Disney has a Pirates 5 script; Johnny Depp not interested in doing it… yet

Disney has a Pirates 5 script; Johnny Depp not interested in doing it… yet
Clint


I’m seeing “Pirates of the Caribbean : On Stranger Tides” next week (because I have to; not because I want to – those two sequels put me right off the franchise) and I’m hoping, really hoping, that it’s akin to the original film – or in the very least, the ride. And I mean that. A plotless but punchy and short boat ride beats anything in “At Worlds End” or “Dead Man’s Chest”.
Disney must be confident they’ve another hit on their hands though – they’ve already got a script for a fifth “Pirates” ready to go.
Johnny Depp, on the other hand, isn’t as keen to don the mascara again just yet.

“Pirates” scribe Terry Rossio tells THR he’s delivered the “Pirates 5” script to Disney and it’s now in their capable hands.

Depp tells the outlet that he’s up for another Caribbean ‘cruise’ but not just yet.

“It boils down to story, script and filmmaker,” Depp tells THR. But the actor isn’t clamoring to jump back into the puffy shirt until a little time has passed after Pirates 4. He didn’t relish the brutal schedule that saw him making Pirates 2 and Pirates 3 back-to-back in order to meet studio-mandated release dates in summer 2006 and 2007, respectively.

“It’s not something where I would say, ‘Let’s shoot it next month to get it out by Christmas 2012,'” he says. “We should hold off for a bit. They should be special, just like they are special to me.”.

I’d like to know if Depp considers the past two “Pirates” films ‘Special’? Just askin’
