Subtitle for Pirates of the Caribbean 4 Revealed


For months now there has been talk of the 4th Pirates film to revolve around Captain Jack Sparrow in search of the Fountain of Youth. But the rumors were neither squashed nor confirmed. Recently at the D23 Disney Fan Expo, the banner above was unveiled which had the official subtitle for the film – On Stanger Tides as well as a confirmed general release period of summer 2011.

People did some digging and Cinematical found a book with the exact same name and is about pirates and the Fountain of Youth. Here’s the official synopsis of the book On Stranger Tides written by Tim Powers:

“Puppeteer John Chandagnac, bound for Jamaica to recover stolen money from his uncle, becomes Jack Shandy after pirates attack his ship and force him to join their crew. Shandy’s struggle to accept his new life grounds the story for readers, even as Blackbeard and vodun magicians whisk everyone away to dreamlike lands where the Fountain of Youth itself awaits. The chaotic sea battles sing, though at times key events happen so quickly that they get lost in the shuffle as Jack tries to comprehend where he’s going and what’s at stake.”


So what’s the deal here? Are Disney ripping off a book? Can’t be the case. Maybe they’re going to adapt the book into a movie. Either way, I’m excited for Pirates 4.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides has Chicago director, Rob Marshall, rumored to be directing, with Johnny Depp being the only cast member we know of so far who is definitely returning (Keira Knightley has previously said no to returning). Production is supposed to start next Spring and is (as mentioned) set to be released in the summer of 2011.
