Update On Pirates 4 News

As I reported earlier, Penelope Cruz is set to join the new pirates installment along with Ian McShane. now it also appears the Geoffrey Rush is set to come back as the awesome and fantastic Captain Barbossa.

Let's give it up to MTV for catching up with producer Jerry Bruckheimer at the ShoWest Convention in Las Vegas and grabbed a few things out of his mouth. 
MTV News has exclusively learned exactly how Cruz fits into the story: She’s the daughter of Depp’s nemesis. “She plays the daughter of Blackbeard,” executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer told MTV News at ShoWest in Las Vegas. “She’s the daughter of the bad guy.
“She brings a lot of humor to it. And the fact that she’s so feisty,” he continued, adding that there will be “a little romance between [Depp's] Captain Jack and the character that Penelope plays.”
Ian McShane is to set to play Blackbeard, the main adversary to Captain Jack Sparrow. As Bruckheimer put it, Blackbeard is “the nastiest pirate ever.”
Geoffrey Rush, who has played Barbossa in the three previous “Pirates” films, told MTV News in September that he expected to reprise his role in “On Stranger Tides,” and Bruckheimer confirmed that will indeed be the case.
Bruckheimer also confirmed that the story will focus on The Fountain of Youth, and that they are currently casting new actors to bring in fresh characters. The guy who’s eye kept popping out and his partner in crime won’t be returning.

This all sounds real dope. McShane proved more than his worth on HBO's Deadwood, also co-staring Timothy Olyphant who can now be seen in The Crazies.  

But if you're still unsure about the chops McShane's gonna be bringing to Blackbeard, then check this shit out big homie...

Munki Out.
