SDCC: ‘Pirates 4’ Starts Shooting Next Spring!

ComingSoon got an interview with Disney‘s Head of Production Oren Aviv in which they squeezed some Pirates of the Caribbean news out of him.

Pirates of the Caribbean producer Jerry Bruckheimer has already confirmed that a script was in the works and now it seems that Disney is on board as well.

“We’re going to shoot ‘Pirates 4’ in April or May of next year”, Aviv told ComingSoon during their interview. “We are going to release it hopefully in 2011 is the plan.” He said that this time they would only be doing one movie that would “hopefully be the first of another trilogy.”

“It’s important to get the story right and it’s important to me to scale it down, because we can’t get bigger”, Aviv admitted. “The movies have subsequently gotten bigger and bigger and very complicated and they were satisfying on so many levels obviously, but I want to kind of reboot the whole thing and bring it down to its core, its essence, just characters.” He agreed that there is a lot of Captain Jack Sparrow’s back story that we haven’t seen yet without confirming or denying that we might see some of that in the fourth movie. Still no word on whether Gore Verbinski might come back for the fourth movie.
