And so it is that buoyed by the just-wrapped fourth installment, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Disney is telling cast and crew to gear up for a fifth and sixth installment that will again shoot back-to-back. Six megafranchise movies crammed into just ten years of shooting? Captain Jack Sparrow just made the MGM-hobbled James Bond look like a slacker. [HitFix]
