Following the great news the other day that David Venghaus (Pirates of the Carribean - Assistant Director) and Eric McLeod (Pirates of the Carribean - Executive Producer) announced that they would be joining the DevaShard Production as Executive Producer and Producer respectively, the press and blogs immediately started reporting on it, using the evocative title: "A Couple of Pirates Board the DevaShard Production".
Here are a few examples of the coverage:

As if we hadn't already had enough great news with David Venghaus (Assistant Director of Pirates of the Carribean) and Kevin Grevioux (co-creator, writer and actor in Underworld) coming on board the DevaShard project, I am now extremely happy to announce that one of the most successful Producers in Hollywood has confirmed he will be joining the DevaShard film project as Producer
Eric McLeod, Executive Producer of Pirates of the Carribean and producer of Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Tropic Thunder and the upcoming BioShock has yet to have a miss in Hollywood, producing successful films one after another, year after year.
Having handled enormous budget movies in the past with excellent results, studios, financiers and of course our own Fluid Comics all have great confidence in him to do a great job with the film.
You can see DevaShard listed at the top of Eric's IMDb page , as well as a list of all the many projects he's worked on over the years. I've put a short screen grab of it for reference here:
