Powers Novel Optioned for New Pirates of the Carribean Movie

posted @ 9/21/2009 03:47:00 PM PT 

Tim Powers has confirmed earlier rumors with the following news: "I can now say that Disney optioned On Stranger Tides and will use elements of the book in the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie. I can also say that I did not ever specify that Serena and I get parts in the movie or have dinner with Johnny Depp! (Not that we'd mind.)"

The fit is an obvious one, as On Stranger Tides is about a pirate named Jack who goes in search of the Fountain of Youth. This fourth installment will be titled Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and will be released in the summer of 2011.
