Producer Jerry Bruckheimer says he has a screenplay in the works for a fifth "Pirates" tale after May's "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" comes out.
The original "Pirates" movies ended up as a trilogy with the same key characters and story line. Bruckheimer says "On Stranger Tides" and future "Pirates" flicks will be stand-alone stories continuing the adventures of Depp's character, Capt. Jack Sparrow.
Directed by Rob Marshall, "On Stranger Tides" sends Jack on a quest for the fountain of youth.
