Our future can be distant indeed.
I have always seen Michael Bay and Jerry Bruckheimer as two peas from the same pod. Each enjoys their explosive films and both apply the same type of fun and hyper-kinetic formula to their films. Earlier in 2005 Michael Bay experienced his first domestic bomb of a film with The Island. Now we have Jerry Bruckheimer up to bat with his highly anticipated sequel Pirates
of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. With the proper mix of action and comedy, Bruckheimer can do what he did with Black Pearl and invite every type of moviegoer back to the theatres.
Fortunately, Disney felt the same way and allowed Bruckheimer and
Gore Verbinski to do the same thing that Peter Jackson did for Lord of the Rings-- shoot multiple films back to back. So, instead of having one Pirates sequel on the way we have two; finishing the franchise with a trilogy.
However, is three enough?
Jerry Bruckheimer Wants More Pirates
The good people over at IESB have recently caught wind of words that slipped through Bruckheimer's lips while doing a junket for the upcoming film Glory Road.
According to Jerry Bruckheimer he hopes to continue to stories further... If it were up to him he would continue doing more.
But don't take our word for it, head over to IESB to read the entire report.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest will set sail on July 7th.
