Pirates of the Caribbean
Newsweek has begun to give an ample amount of attention to Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and the entire franchise in general while it claims Disney has finally found their own buried treasure.
In a very comprehensive report on the franchise, Newsweek meets up with Johnny Depp to discuss his character, his history and the future of being a pirate.
With the report comes tons of good news.
Pirates Talk with Depp
Newsweek kicks off their report on Pirates of the Caribbean with some great news. Like AintitCool (here), Newsweek has also screened some of the film and, judging by what they saw, are predicting Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest to be the biggest box office hit of the summer.
The report then goes on to discuss the meaning of 'fame' with Depp and, for a page or two, loses my interest. Just before the article closes out, however, they get some interesting information direct from the mouth of Depp; who loves being a metro-sexual pirate by the way.
Depp's not ready to let go of Captain Jack just yet. "He's a blast to play," he says. "I'll be in a deep, dark depression saying goodbye to him." He laughs. "I'll keep the costume and just prance around the house, entertain the kids." Or the rest of the world. "Maybe 'Pirates 4, 5 and 6'," he says. "If they had a good script, why not? I mean, at a certain point, the madness must stop, but for the moment, I can't say that he's done."
Based on how Pirates 2 is turning out and the amount of work Disney is putting into Pirates 3, the franchise just may have the strength to go beyond a trilogy.
