Steve Weintraub has an interview at Collider.com with Johnny Depp, who’s working the publicity circuit for the Wednesday release of Public Enemies. The interview covers a range of topics from his love for director Tim Burton, and their upcoming collaborations like next year’s Alice in Wonderland and the planned-but-not-in-production-yet Dark Shadows. He also had something to say about the possibility of a fourth Pirates of the Carribbean:
On Pirates, Johnny said, “What we’re trying to do is just get a script in order and make sure it’s the right thing to do. If we can get a great script it’d be a ball.”
Go read the entire interview for more from Depp. It’s a good little read.
I’m sure a lot of you are rolling your eyes over the idea of yet another Pirates movie. I’ll admit, the sequels weren’t nearly as good as the original, which was pretty damn awesome. Dead Man’s Chest was boring as hell until the climax, but I thought At World’s End redeemed the franchise enough to make me want to see another sequel. And don’t even try to deny it; you know you’d still go see another one too, even if you thought the sequels were crap.
And though I’ve never been on an acid trip, I think seeing Burton’s Alice in Wonderland is going to be about as close as you can get to one without actually dropping acid.
