New Pirates film being made in 3D

Pirates of the Caribbean 3

The next Pirates of the Caribbean film will be made in 3D.

US entertainment magazine Variety says the movie, called On Stranger Tides, will be shot entirely in 3D, instead of being converted afterwards.

Disney is the company in charge. They had big success with recent 3D flick Alice in Wonderland. It smashed UK opening weekend records in March.

Johnny Depp will return as Captain Jack Sparrow in the new adventure, which is due out in May 2011.
