Bruckheimer on Pirates 2 and 3
Jerry Bruckheimer was brief in what he revealed about the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean sequels. The one big note was that Keith Richards is not in fact signed to play Johnny Depp’s character’s father. “We don’t have him yet,” Bruckheimer said.
He does still plan to make Pirates 2 and 3 simultaneously if possible. “We’d like to. If Disney will write a check, we’ll do it.”
Of course, that schedule has only worked once, with the Lord of the Rings films. Other series, like The Matrix and Back to the Future found diminishing returns for forcing two sequels at the same time.
“We hope that we can do it as well as Lord of the Rings did it. That’s what you shoot for. You only learn through making mistakes, so we’ll watch what Back to the Future did and Matrix did and hopefully not repeat what they did.”
Bruckheimer’s confidence is pinned on the talent from the original film. “We have the same team that did the first one and hopefully we can have the same success. It’s the same two writers who rewrote the first one and same director, same three actors initially and we’re negotiating with the rest of them, so hopefully we’ll get everybody back.”
Production is expected to begin in March. Bruckheimer has a subtitle for the second entry, and he wouldn’t reveal it, though he confirmed it is not “Treasures of the Lost Abyss” as suggested on IMDB.
The New York Premiere of Finding Neverland is today, but, I don’t think Johnny will be attending. Too bad.
Regarding all the e-mail and comments asking if Vanessa is pregnant. I honestly don’t know. She looks like she is but she could’ve just gained a little weight. I will post if I hear any official news, but, until then, I’m not gonna be speculating, okay?
According to the official website, movie opens in US on November 12th, however, imdb.com has November 24th as the official date. Also on imdb.com, you can check international release dates for the movie. It only opens here in Brazil on February 4th (one day before my birthday!), but, it’s soo long! If anyone has already seen it, please don’t post spoilers! I hate spoilers!
I would just like to alert UK fans that VH1 is airing Benny & Joon tonight at 9pm.

Here are a few Johnny related articles. Most of them are about the MTV movie awards which Johnny didn’t actually attend but instead a short video was shown of his acceptance speech.
You can now view the Neverland (or ‘Finding Neverland’)trailer by clicking here and the official Miramax site can be found here. The site doesn’t have much content yet but I’m sure that it will closer to the movie’s release date.
Oh and don’t forget that you can vote for Secret Window in the Teen Choice Awards by visiting this site.
Today is Johnny’s 41st birthday!! Happy Birthday!!! We wish you all the happiness in the world!!!
The MTV Movie Awards airs this Thursday, June 10, at 9 p.m. ET (That’s for USA, check your local listings on other countries!!)
I don’t think Johnny was there to receive the award, I haven’t been able to find any picture…
The Hollywood heartthrob will play a gypsy in the $17 million adaptation of Harry Crew’s book ‘The Gypsy’s Curse’, while the mother of his two children will play a scheming temptress.
The movie, which is due to start filming in August, tells the story of a disabled man who falls under the spell of Paradis’ character and is warned of his fate by Depp.
Only last week, Vanessa hinted she could never make a movie with her longtime partner – because he would make her laugh too much.
The French singer-turned-actress confessed: “Neither of us knows whether it would work. My worry is keeping a straight face in front of him – he makes me laugh all the time. So trying to be serious, to give him a look without having to giggle – honestly, I don’t know if I could do that.”
This other article from antestreia.com (which is in portuguese and thanks Tulipa for pointing it out) also tells that Johnny will be filming in Portugal!
