Disney's fourth installment of their much loved 'Pirates' franchise 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' will arrive in theatres next May. Rob Marshall ('Chicago', 'Nine') takes to directorial duties this time around - does this mean more musical numbers? A new teaser poster for the sequel, which won't see Orlando Bloom nor Keira Knightley returning for, has been revealed by Disney and you can check it out below. This will be the first of the Pirates movies not directed by Gore Verbinski, whom opted instead to helm the animated movie 'Rango' about a swashbuckling chameleon. Gemma Ward ('The Strangers'), Ian McShane ('Death Race'), Penélope Cruz (below), Stephen Graham ('Snatch'), Geoffrey Rush ('House on Haunted Hill') and many others all join a returning Jack Sparrow, played of course by Johnny Depp.
"Captain Jack Sparrow (Depp) crosses paths with a woman from his past (Cruz), and he's not sure 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 the formidable pirate Blackbeard (McShane), 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' is set for a 20 May 2011 release stateside and will sail in UK theatres on 26 May.
