It seems as if having one Rolling Stone in the movies with him is not quite enough for actor Johnny Depp. The Pirates of The Caribbean star now wants to recruit Stones frontman Mick Jagger for the next sequel which already features Stones band made Keith Richards as the father of Depp’s character, Captain Jack Sparrow.
I think we’ve all seen big movies that have ultimately diminished themselves with sequels that never measured up to the original, but Depp does not seem to be worried about that at all. As reported by the Express, Depp is quite anxious to get back into character for another swashbuckling adventure on the high seas.
“I can’t wait to get back in costume. Some people will say, ‘Aha Depp sold out by doing the sequels’. But it was never an issue for me. I love Captain Jack so much I’d do Pirates 7 if asked,” Depp said.
Whether or not Jagger would make a good pirate may be debatable, but there’s little doubt that he’s got enough personality and natural showmanship to have a good shot at giving Depp what he’s looking for.
No word on whether Jagger has been officially asked to join the cast, but Disney is reportedly beginning to work out the details of the next sequel, and the Richards-Jagger combination is definitely something Depp would like to see, going as far as saying that he thinks they would be “perfect,” according to an insider.
Whether or not a fourth movie will dampen the enthusiasm of movie fans will eventually be revealed, but having two Rolling Stones as part of the cast may bring in fans who might not otherwise spend their money on a Disney movie about pirates.
