Rob Marshall in talks to direct Pirates of the Caribbean 4



Disney is moving ahead with plans to shoot the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean [PIRT4] in 2010 with director Rob Marshall [RMARS] taking over at the helm.  After directing all three previous films, Gore Verbinski [GVERB] has left to pursue other opportunities.  Marshall previously directed Chicago, Memoirs of a Geisha and the upcoming Nine [NINE].  The musical choerographer turned film director seemed like an odd choice for an action adventure loaded with special effects.  Some still remember 1980's musical The Pirate Movie, inspired by Gilbert and Sullivan's The Pirates of Penzance, which gave cinematic pirates such a bad name that it took twenty years for Johnny Depp [JDEPP] to make them cool again.   Then again with its costumes, huge set pieces, and choreographed fights, Pirates of the Caribbean is a musical-like production without the song and dance numbers.  While the previous sequels got entangled with its over-complicated storylines, the fourth film offers a fresh start with a new sets of characters.  The end of Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End suggested that Jack Sparrow wwent off to Florida in search of the mythical Fountain of Youth.
