While there's no concrete plans (YET) to continue the Pirates of the Caribbean series following the third chapter (At World's End), you can just bet that Jerry Bruckheimer and Disney are having some big-time think-tank sessions on how to keep this particular cash cow moving along smoothly. And it looks like Johnny Depp would be just fine with it!

Although well-known as a fiercely independent actor who'll sign on for big or small films based only on his interest in the material, Mr. Depp is clearly enjoying the fact that he (finally, unexpectedly) has a massive franchise of his own. Here's what he told The Telegraph: "I'm the luckiest guy in the world to have had such a great experience. If I walk away from Jack now, I'll walk away with some amazing memories. But At World's End leaves open the possibility of a fourth or fifth movie, which I wouldn't be opposed to on an actor level because I feel there is a lot more territory to explore with Captain Jack."

Johnny's just finishing up Sweeney Todd with Tim Burton, and after that he'll probably enjoy a nice vacation with his wife and kids, but he's letting the world (and his producers) know that they shouldn't bury Jack Sparrow just yet: "I've never really felt I'm done with playing the character, so why shouldn't we try a fourth and a fifth?" Sounds good to me! (Although I seriously hope they keep the same screenwriters on board.)
