Their will be a fourth sequel of Pirates of the Caribbean, but sad to say Orland Bloom and Keira Knightly didn't sign up for it; they have abandoned the ship. They are the characters that made me keep of watching the sequels, but now that they won't be part of it I'm not sure if I'll enlist myself as a sure-audience once the movie embark on theaters. Are you going to watch it even without the charming characters?

Really? Awesome2x.. I for sure would want to watch once it's out because I like Captain Jack Sparrow very much, he's such a colorful character, full of antics and tricks, LOL. I think they will replace Orlando and Keira with more or less lovable characters and will give a plot that will make audiences jump. Aye2x..Captain Jack!

hi katkat!^^ is that true? will there really be a fourth sequel of the Pirates of the Caribbean? that's great! i was kinda disappointed with the last film and i wanted more but i thought it was the last. i want to see more of Jack Sparrows. He's a really fun character. Johnny Depp is a really great actor. I'm actually looking forward to Alice in Wonderland where he will be playing Mad Hatter. I don't really mind if Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightly will not be present anymore in the fourth sequel of Pirates. I think their story have concluded in the last movie. I think it would be great if Jack Sparrow will have a new adventure and new friends.^^

I would agree about Johnny Depp being a great actor, but I dare take the opposing side regarding Orlando and Keira's story, which left me with so many questions and a lot of possibilities to end it. But the story should be about Jack Sparrow; thus I'm racing the white flag now. Enjoy the fourth sequel.

Well interesting neither Bloom or Knightley were offered roles in the proposed fourth movie, with the idea of it being taken in a new direction focussing on Jack Sparrow and hopefully launching a new trilogy. Except now Johnny Depp is uncertain whether he wants to return due to issues behind the scene and so the proposed movie may end up being pulled whilst the issues are worked out. I will probably end up watching it if it ever gets made but I wont be rushing too see it. It will be more out of loyalty having watched the first 3 I will want to see what happens next.

That's quite a juicy information--lurking issues moviegoers are not aware of. Moviegoers are more interested of seeing it on the big screen, but conflicts could help heighten its publicity, making us more curious as the play date nears.

Personally, I'm not too sure about this. I thought that after the first Pirates of the Caribbean film, the trilogy started to go seriously downhill, and became more and more non-sensical with each film, to the point where I was scratching my head wondering what the hell was going on. Plus, I think it will be a bad idea filming a fourth PotC without the full original cast

I think so. I hope this would be the last one. If its Harry Potter I wouldn't mind watching more sequels. Back to Pirates of the Caribbean, I just hope if this is suppose to be the culmination/conclusion, they should have all the original casts, including the ones I like, of course, other than Jack Sparrow.

never really cared about orlando bloom... keira knightly is great eye candy but i'm sure the movie can find someone as hot, if not someone hotter than ms. knightly, to fill in the shoes. i've always watched the series because of jack sparrow and not because of will turner and elizabeth. heard that the father of jack sparrow will make an appearance in the movie and it will be played by mick jagger. now just for that bit, i'll surely watch this movie. like pirates say... aaaaarrrrrrgggggghhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!

Thanks for the additional information. Now that you mention it, I'm now wondering will there ever be another Lady that will spice up the scene other than the countless pirates/guys in the movie. It seems that women are a minority in the movie. Perhaps, it's time for Jack to have affairs of the heart, though he's not as charming as Will; nonetheless, he has his antics to watch out for.

Keira and Orlando were ok, and I'm sure they're replace them with some great actors as well, so as long Depp is in it I'm IN!

Jack Sparrow's crew are getting bigger. I bet you'll watch it with your friends.

Wow. For a second there I was worried. I thought you were gonna say that jack sparrow wasn't going to be in it. That would have killed the series. Although to be honest, just doing a fourth one is enough to kill the series anyway. I don't think the series would have been nearly as big as it was without Johnny depp.

The fourth one, I supposed must be the last one. Who would they remove next? Since the story is getting longer, people would be more confuse; Instead each sequel should be answering the mystery so as to conclude the story. I'm not getting tired of seeing Jack Sparrow, but I guess Johnny Depp could try other characters to portray. Something that will challenge him more and startled his fans, as he always does, but he could do it better, I bet.

I won't bother watching it if Orlando Bloom is not in it. Will Turner is my favorite character, and it won't be any fun without him.

Are you really sure about that? Not even a peek? I guess it would be best to watch the movie, so that we could determine why they have to exclude these lovable characters. Somehow, perhaps, it's justifiable.

That's kind of strange since when At World's End came out, Orlando was 100% behind the idea of another...it was Johnny Depp and Jerry Bruckheimer who said if Disney wanted a fourth they wouldn't be involved. That makes me sad because I was sure that this one was going to end with Barbossa and Elizabeth finding the Fountain of Youth and Elizabeth and Will living happily forever after. Since that's how they set it up on the last one.

It will never be complete if Elisabeth and Will don't live happily ever after. I thought for sure they would have to make a fourth one just for that.

Johnny Depp is still in the movie though and him being in a movie is a huge deal for most people. Honestly, I could careless if Orlando Bloom or Kira Knightly are in the movie. Now if Johnny Depp dropped out I wouldn't bother going. No one can replace him in the role he plays in the films.

Replacing Johnny Depp--that's a NO NO. If they want to earn from this movie similar to its predecessor, Johnny Depp must play the role of Jack Sparro; otherwise, their ship of earnings will sink in no time. And if they did, they'll have a hard time thinking of someone who could be at least at par with Johnny Depp's acting prowess. What self-inflicting pain they get into!

I do not really care about those two as my eyes are set on Johnny Depp only . Plus, the story would be boring if it will keep on focusing with these two lovers.

I agree, joyadalia. I think these would be better off doing a romantic movie or something that could manifest their chemistry together. About focusing on Johnny Depp instead, I wouldn't argue about that, since that's understandable, very understandable.

wow...jack Sparrow is back...I will surely see the movie as it was Jack who hooked me in to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise not Bloom or Keira.. I am a huge fan of Johnny Depp, and the way he plays Jack is inimitable.. Is the story based on the voyage of Jack to find fountain of youth as depicted in the climax scene of 'At worlds end' or is it a new story? Anyway i hope the movie will be a great one like its predecessors..

As I've read on Yahoo last night, it will be about Jack Sparrow; thereby, the presence of Orlando and Keira's character are'nt necessary, after all. We're on the same boat here, I, too, is a fan of Johnny Depp, for he's like a chameleon changing characters every now and then: he can be funny, serious, or a combination. When he's on screen he's like a different person, having the personality of the character he portrays. But of course, he's not a copycat, definitely not. I hope you agree with me here.

I'll probably watch it, but I'll miss those two. How could they, excuse the pun, jump ship like that? Those two + Depp made the films what they were, without their dynamic, it will not be the same at all. On the other hand, Marvel's doing the same thing with Spiderman IV--all new cast. Ironman II had a different Rhodey than the first one. Personally, i hate it when they try and make sequels with completely different cast members playing the same characters.

It will be weird without Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightly for sure. I want to see it because I enjoyed the first three movies a lot, but I am affraid it won't be as good if there is original cast from earlier sequals missing. Somehow it's not the same if suddenly someone else is casted for the same part. I love Jack Sparrow though, so that's enough to at least make me watch it .

That will be weird not to have Orlando Bloom and Kiera Knightley's characters- I think its a big risk for the movie makers. This could make the 4th Pirates movie either really good or a total flop. I'm curious to see it, though. :o

It's really disapointed that they would be absent from this 4e movie but it doesn't matter because my big favourite is Jack Sparrow, he's so funny! haha
