There's conflicting reports all over the internet this morning about Johnny Depp and Pirates 5! Some say he's signed on ... some say he's still in negotiations ... but I'm going with the story that he's signed on simply because that's the one I want to believe!! lol!
I love love LOVE! the pirates movies!! So I can't wait for this news to be confirmed! I wonder what Jack will get up to this time! :P But whatever it is I'm sure Disney have something awesome in store!
Johnny's been portraying the role of the infamous Captain Jack Sparrow for almost a decade in one of the most successful film franchises of all time! The Captain Jack attire is instantly recognizable across cultures and continents ... and everybody LOVES him! No wonder he's singing on for a 5th ... he's got to be making a mint! But what I love most about Johnny Depp is that I don't think the money matters as much to him as his love of the character of Captain Jack and the Pirates movies themselves. He has so much respect and adoration for his alter ego Pirate self, as depicted when he spoke to The Hollywood Reporter in May about the possibility of Pirates 5:
“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.”
Spot on Captain Jack! It's nice to have a bit of a gap between the movies ... it only makes for more excitement and anticipation for the next! And Johnny's right ... it definitely keeps them special :)
