More Pirates! Magazine feature on PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: AT WORLD'S END in THE WORKS (U.K.)

Magazine coverage of PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: AT WORLD’S END is picking up; UK mag THE WORKS features an interview with director Gore Verbinski in their May issue. “The global movie audience is already salivating at the thought of AT WORLD’S END continuing the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN franchise,” John Millar’s article begins. “And as the fans have their patience stretched tight as they wait for the film to hit the screen with all cannons blazing, they can remind themselves that they owe a debt of gratitude to the trilogy’s director Gore Verbinski.” Millar credits Verbinski’s “buccaneering style” with helping to “breathe life into a pirate genre” that had been dismissed by Hollywood.

According to Millar, the director also understood that not all treasure is silver and gold–sometimes it arrives as pure talent. “Verbinski also knew that his leading man possessed a comic talent that would provide a special piece of magic [. . . ] because Depp has the capacity to be a modern day Buster Keaton or Charlie Chaplin,” writes Millar. Johnny’s director agrees. “He is a virtuoso,” says Verbinski. “It is like having Miles Davis in your band and you have got to let him go solo. The storyboards can be a funny image and then you put Johnny into it and he makes it his own.”
