Adam Ant was originally cast as Dan but quit after losing patience with delays in production. Sting was then approached and wanted the role, but the producers insisted on an American actor. Martin Hewitt was finally cast. See more »

I'm sure I killed the last one I raped, it can't have been you.
Well, the afterplay was a bit on the rough side, but not fatal dear.

Not being an avid fan of the Monty Python gang, I thoroughly enjoy their "on-the-sides", such as the Time Bandits. Yellowbeard can also be classified as such and is, in my opinion, one of the funniest films ever made. The characterisation, the one-liners, the stereotypes, everything fits and hits where it is supposed to. The strange casting is one of the highlights of the film and I'm sure they all had a very good time making it.
Blues Brothers was not a highly regarded film in its early years but has gained some kind of "cult status". Yellowbeard is sure to follow that path.
