Johnny Depp considering Pirates 5, adding to $350 million payday

It doesn’t take a genius to guess why Disney would want a fifth Pirates of the Caribbean movie, what with the fourth instalment collecting over a billion dollars at the worldwide box office and becoming the seventh highest grossing film of all time.

Of course, any sequel – and its success – would hinge on the involvement of star (and only drawcard) Johnny Depp. The good news is that Depp is close to signing up for a fifth adventure, The Wrap reports.

Just in case you were wondering why Depp would consider a fifth Pirates film, take note that he has earned close to $350 million from the series so far.

Last month it was revealed that On Stranger Tides helmer Rob Marshall hadn’t decided whether or not he would like to return for a fifth film, and that Disney were considering Tim Burton, Sam Raimi, Shawn Levy and Alfonso Cuarón as replacements.

  1. If I hadnt seen this fourth one… I would say yes.
    But sadly, it put me off any further installments, with its clumsy stage-play-like script and performances. I mean… even the costumes were bad.

  2. I’ve just choked on my coffee. $350 million for one actor? Kudos to Depp and his agent for brokering such an arrangement. Smart man but gee gotta be greedy to do another one. I stopped viewing after the second one. Obviously a lot of people like it.

  3. If Disney want a fifth one, by all means go for it. It made $1B worldwide, so I don’t blame em, but honestly, #4 was pretty boring.

  4. yes i would love it they are fantastic films

  5. I don’t want Tim Burton anywhere near this franchise,

  6. Yes, definitely. One of the greatest actors around!

  7. Not sure what Gordon means by “#4 was pretty boring”. I enjoted ALL of the POC
