The latest movie has just crossed 1 billion at the box-office, expect a lot more pirates for some time to come!

Johnny Depp has officially begun talks to play Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates 5, despite previously being unsure of returning.

The latest film, ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean : On Stranger Tides’ just crossed the $1bn mark, one of only eight films ever to earn so much at the box-office. So perhaps a sequel was always inevitable?

Earlier this year, Depp had said “It’s not something where I would say, Let’s shoot it next month to get it out by Christmas 2012… We should hold off for a bit. They should be special, just like they are special to me.”

Reports in ‘The Wrap’ say that series regular Terry Rossio has already begun writing a script for Pirates 5 and that Disney are considering filming Pirates 5 and 6 back-to-back.
