RUSH BACK FOR PIRATES?
Jerry Buckheimer hinted to About.Com this week that Geoffrey Rush may indeed be back for ?Pirates of the Caribbean 2? ? despite his character?s bereavement in the first film.
Asking about the cast that will be on board the sequel, Bruckheimer said ?That?s going to be a secret. I?m not going tell you, but we have plans.? in relation to whether Oscar Winner Rush will be back.
Meanwhile, The Uber-Producer confirmed that they?ll actually be filming two sequels back to back. ?We made a deal with Gore [Verbinski] to do 2 and 3. We made a deal with [Ted] Elliot and [Terry] Rossio who rewrote the first film. They did an outline for 2 and 3. They?re writing number 2 right now and we?re negotiating with all the actors.?
The story will continue through the two sequels, he says ?It will be continuing, but you?ll definitely have an end at the end of two. The story will pick up again in three.?
Though they are negotiating, Bruckheimer is confident that the lead actors will return. ?Johnny [Depp]?s really excited about doing it. You can ask Keira [Knightley]. I think she?s excited about doing it and we?d love to have Orlando [Bloom] back. He?s told Gore he wants to do it. So it comes down to if you can financially afford them because they?ve all become bigger stars than they were when we first started three years ago.?
Bruckheimer also hinted that the adventure could expand beyond the Caribbean. ?It?ll still be the Caribbean and we might go to Thailand, to the Far East.?
