Depp talks Pirates 4

Jun. 22, 2009by: Jenna Busch

I got to sit in front of Johnny Depp today. My job does not suck. During the press day for PUBLIC ENEMIES today, Depp talked a little about his upcoming projects. He's definitely up for PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN 4, though there isn't a story yet.

He was asked about playing the character for the fourth time and he joked, “Call me a glutton if you want...virtually no cinema is perfect. PIRATES 1 had it's own thing. 2 and 3 I suppose had their own thing. It got a little confusing here and there...I heard that. (laughs) I think, for me, because I love the character so much and I enjoyed playing the character so much, and people seem to like it, so if there's an opportunity to try it again...you know, it's like going up to bat. You want to get back out there and try and try and try and see what you can do. I enjoy playing the character of Jack very much.”

He laughed, “At this point I'm trying to turn it into a Beckett play. It could be anything at this point. Jack could be in some geisha clothing. I don't know. We could explore a lot of possibilities." I know the last one sucked, but it's still Jack Sparrow, he still wears eyeliner and I will still shell out the dough to see him swagger, even if I have no idea what is going on.

Personally, I've been dying to see him as Tonto in the upcoming LONE RANGER remake. Especially after the had him parade on stage at the Disney press day last year as Jack Sparrow to announce his role. He told us, “I think, we're sort of in the beginning stages, so there's all kinds of possibilities, but I feel like I have some good ideas for the character that I don't think have been done all that much before...” Can Tonto be shirtless the entire time? Is that one of the ideas? I'd like to suggest it.

Just saying...

Caustiously optimistic

I agree Jenna, I would shell out $ just to see Johnny ( not just cuz he's a hot pirate!!) but honestly my favorite part of 3 was Jack stuck in Davy Jones Locker! probably the weirdest part of the movie. Maybe they will keep it with just jack and a NEW cast of Characters. I'm a little tired of the current set.

What other pirate movies are there?

Going to side with the positive crowd here. The Pirates trilogy might not be perfect golden form of film-making but: 1. They have a great actor that created one of the most memorable characters in recent movie history.
2. The movies don't look cheap. The huge budget that these movies need to be made, you can see it up on the screen.
3. They built a world that was fun to watch and be immerse in. A world where Davy Jones, a kraken, haunted pirate ships exists.
4. Personal Note: introduced the

4. Personal Note: introduced the world to the beanpole hotness of Keira Knightly.

It honestly could have been worse since the source inspiration was a Disneyland ride. Look to: The Country Bears.

So if Depp is enthusiastically excited about doing another, and honestly, I don't think you can say Depp is the type of actor to "cash-in" or just go by his good looks, so I say why not.

Cap Jack!

At least Depp responds to the reaction to 3.

Yes, Pirates 3 kinda sucked, but if they realize it and correct the problems, how can we resist another adventure?

1 was the only good one in the series the last two were so bad, and its sad that millions of dollars were waisted on them.

This is awesome. Yeah the sequels were confusing at times and the story could have been better but they were still fun for me. I really hope they don't bring back orlando bloom though. For me the only thing that sucked about the sequels was that love story. Getting married on the ship during an epic battle made me groan. Lets bring back the crew and Barbosa and it will be fun. I already can't wait. As for the directer...I don't know. Michael Bay maybe? Seems like his type of movie. Lots of

I agree with jolanar

If they would've cut out the wasted half hour with the cannibals in the second one, I think that it would be just as good as the first.

Likewise with At World's End, cut out 4 or 5 triple-backstabs, and it's great.

That said, I enjoy all three films (though I do skip past the cannibals), and look forward to a fourth.

And hasn't Verbinski officially dropped out?

Both of the sequels really only suffer from being way too long. Aside from that they were both great.

Pirates and the Matrix are two sets of trilogies whose 3rd films get unfair bashings when their second ones were far worse.

Pirates 2 was one long pointless action sequence that tried to continue on a story that had already tied itself up. The third one was a major imporvement with some great visuals but still didn't match the first one. At least it tied up all the loose ends the second one left in it's wake.

It also managed to cut out all the dead wood characters that nobody cared

The only one people wanted to see was Johnny Depp and the map at the end was a great opening for a spin off.

No matter how bad the series got Jack Sparrow didn't lose his appeal and i think he definitely has the power to hold up a feature film solely by himself.

I'd wager it would be pretty good if they did it right.

Good to hear. I agree that three and two weren't as good as the first, but if Depp's still Sparrow, I'll be in the theater. It would be interesting to see how a different director would handle a pirates film... but if I wished for that, the studio would get some hack like Ratner, I'm sure.

About the eyeliner

Were eyeliner and dreadlocks a pirate thing during the 1700:s? I don't think so.

Pirates 3 is far superior to the second one. The second one was too goofy, although I still liked it a lot.

SO Jenna, get a clue.

Obviously the third one didn't suck or I wouldn't have liked it. I will be looking forward to the fourth installment.

I second that Jenna! And lucky you to be in the same room as Depp! Love the man!
