The latest from Hollywood is that a Pirates of The Caribbean 4 is being made (with Johnny Depp helming). This isn’t necessarily a bad thing as I feel I need to be reimbursed with at least two and a half hours entertainment after suffering the awfulness that was “At Worlds End”.

Along with this Disney news is the latest from . They have greenlit an I Am Legend . I don’t see how this can be as entertaining as the first. I Am Legend admittedly made but how much can you squeeze an already dry lemon? For me, both of these are unwanted. What are your thoughts?

UPDATE: Oh yes, another unwanted film has been announced already in the form of Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (originally starring Steve Martin and Michael Caine). When will this madness stop?
