Producer Jerry Bruckheimer is slowly releasing more details about he fourth movie in Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, titled “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.”
At ShoWest, Bruckheimer confirmed to MTV Movies that Ian McShane would join the cast as Blackbeard, “the nastiest pirate ever.”
Penelope Cruz has signed on to play Blackbeard’s daughter. Bruckheimer says we’ll see “a little romance between Captain Jack and the character Penelope plays. She brings a lot of humor to it, and the fact that she’s so feisty.”
Bruckheimer also confirmed that Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush will return as Captain Jack Sparrow and Captain Barbossa, respectively. Orlando Bloom, however, is leaving the franchise behind.
Kiera Knightley is also not expected to return for the fourth “Pirates,” but don’t worry, boys, you’ll still have plenty to look at. Disney sent out a casting call seeking “beautiful female fit models. Must have a lean dancer body. Must have real breasts. Do not submit if you have implants.”
They’re serious about that last part. According to the New York Post, hopeful models will have to jog for the judges to confirm that everything that’s supposed to jiggle is jiggling.
