The publicist for the film has confirmed that filming is taking place Lennox Head today only and that confirmed that some of the stars of the film are in Lennox today, but could not confirm which stars.

 

The film's stars:

  • Johnny Depp
  • Orlando Bloom
  • Kaya Scodelario
  •  Brenton Thwaites - Australian
  • Javier Bardem 
  • Geoffrey Rush - Australian

 

Most of the footage being filmed in Lennox today will be done from a helicopter, the publicist confirmed - so if you see a helicopter, you might also spot some Hollywood royalty.

"What a gorgeous location this," the publicist said.

"Weather is really stunning today. The crew is having a great time."

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is due for release in July 2017 and is being filmed mostly on the Gold Coast.
