Richards: "Like a gunslinger"
Johnny Depp, whose swishy swashbuckler has charmed his way through three Pirate films, has exoressed his willingness to wear the hat again. According to Entertainment Weekly, a fourth film in the franchise would likely be a spin-off following the outrageous adventures of Captain Jack Sparrow, who is credited by many as the reason behind the films' success. Whether or not the other cast members would be interested is still open, but Depp has already let it slip he'd be willing.

"As long as you're doing it for the right reasons, why not?" said Depp. "If we came up with a story where we could explore something absurd or funny or totally insane." Those particular adjectives sum up Sparrow well. With the right script and a director willing to be a little outrageous, a fourth movie has potential.

On the subject of "outrageous," speaking of working with screen dad Keith Richards, Depp said, "What I didn't expect was he was going to be such a great actor. It was like a gunslinger who arrived in the town, charmed all the women and impressed all the men and then split."

Of course, any real speculation will depend on the success of "PotC: At World's End," which will be opening Thursday, May 24th in some areas. A lackluster take will surely quash any plans of another sequel, and a good haul doesn't guarantee those plans would be made. Still, money feeds the Mouse, and even a DTV would be sure to rake in cash for Disney.
