Knightley Discusses Movie Piracy (the good kind)

Reliable old Ed Douglas at had what must have been a heavenly sit-down with the lovely Keira Knightley, and the young lady gave up all sorts of interesting info on the upcoming "Pirates of the Caribbean" sequels.

"We asked Knightley why she thought the first movie was such a hugely popular hit. "I have no idea. It's still a mystery," she admitted. "What's amazing is that there's such a wealth of stories there--you know, the pirating stories--and if you can tap into it and if you can do it well then it's just that spark of imagination. There's all those films when you're a kid that you kind of remember as part of your childhood that you've sort of lived through. I'm thinking like a "Wizard of Oz" or something like that so many people go 'Yes, that was me when I was 7 or 11,' and I think, in a funny kind of way, with a lot of kids, Pirates has managed to do that. What's clever about it is that it's got that thing where it's got humor for adults and it's got humor for kids,and the kids won't get the stuff that the adults are laughing at. I think in a funny way, that makes the best kind of kids' movie.""
