At Comic-Con, fans got a surprise from Captain Jack Sparrow that he’ll be returning for a fourth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
Speaking in character via a video vignette, Johnny Depp has unveiled details and confirmed the rumours that Penelope Cruz was to be his co-star in On Stranger Tides and gave a clue as to what the plot would be about.
Cruz plays Angelica, a woman from Sparrow’s past, and obviously, the love interest in the movie.
According to the synopsis already released by the film’s producers, Captain Jack Sparrow can’t decide if it’s love, or if she’s a ruthless con artist who’s using him to find the fabled Fountain of Youth.
When she forces him aboard the Queen Anne’s Revenge, the ship of pirate Blackbeard, Jack finds himself on an unexpected adventure in which he doesn’t know who to fear more: Blackbeard or the woman from his past.
Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides meanwhile opens on May 20, 2011. To get a little taster, watch Depp in the video teaser after the jump!
