Antonio Banderas will play a pirate in the upcoming "SpongeBob SquarePants" sequel, which starts filming along the Georgia coast in the new few weeks, The Savannah Morning News reported Friday.

"SpongeBob SquarePants 2," the follow up to 2004's animated film, will shoot a series of live-action scenes featuring Banderas on Tybee Island Sept. 30 and in Savannah on Oct. 6.

“This is going to be one of those films that every kid in the world is going to want to see and their parents are going to have to take them,” Jay Self, of the Savannah Downtown Business Association, said earlier this year.

The first film's live-action scenes starred David Hasselhoff. It grossed $140 million worldwide.

"Spongebob Squarepants 2" will hit theaters Feb 13, 2015.
