Depp to get $95 million for 'Pirates 5'?

From thesun, JOHNNY DEPP is ready for his next big role in life following his split from singer Vanessa Paradis earlier this year – and it will send him flying back to the top of the actors’ pay league.
The superstar will do a fifth Pirates Of The Caribbean film and is set to make around £60m from the latest instalment of the blockbuster franchise.

The massive pay packet will keep Johnny’s bank manager happy as he splashes out on supporting his two kids and ex – who he was with for 14 years but never married.

A movie source revealed: “Johnny is being very careful he does not sign on for too many films.

“He doesn’t want to ruin his career with overexposure like John Travolta or Nic Cage did.

“This huge deal for Pirates means he will be able to pick his other roles very carefully on the strength of their script rather than their salary.”

Wow, that is a lot of freakin' money.

I love that character but I never saw the last one, and it's low on my list of catch-ups. I recall they were talking about working Captain Nemo and the Nautilus into the 4th one and then they changed their minds. I guess I never got over it.

I haven't seen the last two. While I enjoyed the first 2 I thought they were both overlong.

I disagree with you about the first one; one of the things I like about it the most is how well it spools out a pretty damn convoluted (and long) plot. It's exactly what I thought 2 and 3 failed at.
