Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley, who have appeared in all of the Pirates movies, will not return for the next installment.

The news was confirmed by Johnny Depp over the weekend at the Alice in Wonderland press event.

So with Keira and Orlando out, who's in? Rumors have it that in addition to Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz and a returning Geoffrey Rush as Barbossa will round out the cast.

Will it be Jack Sparrow overload? We'll have to wait and see.

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, set to be released next year, is currently in pre-production. The film will be directed by Rob Marshall.
