Bring me that horizon: The tall ship Bounty to appear in PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 2!

Another link between Johnny Depp and his dear friend, the late Marlon Brando: the replica of the tall ship HMS Bounty which was used in the 1962 movie MUTINY ON THE BOUNTY, in which Brando starred as Fletcher Christian, will make its next movie appearance in PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 2. The Bounty has a film resume many actors would envy, and can currently be seen on screen in the movie SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS.

The Bounty will winter at the Pier in St. Petersburg, Florida, where she is due to arrive on Wednesday. While in port, the 169-foot ship will be refitted for her role in POTC 2. There’s no word yet on whether the Bounty will once again portray a ship of the Royal Navy, or if she will go against type and portray a pirate ship. Thanks to DeepinDepp for posting the story on the News&Views forum.
