TYBEE ISLAND, GA (WTOC) -

A meeting was held Friday morning on Tybee Island to go over the logistics of filming "Spongebob Squarepants 2".

The locations manager for the live action film confirmed that the lead pirate will be played by Antonio Banderas.

Production is scheduled to begin Sept. 30 on south Tybee beach near the pier. Filming is scheduled to wrap up on Nov. 5.

There has been an overwhelming response to casting calls for the Spongebob sequel. Earlier this week, crews were painting buildings on Broughton Street in downtown Savannah in preparation for the movie's filming.
