Bruckheimer Talks "Pirates 3" and "National Treasure 2"

by | July 5, 2006 | Comments

Throw a rock across a search engine and you’re bound to find a bunch of new "Dead Man’s Chest" interviews. had a fairly interesting one with uber-producer Jerry Bruckheimer, and the mega-successful moviemaker dropped a few tidbits on "Pirates 3," a sequel to "National Treasure," and a few goodies we can expect on the "Pirates 2" DVD.

Excerpted from

"CS: Why did you decide to do another one?
Bruckheimer: First of all, the first movie entertained so many people. Disney and myself, and some of the other people involved felt that we should do another one and try to entertain them again. And Johnny [Depp] wanted to continue his character. Orlando [Bloom] and Keira [Knightely] were excited about coming back, and I think the hardest part was getting everybody together at the same time period. That’s why we made two movies. To get [director] Gore [Verbinski], [Ted] Elliott and [Terry] Rossio, the three lead actors – that’s the hard part. Scheduling is really difficult. Then making the deal, especially when you come off a successful picture everybody deserves more money, and of course Disney always wants to make it for less. So you have a real problem.

CS: Johnny said he would keep going on with these movies. Is there a point where you just say that’s enough?
Bruckheimer: As long as Terry and Ted come up with interesting plots and themes, we’ll continue to make them. And Disney wants to finance them, we’d love to do it. He loves the character, we love the movies, we love working with all the creative talent that’s involved. It’s been a lot of fun.

CS: Gore said he hasn’t thought about what’s going to be on the DVD. Do you have DVD plans?
Bruckheimer: Oh yeah. There’s a lot of phenomenal stuff that we filmed that is not in the movie. That dice game. There’s some additional footage on that dice game that’s fantastic that will be in the DVD. There’s a lot of stuff like that.

CS: Does this require more to complete the effects?
Bruckheimer: They’re already completed. Gore getting time to go into the editing room and kind of go through all that material and start putting it together. And some wonderful stuff on Cannibal Island with Johnny. Some very funny things, you just couldn’t put everything in."
