Moviegoers should have seen it coming. “Pirates of the Caribbean 5,” that’s right, another “Pirates” movie, is already in the works. Johnny Depp is of course in talks of starring in the fifth installment. According to The Wrap, Depp earned an approximate $350 million off the last four movies in the franchise, giving him incentive to continue his role as Captain Jack Sparrow.
The newest movie in the franchise, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,” did very well in the box office making over $1 billion. The Wrap also reported that producer Jerry Buckheimer was working on the fifth “Pirates” script and wouldn’t make the movie without Depp.
The producers are hoping to attract Depp with another well-written script, and it helps that the last “Pirate” film left room for the story to continue. All in all, I think we can expect the “Pirate” movies to continue, and for Depp to take on the character of Capt. Jack Sparrow once more.Tags: Jack Sparrow, Jerry Buckheimer, Johnny Depp, Pirates of the Caribbean, Priates of the Caribbean 5, The Wrap
