Roasted Johnny upsets locals
27 April 2005 – bbc.co.uk. – Apparently filming the sequels of Pirates of the Caribbean 2 & 3 down on the island of Bataka in the Caribbean is having a negative effect on the locals. There is a particular scene they are objecting to one in which Johnny is being roasted alive over an open pit. ENT NEWS reports residents have accused studio bosses of implying their ancestors were cannibals, but the film company insists the scene is light-hearted and in no way reflects their cultural history.
