After being swallowed by big-mofo Uncle Kraken in POTC 2: Dead Man's Chest, the fun-loving Jack Sparrow played by Johnny Depp will make a comeback in the upcoming POTC 3: At World's End. The movie will be expected to be released on May 2007 (damn fast rite?). This time, Captain Barbossa, Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann must sail off the edge of the map, navigate treachery and betrayal, and make their final alliances for one last decisive battle.

With the forthcoming promotional tour for the domestic and international releases, director Gore Verbinski and his Pirates cast and crew won't see much of a break, heading back to finish production on part 3 this August.

"We are actually not going back to the Bahamas", says Verbinski. "We have shooting that is going to be off the coast of California. A little bit of water, but alot of stage work left".

Filming POTC 3: At World's End

Portions of the third film were completed during production of Dead Man's Chest, particularly the sequences that took advantage of the same sets. The initial plan was to finish both films at once, but production problems have forced the cast and crew to return to finish the film.

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer comments: "Storms, hurricanes, sick actors. Little things that - some mechanical problems that we had stretched it out, so we had to cut our shooting short a little bit, which in a way was good because it gives us more time to prepare and edit the second movie."

Keith Richards: Captain Jack's papa

Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards will be playing the father of Captain Jack Sparrow in third film. Johnny Depp had said he adopted the body language and mannerisms of the veteran guitarist to create Sparrow's character.

"We're all looking forward to the idea of Keith coming in and doing a cameo," Depp said in London.

"You never say it's definite until the guy steps on the set and the camera is rolling. But it's looking very, very good," he added.

Kevin McNally and the hot Keira Knightley

"The only thing I can say is that we go to a completely other part of the world and we face a completely new range of baddies which are even worse than the ones we've faced before - they're really, really evil and nasty - even more so than Davy Jones, although he'll be back of course," said Kevin McNally during an interview with BANG Showbiz.

McNally continued: "The supernatural stories stay there and there is a big new supernatural element that's much bigger than the ones we've had before."

When asked about the location for the new movie, he said they are "heading to Singapore. If I told you anymore, I'd have to kill you."

Yun-Fat: Colgate model from China

Chow Yun-Fat will be playing a major role as Captain Sao Feng, the leader of the villians that McNally refers to above.
