With the upcoming release of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest on July 7 and the third film in the franchise set to release in 2007 Johnny Depp said in a recent feature interview with Newsweek that he isn’t ready to label his days as Jack Sparrow over.
“He’s a blast to play,” he said to the news mag, “I’ll be in a deep, dark depression saying goodbye to him.” He laughs. “I’ll keep the costume and just prance around the house, entertain the kids.” Or the rest of the world. “Maybe ‘Pirates 4, 5 and 6’,” he says. “If they had a good script, why not? I mean, at a certain point, the madness must stop, but for the moment, I can’t say that he’s done.”
