Pirates Sequels Attacked By The Real Thing

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 (11NOV05) saw the brazen thieves make off with $20,000 (GBP11,500) 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 (the robbers) were able to get into the room with a key and stole everything from laptops, passports, cheques, and other equipment. The money they stole was actually the actors' pay cheques."

Kakebeen admits that filming has come to a standstill while the crimes are investigated, but refuses to reveal the identity of the stars targetted, who have since left the shoot.

OMG.......... pirates they may of hoped to be but somehow i dont think they will be for long when justice catches up with them :).How awlful it must of been for the cast to have their pay checks stolen etc, hope they get it back as the have all worked for it.Some how i dont think they will have the good reputation as the pirates we all know and love ;).All best and hope film was resumed back to normal, but i quess the break may of been good for the while they was waiting to get back on set.XXX
