It's a perfect match since the book clearly influenced the movies as much as the ride did. Even the Monkey Island creator said he was more inspired by "On Stranger Tides" than POTC the ride. If they stick close to the book, then it should be a great movie. And I'm hopeful for LEGO tie-in sets. I can't imagine with the licensing agreement that LEGO would sit back and allow Disney to give the merchandising to a competitor. I'm sure there are some exclusion clauses in the contract.
Meanwhile, my advice: If you're a pirates fan and haven't read the book, beg, borrow, or steal it.

That didn't stop TLG froms making Dinsey Cars sets
I can't wait for this film though. I just saw the trilogy of previous films on DVD so I'm stoked for more rum-induced adventure

THe LEGO line is a stretch, but we can always hope. I wonder the conflit between the regular pirates and the character specific Pirates. I kind of see LEGO having issues doing that.
Then again, there is Space and Star Wars. Hmmm

Maybe now with the 2 main villians gone (Davy Jones and Beckett) they may introduce Jolly Roger to the film series - while i havent played the PotC Online game from what i know of it Jolly Roger does command skeletal pirates does he not? (not to mention that he is one)

To the people that think Hollywood should of stopped at the third movie, Hollywood will never stop while they can still make money out of a franchise (E.G high school muscial)

If you can fin out a way to make a perfect replica of that in Lego, I would certainly buy it. But Lego do not make 2 Decker ships.
Sorry, don't buy that the Dutchman is to complicated for lego to do. We've seen some stellar work from them in terms of Starwars ships and vehicles. In both mini fig and USC sets. The Dutchman as well as the pearl are very doable without the need of "purposely built pieces". It can be done.
It also doesn't need to be two decks. It doesn't have to be exact to scale. Just incorporate the details that make it recognizable as the Flying Dutchman.
If at first you don't succeed,........ Then skydiving is not for you!
