Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow
Johnny Depp is most recently known for his famous role as Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean movie franchise, to which the world knows him for his swashbuckling charm, willing to risk life and limb in search of hidden treasure, or the chance to re-claim his place as captain of The Black Pearl. Jack Sparrow's quick wit and charismatic charm allows him to slip effortlessly from perilous danger to seamlessly escape countless life-threatening situations. This role as Captain Jack Sparrow has only cemented Johnny Depp's fame as a household name throughout the world.
Johnny Depp's predicted success of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, is anticipated to pull in enough dough to warrant yet another Pirates of the Caribbean film with none other than Captain Jack Sparrow at the helm. The script has apparently already been delivered to Disney, but Johnny Depp has told The Hollywood Reporter to "...hold off for a bit" before shooting another Pirates movie because, "They should be special, just like they are special to me." But, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Johnny Depp is not opposed to reprising the role as Jack Sparrow - he just doesn't desire to work the grueling schedule set forth back when he filmed both Pirates 2 & Pirates 3 back-to-back. More details on this story can be read here.
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides is to be released in movie theaters on Friday, May 20, 2011.
