Pirates of the Carribbean Four – Latest News

Captain Hector Barbossa
Variety confirmed yesterday that Geoffrey Rush would be reprising his role as Captain Hector Barbossa for the fourth installment of the Pirates of the Carribbean franchise.

The fourth movie is to be based on the Tim Powers novel On Stranger Tides (1988). The irony being that I always felt the first movie ripped off Powers’ book quite substantially. Rush will be joining Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz and Ian McShane (as Blackbeard)

The franchise has been such an exercise in the law of diminishing returns that I can’t help but think that despite wonderful source material PoTC4 will be woeful. The film will be directed by Rob Marshall and is due to be out in 2011.
