Belay all that talk about how Walt Disney Pictures & Jerry Bruckheimer Productions are allegedly getting ready to start shooting "Pirates 4."
Why For? Well, though a website which calls itself Disney Casting posted a piece yesterday claiming that preliminary casting had already begun on this highly anticipated sequel, an unnamed source at the Studio was quick to dispute this claim. Pointing out the obvious errors that can be found in this bogus "Pirates 4" casting notice.
"They say that we're looking to begin production by the late summer / early fall of this year. Which is wrong. Shooting isn't officially supposed to get underway ‘til 2010. They've also got Gore Verbinski listed as this film's director. Which - given that Gore officially announced to the trades last week that he'd be taking a pass on ‘Pirates 4' - is just sloppy. Sorry to dash anyone's hopes here. But this is clearly a hoax."
So you can forget about heading out to your local multiplex during the Summer of 2010 and then catching Captain Jack Sparrow as he journeys " … to a land unknown to mankind" and discovers " … a new beginning of hell on earth." That's honestly not the real storyline for "Pirates 4."
"And what is the real storyline?," you ask. Sorry. But if I told you that, the folks at Disney Studios would absolutely kill me. And you know what they say ...
"Dead men tell no tales …"
