Johnny Depp Arrives on Dry Land in London to Scare School Children
Johnny Depp and his Pirates of the Caribbean 4 cohorts are on the move once again. They started shooting in Hawaii this summer, then spent a few weeks in L.A. and Puerto Rico.
Last week, they landed at the Old Royal Naval College on the campus of the University of Greenwich, in London, where they transformed several buildings into an 18th Century village. Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is scheduled to film in Greenwich for the next 4 or 5 weeks.
Greenwich is best known for its maritime history and the National Maritime Museum, which is the largest museum of its kind in the world. The Naval College has always been a popular filming location and has already been featured in The Duchess, Gulliver’s Travels, The Golden Compass and The Wolfman.
Earlier this week, Depp visited one of the local elementary schools in Greenwich, Meridian Primary School, dressed in full Captain Jack Sparrow garb. He made the trip after a savvy nine-year-old student, Beatrice Delap, wrote him asking for help staging a 'mutiny' against her teachers. After the visit, Beatrice said, "He gave me a hug and he said, 'Maybe we shouldn't mutiny today 'cos there are police outside monitoring me'."
