Pirates 4 Start Date Confirmed

Oren Aviv has told Coming Soon.net that the next ‘Pirates Caribbean’ has a start date.

He told the web blog “We’re going to shoot ‘Pirates 4’ in April and May of next year. We are going to release it hopefully in 2011 is the plan”

Their hoping that Pirates 4 will be the start of a new trilogy, focusing on a smaller film, rather then the huge stories that played out in the last trilogy.

Gore Verbinski has not said whether he’ll be returning to the role of director.

Bioshock to be Adapted

Bioshock to be Adapted

Bioshock I suppose if he can turn a 6-minute animatronic boat ride into 8 hours of entertaining film, he can be the one to break the curse of the video game adaptations, too. Gore Verbinski, most famous for his sprawling, epic trilogy ‘The Pirates of the Caribbean,’ has signed on to adapt XBox 360 game Bioshock. While I am of the opinion that video game adaptations can’t be successfully pulled off due to the nature of the very thin narrative games inherently have, Verbinski noted the following regarding the game:

“I think the whole utopia-gone-wrong story that’s cleverly unveiled to players is just brimming with cinematic potential,” said Verbinski. “Of all the games I’ve played, this is one that I felt has a really strong narrative.”

Bioshock follows the story of an underwater city living by the Ayn Rand philosophy. When a pilot accidentally lands in the city, he learns that things are not quite as they seem. John Logan, writer of ‘Aviator’ is in talks to pen the script.
