Penelope Cruz to Star Alongside Johnny Depp in Latest Pirates Installment

Penelope Cruz sure has a reason to celebrate these days, and I’m not just talking because she’s one of the most gorgeous women I’ve ever seen — Cruz gets to reprise a side-by-side role starring with Johnny Depp in the latest edition of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. Reps for both Cruz and the Pirates franchise have finally confirmed that the actress will take a lead in the upcoming movie.

The flick goes by title Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and is slated to hit theaters sometime in 2011. According to the film’s IMDB, the only returning characters will be Depp and Geoffrey Rush, who plays Barbosa. Reps for Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley have confirmed that neither will return for the fourth Pirates edition.

Naturally, Cruz will be a minor love interest for Depp’s character, Jack Sparrow, and I really couldn’t be more pleased. If these two are anything like the way they presented themselves in Blow, we’re going to have a hard time concentrating on the movie’s plot — the chemistry between two of the hottest people in Hollywood, steaming up the Caribbean will be enough of a distraction itself.

I’ve always been a fan of Penelope Cruz and her acting and philanthropic ways, even if she did date that other, psycho “Cruise” and I wish her luck in her latest cinema endeavor.

  • What is Penelope Cruz’s appeal? Sorry Sarah but she is not attractive and quite frankly that accent is so hard to take. To be drawn and quartered in to a theater with Dolby sound to hear her? No thanks. Let’s face it, she still has Cruis taint on her. Gross. :-(
    I believe that Mercy is correct, in that both Depp and Bloom have backed out of the next installment.

  • OMG! i hate her so much like actress!.. and she will complete ruin this movie…she’s old and cannot ever replace the Elizabeth of Keira ….i hate rob stupid marshall to do us this …

  • Sounds like a breath of fresh air to me. Penelope’s hot, Johnny’s hot – they were the only reason Blow was watchable, especially because of that one seriously sexy (and way too short) sex scene.

  • she’s old!,,, and all her characters do the same ….Keira rocks as Elizabeth Swann Rob Marshall is an idiot! she will ruin the trilogy and the fans of pirates won’t see it ….they will be not sex it suposse that Jack jus fell for one women in his entire life…and that woman was Lizzie he can be again in love…with another ….shit director

  • Just to clarify, they will be steaming up the Pacific… they are taping here in Hawaii for “On Stranger Tides”.

    On another note, I’m so stoked!
