Queensland MP confirms Pirates of the Caribbean news

IT has been confirmed Pirates of the Caribbean Five will be filmed on the Gold Coast and in Port Douglas and north of Mackay.

Canberra contributed over $20-million to bring the famous franchise down under, with the announcement set to create thousands of job opportunities.

The announcement was made by Queensland Arts Minister Ian Walker at a Press Conference on Thursday.


There is no word yet on whether Johnny Depp will appear in this flick, with casting still to be finalised.

But Channel Nine said it is a safe bet to assume that the Hollywood star will make an appearance.
