Next installment of Pirates of the Caribbean to be filmed exclusively in 3D.Next installment of Pirates of the Caribbean to be filmed exclusively in 3D.

Filming in 3D offers up obvious some advantages over adding useless effects in post - though you may up seeing a bevy of Avatar-like effects (not necessarily a bad thing). POTC4 will be swash-buckling into theaters May 2011.

The next time you happen to witness the writing of a ticket on a vehicle you happen to own and find yourself agitated with coffee in hand - remember this little article.
