Johnny Depp is set to reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates 4:
Disney recently announced that they are indeed developing a fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film and that series star Johnny Depp was set to reprise his role as daffy pirate Captain Jack Sparrow. As has long been suggested, Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) and Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley) will not be in the next film so how might the Pirates franchise go on without them?
Cinema Blend reports a rumor, which they stress is merely chatter from a reliable source about very early developments that could still change, the next Pirates might introduce the character of Jack Sparrow’s brother. They claim this role might be portrayed by one of two British comic actors: Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat, Sweeney Todd) or Russell Brand (Forgetting Sarah Marshall).
The site adds that Geoffrey Rush is expected to reprise his role as Sparrow’s pirate rival Barbossa and that Gore Verbinski is expected to return to direct. However, Cinema Blend’s scooper claims that should Verbinski not return then Depp’s longtime collaborator Tim Burton (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Edward Scissorhands) might helm it instead. Depp and Burton are currently re-teaming for their seventh film together, a hybrid live-action/performance-capture retelling of Alice in Wonderland.
