Producer Jerry Bruckheimer has given an update on the status of the latest film installments of Pirates of the Caribbean and National Treasure as well as the upcoming version of The Lone Ranger:

“We’ve sat with the writers and we’re working up the story and plotlines right now [for Pirates 4 and National Treasure 3]. They’re in the process of finishing The Lone Ranger so they’re working on both of those simultaneously, same set of writers, Ted Elliot and Terry Rossio, who did all three Pirates and worked on National Treasure 2. I think they’re pushing towards 2012.”

Despite seeming like a long time, Bruckheimer may have no other option to wait due to Pirates director, Gore Verbinski, to finish two of his productions that are already in production.

It is set for release in 2010.

, Verbinski’s second film, is an animated film in which a household pet goes on a journey of self-discovery. Its release date is set for 2011 and also stars Pirates actor Johnny Depp.
