Even though Depp says he won’t return to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, the actor says he hoped for a better ending for his character. He thinks it’s unfortunate he couldn’t give a “proper goodbye” to Captain Jack Sparrow and the franchise.
A few days ago, Depp proclaimed that he would refuse to do another “Pirates” film even if Disney paid him “$300 million and a million alpacas.” However, the comment was made well after he had been fired. He clarifies that his original intent was to continue playing Captain Jack Sparrow.
On Monday, Depp’s attorney sought to establish how Depp was still interested in making the sixth installment in the franchise in late 2018.
“My feeling was that these characters should be able to have their proper goodbye. There’s a way to end a franchise like that… I planned on continuing until it was time to stop.”
— Johnny Depp
The fifth “Pirates” film, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales,” was released in 2017. Plus, Depp says the creative team asked him to take part in writing the screenplay for the sixth “Pirates” movie.
