Ian McShane and Penelope Cruz will be playing Blackbeard and his daughter in the fourth installment of Pirates of the Caribbean. Searching around for a different angle to enhance this news I found something at The New York Post, but it’s the opposite of enhancement:
Disney is searching for real treasure chests for its upcoming shoot of the next “Pirates of the Caribbean” swashbuckler — that is, women with natural breasts.
The movie studio has banned actresses with artificial enhancements for the fourth installment, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” directed by Rob Marshall and starring Johnny Depp as the drunken buccaneer Jack Sparrow.
The filmmakers sent out a casting call last week seeking “beautiful female fit models. Must be 5ft7in-5ft8in, size 4 or 6, no bigger or smaller. Age 18-25. Must have a lean dancer body. Must have real breasts. Do not submit if you have implants.”
And they warn that there’ll be a “show and tell” day.
yeah, you’re gonna click to read the rest, aren’t you?
To make sure LA talent scouts don’t get caught in a “booby trap,” potential lassies will have to undergo a Hollywood-style jiggle-your-jugs test and jog for judges. If there’s nothing moving from the waist up, they’re saying, it’s a dead giveaway that you’re not all flesh and bones — and you’re out.
Apparently, the bouncier the better, especially for sword-fighting action sequences, according to the Sunday Times of London.
“In the last movie, there were enhanced breasts to give that 18th-century whorish look, and men were pretty well padded too, and no one worried,” a former casting agent said. “But times are changing, and the audience can spot false breasts.”
…The naturally endowed actresses must also be able to swim and dive for the summer shoot in Hawaii. The movie is set for a May 2011 release.
Ian McShane will play Blackbeard, and Penelope Cruz replaces Knightley as Sparrow’s love interest.
A Disney spokesman refused to comment.
