Disney Blog: Johnny Depp's Massive Salary for Pirates

November 29, 2008

According to Magic Mountain Johnny Depp is going to get approx. $56,000,000 for Pirates of the Caribbean Four.

Johnny Depp apparently and loves the films and his character Jack Sparrow:


“Doing the Pirates movies has been an absolute blast,” he says.

“I’m the luckiest guy in the world to have had such a great experience. If I walk away from Jack now, I’ll walk away with some amazing memories. But At World’s End leaves open the possibility of a fourth or fifth movie, which I wouldn’t be opposed to on an actor level because I feel there is a lot more territory to explore with Captain Jack.”

“I’ve never really felt I’m done with playing the character, so why shouldn’t we try a fourth and a fifth?”

And even though Jack Sparrow really does make the movie, $56M is an enormous amount of money. I'm sure Disney will do a good job with it though (at least I hope !) :)
