Pirates of the CaribbeanCapt. Jack Sparrow and co. are adding a new dimension to their adventures. According to Deadline.com, Disney studios chairman Rick Ross has just made the decision to shoot the fourth installment of 'Pirates of the Caribbean' in Disney Digital 3-D. The film is still set to be released on May 20, 2011.

Set to start filming this summer, 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' will again star Johnny Deep in dreadlocks and eyeliner as Capt. Sparrow. As Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom will not be reprising their roles as Elizabeth Swann and Will Turner this time around, Depp (and Geoffrey Rush, who also returns in this next film) will instead be joined by Ian McShane (as Blackbeard), Penelope Cruz and French actress Astrid Berges-Frisby (as an alluring young mermaid). The movie will be helmed by 'Chicago' director Rob Marshall. Pirates of the CaribbeanCapt. Jack Sparrow and co. are adding a new dimension to their adventures.

Both Disney and Depp have experienced success in the 3-D format, with Tim Burton's 'Alice in Wonderland' pulling in a whopping $980.5 million in worldwide box office. How the more expensive format fits in with the reports that the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced 'Pirates' 4 had been forced to shrink its production budget, however, remains to be seen.
