Empire Online caught up with British actor Bill Nighy, who stars as planet builder Slartibartfast in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and asked about his upcoming slate.

Nighy said that his character Davy Jones will very much be the villain of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest and possibly Pirates of the Caribbean 3.

“I am a very, very, very, very bad man and I am there to make people suffer in all new ways, in ways that you won’t have seen before,” he smiled. While staying mum on how that will be done, he did reveal that “I have a boat and I have a crew, and they are really evil buggers.”

He added that his character will have quite a bit of help from the effects wizards at Industrial Light & Magic (ILM). “I’m so computer generated that you might have trouble spotting me. You’ll know it’s me, but you might have to check the credits afterwards,” he laughed.

Read full entry, there are some news about Underworld: Evolution there aswell, in case you’re insterested in the movie. (Bill played Viktor in Underworld)

The BBC reports that the “Pirates of the Caribbean” sequels plan to portray Dominica’s Carib Indians as cannibals. Shooting on the films is expected to take place this April in the area, with hundreds of Dominicans applying to be extras in the movie.

Carib Chief Charles Williams said talks with Disney’s producers revealed there was “a strong element of cannibalism in the script which cannot be removed”.

The Caribs have long denied their ancestors practiced cannibalism. “Our ancestors stood up against early European conquerors and because they stood up…we were labelled savages and cannibals up to today,” said Williams.

About 3,000 Caribs live on the island of Dominica.

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.

I love the idea of changing my look. I think one owes it to the audience, to go out there and give them something different each time, so as not to bore them to death. And I always felt that if you're not trying something different each time out of the gate, you're being safe, and you don't ever want to find that place of safety. I like that, each time, before I even go in front of the cameras, the studio's reaction will be fear. They have those hideous pangs of fear where they go, "He's fucking killing the movie." And I can't argue with them, because I might be. But I just know for the character that this is the right thing to do. And I've always enjoyed hiding behind these characters. It's a strange thing, you're more comfortable as a character than you are in life. You know what I mean? I could stand up in front of, it doesn't matter how many people, as a character. But if I had to do it as myself and give a speech, I would be liquid.
