: I swear to god, Disney is making "Pirates of the Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides".
For those who aren't pathetic Tim Powers fangirls, On Stranger Tides
is a totally awesome fantasy novel. It's got swashbuckling period zombie Caribbean pirates but is rather
more intelligent and authentic than the movies.
I'm not 100% sure if it's confirmed that the movie is drawing on the book.
When he came to Swancon Tim Powers said when he first saw POTC he felt he'd been ripped off..then remembered how many times he'd gone on the original ride. So it goes full circle! Clearly the next film will be POTC 5: Monkey Island (the game was influenced by both the ride and the book)
I was pondering what other Cheesey Blockbuster Movie + Favourite Author combinations might happen next and thus came up with "Star Trek 2: Shards of Honour
". Of course that would mean having the plot revolve around a woman
. Still, imagine it: Winona Kirk finds herself stuck on a deserted planet, and encounters a Romulan scout.... (I've heard that it started as fanfic about a Federation officer and Klingon, but I think Romulans suit the reboot 'verse more)
EDIT: Some more I thought of:
Event Horizon 2: Schild's Ladder
James Bond: The Atrocity Archives
Highlander: Wild Seed
The Mummy: The Anubis Gates
Star Trek: Mirror Dance
..oh wait that was Nemesis
I feel like I should be able to think of something for Mission:Impossible and Indiana Jones but nothing is coming to mind.
