Crews set up for SpongeBob filming on Tybee

Posted: Updated:

Crews are getting ready on Tybee Island to start filming the SpongeBob Squarepants sequel. Friday, production staff were testing all equipment making sure everything is ready, including the movie's most interesting prop, the pirate ship.

The ship, which was being tested Friday, is supposed to be captained by the one and only Aantonio Banderas.

The locations manager tells us the ship is supposed to come from the water in a beach scene.

Businesses say they expect a boost in sales, not just from the hype, but from the crew as well.

"I'm hoping that from the crew and the extras and everyone else who will come. We have such good food anyways," says Spanky's manager Melanie White.  "Naturally, I would assume that they would want to come eat with us."

The filming, beginning Monday will be contained to the beach.
