THE second day of filming for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales continues today at Hastings Point, Northern NSW.

Crowds of fans are expected to converge at the entrance of the headland, in the hopes of catching another glimpse of the film's star lead - actor Johnny Depp - who spent over an hour greeting fans last night after a long day on set.

Optimistic television crews with helicopters and paparazzi have also descended on the sleepy seaside village.

However a publicist could not confirm or deny if Mr Depp, who plays Captain Jack Sparrow, will show.

Pottsville resident Wendy Pluckrose, who braved the rain to meet and chat with Mr Depp last night, recommended for keen residents to take a punt.

"The meet and great was such a treat," she said.

"Like yesterday, I think you are able to stick around, you never know (if Mr Depp will show)."

The film's publicity agent told the Tweed Daily News Disney productions have found Hastings point a "glorious filming" location, and its residents welcoming.

The film's production crew and cast will stay at the Mantra resort, Kingscliff, until tomorrow, when filming is expected to cease and the set will be taken down and returned to Village Roadshow studios on the Gold Coast.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is due for release in 2017.
