For the past couple of weeks, we’ve been on a roller coaster ride of will he or won’t he with Johnny Depp and Disney. After the actor released a few cryptic statements regarding his involvement with the upcoming sequel Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, fans have been worried that he might not reprise the role of Captain Jack Sparrow. To make matters worse there’s even been speculation that the studio would replace Depp, if he didn’t return.
According to Cinemablend, a source from high up in the Disney ranks says that the actor will return for a fourth film as promised, but anything beyond that is up for debate. Just as we stated in our previous post, if the actor decides to reprise the role of Sparrow one more time it could be his last. They said that Depp is a man of his word and will honor his previous agreement with the studio for another sequel.
I personally think their pushing it with a fourth film let alone a fifth and sixth. If he doesn’t want to return to complete the new trilogy, Disney might as well scrap the whole idea. It won’t make sense without him. At the moment everything is up in the air and no definite decisions have been made, but stay tuned for the latest on the Pirates of the Caribbean soap opera.
Do you think Depp will return to Pirates 4? Should Disney forget about a 5th and 6th film?
