So last week some guy, who we never heard of, who worked at Disney left (or was asked to walk the plank depending who you read) and his departure has put Pirates of the Caribbean 4 in trouble. The LA Times spoke to Captain Sparrow aka Johnny Depp about Dick Cook’s departure and he told them without the guy who brought him aboard for the first one, he is not sure he wants to do the fourth one. He told them that he really trusted Cook and the feeling was mutual because the studio wasn’t sure of the direction that Depp wanted to take Sparrow in the first one but Cook stood by him and as we saw they won out.
As for the fourth planned “Pirates” movie, Depp said while he has a potential deal in place that will depend on how good the script is, his passion for the project at the moment has been severely dampened by the news that Cook will no longer be around.
“There’s a fissure, a crack in my enthusiasm at the moment,” Depp said. “It was all born in that office.”
I have a feeling we might not be getting a fourth Pirates for a while because Depp seems very loyal and this guy Cook sounds like someone you want to be loyal too. Plus it just seems to be delayed indefinitely and with rumors that both Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley are out and the third one doing so poorly, it sounds like POTC4 is in big trouble? Maybe we will just get the Son of Pirates of the Caribbean in about 10 years?
Paul Karslake's ‘You’ve forgotten one very important thing… I’m Keith Richards mate’ the latest amazing painting he painted of Keith Richards and Johnny Depp sold for $30,000 on May 25th! The first painting he painted of Keith Richards as a pirate was Johnny Depp's inspiration for Pirates of the Caribbean's Jack Sparrow.
Karslake also told me that he is working on some more art and if you are like me you can't wait to see it! Check out Paul Karslake's website and Artisan Fine Art to see more of his awesome artwork!
Ten years ago Paul Karslake painted a painting of his brother-in-law's bandmate Keith Richard as a pirate. A few years later Johnny Depp saw the painting and it inspired him to model Jack Sparrow after Karslake's pirate painting. Ten years later, Pirates of the Caribbean 3 is coming out with both Johnny Depp and the man who inspired his character, Keith Richards playing his dad. So why not commemorate the moment with a new painting, ‘You’ve forgotten one very important thing… I’m Keith Richards mate’! Karslake has immortalized the two pirates in a new painting, a painting revealed the same day Pirates of the Caribbean 3 is coming out! And what a way to capture the two, that painting is absolutely amazing! I am seriously typing this post in awe just looking at it!
Seriously you should check out his other artwork at Paul Karslake and Artisan Galleries, and I promise he will quickly become one of your favorite artists as he has become one of mine!
BTW ‘You’ve forgotten one very important thing… I’m Keith Richards mate’ will be on sale soon at the Artisan Fine Art.
