Pirates just may rise again for fourth movie, Depp hints

TOKYO – Three journeys as Captain Jack Sparrow in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” may not be enough to quench the thirst of actor Johnny Depp.

Before the Tokyo premiere Wednesday of the series’ third installment, Depp said he would consider taking the oddball character out for one more spin.

“It’s been a great experience,” Depp said. “Trying to discover who Captain Jack was, getting slapped around by the Disney people – it was all fun.”

“Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End” premiered Wednesday in Tokyo.

Depp stars as the eclectic and mascara-fancying pirate Captain Jack Sparrow, who is rescued at the beginning of the movie from Davy Jones’ Locker, where he wound up last year at the end of “Dead Man’s Chest,” to begin a journey that takes the Black Pearl and its crew to, well, the end of the world.

The film completes what had originally been intended as a trilogy of movies based on the ride by the same name at Disneyland.

Depp, who was nominated for an Oscar for his quirky portrayal of Captain Jack, said the pirates may rise again.

“There was always that potential that each of us would have to say goodbye to the character,” Depp said. “But if it is over, which one never knows, Captain Jack will always be with me.”

Even so, producer Jerry Bruckheimer cautioned that no one will be jumping right back into the waters.

“This is the end for now,” he said. “I think everybody is exhausted and needs some time off. We’re all going to take a little break.”
