Despite the recent news that Disney exec Dick Cook was leaving the company, one of our favorite pirates has revealed he's ready to get back to work. Movies Blog recently spoke to actor Geoffrey Rush who revealed he will reprise his role as Captain Barbosa for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides for a Spring 2010 shoot.

"They're waiting for the screenplay writers to put together something that's beyond the trilogy, take it off into a new direction so that it's fresh and hopefully really interesting for an audience, that they're not going to just sausage-machine out something else, which wouldn't be so good."
