Pirates of the Caribbean writer mentions snopes again
I got to see Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio at the Screenwriting Expo last weekend and was thrilled to hear my favorite website mentioned. Pretty much as in the interview linked above, Ted said that he had read the Blackbeard legend on snopes and thought it was such a great legend that it should be true. Terry added that he loved the fact that he'd only written one song in his life (the one inspired by snopes) and that song had been arranged by Hans Zimmer and sung by Keira Knightley. Some guys have all the luck! Anyway, they gave a great talk!
