ABOUT THIS MOVIE

(Compiled by Jan & Mindy)

Quotes from Johnny Depp:

"For me, there was only reason and one reason only, it was Captain Jack. It was selfishly to have the opportunity to play Captain Jack again. Some people can look at it and say, 'Depp sold out.' I don't believe that I have. It certainly wasn't my intention to sell out but I wanted to play again because I think he's so much fun to play and I think there is so much more to explore with that character that I would keep going. If they wanted me to do Pirate 7, why not?"
--Johnny Depp
Total Film Magazine
Summer 2006

"The amount of fun that I have playing this character is truly borderline criminal."
--Johnny Depp
The Independent
July 2006

"We see him (Jack) from a different angle. He is still the same type, but he faces a serious dilemma in Dead Man's Chest. So you see Jack in another perspective."
--Johnny Depp
Cine Fantastico (translated)
2006

"Boyhis priorities in life? That is a good question. I would say that it's the freedom. There is a phrase at the end of the first Pirates where Jack goes towards the horizon, and that horizon represents the freedom, but at the same time that unattainable horizon, you never reach it, you never arrive at the objective so you must always go forwards."
--Johnny Depp

"It's very simple and a little embarrassing because if I shave, it would take me months and months, like half a year to grow it back. What I have is like a full beard for me. Seven hairs here, three over there, all this kind of patchy stuff and that's it. That's all I get. So, if I shaved, they'd have to glue something on and that wouldn't work."
--Johnny Depp
Filmink Magazine

"Being strapped into this massive wheel and rolling upside down days on end was the worst, I didn't really mind that, but at some point they struck my foot and I lost feeling in the upper half of my foot. For four months you could put a pin in it and I couldn't feel it. It was scary!"
--Johnny Depp

"When something happens because you feel it and you do it in a big wide master shot, it alters the rhythm for a second and it kind of throws the thing takes the bottom out from under you for a second which is quite fun because you see honest reactions all around. People panic for a second and that kind of panic is fun and I think important, good for you." (on improvising)

London Premiere Interview
July 2006

"The anticipation was mad. Everybody was like, 'Is [Keith Richards] going to do it? Is he going to do it?' And then whammo, he arrived at 8 o'clock in the morning, totally prepped and ready to go. Obviously, Keith Richards - the guy invented charisma. But what I didn't expect was he was going to be such a great actor. I started calling him 'Two-Take Richards.' It was like this gunslinger who arrived in the town, charmed all the women and impressed all the men, and then split."
--Johnny Depp

"I had nothing to do with the kiss with Johnny, although I was really happy that there was one!"
--Keira Knightly
BBC
2006

"Don't look at Johnny! Ignore him at all costs. He was actually quite nice because he wouldn't do the full Jack Sparrow routine if the camera was on you, but as soon as the camera turns around you couldn't do any off camera lines because you were laughing so much. I think there will be a lot of out-takes (on the dvd) of everybody p*****g themselves in the middle of the scene. I remember the crew standing around with tears running down their faces. They were desperately trying to keep it in."
--Keira Knightly

"[Johnny] was brilliant. Fantastic. Mainly, for me to see Johnny Depp interpret Jack Sparrow is divertidisimo. You see him and you say 'he is a genius'."

"I've got to hand it to Johnny who was willing to have himself nailed into a box in the middle of the night in the middle of the Carribean Ocean and then to have explosives wired in as well."
