Another “Pirates of the Caribbean" movie appears to be on the horizon, but this bounty will be a well awaited treasure, if Johnny Depp has his way.
Scriptwriter Terry Rossio, who wrote for the first four movies, has concocted the next adventure for Cap’n Jack Sparrow, which was delivered to Disney sometime last week, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Lead man Depp hasn’t gotten a chance to read the screenplay yet, but he is ready to see what happens to the free-spirited pirate.
The actor told THR, “It boils down to story, script and filmmaker.”
He also went on to say, “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.”
In the meantime, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” releases on Friday, May 20 - the first of the “Pirates” movies that is in 3-D.
What is this I just heard Johnny is playing Tonto In the Lone Ranger???/
Depp has few acting success's of late other then the decidedly androgenus Capt.Jack.
But this last movie just released is beginning to look like it's suffering from too much Depp and not enough DEPTH.
Granted it supposed to be a fun scary adventure but with an overdose of Depp at the helm,this boats a head'n for the reefs,CapN!
Depp also looks like he's been loving himself too much lately cause the dude looks like he could give Charlie Sheen a run for his money and Depp ain't even doing any drugs!
Depp needs to get back to real people and off the Martian surface where he's been living lately.
Ya seen one ya have seen them all, sequels, run off, remakes are all the same.
The only two characters I can think of that have done more movies than Bond are Dracula and Godzilla.
Why does someone who is so attractive manage to look like a homeless person most of the time?
This guy is a horrible actor and these movies totally suck, yet, the ignorant masses continue to pump hundreds of millions of dollars into this franchise. Whatever happened to talent and quality?
I've enjoyed all three so far and look forward to the new one. I love this character and think there are alot of plots for it.
Hold off on the movie. you cant enjoy a movie like that in the middle of winter. release it at the end of spring/early summer. if anything viewers will be inspired to take vacations to the beach.

Come on jack sparrow vs. predator... (fingers crossed)
2012? E=mc2 is actually E=mc3, How far can you look into deep space? What types of black hole exist? Time travel, Dimension travel, Are past and future on the same platform? What is the motion of love? The perfect social structure! Can we change the past or the future? Evolution the truth, NYC, The Art of love making, all this+ at http://www.TheDimensionMachine.com
Number 5? I stopped paying attention after the second one. Why is it that they won't stop making movies for Pirates and Harry Potter and we can't get a decent Star Wars (or more) made? Its not a question of demand or there would be around 20 Star Wars films.
Special to him all the way to the bank.
I'm still waiting for KISS Meets The Phantom of The Park Part 2..!
3D will be awesome!!!
I wish though they would be juuust a liiitle original. Feels more like a soap opera in a big screen. I can not argue though from the business side. 3dmovies rock!
Our theatres don't give us the option to watch in 3D. It's either pay $14 for a movie ticket, or get out of the building.
How about Cpt Jack Sparrow, the Mummy and Austin Powers in Part 6? Mummy and Daddy weren't there! LOL
@N, same here, good point watched 1. I never shoulda said all sucked. Just figured they DID
i really dont watch those movies & i only seen one but depp needs to perform & not be a lazy a$$.
I'm just very Happy that they cast Penelope Cruz in this one (it 'should be' the best marraige ever), she's a good actress, crazy like Depp, should REALLY be a Good Combination (let's hope the Writer delivers a Good Story..
Two comments. First, i cannot believe cnn allowed some of the outrageous posts here, but denied my calm, polite and intelligent posts which happened to cast some aspersions on the actions and honesty of the government. Second, i am a fan of the pirates series and of mr depp. The story is a lighthearted adventure aimed at children, but with adult humor in various places to keep the parents attending the movies with their kids from being bored to tears. If you dont like it, dont watch it. That simple.
This movie is better
I just beat portal 2 for the ps3
Some nutbar has a fascination with horses. Beastiality has finally made its way onto the CNN blogs!! Before it was just gay fruits, you know...the pillow biters and also da lezbos! This freak just wants to talk horses, mainly cuz he has seen the internet vids and the size of da schlongs! Get a life you picker!!
Gary sent this incoherent comment at 1046pm tonight: "two or five hours so what. its johnny depp. now what do u say there roll me red carpet out there chum. an quite on the set. jacksonville beach man".
What the hell?? Give me some context...I have no clue what you are saying. Are you stoned, or just plain stupid? Your butt buddy must have slammed your pooper so hard, you brain is still jiggling around inside that super-sized melon! What a nutbar........
Depp is washed up like osama on the shores of the arabian sea!
Dude, I think you got your rants mixed up. The political tirade for conspiracy theory racists are on the politics board. Actors are paid by private companies, not the government. But then again, maybe its all of Obama's socialist (or is it Islamic terrorist in your world?) plan to force us all to watch pirate movies and then we'll all become God hating Communist . Damn you, Johnny Depp! Hey, InMe, go put your tin foil hat on and try contacting the mother-ship again. Maybe they can teach you to spell.
Pay our troops more! Actors are over payed! America got osama, show us the $$$!
What a ridiculous comment (surprise). Every time you feel like going to the movies, why not just send your $14 to the USO and call it a day? If it'll make you feel better. For me, I want to see a movie - I already pay for the military through my taxes.
Pirates 1-4 sucked too!
do u want cheese wit that wine...sometimes when u fall in love with a story,book, character..u don't want the story to end..as long as there are fans u can't stop them from continuing the story..supply&demand.
johnny is quite fond of milking horse cok. i watched him do it on a dairy farm outside wausota wiscinsin when he was 17 yo. he got it all over his hands and then wiped it on his shirtfront. he thought no one was watching. i was watching.
Will there be Somalian pirates in the movie?
Hey, its been a few years, isn't this franchise about ripe for a "reboot". C'mon, what are they waiting for? With the attention span the target demographic has these days, they probably have already forgotten the original, and it could be the first "reboot" to be released while one of the original series is still in theaters. They already have the "new" Spiderman in the works, whats holding them up on this one??? The new one MUST have giant robots, more explosions, and spur of the moment musical numbers. All the dialogue will have to be subtexted onto the screen in text speak, and no scene can last over 14 seconds, it will lose their attention.
Awsome! Another pirates movie! I can't wait to see what captain jack sparrows new journey is!
Somebody said this has Penelope Cruz in it. Please, say it ain't so.
That said, this series of movies is probably my all-time favorite, and I hope they keep making them as long as they're good.
Alright check it out 3d or 2d who cares your gonna watch it any ways or you wouldnt be talking about it and penelope cruz is a dime piece and seems to be a little out of place in this movie but a good addition also sequels can go either way and we as the public will watch it and even if the movie is "amazing" somebody will have something bad to say about it
You fools why would you want to wach such a boring movie jhonny depp is like a used bullet you cant used it twice.
1) It's JOHNNY! Please get it right!
2) The last I've heard, I'm allowed to watch anything I wanted boring or otherwise. Who made you the movie police?
3) Johnny Depp could sit and read the phone book for all I care and I would love the whole thing.
So stick it where the sun doesn't shine!
Hey I think all the Prirates of the carribean was pretty good!! For 1.) Its Disney and the kids loves it and my grandkids loves it too!! 2.) It gets pretty tiring of watching a lot of violent and drama. 3.) The way the economy is now these days. I'm sure we all could use a few good laughs now and then.
Pirates vs Doctor Who! Oh, wait. . .they're doing that this Saturday.
two hours or five hours so what. its johnny depp. now what do u say there roll me red carpet out there chum. an quite on the set. jacksonville beach man.
Woooot! I love the pirates movies!!
Well anyways check out my new youtube channel and subscribe if you like. http://www.youtube.com/user/MikeSosnow
I didn't want to see it when I heard Penelope Cruz was in it. However, my mind was changed when I saw they cast Ian McShane as Blackbeard. I will put up with her for him!
I can't see in 3D, and wouldn't pay that exorbitantly high price they charge anyway. IF I see it, I'll wait until it's on t.v. But that's got as much do with it having Cruz in it as anything. I just don't like her. The other movies were ok.
Wow.....I love these movies-Pirates of The Caribbean-Johnny Depp is a fantasic actor- I personally cant hardly wait for each new sequel!! These are great family movies!!
I love the Pirates movies but I also can't believe that there are so many stories that can be told based on one ride in Disney World! I personally cannot watch 3D without ending up with a headache, but the local movie theaters around me will only stock 1 version so I guess I need to decide to either brave the headache, or wait the 4 months it will take until it is out on Blu-Ray. I really wish that Orlando Bloom or Kiera Knightley were a continued part in this series though. I think that the trio made up the perfect chemistry... Savvy??
Can't remember who bought who but when one major movie company bought the other this movie was in the pre-production phase and the budget got cut in half by the pruchasing company. In short there wasn't enouhg money for all 3 people plus filming cost and other talent.
Hi am a CNN fan I love how you guys report your information from world to entertainment this blog about Jhonny Depp is that suppost to be a joke the pirates of the carribean script writer isn't giving Jhonny Depp a head role.
You can't spell Johnny? Wow someone is dumb. Jhonny sounds like a Jersey shore name. Yo! J honey! Der!
ok so, I personally LOVE all of the other Pirates of the Caribbean movies! Although this movie might be bad, or it might be amazing. I also think people should judge a movie when you haven't even seen the whole movie and just seen the comercials. I think that this movie will be AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also I love all the actors and actresses in the Pirates of the Caribbean movies!!!!!!!!!!!
I luv jack sparrow and i cant wait 2 see the latest and i really hait 3d
Enough with these lousy sequels..the first was fun and the rest are just boring
Unfortunately, enough people completely disagree with you (I'm not one of them), so they keep churning them out. Enough people stop going, then they'll stop making them.
Funny how you are complaining about this movie people. You watched the first three and you'll watch this one too.
Haha, so true
Please tell me that there is a 2d version of this movie...i dont mind 3d but i dont love it. and it would throw off watching all the pirates movies in order when it hits dvd.
I didn't even like the previous 3 movies.
Yet you'll read and post in an article about it?
I love all the movies and I think it should be special. Don't need to waste my movie on some bull crap movie that look good on previews but suck when you see them. But never happened with my Johnny
Oh no, MY Johhny!
Yes! Cant wait to see it, buy it!!! Love Depp, Captain Jack Sparrow ! Muah.
This movie royal sucked after the first one...4 movies(3 hours)= time you can never get back.
C'mon...we know they're trying to surpass the Harry Potter franchise.
I am a true pirates fan. I can't wait!
OMG - They should make it Pirates vs Ninjas. That's what I wanna see. :D
That would be real ultimate power!!
It depends on how the series of movies is handled. Rocky, Twilght, James Bond, etc.. sequels are all at different stages in the story of the book or character the movie is based on or derived from. If anyone overdid it was the Friday 13th movies – how many ways can you say an over-ripe corpse is out for revenge.
Ruined the pirates by putting Penelope Cruz in it. Yuck!!
Amen!! Preach on! I don't know if I'll watch this one for that very reason, she just 'irks' me. I like the other movies, but not enough to sit through two hours of her.
Nah – I'm looking forward to this one the most. Ian McShane is supreme.
Sry guys can't get enough of the Depp he still does enjoy the series he works for so till that blows up let there be a pirates for all to see with midgets weilding hand cannons and parrots yelling "walk the plank."movies arelike zombies you gotta shoot them in the heaed to stop them from shooting themselves in the foot lol much less respawning
How about another friday movie with chris tucker
We should have the next one be Jack Sparrow Vs the Somali Pirates. Rubber dingies, AK-47's and rocket launchers VS the Black Pearl.
That's an awesome idea. Pirates time travel.
Wasn't the old movie "the Ice Pirates" a pirate time travel movie? It was so long ago I can't remember, early 70s I think. Uh oh, my nerdness is showing through.
I think it was Time Bandits. The time traveling pirate movie that is.
Wait for it.......comments already about seaman and butts....here comes a fieces comment....
What is this fieces word you use? Is that like felching? I am not hip to your gay lingo and I fear to say fill me in. I suppose I'll be left in the dark about this strange and mysterious word.
Ya know, where the red butt monkey throws seamen and fieces at the crew.
Wow. Enough with the 3d already. We get it, how about movies that can stand on acting and content alone...
I love how people complain about 3D. There is the option to watch in 2D too! There are still movies that stand on content and acting alone. Look outside the box. This is a blockbuster, of course they are going to try 3D.
If you're wearin' an eye patch it's in 2D. Yar.
Actually, the option to view it in 2d are few and far between. I'd need to drive out to the suburbs to see many 2d films that have a 3d version available. Most theaters only stock 1 version, and most theaters have agreements where not every theater nearby is showing the same movie as them.
Agreed. Do we really need a movie about a tail-less dolphin in 3D? I don't think so.
Can't we have it in black and white? Im sick and tired of color.
>May 5, 2011 at 5:19 pm
>If you’re wearin’ an eye patch it’s in >2D. Yar.
Lols so true!
@yar. Thanks man, best comment on this board.
really.....gay pirate lore?
Well obviously not all franchises, but I definetly don't think this one should've gone past trilogy status.
Die hard 4 was better than 3.
We don't speak of Die Hard 3 *shudder*. We'll just pretend it never happened and rename Die Hard 4 as the third one.
Remember when franchises would die after only 2 sequels?
That is not true, there are 4 lethal weapons, I cant even remember how many Die Hard Movies, the Bourne movies, Superman, Batman, Geez, I can go on and on for ever!! Star Wars???
Hey, at least it doesn't involve high-school students... well, I guess they somehow manage to call it "singing", despite all good sense.
X = Cost of making a movie
Y = Movie gross earning
If Y > X, they make the movie.
The plot being tired or the story being bad don't factor into the equation.
23 James Bond movies, and counting.
How can we forget Rocky, The Godfather, Rambo.
The original PLANET OF THE APES spawned four sequels, a TV series, a Saturday morning cartoon, a remake, and now another remake. Excluding the original, most of what came after was terrible.
