Rob Marshall to Replace Gore Verbinski on Pirates 4

Reports have stated that Disney has been looking at many different directors to replace Gore Verbinski for the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie, and they seem to have settled with Mr. Rob Marshall.

"For those of you who aren’t so familiar with Mr. Marshall, the announcement comes as a shock because the director is best known for his musical work. He’s only got a few jobs on his resume, but the big one is the 2002 Best Picture winner Chicago, which starred Catherine Zeta-Jones, Richard Gere, and Renee Zellweger. After that, he moved on to a less-musical period drama in Memoirs of a Geisha — which also pulled in some Oscar gold. His next due film is another musical based on an earlier screenplay written by the legendary Federico Fellini. The film is called Nine and it has a juggernaut cast including Daniel Day-Lewis, Nicole Kidman, Penelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard, Kate Hudson, Dame Judi Dench, and Sophia Loren." (GeeksofDoom)

How do you feel about all of these cast (Bloom and Knightley) and crew not being in on #4? Frankly I am afraid that it's going to flop and it will ruin the franchise, all because they wanted more cash. Comment with your ideas and feelings and fears, are you happy that they're changing things up or do you want things to remain the same?


  1. Why are they changing directors, though? Was it personal choice of the first one? Also, is Claus Badelt still doing the soundtrack, do you know? BTW camp sucks, save me.

  2. Disney wanted to change the director, they want to make this film very focused on the characters and not the storyline, the way Gore does it... IDK about the soundtrack

    I'm sorry camp sucks!
    we'll have to chill when you get back

  3. psst: BTW "Zombie girl" is my corpse bride email... don't use it often though
