The Internet is full of speculation and theories on the Pirates franchise and whether or not it will continue after the third installment. It’s no secret that Johnny Depp has stated his interest in keeping the character of Jack Sparrow alive as long as the storyline remains strong. Apparently he’s having as much fun as we are.
That said, I have it on good authority, granted from one source, that filming for Pirates IV is scheduled to begin in August with Depp on board. According to the source Bloom and Knightley will not return. Again, this line of rumor is all over the Internet with various takes on the characters and story possibilities. Be warned should you decide to follow-up on this that there are some potential spoilers floating around out there. Be ye warned says I.
