Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
The debate continues on whether or not Keith Richards will make a cameo appearance as Jack Sparrow's father in Pirates of the Caribbean 2: Dead Man's Chest. We first heard that the singer was in, then his hectic tour schedule took him out, then Bruckheimer negotiated to get him back in, then he backed out and said Disney frightened him, then he was in, out, in, out... you get the gist.
However, now I think it may be Disney who is f*@king with us. The latest reports on Richards have turned from 'no way' to 'optimistic' and 'still negotiating.' Should we assume that Keith Richards is already in Pirates of the Caribbean 2? Probably not, but he is one cameo Disney might find worth keeping secret.
Orlando Bloom Talks Dead Man's Chest
Entertainment Weekly recently caught up with Orlando Bloom and got him to discuss whatever details he could on one of the most highly anticipated sequels, or should I say films, coming our way this year. Though Bloom probably couldn't spill too much, the guy did have a lot of enthusiasm about the sword fight previewed in the trailer for Pirates 2.
''There's a huge sword sequence, which, if it isn't the sword sequence that puts all sword sequences to bed, then I can't imagine what anyone could ever pull out of the ether to top it,'' he declares. It's a clash among three characters ó including his Will Turner and Johnny Depp's Jack Sparrow (pictured) ó ''on a big water-mill wheel as it rolls down a hill. And we fight on top of it, and around it, and inside it. It's crazy.''
Since one of the hottest topics that currently floats around the Black Pearl is whether we can expect to see Keith Richards, EW decided to ask producer Jerry Bruckheimer if there was any update on that. Keeping to Disney form, Bruckheimer only had this to say: 'We're trying to work out his tour schedule with our schedule. We're optimistic.'
