Rob Marshall On Fourth “Pirates” Status

Out doing promotion for his new musical adaptation “Nine”, director Rob Marshall talked with Coming Soon about his hiring to direct the next sequel in the ‘Pirates’ franchise, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”, for Disney Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer Films.

Marshall says it may not have progressed as far as you might have thought – “We’re still trying to figure out if it’s going to all happen. If it happens–I think Johnny’s doing a movie with Angelina Jolie in the spring (“The Tourist”) – so if it happens, we’ll start in the summer, and we’ll see. I’m excited. If it happens, it happens. I’d be thrilled. I just love Johnny and I’m excited about the genre.”

When asked about the film’s visuals, he said “I would need a script first. It all comes from the script and the story. You serve the story and you find out what the story is and then you work from there, that’s it. It’s simple.”
