Pirates of the Caribbean 4 Is a Go

Captain Jack's back!

The Wrap reports that Pirates of the Caribbean actor Johnny Depp made a surprise appearance at Disney's D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, on Friday, riding a giant pirate ship and decked out in his Captain Jack Sparrow costume to deliver some might good news to the assemblage: the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie is going full steam ahead.

Of course, when he's making $55 million a pop for the Pirates movies, why wouldn't he sign on for another one?

What's more, the movie has a title and a release date—Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides will sail into theaters in summer 2011.

As long as he was on hand and dressed like a pirate for the occasion, Depp couldn't resist hamming it up for the crowd a bit, referencing Disney's other upcoming project, Princess and the Frog.

“Where’s the talking frog?” Depp muttered while weaving around the stage in faux (?) drunkenness. “Where has the frog gone? I like those—tastes like chicken."

Tell us in the comments section: Are you excited to see another Pirates of the Caribbean movie, or has the franchise run its course?

    I read somewhere that Russel Brand, Zac Efron and Robert Pattinson will appear in the 4th movie of Pirates.Can you imagine those 3 plus Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom in the same movie??All girls will past out in the cinemas! Oh my God no x( Why do Zac and Robert have to be everywhere? Why? I dislike Zac, but I don't think I would mind. He could be Orlando and Kiera's son lol. BUT I HATE ROBERT TO THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART AND WILL NOT STAND TO SEE HIM IN MY MOVIES! Oh and I heard that Orlando Bloom and Kiera Knightly won't be in it :( But alls I need is Johnny Depp
