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.

Would you go see Pirates of the Caribbean 5?

Captain Jack is (almost) back.

On May 20, Johnny Depp will reprise the role that truly made him an icon, as he steps back into the swashbuckling shoes of Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. We've got an early look at a scene from the movie here:

The fourth installment of this franchise will find Jack and Barbossa seeking the Fountain of Youth.  Along the way, Depp's beloved character will meet a former flame, as seen above and played by Penelope Cruz.

"What's most interesting about Pirates 4 is you don't have to connect the dots for these subplots and sub-characters," Depp told USA Today. "It felt like a fresh, clean slate."

Neither Orlando Bloom nor Keira Knightley appears in the film. Check out two more scenes from the blockbuster HERE and HERE.

Even though certain people thought Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest was awful, disjointed, nonsensical and a slap in the face to the original - there's no denying the film's commercial success.

With that in mind, Entertainment Weekly recently sat down with the captain of it all: Johnny Depp. Here is an excerpt:

You agreed to do the first Pirates film without even seeing a script. Didn't the potential cheese factor of a movie based on a theme park ride turn you off a bit?

No. I don't know why â€" ordinarily it probably would. When I said yes to it, my agent Tracy Jacobs' head spun around like she was going to need traction.

A lot of people were surprised at the idea of you doing a big Disney movie in the first place.

People made more of a big deal about that than I thought was necessary, at least from my perspective. If you look back, Disney has done some amazing things. I was just interested in exploring. I didn't at that point have any idea of how far to explore.

It turned out you explored a lot further than Disney anticipated. Was the studio's reaction to your performance as panicked as legend has it?

Oh, boy. Listen, I ended up at a meeting, at the age of 39 or whatever, going in to meet with Disney executives â€" I mean, these guys push and pull billions of dollars around everyday â€" and the topic of conversation was my teeth, the eyeliner, and the beads hanging from my beard. I was expecting that someone somewhere along the line would have a problem. It seems that all they're ever looking for is the poster boy. I just thought, ''Hey man, I'm the old guy. You've got Orlando and Keira â€" that's a stunning poster. You don't need me.''
Did director Gore Verbinski have your back?

Gore took the brunt of it initially. They kept calling Gore saying, ''You've got to do something about Depp. You've got to talk to him.'' Gore, bless his heart, said, ''Look, I happen to like it. If you want to talk to him, you talk to him. I ain't doing it.'' He stood his ground. And my agent, poor thing, was getting calls from Disney saying, ''What the hell is going on? He's ruining the movie.'' Finally, I just made the call to them and said, ''Look, you hired me to do the gig. If you didn't see the stuff I've done before, that's irresponsible on your part. You had to have some idea of where I was going to go. If you don't like it, you can fire me.''

Such committment partly speaks to why Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest set an all-time record for Hollywood's biggest opening weekend â€" $132 million in ticket sales in its first three days! The waters, of course, are ideall were charted now for the third and final film, set to be called: Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End.

In a recent interview, Depp actually said he'd love to do a fourth and fifth version, but none are in the works.

We'll go ahead and say what everyone out there is thinking: that's pure rubbish!
