Yo ho, yo ho: it's a 'Pirate''s life for Penelope Cruz.

That's the latest word from The Hollywood Reporter, anyway, which is reporting that the acclaimed Spanish actress is currently in negotiations with Disney to co-star in 'Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.'

That top secret project, of course, is the fourth entry in the wildly popular -- and equally profitable -- 'Pirates of the Caribbean' franchise, which has earned over $2.7 billion worldwide since the first installment set sail back in 2003. But while Johnny Depp is known to be on board for the latest go round, other 'Pirates' stars, including swashbuckling love interest and rival Keira Knightley, have declined to the chance to return, leaving the door open for others to strap on the eye patch.
