Rob Marshall to Helm Pirates of the Caribbean 4

Rumors pegging Rob Marshall take the helm and direct Pirates of the Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides have panned out to be true.

Per AICN, Marshall dropped the bomb during a q/a following a DGA screening of his latest theatrical effort, Nine. He has already met with Johnny Depp to discuss the film and both are naturally excited to set sail and begin production.

Marshall takes over for Gore Verbinski who left the project to pursue a film adaptation of BioShock that sank before it had a chance to leave port. Rough seas were also encountered earlier this year when rumors circulated that Johnny Depp would not return to reprise Captain Jack Sparrow after Disney let go their chief and his friend, Dick Cook.

Thankfully all seems on the right track once again in the Pirates of the Caribbean universe.
