It is quite appropriate that we read that a fourth Pirates Of The Caribbean film has been approved two days after International Talk Like A Pirate Day. Based on the Tim Powers book On Stranger Tides, the film's title was announced as Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and is scheduled to be released in Summer 2011.

From release/information:

Disney has finally announced the fourth installment of "Pirates Of The Caribbean". Film number-four will be titled "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" and it will be released in the Summer of 2011.

The company made the announcement with Johnny Depp at the D23 Expo. Johnny Depp, who plays Captain Jack Sparrow, sailed onstage in a pirate ship. He staggered around the stage before hugging Walt Disney Studios chairman Dick Cook, who told the audience of 5,000 fans about the next instalment.

Guys over at Cinematical have some interesting information. Actually, there is a novel called "On Stranger Tides" about pirates written by Tim Powers.

"On Stranger Tides" is a fantasy book that won the Locus Award for Best Fantasy Novel in 1988 and was also nominated for The World Fantasy award.

In the book, originally published in 1988, the main character is also named Jack (Shandy) who tries to find the Fountain of Youth which was rumored title of the fourth installment.
