Johnny Depp will be in fifth and sixth 'Pirates of the Caribbean' movies




There's already another Pirates of the Caribbean sequel being shot, with Johnny Depp bringing back Capt. Jack Sparrow for On Stranger Tides, but we hope you haven't see enough of that mascara and tricorner hat. says there are already plans for a fifth and sixth movie in the franchise -- as long as Depp is available.

The site says that Disney will be shooting the next installments back to back, a la Lord of the Rings or Back to the Future, in order to accommodate Depp's busy schedule. He'll be shooting Dark Shadows and The Lone Ranger in 2011, so his adventures off the coast of Florida may have to wait until then.

Remember when Disney was all about animating fairy tales and coming up with weird original ideas like Tron? Now they're like every other studio, churning out sequels and retreads and making us long for an original idea. We have a great idea for a ninja movie, but at this rate, they'd spin it into another weird pirates vs. ninjas flick.
