    Wow, I have been wanting to read On Stranger Tides ever since Ron mentioned it. After some hints, my girlfriend got it for me for my bday on September 10, and the next day Disney annouce a 4th pirates movie based on it.

    I read the awesome prologue tonight, and I'm looking forward to getting stuck into the rest of the book :D

    So Now We Have A Movie, Based On A Book And Theme Park Ride And Electronic Video Game, Which Was Itself Based On A Theme Park Ride And Book. Yikes!

    They changed the title in the last minute, and called it
    Pirates of the Caribbean: The Secret of Monkey Island.

    It seems to be real, there's a Washington Post article on it for more mainstream confirmation.

    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/09/11/AR2009091102961.html

    Though the mainstream media don't seem to realise that this is also the title of a pirate book. There must be some agreement with Powers over this, they can't just nick his title for similar pirate related media, it would raise far too many legal issues.

    We're getting some forum confirmation that Powers was aware, it seems.

    It is very real.

    I somehow doubt it...
  • The Tingler on 11 Sep, 2009, 22:47…
    And yet somehow it seems to be real!

    You didn't hear about the 4th one when Bioshock film was put on hold to free the director of the original series to do the other one?

    Man, you guys must be living under a rock somewhere. The rock that lacks imdb and Wikipedia.

    (That said, subtitle is still unconfirmed)
  • elTee on 11 Sep, 2009, 22:29…
    This post isn't here to say "new POTC film" - because you're right, it's been known about for a very long time. It's the convoluted MI connection that is newsworthy.
  • MarioColbert on 11 Sep, 2009, 22:39…
    I hoped "that said the subtitle is still unconfirmed" would, perhaps, shed light to the silliness of what I wrote, yet I submit that it's been a terribly long week, I've been quite tired, and my sense of humour is possibly lacking at best, and is utterly gone at worst.

    I think after the Secret History run of the articles most everyone should be aware of the book, though I've yet to read it. Thanks for the kind kindness (and for not calling me a doofus), regardless.

    Please do read it, it's a very exciting story, and you get to meet the character that most certainly was the inspiration to LeChuck, that Blackbeard is described as one hell of a mysteriously scary ghostly voodoopirateking monster :)

    Looks like a video game spin-off.

    As long as this is better than At World's End...
  • Ascovel on 11 Sep, 2009, 22:14…
    That would be tough. At World's End was my favorite of the three.
  • Kroms on 11 Sep, 2009, 22:20…
    Genius ending. They must've worked on that for ages.
  • clone2727 on 11 Sep, 2009, 22:58…
    Really? I couldn't stand At World's End. I hated it. I thought it was all over the place.
  • Kroms on 11 Sep, 2009, 23:31…
    If it ain't the Curse of the Black Pearl, it was total shit.
  • clone2727 on 11 Sep, 2009, 23:38…
    I agree. The first was just so awesome... the next two were just so bad...
  • Ascovel on 12 Sep, 2009, 08:21…
    I liked the first the least. It felt quite boring and cliched at times. The other two were much more imaginative.

    Polanski's Pirates are better than all three though.
  • The Tingler on 11 Sep, 2009, 23:21…
    Loved the first two, but the third was convoluted nonsense with none of the fun value.
  • jp-30 on 12 Sep, 2009, 00:55…
    Stagnetti's Revenge was overblown.
  • The Tingler on 12 Sep, 2009, 09:33…
    Overblown but it stuffed in everything I wanted in a Monkey Island Pirates movie.
