Pirates 4 Gets Plot?
And here we are once more with a Pirates Of The Caribbean 4 update for you.
It was announced recently at D23, a Disney convention, that the fourth installment of the Pirates series would be called ‘Pirates of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides‘.
This also happens to be the title of a pirate novel written in 1988 by Tim Powers. Fans seem to think that it’s a little more than a titular coincidence and that the next film will be based on the book.
The novel tells the story of Jack Shandy who travels the world to confront his inheritance stealing uncle. Along the way he meets an Oxford Professor and his daughter, the Fountain of Youth and the infamous pirate, Blackbeard.
If this turns out to actually be the plot of the movie, it’s shaping up to be a mash-up of Cutthroat Island, 20, 000 Leagues Under The Sea and the first Pirates movie.
Speculation about the plot, based on the subtitle, debunks earlier rumours about a steampunk styled film with Captain Nemo as the bad guy.
