Playing pirate just isn't fun anymore

Playing pirate just isn't fun anymore

The first question that comes to mind is, "Why in the world would they make another Pirates movie?" The first one was fun, the second one too long, and the third one too confusing for a film that was based on a theme park ride. The franchise seemed to wrap itself up nicely, so why would they make another one?

The answer is money. The studio knows that people will go see it. I read that Johnny Depp was paid $55 million to resume the role of Captain Jack Sparrow, which brings me to two conclusions: either he had no interest in playing the role again and that was that magical number of zeros it took, or he is such a smart man that he knows how much money a fourth "Pirates of the Caribbean" film would make and that the studio knew it would sink without him manning the wheel.
