Gore Doesn't Have A Clue About Another Pirates Film...


Gore Verbinski is one director in demand...

He's attached to four or five different projects. None of which are ready to go and unfortunately, one of them is NOT Pirates of the Caribbean 4. I hope Disney does try and make it so that he can do the sequel. I think since he was the one in charge of the first trilogy, he should be in charge of the second. Ooops, I mean film not trilogy.

Ehem...

But now comes word that Gore will direct a film version of "Clue" the classic board game(not the Disney version, btw). Not that the first film was such a huge blockbuster, but that doesn't stop a studio from trying. There are no writers attached to the project so it doesn't mean it's a go and could take as much time as the "Bioshock" project that he's been connected to for some time. Here's hoping Disney can come to an agreement between Bruckheimer and Depp and some very busy screenwriters. I'd like to see the Mouse get the Pirates filmed by Gore.

Verbinski, that is...

Clue didn't work in the 80's. I remember there were like 4 different endings and each theater had a different ending. It was a marketing gimmick to get people to see it multiple times that failed. The studios need to get a clue.

I'm not sure Gore is the best choice for the fourth film. The first two films in the original trilogy were fine, but the third...what a freaking incomprehensible mess!!! Johnny Depp's charm and the great visuals salvaged that film somewhat, but it was still truly awful in parts (the Ten Foot Ticked-Off Goddess and the death of the bad guy made me squirm in my seat with embarrassment). Perhaps some new blood would be best to truly revive a great franchise.

Seems the only problem that people had with the last film, was the loose plot threads they left for the next films. Heard the same complaints about the second one even when everyone KNEW there was going to be a third. Seems people easily forget what those loose threads are intended to do.

I liked Clue. Wasn't a blockbuster, but I don't think it was intended to be, and neither with this one.
