Johnny Depp up for PIRATES 5?

Thought Johnny Depp would have come to his senses by now and left the franchise known as THE PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN?  Well, apparently he’s thinking about doing the exact opposite.

According to the huge 2011 preview that has been released over at EW, not only do we learn that Depp once considered leaving the fourth film in the franchise, the upcoming Rob Marshall directed ON STRANGER TIDES, but that he has now switched his tune claiming that a fifth film is still very much in the cards. “As long as we can put all the puzzle pieces together, I would definitely consider it.”

The same man who has starred in such darlings as DEAD MAN and ARIZONA DREAM is now the closest thing to a logo that Disney has to something like Mickey himself. Never would have thought that would happen.

All joking aside, while this doesn’t mean that he’ll be in for a fifth film, it does bode well for those who actually want to see that happen. Personally, this franchise hasn’t worked for me since the second half of the first film despite Depp being an absolute blast to watch on screen. I still have relatively high hopes for STRANGER TIDES, but at this point my interest in Depp’s career has waned. When he’s not doing PIRATES films, he’s doing Tim Burton films, and vice-versa. Just not the interesting career we once thought this genuinely great actor would have had.
