The Hollywood Reporter says that Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides co-writer Terry Rossio has turned in his script to Disney for a possible fifth movie in the popular franchise.
It was Rossio’s first script for a “Pirates” movie written without Ted Elliot. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer is interested in making another film and the trade adds that the studio has approached director Rob Marshall to take on the next film as well.
But what about Johnny Depp? He doesn’t sound ready to start again just yet. Depp tells the trade he hasn’t seen the screenplay that Rossio turned in this weekend.
“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.”
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides opens in 3D, 2D and IMAX 3D theaters on May 20.
