PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES producer Jerry Bruckheimer confirmed on his Twitter today that the fourth film’s 3D trailer is set to debut in front of Disney’s anticipated blockbuster TRON:LEGACY this December.
The confirmation tweet came in response to Q&A exchanges on Bruckheimer’s account when a fan asked for info on a STRANGER TIDES teaser trailer. Bruckheimer responded: “Working to get it done to go in front of TRON, in theaters 12/17.”
With TRON:LEGACY being such a high-profile 3D release this upcoming holiday season, it’s the perfect platform from which to launch PIRATES 4 in theaters, setting up Johnny Depp‘s fourth high seas adventures as Captain Jack Sparrow but his first in 3D. Director Rob Marshall is shooting ON STRANGER TIDES in 3D to take full advantage of the popular, trendy film format.
PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN is scheduled to open in theaters May 20, 2011 and stars Johnny Depp, Ian McShane and Penelope Cruz, penned by Terry Rossio and Ted Elliott.
TRON:LEGACY opens December 17th in Disney Digital 3D and IMAX 3D, directed by Joe Kosinski and starring Jeff Bridges, Garrett Hedlund, Olivia Wilde and Michael Sheen.
