“Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” hasn’t even hit theaters yet, but screenwriter Terry Rossio has already completed a script for a fifth installment of the franchise.
]]><![CDATA[With the cash cow that is "Pirates," it may seem like a no-brainer to
crank out the next film, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, there’s
one key ingredient that still needs to be added.
“It boils down to story, script and filmmaker,” Johnny Depp says
reprising his role as Captain Jack Sparrow once again. “It’s not
something where I would say, ‘Let’s shoot it next month to get it out by
Christmas 2012,’ we should hold off for a bit. They should be special,
just like they are special to me.”
Producer Jerry Bruckheimer is reportedly on board, so we imagine a fifth
film can’t be too far off. What do you think? Can the world handle
another ‘Pirates,’ or has the franchise moved past its prime?
You can see Depp star alongside Penelope Cruz when “Pirates 4” hits theaters on May 20th.
