Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is being shot in Hawaii at the moment but Disney bosses are already sending feelers for a quick double sequel, aka Pirates 5 and 6 back to back next year, reports Hitflix.com
According to the report, there is no doubt that Johnny Depp will be reapprising the role of Captain Sparrow in the sequels. Other cast and crew members have also been asked to prepare for comebacks.
Rob Marshall,the director of the present Pirates 4 will be most likely retained. He replaced Gore Verbinski. It seems the bosses at Disney are happy with his work on the present sequel.
The most difficult part would be to get the actors to give a large chunk of dates to film two movies back to back. Johnny Depp is already committed to do “The Lone Ranger and “The Dark Shadows”.
Johnny Depp and Captain Sparrow are inseparable in people’s mind, he has almost written the definition of Captain Sparrrow. Neither him nor the Disney bosses will be willing to let go of the role. This despite the fact that the Disney executives initially thought his portrayal of Captain Sparrow bordered on gay.
The Pirates of the Caribbean;On stranger Tides will be released in May 2011. The Hitflix report is quite optimistic that the Studio will be able to pull off the next two movies back to back in Hawaii as the climate is suitable.
