Early talk from director Gore Verbinski and producer Jerry Bruckheimer suggest that the DVD for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest could be loaded with extras.
In a story from Home Media Retailing, Bruckheimer has even spoke of specific scenes that could find their way to the eventual disc.
In regards to a dice game that Will (Orlando Bloom) plays with some ghosts, Verbinksi states, "There aren't really whole scenes that were omitted, but there are a lot of pieces of scenes and more information about characters."
"[There is] some wonderful stuff on Cannibal Island with Johnny [Depp], some very funny things that you just couldn't put in," Jerry Bruckheimer added.
According to the film's screenwriter Ted Elliot, there is footage that was excised because it was more pertinent to the third film in the franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End.
"It's all theory until you've got it in front of the audience," Elliot offered. "When we were actually looking at the movie, we didn't need that information in this movie."
Bruckheimer says there might even be a trailer for the third film on the DVD but that all depends on how much footage Verbinski has in the can. He guarantees that in addition to everything else the discs will feature many other behind the scenes offerings.
"We had a guy there most of the time," Bruckheimer stated. "I think we gave the assistant cameramen some video cameras or digital cameras, so there's a lot of material available. There was a documentarian that was following Gore around during the pre-production and the script phase of it, which has got some wonderful stuff. And information on decisions that were made on building the ships, not building the ships, where to build things, what to do, the twists and turns in the script [are available]."
