IF the filming of Pirates of the Caribbean 5 on the Gold Coast has got you in the mood for some plundering, you're in luck.

Trevor "Big Trev" Arbon, who has applied to be an extra in the film, is holding a Pirate Day at Tweed Heads' Jack Evans Boat Harbour on Sunday - and there will be plenty of treasure to get your hands on.

Mr Arbon said the event would celebrate the making of the film so close to the Tweed.

The Pirate Day event will run from 10am to noon and will include a treasure hunt, one-legged race and pirate dress-ups.

Those who turn out in their best scallywag gear will get a discount on hire from Big Trev's Watersports.

Mr Arbon said one of

the boats used in The Chronicles of Narnia film would be there on the day.

Mr Arbon hopes his previous movie extra experience stands him in good stead to be cast as a swashbuckling pirate.

"I'm hoping to get a call," he said.

At least two Tweed residents have already secured jobs on the production, which will start shooting early this year, but contractual agreements prevent them from discussing the film or their part in it.
