Money speaks louder than critics.
While most vehemently disliked Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, the film did gross over $1 billion at the global box office. Naturally, this has sparked talk of yet another installment, with sources telling The Wrap Johnny Depp is close to signing on.
Producer Jerry Bruckheimer is reportedly revising a script as we type.
Back in January, Depp said he'd be up for a fifth turn as Captain Jack Sparrow “as long as we can put all the puzzle pieces together." If those pieces are a contract and a script, they are most definitely coming together.
So, we hope, is another Michael Bolton tribute to the sea-faring hero.
