From lotr_news community, taken from Empire Magazine, in the section ‘Your Heard it Here First':
No sooner had Pirates of The Caribbean made a squillion dollars worldwide than plans were announced for two back-to-back sequels, which feature the return of Orlando, Keira Knightley and, of course, the Oscar-nominated Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow. But since then, little has been heard, so we pumped Jerry Bruckheimer for info. “We have a pretty detailed outline on 2 and a fairly detailed outline for 3, but we’re moving in the right direction,” he whispered. “We should go into production next year.” But can the Deppster bottle lightning again? “Johnny can certainly replicate that performance; he’s really looking forward to it. He’s such an inventive actor he can always embellish his parts.” Oo-er missus! Etc.
There aren’t actually any news about Johnny lately.
