    'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' Script Complete But Johnny Depp Isn't Ready To Sell Out Again Just Yet

    The fact that Disney is already eyeing a "Pirates 5" and "Pirates 6" before "On Stranger Tides" has even set sail in theaters is no secret. Initial plans had the studio thinking about shooting two more sequels back-to-back, while early in the new year it was revealed that Terry Rossio had indeed been hired to pen another film, but without his longtime partner Ted Elliott. Johnny Depp remained cagey on appearing again as Captain Jack Sparrow when asked not too long ago, and with the script now delivered, he's sticking to that story for now.

    Zoe Kravitz Talks "Mad Max" Reboot (Yes, It's Coming)

    "I heard the other day that we should be good to go in mid-January, we're supposed to go to Australia to start. I guess there's a point where you say, 'yeah, yeah, yeah,'... But I hope it gets made. They're saying it is. I've had this role now for over a year and they've done a great job at staying in contact and reassuring me that the film is going to happen. They've put together such a cool cast and I know they've started building a lot of the vehicles and cameras and they've really been in pre-production for such a long time, so I think it'll happen... There's a group of five women being taken from one place to another place, and I'm one of those women... So they call us the five wives. There are five women who are five wives. No, I'm not playing all five wives... I really hope it happens, because George is amazing and Tom Hardy is too. I love the film. And I think the best time to make it is probably right now. George wants to push the limits with the stunts, make it all really real. Because even by today's standards, a lot of the stunts from the original 'Mad Max' are very impressive… so what we'll do now, that'll be pretty mind-blowing."

    Janet Jackson Will Play Cannes AmFAR Cinema Against AIDS Fundraiser

    For those of you wondering what Harvey Weinstein had up his sleeve for the annual AmFAR Cinema Against Aids fundraiser held on the last Thursday of Cannes, Roger Friedman has the scoop:Janet Jackson has been signed up as the entertainment, which should make the event hotter than ever. Now the big question is whether or not Sharon Stone will be back after a year off from conducting the famed live auction. There are those who love Sharon’s style and some who don’t. But AmFAR suffers a little without Stone’s presence.(Last year, the AmFAR people were very upset when I reported that Sharon wasn’t coming. She had a film to shoot in Eastern Europe.)
