Cornwall To Stand In For The Caribbean For 'Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides'

It looks as if the fourth film in Disney's "Pirates" series is going to be very different than the prior three. A lot of things from the other films will be missing, like actors Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightly, but surprisingly, in "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides", the Caribbean will be missing also.

It seems that the film makers, lead by director Rob Marshall, have chosen Cornwall, England, as their primary shooting location.

That is a far less exotic location than the first three films used. All of them were actually shot in the Caribbean and on the California coast.

One thing that will not be missing is Johnny Depp, who will once again be donning the dreads and gold teeth as Captain Jack Sparrow, reportedly alongside a new leading lady in Penelope Cruz.

Though this new "Pirates" movie will be shot off the coast of Cornwall, the film is still set to take place in sunnier climates, like its namesake local and Florida.

The plot for "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" will be based on author Tim Powers 1987 novel, "On Stranger Tides". It can only be assumed that Powers main character, Jack 'Shandy' Chandagnac, will be replaced by Captain Jack Sparrow, who, if the film follows the books plot, will become a reluctant member of the infamous buccaneer Blackbeard's crew, who is on a quest for the fountain of youth.

Cornwall is just like the Caribbean......isn't it?
