Capt. Jack Sparrow aka Johnny Depp isn’t spending his nights on any pirate ship or hotel but rather in an $8.1-million Diamond Head-Kahala digs…According to InTouch magazine, Depp’s summer home during the filming of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides rents for $5,000 a night. The 9,900 square-foot single story house has six bedrooms, eight full baths, a gym, infinity pool, hot tub, and game room on the 31,000 square-foot property. InTouch says the house is “located on the most coveted strip of coastline in the Pacific…in the center of the most prestigious neighborhood on Oahu’s South Shore”…Annual property taxes are $29,000…



Depp, 47, has been living  in the house since late June with a friend. His longtime partner, actress/singer Vanessa Paradis, 37, and their children, Lily Rose, 11, and Jack, 8 are not here…

















HAWAII FIVE-0 STAR ALEX O’LOUGHLIN SAYS “THERE’S SOMETHING SPECIAL ABOUT (THE SHOW)”


HAWAII FIVE-0 PILOT HAS NO TITLE BUT IT’S REFERRED TO AS SIMPLY THE “PILOT.” SUBSEQUENT EPISODES WILL HAVE HAWAIIAN TITLES




At the Hawaii Five-0 press event yesterday in Los Angeles, series star Alex O’Loughlin when asked if he’s more confident that his new series would do better better than his previous two CBS series, Moonlight and Three Rivers, he said “Yeah, I do. I don’t want to take anything away from the other shows I’ve done… But the team behind this…the two men here who are at the helm of this show, Peter (Lenkov) and Alex (Kurtzman), and the writing staff that we have, everyone feels so capable. I read the pilot, I did the pilot, and I saw what they did with it. And there’s something special about it. If this one doesn’t go, I’m completely bewildered.  I have no idea how television works at all”…




Executive producer Alex Kurtzman told the media that “The show is very light-hearted. A lot of it has to do with the banter between McGarrett and Danno…This is a show that’s meaningful to me because it’s a show my dad and I would sit down together every week and watch. In hearing the story there was the spirit of ‘Five-0,’ which is about a family…it’s an honest, good reason to come into the show”…



The producer emphasized that the new Five-0 is not a remake but a reboot…



“‘Remake’ suggests doing the exact same thing again,” said Kurtzman, one of the writers on last year’s Star Trek reboot. “In our experience doing Star Trek, you have to find the spirit of what the original franchise was about and really be true to it and expand on it and bring it into modern times with whatever rules will govern it. We had to make sure we stayed true to the spirit of the show but brings something new to the table that a modern audience would recognize. That’s why the word ‘reboot’ feels more appropriate”…






Hawaii Five-0 co star already has a second gig next year if the new series falters. Caan, son of actor James Caan, plays the cocky agent on HBO’s Entourage this season…”I’ll be back next year, but I think that’s the last season,” Caan told the media in New York…



The outspoken Caan also let slip that he wasn’t initially happy intially when he discovered he had to go to Hawaii to film Hawaii Five-0…“I’m born and raised in L.A. and I like it. I didn’t want to leave…But now I’m getting anxiety about wanting to get back”…




In the pilot which was also shown to some Hawaii media yesterday, Caan and O’Loughlin have great chemistry and whose characters immediately clash when they meet. Asked how the off screen friendship is developing, O’Loughlin  said “It was an instant bromance”…

HAWAII FIVE-0 PILOT REPORTEDLY COST $8 MILLION; SECOND IN HAWAII ONLY TO THE LOST PILOT WHICH COST AN ESTIMATED $12 MILLION




Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides continues filming all over Oahu – that’s a lot of work for location manager Randy Spangler – but this week’s shoot in Heeia on windward Oahu brought out a slew of fans hoping to catch a glimpse of Capt. Jack Sparrow which they did as he was being shuttled to the set by a long line of people…Depp was his usual affable, smiling self waving to fans and asking the driver to even slow down so the fans could get a better look…

P4 filmed last week on the rocks in east Oahu near Halona Blowhole featuring Depp, and co stars Penelope Cruz and Geofrey Rush
