Hopefully Brett Ratnerâ€™s too busy licking glutinous fairy-floss from an exotic dancerâ€™s ass to read todayâ€™s Variety.
â€œPirates of the Caribbean 4â€ is in need of a director.
Gore Verbinski, director of the first three films, has informed the House of Mouse, and producer Jerry Bruckheimer, that he wonâ€™t be returning to helm Jack Sparrowâ€™s fourth voyage across the cinematic ocean.
The filmmaker tells the trade, “I had a fantastic time bringing ‘Pirates’ to life, and I am eternally grateful to Jerry, Johnny and the rest of the creative and production team,” Verbinski said. “I’m looking forward to all of us crossing paths again in the future.”
Instead, Verbinski will turn his attention to â€œBioshockâ€, a Universal Pictures adaptation of the bestselling vidgame that has a John Logan script and is likely to be Verbinski’s next film as a director.
With â€œPiratesâ€ expected to set sail again next year, chances are Disneyâ€™s already got their sights on a replacement.
