[14.10.2005] CS! meldet... SPOILER !!!
Keira Knightley spilled the beans to MTV on a new character in one of the two "Pirates of the Caribbean" sequels.
"I had my first day back [recently], because we had a little bit of a break over the summer. My first day back was being dragged across the deck by an invisible giant squid, invisible because it's being put in by CGI afterwards," Knightley giggled.
"So I just spent the entire time pretending that it was tentacles everywhere, and the director was running around going, 'I'm a tentacle, I'm a tentacle.' It takes a little bit of an imagination; I have no idea what it's going to look like, but hopefully it'll be cool."
Meanwhile, the films' director Gore Verbinski told iF Magazine that they are "a quarter of the way through the third one and three quarters of the way through the second one. It's madness."
"We actually have a pretty good second script and the third script is still on the operating table," he added. "And we're in triage constantly, everyday. I don't recommend making two movies at once. I think that we're going to get there, but it's just madness...There's a lot of fun and I think that the second movie is strong and clever and has a lot going on. The third movie we're still working on."
Verbinski also commented on the rumor that the production is still trying to get Keith Richards to play Captain Jack Sparrow's (Johnny Depp) dad in the sequels. "We hope so," he says. "We're trying to work out his dates. We all want it to work, but it's his tour dates and his lawyers."

Johnny Depp, star of the upcoming sequel film Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, told SCI FI Wire that the much-hoped for cameo by Rolling Stones star Keith Richards may not happen after all. Richards was supposed to play the father of Depp's pirate character, Captain Jack Sparrow; Depp has famously said he modeled his Oscar-nominated performance as Sparrow in part on the legendary rocker.
Depp said in an interview that Richards has met with the filmmakers, but nothing has been shot. "No, it's sort of not totally official yet," Depp said at the Toronto International Film Festival, where he's attending the debut of director Tim Burton's Corpse Bride. "It might be. Everyone is trying. He's got a little tour to do," he added, referring to the Rolling Stones' current world tour.
Depp is in the middle of filming the second and third parts of the Pirates of the Caribbean series in the Bahamas. The sequels will be directed by Gore Verbinski, who helmed the first blockbuster installment, The Curse of the Black Pearl. The first sequel, Dead Man's Chest, is scheduled for 2006; the third movie doesn't have a name yet or a complete script.
Richards was quoted as saying he spent a great afternoon with Depp trying on costumes, but has turned them down for the moment. He added: "The idea of working for Disney gives me the shivers in the first place."

Reggie Lee (The Fast and the Furious) has landed a supporting lead [...]
Lee filmed some initial scenes with Depp in April while both sequels were filming concurrently on St. Vincent in the Caribbean. He resumes filming in late August in Los Angeles and the Bahamas through 2006. Pirates of the Caribbean 3 is due in theatres in 2007.
Lee's character is involved in several of the film's stunt sequences for which he will undergo 'pirate training' in preparation. He looks forward to the physical demands of the role, which will be no problem for the avid athlete.

[12.07.2005] Contact Music meldet...
ROLLING STONE KEITH RICHARDS will star as Captain Jack Sparrow's father in one of the two upcoming PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN sequels, co-star BILL NIGHY has confirmed.
JOHNNY DEPP, who plays Captain Sparrow, has been trying to persuade Richards to make a cameo for months, after revealing his character was based on the guitarist.
It was thought The Rolling Stones tour schedule stood in the way, but Depp was confident - earlier this month (JUL05) he said, "It's looking very good."
And Nighy - who plays DAVEY JONES in PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN'S CHEST - is happy to end the speculation.
The British actor says, "I can confirm, Keith Richards will appear in Pirates of the Caribbean 2 or 3. I'm not sure which one, because they are being filmed back to back."

[07.07.2005] Moviehole meldet...
The rumour-machine's been speaking his casting for months, but today, the trade's caught up and confirmed it. Chow Yun-Fat will indeed be part of the "Pirates of the Caribbean 3" cast.
According to Variety, the "Bulletproof Monk" star will play Captain Sao Feng, a notorious pirate who plays a major role in the second of two "Pirates" sequels - both filming back to back.
Yun-Fat will be seen in his pirate garb in Summer 2007.

[29.06.2005] sprach mit Johnny Depp...
[...] Are you shooting the films back to back?
JD: As much as we can, we are doing two, and every now and then, you may have to slot something in from "Pirates 3", but the majority of what we have done so far have been 2 and then we will start moving into 3 after the hiatus. It's been great fun so far.
Why did you choose to revisit the role of Captain Jack?
JD: For me, there was only reason and one reason only, it was Captain Jack. It was selfishly to have the opportunity to play Captain Jack again. Some people can look at it and say, "Depp sold out." I don't believe that I have. It certainly wasn't my attention to sell out but I wanted to play again because I think he's so much fun to play and I think there is so much more to explore with that character that I would keep going. If they wanted me to do "Pirate 7", why not?
What will we see this time around?
JD: In "Pirates 2 & 3", you will get to see a couple of new layers to Captain Jack. You will get to see him in new situations; situations that he is unable to talk his way out of. There's a lot of fun stuff.
Will Keith Richards be in the film?
JD: It's looking very good. I've talk to Keith about it and he's been super sweet and keen to do it and it's looking very good. We are just hoping that we can work out the dates with the Stones tour and everything but if that happens, you talk about a dream come true. Get to be a pirate with Keith Richards? Does it get better than that?

[...] "They've come up with something bigger and better for the next two movies," Bloom told Radio 1. "They had to top the skeletal pirate thing and I think they've really managed it, haven't they?"
He continued: "There's this sequence with a Kracken - it's a big squid - and some other things...oh, was that too much information?!"
Co-star Keira Knightley added: "I have a sword fight with two swords, which has been the biggest challenge, but also the thing that I'm most excited about because it's fantastic. I was well impressed!" [...]

[03.05.2005] Bei Empire Online gibt es ein Interview mit Orlando Bloom...

[27.04.2005] Wie CS! meldet, entwickelt Disney Online u.a. ein "Pirates of the Caribbean" Online-Spiel (MMORG)...
[...] Fans of the movies and theme park attraction will be able to live their own unfolding pirate adventure through the game, including searching for lost treasures and battling numerous enemies on land and at sea." [...]
The game is being designed by the Walt Disney Internet Group's acclaimed VR Studio as a world of high seas action and adventure where players will personalize their own pirate character and organize with other players to form a pirate crew. Players will then embark on swashbuckling missions to battle both each other and the evil, undead pirates of the high seas in an effort to become the Caribbean's most legendary pirate. Access to the game will be available directly online and players will pay a subscription fee for the service. An information site for the game has been launched at offering a registration service to sign up to receive future game updates and launch information.
Buena Vista Games (BVG), the videogame arm of The Walt Disney Company, will release additional titles based on Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest for the PSP(TM) portable entertainment system and Nintendo DS(TM) in conjunction with the movie launch.

[22.04.2005] Bei Empire Online gibt es ein Interview mit Bill Nighy... SPOILER !!!
[...] he was keen to elaborate on his appearance as Davy Jones - he of Davy Jones' Locker fame - in the eagerly-awaited sequels, Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, and the third in the series, Pirates Of The Caribbean 3: Insert Subtitle Here. Jokingly referring to himself and Stellan Skarsgard - who plays Bootstrap Bill Turner, the father of Orlando Bloom's Will Turner - as "the new boys", Nighy confirmed that his Jones will be very much the villain of the piece.
"I am a very, very, very, very bad man and I am there to make people suffer in all new ways, in ways that you won't have seen before," he smiled. And while he wouldn't clarify in which horrendous ways Jones would wreak this vile havoc, for fear of alerting producer Jerry Bruckheimer's crack spoiler-preventing SWAT team, he did admit that, "I have a boat and I have a crew, and they are really evil buggers."
More interestingly, though, is Nighy's revelation that although he'll be playing the part of Jones with - presumably - his usual blend of suave insouciance and regal mystery, he'll have a little help from his friends at ILM. "I'm so computer generated that you might have trouble spotting me. You'll know it's me, but you might have to check the credits afterwards," he laughed. "But they're cracking stories, they're great stories. If you liked the first one, you'll love this." [...]

[09.04.2005] DH sprach mit Orlando Bloom über die Sequels...
[...] they began shooting about nearly four weeks ago in the Caribbean.
Bloom, looking tanned and with the same goatee and a slightly longer hairstyle than the last "Pirates" movie, confirmed that shooting will run throughout the rest of the year with filming to move to Los Angeles once the Caribbean shoot is up. After that he's going back to London for some much needed R&R.
Oddly enough despite estimations, he confirmed that they seem to be shooting the two films separately and he hasn't read the third film's script as yet. The Caribbean shoot is mostly for the second and some of the third film, most of the third will be done in Los Angeles. The actor put on about 15-20 pounds of muscle for "Kingdom of Heaven" but looks to have dropped much of that extra mass for "Pirates."
He reprises his role of Will Turner in the sequel and like the first film "Will is the straight man who moves the story forward and he continues that. He becomes more of a pirate, but piracy is not in his blood in the same way it is for Jack Sparrow" says Bloom.
But the character is going to develop it sounds like - "there are plans to darken Will up a little, and make him a little more questionable which will then resolve themselves".
As for the Keith Richards rumours - "I've heard the rumours as well as you. I think if he makes an appearance it will probably be in the third movie and we'll see what happens".

[01.04.2005] Empire Online sprach mit Jack Davenport über die Sequels...
[...] "Do you honestly think I can tell you what the plot of it is?" says Jack Davenport, incredulously. " I just can't tell you. All I can tell you is that I'm in them. I'd be strung up and shot if I tell you anything." [...]
"I'm filming on Pirates until January of next year. There's a little break between shooting on the two films, so that the poor bastards who have to work every day, i.e. the crew, can catch their breath slightly, because it's a pretty massive operation. The first one made so much money that the number crunchers obviously decided to turn it into a franchise. We're kind of lucky to be along for the ride really."
We did manage to persuade Davenport to confirm that he returns as the same character - not, you know, a robot double or a heavily prostheticised Scottish nanny or anything. "I'm not a ghost or anything, I'm the same person. Maybe a bit of cross-dressing - no, I'm kidding."
Well, we have at least learned that much. Fans of the film (and really, who isn't?) may remember that Norrington was last seen offering Cap'n Jack Sparrow, Will Turner and ex-fiancee Elizabeth Swann a headstart, but promised to come after them with the entire British Caribbean fleet behind him soon enough. While Jack's lips may have remained as tightly sealed as a oyster clamped in irons in the dank brig of a pirate ship, we don't think we're going out on too much of a limb to suggest that he might be in pursuit of our heroes over the next two films.
One thing's for sure - Davenport seems pretty pleased to be back. "Pirates of the Caribbean - it struck me that it was at least going to be a complete laugh doing it. It was, and then it turned into a juggernaut. Of course we buckle our swashes, but I think there were a few things that were crucial in terms of it working. One obviously is humour, and I think, unlike many blockbusters, we also have a plot, which helps. A ridiculous plot, but, you know, it's a pirate film for chrissakes. I think a lot of that is down to the writers, Ted Elliot and Terry Rossio, who are very good at taking fairly tired genres and reinvigorating them but also giving a heart to the story. They're very smart guys, they're lovely men - and they're back for the sequels." [...]

Carib Chief Charles Williams said talks with Disney's producers revealed there was "a strong element of cannibalism in the script which cannot be removed".
The Caribbean island's government said Disney planned to film in Dominica.
The Caribs have long denied their ancestors practised cannibalism. Disney was unavailable for comment.
"Our ancestors stood up against early European conquerors and because they stood up...we were labelled savages and cannibals up to today," said Mr Williams.
"This cannot be perpetuated in movies." [...]
Mr Williams said he had received support from indigenous groups around the world in his efforts to have cannibalism references removed from the film. [...]

[04.02.2005] The Orlando Bloom Files hat ein paar Infos zum Plot...
[...] Here is some new plot info on POTC 2 from a Walt Disney investor conference studio presentation. [...]
"Now, for the big guns... literally. One of our biggest franchises to date is "Pirates of the Caribbean." This film surpassed even our greatest expectations. Worldwide, it made more than $650 million at the box-office and sold more than 30 million DVD and VHS units. In total, "Pirates" has already generated more than $1.2 billion in total revenues in the first 19 months since opening. And now we have 2 more "Pirates" adventures in the works, both of which are huge company-wide priorities. Coming summer of 2006 and summer 2007 are the much-anticipated "Pirates of the Caribbean 2" and "3". And since you're a special audience, I think we can do better than that. We haven't announced this yet, and you're the first audience outside the company to hear the title of the latest installment of this fantastic saga: "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest". [...]
This time around, Johnny returns as Captain Jack Sparrow and is caught in yet another tangled web of supernatural intrigue. It turns out, Captain Jack owes a blood debt to the legendary Davey Jones, ruler of the ocean depths and captain of the ghostly Flying Dutchman. If Jack can't figure a crafty way out of this one, he'll be cursed to an afterlife of eternal servitude and damnation. And as if that weren't enough, Captain Jack's problems throw a huge wrench into the wedding plans of the blissful Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann, who quickly find themselves thrust into Jack's misadventures. [...]

[...] her swordplay will be back in Pirates of the Caribbean 2 and 3, buit beyond that, she has no idea, if the two films will be shot simultaneously, or even what they're about. She has yet to read a script, "but all I know is we're supposed to be filming in March." [...]

[01.02.2005] Bei CS! gibt es einen Rundumschlag in Sachen Sequels...
Taggart star Alex Norton (The Count of Monte Cristo) has joined the "Pirates of the Caribbean" sequels cast, reports the Daily Record. The 55-year-old actor will play Edinburgh sea captain Sam Bellamy. "I've only just heard that I got the part of Captain Bellamy. I'm really excited," said Norton, "I start filming in Los Angeles next month. We then head out to the Caribbean island of St Vincent in June and July."
Stuntman Bobby Waldron will also have a role in the second and third films. The Roxbury Register says it was his work as Orlando Bloom's personal fitness trainer which led to his upcoming roles. "I'm not sure what my part will be, but I just know that I'm working on it and that's enough for me," said Waldron.
Meanwhile, Chow Yun-Fat has reportedly been staying away from the press in an attempt to keep his image for his role in the upcoming "Pirates of the Caribbean" films a secret. However, he was caught earlier this month sporting a thick mustache and a goatee. Chow's wife said last month that the actor will be playing the famous 19th century Chinese pirate Cheung Po Tsai.
Johnny Depp also told USA Today after the Golden Globes on January 17th that "tomorrow, I start growing out my Pirates beard."
Pirates of the Caribbean 2 is scheduled for a July 7, 2006 release, while the third film has not yet received a date.

Stellan Skarsgard and Naomie Harris are boarding Walt Disney Pictures' back-to-back sequels to "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl." The sequels reunite the main players in the 2003 blockbuster: Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley star, Gore Verbinski directs, Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio write and Jerry Bruckheimer produces. In the new films, Skarsgard will play Bloom's long-lost father, and Harris will play a gypsy queen. Disney's Brigham Taylor is overseeing. "Pirates 2" is scheduled for a summer 2006 release. Shooting is to start in early March in Los Angeles and the Caribbean. "Pirates 2" reunites Skarsgard with Bruckheimer; the actor appeared in last year's "King Arthur," which Bruckheimer produced. ICM-repped Skarsgard's recent credits include "Exorcist: The Beginning" and "Dogville." Harris might be best known stateside for starring in the horror film "28 Days Later." She also appeared in "After the Sunset" as well as British television's adaptation of Zadie Smith's novel "White Teeth." Harris is repped by CAA.

[27.01.2005] CS! meldet...
Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgård (Ronin, Amistad, Exorcist: The Beginning, King Arthur) has landed the role as Orlando Bloom's father 'Bootstraps' Turner in the "Pirates of the Caribbean" sequels slated to start shooting this year.
According to the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet, Skarsgård starts working on the project in February and will finish in December.
"We are going to shoot around the Los Angeles area as well as in the Bahamas and the West Indies," says Skarsgård. "I'm playing the old pirate 'Bootstraps' Turner... it should be fun, I enjoyed the first one."
Producer Jerry Bruckheimer recently said he was also negotiating with Geoffrey Rush to return as Barbossa in a third "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie. [...]

[20.01.2005] DH sprach mit Geoffrey "Captain Barbossa" Rush...
[...] while both Pirates sequels are not a sure thing for the Oscar winning actor, he is keeping himself available.
"It is not an official announcement, but at the moment I am on hold until there is a date somewhere late January where I think they are going to role out the schedule and the scripts. cause They have got a big job ahead of them, as they are going to shoot two and three together for logistical reasons and they are certainly determined not to make it a sausage machine project. It seems they are very keen on expanding the possibility of what Barbossa and Jack Sparrow and all the characters get involved in, and I think they are going to take into some quite fantastical and surprisingly new directions," says Rush, excitedly. [...]

According to a picture taken by a Hong Kong tabloid Sudden Weekly, Chow Yun-Fat is, currently in Hong Kong, growing beard for his role, a Chinese pirate leader. Reported he was asked to get more muscular and he did not need to loss weight.
