Pirates of the Caribbean" co-writer Terry Rossio denied many of the rumors currently circling the fourth film in the series.
On his blog, he recently posted this: "For the record, none of the recent Pirates 4 rumors have any truth, including the so-called record 50 million dollar payday for Depp. Some pretty funny stuff, though. Sacha Cohen Tim Burton ? Studios are way too protective of their franchises for that sort of thing."
That said...the tabby fodder seems to show no signs of stopping anytime soon
Responding to one more such rumor High School Musical 3: Senior Year star Zac Efron told MTV News that he has never been approached for a role in the next sequel, rumored to be the son of Will and Elizabeth.
“No one has talked to me about it," Efron says. “I didn’t even know [about it].”
Wouldn't Efron be a bit too old to play the son of characters who are just about 10 years older? Still it could be done I suppose...And I'm sure Disney wouldn't mind if Efron stuck around the studio after "School"
He added “...cross your fingers for me guys!”
