With the madness of Comic-Con in full swing, and our crew lost out there somewhere in the desert, we’re covering the rest of the desperately tangled mess from around the web. While stumbling around the tubes, we found a cool little story from ComingSoon regarding the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean 4.
They were lucky enough to talk to producer Oren Aviv who mentioned that they’d be filming in April and May of 2010, aiming for a 2011 release date. He also mentioned that the movie would be the first of another possible trilogy. Or, of course, just the fourth installment in what they are attempting to make at least a sextilogy.
Luckily, it seems like they are learning a bit from the mistakes of the last one:
It’s important to get the story right, and it’s important to me to scale it down, because we can’t get bigger. The movies have subsequently gotten bigger and bigger and very complicated, and they were satisfying on so many levels obviously, but I want to kind of reboot the whole thing and bring it down to its core, its essence, just characters.”
Wow. There’s that word ‘reboot’ again. Definitely used in a different context than we’re used to, but it’s always nice to see Hollywood is keeping their memes going.
It sounds pretty cool, and would certainly be fantastic as a small film than the last. It also seems like a long way off – filming in a year and releasing in two, so we’ve got plenty more time to get lost at sea with this one.
What do you think?
