PIR4TES to give the film its made up title has Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow sailing beyond parody towards the fountain of youth with Penelope Cruz’s Angelica in tow, McShane’s Blackbeard on their heels.

It’s very difficult to know if the fourth film will bring anything new to the series, the injection of hearty new blood into the cast will hopefully serve the film better than Chow Yun-Fat’s Sao Feng in the ‘thirdgid’ film.

Posters Ahoy etc,

We plundered IGN for these.
