I’ve been literally panting with anticipation for details of Johnny Depp‘s fourth journey as Jack Sparrow (okay, not really) and today we finally have some! Thanks to Comic-Con and Blastr, the details of the plot for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides have appeared online for us to judge and evaluate to our hearts content.
It’s been three years since the last Pirates movie, and in that time Jack has apparently found a (sexy) woman:
When Jack crosses paths with a woman from his past (Penelope Cruz), he’s not sure if it’s love—or if she’s a ruthless con artist who’s using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. When she forces him aboard the Queen Anne’s Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn’t know who to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past.
Also, during a panel at Comic-Con, Depp appeared via 3D video message and mentioned juicy things like zombies and mermaids in the upcoming film.
So…to recap: we have Captain Jack Sparrow + Penelope Cruz + zombies + mermaids for Pirates 4. I was a little skeptical about the fourth movie since it’s without Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley, but Cruz makes a pretty decent eye-candy replacement and zombies will always make any movie better.
The movie is currently filming and isn’t slated to hit theaters until May 20, 2011 – but at least now we have something to chew on while we wait!
