Jack Sparrow searching for Atlantis in POTC 4?

2653_jacksparrow300.jpgEach Pirates of the Caribbean movie have gradually got worse in nearly every way (apart from the visual effects) so actually I'm really quite happy that the rumors today from Cinema Blend is that Pirates of the Caribbean 4 will go in a completely different direction to the current trilogy. This is what a scooper told Cinema Blend...
€œthe ending of Pirates 3, the fountain of youth story might not be the only story they might used the next pirate€™s film. The fountain story could used in another form to introduce the story for Pirates 4€ the next film might be a departure from the same formula of the last three movies as well, meaning that Jerry Bruckheimer could be planning to enter the realm of Science Fiction this time around and it could be the heart of a new trilogy with Jack Sparrow and his crew of misfits. 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 (No, its not space but Disney had made animated movie about this place before with Michel J Fox voicing one of the characters).€
That's gotta be Atlantis. Wow, that is a really cool idea. I love stuff like the original Around the World in 80 Days where you would have these big flying machines and the such, blending genres in a Pirates of the Caribbean movie could be really awesome. Cinema Blend also say that they have heard that the movie will follow Jack Sparrow and Captain Barbosa with Kiera Knightley and Orlando Bloom left out of the picture. Let's be honest, they were reduced to just eye candy for their respective sexes by the third movie anyway. It's also said POTC 4 won't begin production for 2-4 years, so it might be a while before we see any more adventures from Cap N' Jack. Pirates of the Caribbean going Sci-Fi? Love the idea and a break for a few years is very much needed for this series.
