POTC Screenwriter Discusses Rumor of 4th Film
From moviehole.net:Online rumors say this is the final 'Pirates' movie - but I'm sure Disney has other plans. What do you think? Any more 'Pirates' movies left in you?
Terry: It's like the fourth Indiana Jones picture - there are forces in play to make it happen, and forces in play to make it not happen. I think we will try to write a screenplay. I can't say if we'll be able to solve the challenge of making a good fourth film, or if our screenplay will be enough to get a film made.

Filming is currently taking place at Pohauku Mauliuli Beach (Make Horse), with its towering cliff as a backdrop. The cast- including Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightly - are staying at Paniolo Hale. A lighting technician described the filming taking place as a "big love scene" between their characters- Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann. Although crew members spent several days on the beach constructing the set, the major Hollywood celebrities flew in the morning of Tuesday, January 9. As the sun set on Tuesday January 9, a group of about fifty individuals gathered at the 10th hole of the Kaluakoi Golf Course. To their delight, Orlando Bloom crossed the course while driving a golf cart, clad in a maroon pirate shirt and a green cap. "It was so romantic- he blew me a kiss!" said Kelly Forsberg after Bloom passed by.
