Tim Burton On Board For New "Pirates" film?


Posted October 8, 2008 - By Joseph Baxter

Cinemablend.com is reporting of rumblings of a new Pirates of the Caribbean film centering on Jack Sparrow. The rumor of note? Tim Burton may be on board to direct it! (Stress the word MAY since Gore Verbinski was also looking to return.)

Other rumors include the return of Geoffrey Rush, and either Sacha Baron Cohen or Russell Brand to possibly play Jack's brother. The new film will suposedly feature Jack Sparrow's search for the Fountain of Youth. All of this comes from anonymous tipsters according to cinemablend and should (as any rumors of this type) be taken with a grain of salt. So no promise rings have been given on anything yet.

What's a greater wonder than the actual rumors themselves is whether or not anyone will actually care. The last POTC film took a radical, surrealistic departure from what made the series charming and could be better described as a Pirates on Peyote. Is Tim Burton going to step in and salvage this?
