The Disney release was pretty much boilerplate fare—brief career summaries of the main cast and crew, non-specific info on filming locations (Hawaii, United Kingdom, Los Angeles). But, perhaps on the heels of media coverage of a copy of the Pirates 4 script being found in a London café this week, Disney’s release did reveal some basic plot details:
“In this action-packed tale of truth, betrayal, youth and demise, Captain Jack Sparrow crosses paths with a woman from his past (Penelope Cruz), and he’s not sure if it’s love—or if she’s a ruthless con artist who’s using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth. When she forces him aboard the Queen Anne’s Revenge, the ship of the formidable pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn’t know who to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past.”
All right, not exactly MAJOR plot details, but still.
There was even some media speculation circulating today that Disney execs might have actually planted the 194-page Pirates 4 script in the café—since the unnamed person who found it immediately, without reading it, passed the script on to the British tabloid paper The Sun, which, in turn, returned it to the studio without revealing any details.
“I’m a big fan of the films, but I managed to resist the urge to have a read,” the unnamed Sun reader was quoted as saying. “I want to enjoy the movie when it comes out.”
Said a Disney spokesman in return: “It’s good to know that Sun readers are honorable citizens.”
Hmmmm. Let the hype begin!
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is slated to open on May 20, 2011.
Looking forward to more photos, Mr. Bruckheimer!
