Local actors warned of scam ‘Pirates’ casting call

GOLD COAST actors are being warned about an online ‘casting call’ scam.

The fake audition calls are for the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean movie, which is set to be filmed here on the Coast as well as other Queensland locations.

Local agents were flooded with inquiries, after a website known as ‘Disney Casting Calls’ published a list of roles they were looking for.


But the information is all false and was designed to get actors to buy an Actors Guide available on the website.

Pre-production of the fifth installment of the popular franchise is currently underway at Village Roadshow Studios in Oxenford.

It’s understood real casting calls will likely be held next year.
