The Fifth "Pirates Of The Caribbean" To Be Filmed In Puerto Rico

It has been reported that the fifth installment of the movie “Pirates of the Caribbean” will be filmed in Puerto Rico.  The Puerto Rico Film Commission reported that Disney Pictures had picked Puerto Rico over Hawaii.  The movie franchise is among the most successful.  The “Pirates of the Caribbean”  series has grossed more than $3.7 billion around the world.  “Pirates of the Caribbean” would be the biggest production to date to be filmed in Puerto Rico, thanks to aggressive incentives that have attracted filmmakers to the island.

Two years ago, some scenes of “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” were shot in Puerto Rico.  Producers enjoyed the the local film crews and the locations in Puerto Rico.  Filming is expected to begin in November, starring Johnny Depp, reprising his role of Jack Sparrow.  Depp has filmed “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” and “The Rum Diary” in Puerto Rico. 

We will be hearing much more about this news in the near future.  Other productions recently filmed in Puerto Rico are Showtime’s “The Big C” and the movie “Runner, Runner” with Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake.
