SKARSGARD AS BLOOM'S FATHER
Swedish actor Stellan Skarsg? (Ronin, Amistad, Exorcist: The Beginning, King Arthur) has landed the role as Orlando Bloom's father 'Bootstraps' Turner in the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' sequels slated to start shooting this year.
According to the Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet, Skarsg? starts working on the project in February and will finish in December.
'We are going to shoot around the Los Angeles area as well as in the Bahamas and the West Indies,' says Skarsg?. 'I'm playing the old pirate 'Bootstraps' Turner... it should be fun, I enjoyed the first one.'
Producer Jerry Bruckheimer recently said he was also negotiating with Geoffrey Rush to return as Barbossa in a third 'Pirates of the Caribbean' movie. Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley are all signed on to return, along with the director and writers from 'Curse of the Black Pearl.'
