PoTC 4

There will be a Pirates of the Caribbean 4 staring Johnny Depp according to Disney. Depp just signed a three picture contract including Jack Sparrow in Pirates 4, the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland (directed by Tim Burton), and Tonto in the Lone Ranger.

Depp gets the largest advance salary in history for Pirates 4 - $55 million. Considering that the PoTC franchise has taken in over a billion and a half, that seems fair.

No further word on cast, plot, or release date. I'm hoping that they give Will and Elizabeth a rest and limit them to a cameo or skip them completely. They've done about everything that they can with those characters and Elizabeth's character has enough trouble as a single mother (ok, she's married but Will is about as absent as is possible).
