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

Freak of Nature3787d ago

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 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...

CRAIG6673787d ago

Saw and scream should never have got past the script stage nevermind the trilogy stage,2 of the worst franchises EVER!

gaffyh3787d ago

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.

LarVanian3787d ago (Edited 3787d ago )

If Tim Burton was directing maybe.

ShabzS3787d ago (Edited 3787d ago )

yeah if tim burton was directing add in helena bonham carter too as tenenbaum

theEnemy3787d ago

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.


Freak of Nature3787d ago

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.
