Verbinski was quoted by the site with the following statement:
“Keith is definitely going to be in the third movieâ€¦ It’s a small part, but it’s a great part.”
So is he playing the father of Jack Sparrow? “No comment. To be interpreted.”
On top of that, if you did not read here that Johnny Depp has said he would not be against returning to the role of Captain Jack Sparrow in the future, so what did Verbinkis say when he was asked about a possible prequel and more Pirates films?
“We’re going to get a little bit of that in the third film, not so much in a flashback, but we’re going to start developing his relationship with the East Indian Trading Company and what happened there…”
“Right now, it’s about finishing the trilogy. After that, whatever happens happens. I think the benefit of doing the two films together is not just the benefit of managing your assets and amortizing certain costs, but it’s also about, when are you going to get the team back together? Because everyone’s so busy doing different things. So you can talk about a fourth movie, but right now it’s a lot of talk. It’s a nice sign that Johnny still wants to [do it]. That character fits so well. But, I think, for me you’ve got to look at the three-pack DVD and go, ‘Yeah, that’s a whole story.'”
