Roenberg may turn to actress Penelope Cruz - who starred as Angelica Teach in 2011's 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides' - after the paired worked with her and Salma Hayek for their debut movie 'Bandidas'.

Filming is scheduled to begin later this year or early January 2014 for a July 10th, 2015 release.

Great franchise but I am one JD fan who is sick to death of pirates. It grew old after the second film.
