    Huh? Seems kinda odd but I guess it all depends on her role. Spanish seductress maybe?

  • clue

    They should get ROBERT PATTINSON in the Pirates movie too. Robert + Johnny= absolute hit.

  • deneb

    definitely not excited!

  • bobo

    no way, her accent will kill the movie ewwwwwwww

  • mary smith


    won’t bother if she’s in it.

  • Barney

    First things first…why even make another POTC? Is it really necessary?
    Next thing…what the hell is up with that ridiculous hair?

  • Cindy Lou Who

    He’s pretty fug.

  • isobel

    wow , love them both and i never miss any of Johnny’s movie, he is the best, so looking forward to the POTC IV, even if its only to look at captain Jack Sparrow

  • cleanfun

    only the first POTC was good, so I expect 4th to be the worst movie ever, Depp is such a sellout now

  • Anon

    Man, Johnny Depp and John Mayer look sorta alike, it is spooky.

  • *Belinda*

  • ummahyk

  • brian

    they had absolut no chemistry during blow

  • spanish girl

  • Happy_Evil_Dude

    Vanessa Paradis better watch out with this notorious homewrecker around her man.

  • blair mary


  • Claudia


  • cutiemcfreckles

    that would be the only thing that might make me eventually watch this movie!

  • So Judgemental

    So Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightly and wood eye guy are out.

    The whole movie is Captain Jack centric and Penelope Cruz will be a Spanish temptress/female pirate? A love interest/competitor trying to beat him to the Fountain of Youth?

    Interesting. They definitely had smoking hot sex scenes in Blow.. a PG-13 version of that chemistry could be entertaining.

  • Twi-baby

    He’s a wierdo.

  • kami

    so we’ll get to see her smile a lot and speak in her thick spanish accent. i guess some people call that acting.

  • amayafm

    please not her!!I’m from Spain and I don’t want her for this rol!!

  • http://google toni

    I’ve always love him since “21 Jump Street”
    He’s hot.

  • K

    I cannot stand her,she barely speaks Spanish let alone English.
    I would love Jack Sparrow to hook up with Elizabeth,stupid Keira.

  • Castlequeen

    Can’t wait for the 4th part!

  • kate

    wow! i think it is because rob marshall is the director… when she did “nine” she said she would love to work with him again..

  • Laura

    If the pirates’ trilogy was already ruined with the third film why this?! Penelope Cruz is just the WORSE option for this

  • elle

    PENELOPE is a huge actress

  • nadi


  • juliet

    ahh nooo please uhh!!

  • Shelley

    Not excited for her. I love the POTC movies, but please do not add her.

  • lakers fan in boston

    why are they making another POTC…..
    i really hate it when hollywood extends franchises so far
    hopefully it’ll be decent like the 1st three but i have a feeling the more movies that come out, the worse they’ll be
    i wonder who penelope would play tho

  • doctorsdatingsite

    wow, this looks good

  • robert


  • sarah

    NO! this sucks ….i mean the cuking movie was great when jack &elizabeth …were flirting …..i think they could have been more than friends…….they are like the mean characters now…elizabeth is pirate king…! she has to be in this part! ……
    i hate the new director…………

  • marianne

    can’t waait for the filmm

  • rachel

    hey people,what wrong with you??First ;no matter that orlando or keira not be on the movie,who cares?? and penelope is an actress that won an oscar,and she always is nominate ,more than another actress,that means that she is good,well.,and pirates really needs another movie,a REALLY GOOD ONE,with a good director, like cameron,…anyway,this is good too,I wish johnny the best ,success and good luck in this movie and alice too,I hope that make a lot of money around the world,SUCCESS!.oh and johnny looks HOT likes always and so cute!, I love this man,.. HERE IS THE SEXIEST MAN ALIVE EVER

  • Luis

    I’m not really exited… not a huge Penelope fan…
    I was expecting more someone like Kate Beckinsale, Eva Green, Emily Blunt, Scarlet Johanssen, Natalie Portman, Jessica biel etc…

    Seriously, if someone from the pirates staff reads this, please reconsider hiering someone else

  • angela

    Zoe Saldana would have been a better choice. She was already in the first movie too, so she can just reprise her role.
