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