Johnny Depp to earn nearly $95 million for ‘Pirates 5’

Johnny Depp appears to be onboard for “Pirates 5”


According to The Sun, the actor will earn “around £60 million” to reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow. The actor was paid a rumoured £35 million for the most recent movie in the fantasy franchise, 2011’s On Stranger Tides.

The fifth Pirates film reportedly presents a challenge for the actor and his battle against overexposure. An industry source is said to have told the tabloid: “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.”

Depp first appeared as Sparrow in 2003’s Pirates Of The Caribbean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl and has since reprised the role in three sequels.

Depp was last seen on screen earlier this year (2012) in Tim Burton‘s big screen remake of 1960s soap opera Dark Shadows. He recently reteamed with Pirates Of The Caribbean director Gore Verbinski to shoot a new Western film called Lone Ranger, which is due for release in July 2013.
