Fourth 'Pirates' installment to be shot on Kauai, Oahu in summer
Walt Disney Pictures has decided to film “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” in Hawaii, Gov. Linda Lingle’s office announced this morning.
The fourth installment in the action-adventure series will be shot on Kauai and Oahu this summer. It is scheduled for release in summer 2011.
Lingle’s office said filming is expected to generate about $85 million in direct and indirect spending in the Islands and provide hundreds of jobs for residents.
“Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” will once again star Johnny Depp as Capt. Jack Sparrow.
The film is being produced by Jerry Bruckheimer and directed by Rob Marshall.
"We've always sought out the most extraordinary and exotic locations for the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' films and previously shot briefly on both Maui and Molokai for 'Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End,' " Bruckheimer said.
"Hawaii provides an amazing range of both land and seascapes and we're delighted to return for 'On Stranger Tides.' "
