Blackbeard in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides? We’ll see…

Posted on 14 September 2009 by Quaid

Last week is was revealed that the sub-title of the new Pirates of the Caribbean film would be On Stranger Tides. Always looking for a scoop, the guys over at Latinoreview dug further.

OnStrangerTidesSeems a book by the same name was released in 1988 (written by Tim Powers) and, believe it or not, it involved pirates.  When asked about this, the man’s literary agent said “…I can tell you it’s not a coincidence.”

What’s more, it seems the novel’s main character gets somehow intwined with Blackbeard in the novel…could Captain Jack Sparrow be facing off against the most famous of Pirates?   Time will tell.

Here is the full plot synopsis via Amazon:

“Puppeteer John Chandagnac, bound for Jamaica to recover stolen money from his uncle, becomes Jack Shandy after pirates attack his ship and force him to join their crew. Shandy’s struggle to accept his new life grounds the story for readers, even as Blackbeard and vodun magicians whisk everyone away to dreamlike lands where the Fountain of Youth itself awaits. The chaotic sea battles sing, though at times key events happen so quickly that they get lost in the shuffle as Jack tries to comprehend where he’s going and what’s at stake.

So, after facing death in At World’s End, Jack vows to continue escaping death and so goes on a search for the Fountain of Youth?  I’m sold.
