Pirates of the Caribbean sequels galore? (NEWS)
According to Pirates of the Caribbean fansite, Keep to the Code, China Daily Online has published a report that a further three films - yes, THREE more films to follow after the forthcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End (due May 25th 2007) are currently being discussed by Disney executives. Furthermore, contracts are apparently being discussed with certain actors but there is no official news of this yet and it is important to bear in mind that this is media speculation only. Johnny Depp, who plays the iconclastic Jack Sparrow with such attractive panache, has said on record that he would be happy to continue playing the roguish but nice pirate. For more on this story see Keep to the Code. Filming for Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End is ongoing. However latest reports suggest a few technical gremlins have been besetting the production units currently camped out in Palmdale, California, where specially converted aircraft hangars are being used to host filming in progress. The film is planned to wrap in November.
