Bruckheimer On Cruz’s Role In Fourth “Pirates”

Jerry Bruckheimer says that Penelope Cruz’s role in “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” is as the daughter of the film’s villain Blackbeard (Ian McShane).

Appearing at ShoWest, Bruckheimer tells MTV News that “she brings a lot of humor to it. And the fact that she’s so feisty.” He also confirmed that there will be “a little romance between [Depp’s] Captain Jack and the character that Penelope plays.”

Though Geoffrey Rush will be back as Barbossa as well, Bruckheimer says the story is “going to take a whole new direction” and they’re “looking for some new kids to be in it” in supporting roles which are being tested right now.

Filming on the next ‘Pirates’ film kicks off in June under the helm of Rob Marshall.
