JACK Sparrow could moor the Black Pearl in Gloucester Docks next month when scenes for the next Pirates of the Caribbean film will allegedly be filmed there next month.
Excitement is mounting that Johnny Depp, Geoffrey Rush and Keith Richards will be in the city as the historic location will reportedly feature in the next instalment of the Disney franchise.
Major dredging work is taking place at the docks and the rumour mill is gathering pace claiming this is being done ahead of the arrival of five tall ships next month.
A spokesman for the Inland Waterways Association said it has not been consulted over the dredging which has minimised boat movements at an “extremely busy” time of the year.
Pirates of the Caribbean 5 – Dead Men Tell No Tales is also being filmed in Puerto Rico and New Orleans.
