"Pirates 4" -- Hold the Gore (Verbinski)?

by | May 8, 2007 | Comments

It might not come as a shock to hear that director Gore Verbinski probably wants to take a break from the "Pirates" some time soon. Word is he might be collaborating with "Bloom County" creator Berkeley Breathed on a CGI flick.

One source indicates that Disney is almost assuredly going forward with "Pirates 4," but the man usually at the helm might be off adapting Mr. Breathed’s "Flawed Dogs: The Year End Leftovers at the Piddleton "Last Chance" Dog Pound" for Disney. This one would be a CGI sort of feature.

Further word states that BB’s "Mars Needs Moms" will also be made into a movie — only this one might be directed by Robert Zemeckis!

Hmm, I need to pick some of these books up, I think. I still think "Bloom County" was the funniest comic strip ever created. (Well, and "The Far Side." Oh, and "Calvin and Hobbes," obviously.)

But the big question is … who’ll they get to direct "Pirates 4"? Disney should get someone who still needs to make a good pirate movie, like Renny Harlin or Roman Polanski. (They directed "Cutthroat Island" and "Pirates," respectively, and there’s a double feature that’ll give you a fresh respect for the "POTC" series.)
