Johnny Depp: “‘Pirates Of The Caribbean 4’ will be less confusing”

Jack Sparrow actor says fans are owed more fun

Johnny Depp insists the forthcoming fourth Pirates Of The Caribbean movie won’t be as muddled and confusing as previous films in the franchise.

Pirates of Caribbean: On Stranger Tides follows two sequels that many fans have claimed are over-complicated. Now Depp, who is returning as Captain Jack Sparrow, has said he believes fans of the franchise are owed a more enjoyable movie.

Depp told Empire magazine: “The thing with Pirates 4, I felt like we owed it to people to entertain them. Pirates 2 and 3 became quite… sub-plotty. The mathematics of it. All these people went to see them two or three times just to figure out what was happening.”

He continued: “This one is a little closer in tone to the first more character driven… more subject driven. It has a freshness and less mathematics.”

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides will be released May 18.
