Yo, no! PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN sequels postpone further filming until August!

The Freeport News reports that the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN sequels, starring Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, will not begin filming at Gold Rock Creek Studios on Grand Bahama as expected this week. Instead, filming has been postponed for an indefinite period while the construction of the multimillion-dollar Collyer water tank is completed. A press release issued by the producers states: “After more than 70 days of nonstop shooting and travelling to locations such as Los Angeles, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Dominica, and the Exumas for PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 2 and 3, the producers felt that now was an appropriate time to take a break.” Publicist Michael Singer added, “It was always scheduled for us to take a hiatus close to this period of time.”

The filming hiatus was moved up, apparently, because the facilities on Grand Bahama were not yet finished. Another contributing factor, according to the press release, was the minor illness of a supporting player whose physician told him to stay in Britain until his inner ear infection had healed. The release concludes, “Filming is expected to recommence around August.” The Zone thanks emma, Reemi, DeepinDepp, Gilbert’s Girl,and Dark Angel for contributing stories to our News & Views forum–you can read the full press release there.
