Arrrrgh you looking for something fun to do this Friday
afternoon? Then why not head on over to +Sony at 1 p.m. PT / 4 p.m. Where you
can join in on a Google+ Hangout session, where Peter Lord -- the

that Lord (who is "Pirates!" director & producer) might answer
your question live as part of this
online event. If you'd like to have your
questions answered live during this Hangout session, visit Sony's Google+ page
and submit them in the comments section of this post. (You've got to have a

Better yet, Peter will
be joined online by a motley crew of industry experts and fans to discuss the film's

Does that sound like a swashbuckling good way to spend a Friday afternoon? If your answer is a
resounding "Aye!," then be sure and head on over for the "Pirates! Band of Misfits" Google+ Hangout at 1
p.m. PT / 4 p.m. ET.
Love your site and your articles but I am a little disappointed that there is no mention of Rich Ross stepping down today at Disney... I dont really have a interest in finding out how to meet a non disneys film director. I hope to see some awesome articles with great insight soon!
EDITOR'S NOTE: This news broke less than three hours ago. I've been working the phones ever since I first got the heads up about Ross' ouster. Given that I'm supposed to be doing the Sony Hangout in less than an hour now, I'm kind of limited in what I can do / post until that event is over later this afternoon. So if you could maybe hang in there until this previously scheduled thing is wrapped, I'll see what I can post then, okay?
variety.com has a pretty decent article about it up.
