As ‘On Stranger Tides’ Passes $1 Billion, Johnny Depp Set To Return For ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean 5’

Betcha didn’t see this one coming.

The Wrap is reporting that superstar Johnny Depp is close to signing a deal that would see him returning to the role of Jack Sparrow for the currently untitled Pirates of the Caribbean 5.

The news comes just as the fourth film in the franchise, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, passed $1 billion worldwide in box office revenue, making it even less shocking than it was before the milestone was passes. The $250 million blockbuster only brought in $234 million domestically, but soared to just under $775 million overseas.

When news of a Pirates 4 was first announced it was said that Disney had plans for an entire new trilogy with Depp as Sparrow, with talks of the 5th and 6th movie being filmed together to save time and money. Some complications arose, but things worked out in the end (unless you hate the Pirates movies, of course) and all looks alive and well.

Last we heard, producer Jerry Bruckheimer said that work had already begun on the script for Pirates of the Caribbean 5, so it was really just waiting to see if they could score Depp one more time or not. And unless things go horribly wrong, it looks like we now have an answer to that question.
