Pirates of the Caribbean QLD Shoot!

Pirates of the Caribbean QLD Shoot!


It’s confirmed! Shooting is underway in “a secret Queensland location” for Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer’s latest Pirates of the Caribbean flick; PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES.

Directed by Espen Sandberg & Joachim Rønning (KON-TIKI), it will be the fifth instalment in the blockbuster franchise inspired by the classic Disney Theme Parks attraction. The series has hauled in $3.7 billion at the worldwide box office.

While some may argue they should have stopped at a trilogy, the cast of flick #5 looks pretty cool – enough to make me give it another go anyway.

Johnny Depp returns to his iconic, Academy Award®-nominated role of Captain Jack Sparrow. He is joined by Oscar® winner Javier Bardem (NO COUNTRY FOR OLD MEN, SKYFALL) and relative newcomer Aussie actor Brenton Thwaites. Geoffrey Rush will also be returning.

The synopsis sounds fittingly swashbuckling: Thrust into an all-new adventure, a down-on-his-luck Captain Jack Sparrow finds the winds of ill-fortune blowing even more strongly when deadly ghost pirates led by his old nemesis, the terrifying Captain Salazar (Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle, determined to kill every pirate at sea…including him. Captain Jack’s only hope of survival lies in seeking out the legendary Trident of Poseidon, a powerful artefact that bestows upon its possessor total control over the seas

The movie will be filmed entirely in Queensland. 

Sian's love for movies spawned from having a tight mother whose generosity stretched only to hiring movies once a week for entertainment. As a pre-teen Sian spent more pocket money then she earned on cinema tickets and thus sought a job at the cinema. Over the next decade she rose to be one of the greats in her backwater, six-screen cinema complex, zooming through the ranks from candy bar wench with upselling superpowers, to pasty projectionist, to a manager rocking a pencil skirt. Sian went on to study Journalism at university though feels her popcorn shovelling days were far more educational
