Tim Burton <3 Johnny Depp for sure

So there are some big rumors flying around about the 4th Pirates of the Caribbean movie which might have it’s own trilogy. I hope they don’t push for the trilogy personally because that will probably lead to forcing out another 3 Pirates movies without trying to make them good. But this might not be the case if one of the rumors is true. Supposedly Gore Verbinski (the guy who directed the first 3 Pirates movies if you didn’t know) is returning to direct this movie but there’s whisperings about Tim Burton maybe taking over as director. If this is true, then Burton and Depp are going to be spending a lot of time together since Johnny Depp is playing the Mad Hatter (like I mentioned here) in Burton’s Alice in Wonderland movie. Seriously I always knew they had a thing for each other lol 😉 .

Anyway, Burton would probably do a good job with the Pirates movies especially since they’re supposed to be focusing on the past (at least that’s what I’ve heard) when Captain Jack and Barbossa were looking for the Fountain of Youth. I think it’s very plausible that this is what the 4th movie is going to be about because another one of the rumors is that Geoffrey Rush has signed on for the 4th movie as well. I do think it would be a better idea for Orlando and Keira to return in this movie seeing as how Will Turner is now immortal and Elizabeth isn’t. They could even make it a few years after the end of the last movie so Will’s son could be older and go looking for Jack’s help or something. But currently I’ve heard no rumors talking about Keira or Orlando returning so that probably isn’t going to happen.

Captain Jack’s brother (when did he ever mention having a brother and where was he in the last movie when all the pirates faced off?) is also rumored to show up in this movie. From what I’ve heard, it’s either going to be Sacha Baron Cohen or Russell Brand (you know that crazy guy with the biggest white guy fro I’ve ever seen that scared people at the MTV award show lol). Sacha’s played in a movie with Johnny Depp before (he was Pirelli in Sweeney Todd which I still need to see!) but I haven’t really seen anything of either comedian’s work. I do think it would be good to have someone with a sense of humor playing Jack’s brother though 😀 . That’s all for the current rumors though.

Don’t miss The Office episode called “Business Ethics” tonight at 9 on NBC and don’t click here unless you want to read a summary of the plot. Also check out this very cool Nightmare Before Christmas theme for Firefox that I just downloaded today. It’s a very cool theme for Halloween.

Johnny Depp must really like hats….

This is so very disturbing....

This is so very disturbing....

Well he must have to love hats and weird hair since he’s been through a lot of both in his movies. First you have Pirates, in which he has the weird braids and he wears an amazing pirate hat. Then you have Charlie and the Chocolate Factory where he wears the big purple top hat. Even as a cartoon Johnny Depp has an insane batch of emo bangs that constantly poke out in the Corpse Bride. He’s got the weird skunk hair in Sweeney Todd (and he was ya know the demon barber) and finally he’s going to be the Mad Hatter in Tim Burton’s new Alice in Wonderland.

This Alice in Wonderland will be live action with an unknown actress named Mia Wasikowska playing Alice. There’s some pictures here of Alice and she looks like she’s on a boat; which I’m sure has fans freaking out since I’ve heard this part isn’t in the book. I wouldn’t be too worried if I was a fan of the book though, seeing as how Tim Burton is slightly insane an amazing director and Johnny Depp always acts good in his films (yet more proof of their love for each other lol). I’m looking forward to it since it seems like it will be a lot more interesting than the cartoon version. I hope it’s full of a good deal of insanity (let’s just hope there’s no more cross-dressing Johnny Depp) seeing as how you’re adding up both Alice in Wonderland (greatest stoner dream of all time) and Tim Burton. Anyway it’s due to release on March 5, 2010 in the US.

Who thinks Cher is still sexy?

One of the less creepy pictures of her

Ok so according to the British Telegraph newspaper Christopher Nolan wants Cher to play Catwoman as “a vamp in her twilight years”-Telegraph. This is worse than the rumors saying that Angelina Jolie was going to play Catwoman *shudder*. Shame on you Telegraph! Don’t start ridiculous rumors! First of all Cher is 62! Last time I checked Batman wasn’t into cougars and without the whole villain love interest, why bother introducing Catwoman at all. Batman needs someone to love now seeing as how Rachel Dawes isn’t in the picture anymore. He has a hard enough life chasing around crazies wearing masks. If Christopher Nolan picked Cher, I think Christian Bale would quit in protest to having to makeout with an old lady lol 😉 .

Also, any rumors starting now are most likely just that, seeing as how Christopher Nolan hasn’t even signed on to do a third Batman movie (even though I’m betting he will.) People are saying that the shock to this Cher news is similar to the shock of Heath Ledger playing the Joker but I don’t remember that many people whining besides Jack Nicholson (man did he look creepy as the Joker with all that face tape, I saw it on tv the other day). Going back to the whole Cher thing though, who would choose her to be sexy when they’ve had people like Halle Berry play the role. I guess that movie was pretty dorky but I blame that on the fact that the director was too interested in showing Halle Berry in leather to care about plot.

In every Batman series Catwoman has been good at stealing for another thing. If I owned a museum and a 62-year-old lady stole something from me and got away, I’d be pretty ashamed of myself. I guess Cher is a big enough hippy to be an animal rights activist worthy of the Selena Kyle title but without all the other things that make up Catwoman she really has no chance.

There’s also other rumors saying that Johnny Depp is going to play the Riddler. This I agree with. He’s just enough crazy to do that. (He killed people with shaving knives I mean come on! Speaking of which, I still haven’t seen that and I really should.) I really think it would be a good match for him as long as he strays away from the crazy that came with Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Well, I’m guessing whoever plays who in the 3rd Batman movie will probably be good if Christopher Nolan directs it. He doesn’t seem to care too much about what people think of his choices and so far it’s made great movies.

This pictures is still not as creepy as how Cher looks everyday
