Rumors have been floating around for some time, but word is Disney has gone ahead and decided to shoot the next edition of one of the biggest movie franchises going in 3D. There's some dispute over whether or not the folks in mouse ears plan to go Avatar-style for all or just some of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and convert the rest, but with a projected release date of May 20, 2011, we should know more very soon. 2D, 3D or otherwise with Johnny Depp is back as Captain Jack Sparrow, we're figuring it'll do ok at the box office.
