    'At World's End' not the end?

    Orlando Bloom has heard the same rumors you have.

    "At World's End" may not be the end of the world.

    Word on the Walt Disney Studios backlot is that, while "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End," which opens on Memorial Day weekend, is the end of the trilogy, it may not be the end of the franchise.

    From the L.A. Times

    If Depp's onboard, 'Pirates' may keep sailing
    By Mary McNamara

    "At World's End" may not be the end of the world.

    Word on the Walt Disney Studios backlot is that, while "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End," which opens on Memorial Day weekend, is the end of the trilogy, it may not be the end of the franchise.

    According to insiders, Johnny Depp has said he would be interested in keeping the swaggering Capt. Jack Sparrow alive in other pirate adventures and, as the film's production director Rick Heinrichs says, "If Johnny's interested, why wouldn't they?"

    Many of the larger set pieces have been kept and put in storage.

    Costar Orlando Bloom says he too has heard the rumors.

    "But they haven't said anything to me," he said with a laugh during an interview, "so I guess I'm not coming back."

    In the meantime, those left hanging by "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" need have no fear — "World's End" promises a complete end to the story begun in 2003's "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl."

    "All questions will be answered," Bloom says.

    Re: 'At World's End' not the end?

    Thats weird.... it opened right up for me. I must of signed up a long time ago and am still "cookied."

    Seriously, how long can they keep the franchise going before they run it into the ground. Theres a fine line between keeping a beloved series going and overkill. I love Pirates, but I'm not sure at what point the story lines will get strained and contrived enough to go beyond burnout.

    Re: 'At World's End' not the end?

    Johnny Depp has said several times how much he likes Captain Jack and would be willing to play him in future installments beyond the "trilogy." This is really no surprise.

    I think a prolonged hiatus would be good for the franchise, however. Putting together another POTC film too soon after At World's End could burn it out.

    I think this time the movie will be about sparrow and how he came to be.

    Re: 'At World's End' not the end?

    There has been talk about this before. It went like this:

    Depp would be interested in doing Jack again,

    The writers would try to come up with a script,
    possibly for another 3 pirate movies.

    The earliest probable date for any further
    Pirate movies would be a minimum of least
    3 years down the road.

    At this point it's just talk. If everything
    lines up, it might proceed. There's no
    doubt Disney would love to see future
    revenues for extending the series. Let's
    just hope they stop before the movies
    grind to a hault.

    I don't know if the same be said about Verbinsky and Buckenheimer... I think they wanted AWE to be the definate conclusion... But we will have to see the film in order to find out...

    (It is possable for Disney to take it to a differant production team... I am surprised no one has talked anything along the lines of animation yet...)

    Re: 'At World's End' not the end?

    Bruckheimer has said more than once he would do it.. as long as others are on board.. but it won't be for a while. Johnny also has an absolutely full plate at this point w/ quite a few movies backed up waiting production ( in various states of) and wouldn't be available for at least three years if not four.
    I have also heard from lesser cast members this rumour has been tossed around with them as well on set. So it is a good rumour.. but only time will tell.



    Mickey's cool but Johnny Depp Rocks !

    Re: 'At World's End' not the end?

    This rumor concerns me.

    I LOVE Pirates of the Caribbean. I ADORE Jack Sparrow (I wish I could find an "I {Heart} Jack Sparrow" shirt for men). But come on! Prolonging the life of the film series has the potential to greatly overwhelm the public. If you saturate the market with more product than demand, the value diminishes greatly.

    As a big fan of the franchise, movies and ride and all, I don't want to see such a great world fizzle out. I don't want the last movie they make to be the weakest. I wish someone would realize that there should be an end to every story and then it's time to find a new world and new characters to explore.

    If they do create more Pirates of the Caribbean films, I think the following guidelines should be considered:

    (1) A new trilogy with new characters. I love Capt. Jack, but there is more than one great pirate captain in the world. Also, piracy has be going on for all of history, there is so much material to work with.

    (2) Make it another trilogy. If you do one, might as well give the next storyline the same investment.

    (3) Maintain a high standard of effects, crew, etc.

    (4) Space out the movies, again make us wait to build anticipation and desire to go see them.

    I think there is a lot to be done with this franchise. I didn't think they could make another film, but then I was really surprised with Dead Man's Chest. It's definitely more Hollywood than Black Pearl, it maintains that spirit of adventure. Let's hope that this series doesn't end up in Davy Jones' locker!

    P.S. How do you top a war to save piracy itself? (as implied in the At World's End trailer.)

    I love the POTC movies, but i think any more might kill it. It would be such a shame for them to milk the franchise, which would then ultimatley cheapen the original trilogy.

    They could make a prequil (Speling?) trilogy. It would be kind of cool to see Jacks first meeting with Davey Jones and how he gets the pearl in the first place. Also what turned Jack into a Pirate? They could do alot with the story line that way.

    I wouldn't want it to happen this way. First off, this rumour is going on because Johnny Depp wouldn't mind doing more movies as Captain Jack Sparrow, also, if they make a whole new set of Pirate movies w/o any of the original characters, does that mean they'll be adding AA's of those pirates on the PotC ride? Hope not. :thumbsdown

    But I do agree with the fact that they should be spaced out.

    I agree, if they want to continue with Jack, it should be a prequel. How he became a pirate, why he became one, what led up to everything when they started the Black Pearl, etc.
