Currently in theaters (and still in the box office top five), THE PIRATES! BAND OF MISFITS follows the exploits of an inept group of sea-going rogues vying to win the coveted Pirate-Of-The-Year Award. Beautifully realized by the award-winning AARDMAN ANIMATION STUDIO, the film is rife with the kind of slapstick humor that appeals to kids as well the kind of witty dialog adults can relate to. Directed by PETER LORD and JEFF NEWITT from a screenplay by GIDEON DeFOE and features the voice talents of HUGH GRANT, SALMA HAYEK, MARTIN FREEMAN, IMELDA STAUNTON, ANTON YELCHIN and JEREMY PIVEN.
During our recent interview, LORD talked about why he wanted to make the movie and bridging the demographics with humor. (CLICK ON THE MEDIA BAR FOR AUDIO)
