Keira Knightley Reveals Pirates Scene
Source: MTV, iF Magazine October 13, 2005
Keira Knightley spilled the beans to MTV on a new character in one of the two "Pirates of the Caribbean" sequels.
"I had my first day back [recently], because we had a little bit of a break over the summer. My first day back was being dragged across the deck by an invisible giant squid, invisible because it's being put in by CGI afterwards," Knightley giggled.
"So I just spent the entire time pretending that it was tentacles everywhere, and the director was running around going, 'I'm a tentacle, I'm a tentacle.' It takes a little bit of an imagination; I have no idea what it's going to look like, but hopefully it'll be cool."
Meanwhile, the films' director Gore Verbinski told iF Magazine that they are "a quarter of the way through the third one and three quarters of the way through the second one. It's madness."
"We actually have a pretty good second script and the third script is still on the operating table," he added. "And we're in triage constantly, everyday. I don't recommend making two movies at once. I think that we're going to get there, but it's just madness...There's a lot of fun and I think that the second movie is strong and clever and has a lot going on. The third movie we're still working on."
Verbinski also commented on the rumor that the production is still trying to get Keith Richards to play Captain Jack Sparrow's (Johnny Depp) dad in the sequels. "We hope so," he says. "We're trying to work out his dates. We all want it to work, but it's his tour dates and his lawyers."
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest will hit theaters on July 7, 2006, while Pirates of the Caribbean 3 is coming in summer 2007.
