Résumé de l'éditeur

"I think it might be rather exciting to meet a pirate."

WITH THOSE innocent words, young Elizabeth Swann voiced a desire that would be realized in three of the most successful and creative film experiences of the twenty-first century - Pirates of the Caribbean : The Curse of the Black Pearl, Pirates of the Caribbean : Dead Man's Chest, and Pirates of the Caribbean : At World's End. As lush and lavish as the films themselves, Bring Me That Horizon : The Making of Pirates of the Caribbean goes behind the sails to tell the extraordinary tale of how the pirates came to life (and afterlife) with the collaboration of some of the movie industry's top talents in front of and behind the cameras, including producer Jerry Bruckheimer, director Gore Verbinski, screenwriters Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, and actors Johnny Depp, Keira Knightley, Orlando Bloom, Chow Yun-Fat, Bill Nighy, and Geoffrey Rush, among a stellar crew of characters and craftspeople.

From casting to costumes to computer graphics, from curses to cutlasses to corsets, this beautifully designed narrative describes all aspects of the Pirates movie-making process. Author Michael Singer, the unit publicist for the second two Pirates films and a true "insider", takes readers on an extraordinary journey, recounting the links in the Pirates of the Caribbean chain - from the last Disneyland attraction in which Walt Disney was personally involved, to a film project spearheaded by the world's most successful producer and a vividly imaginative director, starring one of the most surprising casting and characterization choices.

A veritable treasure chest of exclusive photos and information, this book reveals all the fascinating details of the production, costumes, hair and makeup, sets and location filming, shipbuilding, stunts, and visual and physical effects of all three films. Also included are profiles on the films' incredible characters as portrayed by Academy Award nominee Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightley, Academy Award winner Geoffrey Rush, Bill Nighy, Stellan Skarsgard, Chow Yun-Fat, and the rest of the pirate crews.

Additionally, producer Jerry Bruckheimer has contributed his own photographs taken on set during the production of each film, revealing the intimate moments and grand-scale process of movie-making that is rarely seen outside the studio.

So join Jack Sparrow (sorry - Captain Jack Sparrow), Will, Elizabeth, Gibbs, Pintel & Ragetti, Captain Barbossa, Bootstrap Bill, and pirates skeletal and crustacean-encrusted as Bring Me That Horizon : The Making of Pirates of the Caribbean takes readers inside one of the most popular movie adventures ever made.

MICHAEL SINGER is a writer and unit publicist whose previous books include The Making of Oliver Stone's Heaven and Earth and "making of" books for Batman Returns, Batman Forever, and Batman & Robin, as well as A Cut Above : 50 Film Directors Talk About Their Craft and thirteen annual editions of the pre-internet-age reference book Michael Singer's Film Directors : A Complete Guide. Singer has also contributed to the books Insight Guide : Japan, Insight Guide : American Southwest, and John Woo : Interviews.
