Pirates of the Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides

There's not a lot on the topic of the upcoming new Pirates movie, but MTV has a small interview clip with actor Geoffrey Rush. I originally came across the MTV article and video through Film School Rejects: my main source for news and updates on all things regarding film and acting.

A direct quote from MTV's site:

"Said Rush to Josh Horowitz: 'They're waiting for the screenplay writers to put together something that's beyond the trilogy, take it off into a new direction so that it's fresh and hopefully really interesting for an audience, that they're not going to just sausage-machine out something else, which wouldn't be so good.'"
I really enjoyed the trilogy, for better and worse, and there were plenty of big name actors that made the trilogy for me. I loved the evolution between the characters' relationships and am excited for this new direction which Rush mentioned. It'll be inspiring to see something which deviates from the amusement park ride even more and hopefully will continue the evolution in character development.

Most importantly, I'm excited to see if the great cast returns for the next installment. I know Rush has been told to keep his calendar clear; perhaps to begin filming as early as Spring 2010. We'll see what happens, but for now, head on over to MTV for the full interview.
