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

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides doesn't hit U.S. theaters until May 20. But screenwriter Terry Rossio has just turned in his script for a planned fifth installment in Disney's most lucrative film franchise.

Rossio tells THR that the still-untitled script -- his first penned without Ted Elliot, who collaborated on the first four Pirates scripts -- was delivered to Disney this past weekend. It's the initial step in putting together the key creative pieces for another Pirates film.

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....

Slow it up and improve the script

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.
