We know you love Jerry Bruckheimer - don't even try to deny it. Granted, the man's ubiquity can get a little annoying. And, sure, he's been involved with a lot of crap. But come on, people: Days of Thunder? Top Gun? The Amazing Race? Pirates of the Caribbean? Face it – he's a frighteningly big part of American culture. And he's also very, very busy. So, when Coming Soon sat down for a chat with the man himself, the got a mess of updates on a variety of projects. To sum up:
- There's only about a week left in shooting Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest; it will wrap this month and be edited in March.
- Pirates of the Caribbean 3 will get underway at the end of summer.
- National Treasure 2 is coming (yippee), complete with an "excited" Nicolas Cage.
- As we've told you, Deja Vu will start shooting in February in New Orleans.
- Despite The Island, Michael Bay is "a great guy and he's a visionary." Yikes.
- If Sony was interested, Bruckheimer would make Bad Boys 3 (again with the yikes) "in a second."
