Jacks Back

If it weren't for internet geeks we'd have to wait ages for any decent movie news. One particularly interesting piece hit the web tonight, suggesting the return of one of cinema's coolest characters.

As Johnny Depp strolled on stage to the usual insane applause at this years Disney's D23 Expo he had more than Mad Hatters and Cheshire Cats on his mind. The mega star appeared on stage as Captain Jack Sparrow, revealing the official title of the heavily anticipated fourth installment of the Pirates of The Caribbean franchise.

Pirates of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides has been given a ETA of summer 2011. As of yet, there is no official word on plot, with Depp simply adding that the script looks good and hopefully most familiar faces will return.

Will we see Captain Jack go searching for the fountain of youth? After all that's where he was heading when we last saw him. Or will we see captain and crew go on some new adventure to strange and distant shores? Hopefully they'll steer clear of the pitfalls that tainted the previous installment. No unnecessarily complex plot thanks, just show us Jack Sparrow drinking rum and sword fighting. A sea monster would be nice too.

Check out the official teaser poster below.

Expect to hear more about Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides in the coming months.
