Last night Coming Soon was on the set of The Sorceror’s Apprentice in New York City (a set where Nic Cage most definitely did not hire a voodoo priestess!) and they talked to superproducer Jerry Bruckheimer, who revealed that we can expect to see Pirates of the Caribbean 4 before we see The Lone Ranger.

This would be surprising to those who thought The Lone Ranger was way out ahead of the directorless Pirates; after all, isn’t Mike Newell signed on to that? Bruckheimer flat out denies those rumors. Interesting.

Meanwhile, Bruckheimer says that Disney is really hot to get back to the Pirates franchise, and that Terry Rossio and Ted Elliot are hard at work creating a slick, meaningless script.
