Playing pirate just isn't fun anymore

Playing pirate just isn't fun anymore

The first question that comes to mind is, "Why in the world would they make another Pirates movie?" The first one was fun, the second one too long, and the third one too confusing for a film that was based on a theme park ride. The franchise seemed to wrap itself up nicely, so why would they make another one?

The answer is money. The studio knows that people will go see it. I read that Johnny Depp was paid $55 million to resume the role of Captain Jack Sparrow, which brings me to two conclusions: either he had no interest in playing the role again and that was that magical number of zeros it took, or he is such a smart man that he knows how much money a fourth "Pirates of the Caribbean" film would make and that the studio knew it would sink without him manning the wheel.

PRICECREW ready for Big-Time

PRICECREW ready for Big-Time

PRICECREW is made up of four brothers from Jacksonville, Arkansas. Philip-24, Zachary-21, Jacob-15 and Caleb-14; Caleb was barely two years old at that first performance but he still knew the right way to move. The crew has been singing and dancing ever since. There is something special going on when four brothers from Arkansas can sing, dance and put on a show the way PRICECREW can.

Throughout the past few years the brothers have grown to understand it takes hard work and dedication to accomplish what their dreams hold. They have played countless venues and are always looking for ways to improve their act, as well as pushing themselves to make the best music they possibly can.

Over the years they have performed at the local festivals and venues, including Riverfest and Magic Springs' Summer Concert Series, gaining popularity throughout Central Arkansas.
