Come on, mateys, isn't there enough treasure to go around? Apparenrly, a Hollywood screenwriter is suing, well, everyone, involved with Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl.

TMZ.com has the report and states that Royce Mathew claims he "created and wrote a number of original works including drawings, screenplays, outlines, blueprints, storyboards and other original materials" in the 80s and 90s, which he "generally entitled "SNPM," standing for 'Super Natural Pirate Movie.'"

Hey, Royce, we ALL drew pictues of pirates as kids. But you don't see us filing any suits!

According to documents filed in the United States District Court, Central District of California, Royce alleges he created "various drawings depicting his pirate ship, which he named the Black Pearl, and an original design for a 'medallion,' both of which are are central elements of his screenplay." Royce says he registered the drawings and his screenplay with the U.S. Copyright Office.

There are other similiaries, Mr. Bitter Guy says. The screenplay evidently contained a blacksmith/swordsman named Will Turner, an eccentric pirate captain and a unique cursed crew whose nature was revealed only in the moonlight.

Of course, Johnny Depp has been quoted numerous times as claiming he invented Jack Sparrow's mannerisms, none of which were in the original script. And, remember, you can also trust a dishonest man to be dishonest.

Yarr, matey, don't be messing with Johnny Depp's gold! If you want to, you'll have to snare it loose from hit teeth.

The recently honored actor revealed that he'll be keeping the gold teeth sported by his character, Jack Sparrow - sorry, CAPTAIN Jack Sparrow - in his mouth until the third installment of Pirates is finished filming.

Such committment partly speaks to why Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest set an all-time record for Hollywood's biggest opening weekend â€" $132 million in ticket sales in its first three days! The waters, of course, are ideall were charted now for the third and final film, set to be called: Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End.

In a recent interview, Depp actually said he'd love to do a fourth and fifth version, but none are in the works.

We'll go ahead and say what everyone out there is thinking: that's pure rubbish!
