Johnny Depp Not Anxious to Start Filming New 'Pirates of the Caribbean' Film

MARTIN BUREAU/AFP/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Johnny Depp wants to enjoy the release of the latest Pirates of the Caribbean film before he dives into the next sequel in the popular franchise. Depp, who reprises his role of Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, opening May 20, says he has yet to see the script for the as-yet-untitled fifth film in the series.

But he does tell The Hollywood Reporter, "It's not something where I would say, 'Let's shoot it next month to get it out by Christmas 2012.'" He adds, "We should hold off for a bit. They should be special, just like they are special to me."

Currently, he's not officially attached to star in the film.

The Hollywood Reporter says the script for the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean film has already been sent by the screenwriter to Disney.
