burton on Alice in Wonderland,Depp will be the Mad Hatter....Depp will also be doing voice work for Burtons "Frankenweinie" flick... Pirates with Depp and Burton sure would be interesting and fun...Stylish and unique too I bet...
Off the top of my head the only actor I can see as Andrew Ryan is Hugo Weaving. I'm sure there is a better choice but I think Weaving could pull it off.
Great news, I really cannot wait for the movie adaption. Loved this game so much.
this makes me extremely happy to know this. gonna/hopes/better be a great switch over
CHRISTOPHER WALKEN 4 Andrew Ryan/Frank Fontaine !!!!!!!!!!!
dang,confused... means bioshock will be AWESOME but pirates 4 will suck ass.. damnit! im a gore verbinski fan n all but this was a great and confident sacrifice he made .. imo a HUGE one considering the fame and HUGE success of the Pirates franchise. it could be a good thing though as he may want not only to start soething fresh and challenging but to not overkill his reputation as a great director.
i'd be more worried about pirates if Johnny Depp wasn't in it. He made the films what they are. I also like alot of the other cast. But the director, na. A new director will take the films into a slighty different look, but sometimes it's a good thing.
The last Pirates film was so weak I nearly walked out. I don't know why I bothered seeing it considering the 2nd one sucked too.
the last two pirates were not all that wonderful to me but the first one was a masterpiece. There were too many little cheesy nuances in the second two films. I remember thinking "okay how in the heck did Elizabeth go from being a pretty little governor's daughter to a dual-wielding scimitar chick with a rugged bad girl kind of persona and mad fighting skills?" Just too many things like that in the last two films that kind of ruined them for me. Maybe Pirates 4 will get back to what made the first one so great.
