Turns out Rob Marshall’s flip announcement that he’d be directing Pirates 4 (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) is still true, even after his latest, Nine, flopped. According to MSNBC: it’ll shoot this summer, all over a dude’s chest.

The fourth installment of Disney’s popular “Pirates of the Caribbean” series will be filmed in Hawaii, according an announcement Monday by Gov. Linda Lingle.
Johnny Depp will return to his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” which will be released in 2011. The film is produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Rob Marshall.

The last two were directed by Gore Verbinski, and the last one was harder to sit through than Transformers 2, so I’m glad they’ve got some new blood.  And since it’s Rob Marshall, I imagine he’ll focus on my favorite aspects of the Pirates franchise.  Namely the makeup, and the dancing.

That’s me and my frat bro Jake at the premiere.  Cool outfits, right?  It was a mad house, we had to hold hands in case to keep from getting separated.
