Depp Doesn’t Discount the Idea of ‘Pirates 4, 5 and 6’


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.”

Pirates 3, which according to Jim Hill Media is tentatively titled Pirates of the Caribbean: World’s End, is set to hit theaters on May 27, 2007 and if you want a spoiler filled synopsis just follow that link.

The two new films were shot back-to-back, a la the Matrix sequels, and will feature everyone from the previous film along with a whole new crop of characters including Bill Nighy as Davy Jones. Speaking of Jones, Ain’t It Cool News scored some new pics of Jones’ crew and they are far from conventional, click here to take a peek.

With a summer that has already given us The Da Vinci Code and X-Men 3 and the upcoming Superman Returns I wonder if it comes as a surprise when Newsweek offers up the following statement:

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest, which opens on July 7, will likely be the highest-grossing movie of summer. And judging from Newsweek’s first look in the editing room, it also promises to be a welcome blast of sunshine in a season when Cruise has crashed and burned, and The Da Vinci Code has proved a joyless blockbuster.

Who knows, we’ll have to wait and see. Take a peek at a larger look at the Newsweek cover below.
