'Pirates 5' Script Delivered to Disney But Johnny Depp Wants to 'Hold Off for a Bit'

Milk that cow, Disney. I'm with Depp on this one. Slow your role.

I would too if I was him. He is smart and knows a character can only take so much before people get tired of it. Not only that if he straight up agreed to this then Pirate 6 would be on his desk a month later. Think about a deep story and let it develop for a while, dont be milking the hell out of it....

That's exactly what he wants. He loves the character though. He said that Captain Jack Sparrow, Edward Scissor Hands, and Ed Wood were at the top of his favorite parts he's ever played.
