    REAL Pirates on the PoC II set.....


    ‘Pirates’ Sequels Attacked by the Real Thing

    By WENN|Friday, November 25, 2005

    HOLLYWOOD - Filming on the two back-to-back sequels of Pirates of the Caribbean has been dogged by a spate of real-life ocean thievery, according to reports from the Bahamas.
    Disney producers working on the swashbuckling Keira Knightley and Johnny Depp films reveal that two cast members have been forced to abandon the set for fear of their lives, after four brigand heists in a month.

    The last robbery saw the brazen thieves make off with $20,000 in cash and equipment.

    Jason Kakebeen, head of location production, says, "We've had a slew of robberies on the actors who are working for Pirates of the Caribbean over at the Port Lucaya resort.

    They're short twenty grand in cash?

    Has everyone in the cast checked their other pants pockets already?

    Okay, the link finally worked. "Real-life ocean thievery" by way of room keys in a resort? Well in that case, they've practically got the jolly roger flying over a couple of motels in west Texas that I know of.

    If tangling with the real thing is the kind of news some sufficiently demented publicist really wants (as if folks weren't interested enough in the sequel already), they might want to pack up and go on location to the waters off the Phillipines, Madagascar, or Bangladesh. Piracy is still very big business for some groups of folks out there.

    Frankly, I hope they wouldn't. Like most everyone else, I'd like to see this new movie as soon as it's ready, and without having to replace any of the cast we already know and love.

    I don't understand... Didn't they know they were messing with Cap'n Jack Sparrow Love?

    Piracy is still very much around. Commercial diving vessels get targeted all the time out Asia-way...

    Yeah, but those Pirates aren't the cool ones like Sparrow.
