“Pirates 5” script turned in, but is Johnny Depp on board?


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: We haven’t even seen the latest “Pirates of the Caribbean” film, “On Stranger Tides,” and talk already has floated toward a fifth possible installment in the franchise.

But it isn’t just talk. “Pirates” screenwriter Terry Rossio already has turned in a script for a fifth film to Disney, and the studio reportedly has approached “Tides” director Rob Marshall about returning to the franchise for another voyage, THR reports.

So “Pirates 5” is a go, right? Well, not so fast. There wouln’t be any “Pirates” franchise without Johnny Depp in the lead role of Capt. Jack Sparrow, and the actor, according to the report, might want to put a little distance between the installments to keep them feeling special to the “Pirates” team and its fans.

“It boils down to story, script and filmmaker,” Depp told THR. “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.”

That’s sweet that Depp thinks it boils down to story and script. Truthfully, it boils down to box office, and if crowds come out to support “Stranger Tides,” and are clamoring for more Jack Sparrow, you can bank on Disney opening the vault for Depp to keep this franchise afloat.
