After Gore Verbinski who stranded the ship of Pirates of Caribbean in April, Producer Jerry Bruckheimer and Disney were in a search to captain their next production and are betting their stakes on choreographer-cum-director Rob Marshall of “Memoirs of a Geisha” and “Chicago” fame.
Mostly known to direct musicals, Rob Marshall may sound a little odd for an action film, but hopes are high on him for steering the ship carrying Johnny Depp as Captain Sparrow.
The last Pirates version “The World’s End” was released in April 2007 with the trio of prequels grossing over $2.67 billion worldwide till now. It’s confirmed that Rob Marshall will be directing ‘Pirates of Caribbean’ next installment, so much so that the studio has started sourcing for new actors for the film,
Marshall’s immediate release will be a musical “Nine” starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Penelope Cruz, Marion Cotillard, Judi Dench, Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson and Sophia Loren. It will be released on November 25th by The Weinstein Co.
