Depp Wants Time Before Next “Pirates” Film
According to The Hollywood Reporter, a fifth "Pirates of the Caribbean" film is in the works. The script has already been handed in by Terry Rossio, and now it's a waiting game to see when Disney will give the go-ahead.
One person hoping it isn't too soon til production is Johnny Depp, who plays Captain Jack Sparrow. While he loves the films, he hopes that there is a bit of a breather between the fourth and fifth films.
"It boils down to story, script and filmmaker. It's not something where I would say, ‘Let's shoot it next month to get it out by Christmas 2012. We should hold off for a bit. They should be special, just like they are special to me", Depp said.
