Jerry Bruckheimer and Gore Verbinski (and now Rob Marshall) keep making Pirates Of The Caribbean movies, and like a moth to the flame, Johnny Depp just keeps showing up, even if he doesn’t always know why or what he’s supposed to be doing there. In an interview that likely encapsulates the general mood and motivations for the forthcoming, already-written fifth and yet-to-be-engineered sixth editions of the franchise, Depp appraises his last two outings as Capt. Jack Sparrow thusly: “They had to invent a trilogy out of nowhere," he tells EW. "It was plot driven and complicated. I remember talking to [Gore Verbinski] at certain points during production of 2 or 3, and saying: 'I don't really know what this means.' He said, 'Neither do I, but let's just shoot it.' This guy is this guy's dad, and this guy was in love with this broad. It was like, 'What?'" Depp also freely admits that his general lack of interest meant that didn’t even see the finished second or third films—not that it would have helped clear things up. Anyway, now that we’re all on the same page, we’re really looking forward to Pirates Of The Caribbean 5: It Was Like, “What?”
