The fact that Disney is already eyeing a "Pirates 5" and "Pirates 6" before "On Stranger Tides" has even set sail in theaters is no secret.

Johnny Depp remained cagey on appearing again as Captain Jack Sparrow when asked not too long ago, and with the script now delivered, he's sticking to that story for now.

Sundance 2011 seemed to be the year of the woman. Brit Marling walked away with a double whammy of attention for "Another Earth" and "Sound of My Voice" while Elizabeth Olsen earned breakout sensation status for her turn in "Martha Marcy May Marlene," and for most of us getting our first look now, it seems pretty clear why.

He's already looking ahead to 2012 where he and Stephen Daldry will be the creative bosses of the 2012 Olympics in London. But before he gets to that, he's going to crank out another film.
