Man Dressed as Pirate Threatens Security Guard With Knife on Set of 'Pirates 5'

The man also had a parrot, but police couldn't confirm if it was real or not.

Shiver me timbers!

A man dressed as a pirate threatened a security guard with a knife on the Australian set of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, reports local news channel 9 News.

Local reports say Queensland police are hunting for the man, who was seen with a parrot on his shoulder when the incident occurred, although a police spokesman could not confirm if the parrot was real or not. 

Queensland police released a photo of the man they are looking for in connection with the incident. 


The fifth Pirates film, which again stars Johnny Depp as Captain Jack and rising stars Brenton Thwaites and Kaya Scodelario, started shooting on the Queensland coast last month. The film is slated to hit theaters on July 7, 2017.
