Rumours that another Pirates of the Caribbean sequel is in the offing have been confirmed now.
According to a report from Cinema Blend, actors Johnny Depp and Geoffrey Rush will reprise their roles of Captain Jack Sparrow and Captain Hector Barbossa, respectively.
However, no one else from the original three films will be re-cast, as the series will now revolve around Jack Sparrow.
The report also says that the next film, to be directed by Gore Verbinski again, could be a complete science fiction film.
"Some of the brainstorming going around involves some Jules Verne type of scenarios involving some pretty big flying machines, a man who wants to rule more than just the ocean, a encounter with the most famous and dangerous pirate of all, a race to get to a lost world (Hint, Hint!) and Jack and his crew going to where no pirate has gone before,” Moviehole quoted an insider, as stating on the site.
