Almost a year later, on September 11 , , to the surprise of thousands of die-hard Disney fans were sitting at the D23 Expo , Johnny Depp—in full Captain Jack Sparrow regalia—emerged onto the stage. After greeting Disney chairman Dick Cook, in swaggering character, Depp asked about a "talking frog".
However, despite producer Jerry Bruckheimer and fellow Pirates veterans Geoffrey Rush and Kevin McNally reprising their roles, Gore Verbinski would not be returning to the director's chair; instead Depp and Bruckheimer had chosen Rob Marshall to direct the fourth installment. Johnny Depp was deeply involved in the writing and development of On Stranger Tides "Johnny was instrumental in creating a lot of stories on the movie," says producer Jerry Bruckheimer. He was working really for the movie, not just for his own character.
The star also urged the writers to turn the character Philip Swift , who was originally a swashbuckling character, into a missionary.

Geoffrey Rush was quick to credit Johnny Depp with Barbossa's role in the film. And I have to admit that I find those scenes fun to play too. I always felt like these two characters bicker like a couple of old housewives at a bridge club, just picking each other apart by the tiniest little morsel and detail. That's how Geoffrey and I have approached it from day one, and he's most definitely a worthy opponent. Geoffrey is a fantastic actor, who's constantly investigating the possibilities of a scene. It's always fresh, always new, always interesting with Geoffrey.

On September , while filming for On Stranger Tides took place on location in London, England  , Johnny Depp portrayed Captain Jack Sparrow for acclaimed photographer Annie Leibovitz's Disney Dream Portrait Series for Disney Parks , a first for the series as Depp was one of the actors stepping into a Disney fantasy portrait while playing a character he already portrayed on the big screen.
Depp was joined by his friend, the legendary performer, writer and artist, Patti Smith as the Second Pirate in Command. The caption for this pair of portraits starring Depp reads, "Where magic sets sail and adventures become legendary. In October, while filming at the Old Naval College, Johnny Depp paid a surprise visit to a Greenwich Primary School dressed as Captain Jack Sparrow after a 9-year-old girl named Beatrice Delap wrote to his character asking for help in a " mutiny against her teachers".
Ultimately, "Captain Jack" told the girl that he shouldn't be involved in the mutiny because there were police outside the building. Near the release of On Stranger Tides , Johnny Depp said that he would be happy to return as Captain Jack Sparrow saying "As long as we can put all the puzzle pieces together, I would most definitely consider it". On April , Johnny Depp said in an interview that Jerry Bruckheimer and Disney had invited him in to collaborate with screenwriter Jeff Nathanson to bring a "fresh and very different" Pirates film, implying that it might be the last one in the series.
Johnny Depp with a Captain Jack animatronic. To coincide with the release of Dead Man's Chest , enhancements were made to the Pirates of the Caribbean attractions at the Disney Parks unveiled on July 7 , Among the enhancements was Johnny Depp reprising his role as Captain Jack Sparrow by lending his voice to Audio-Animatronics with Depp's likeness installed.
Realistic animatronic figures of Captain Jack was appear in three scenes: one where Jack's hiding from invading pirates, another where he's hiding from the Pooped Pirate in a barrel, and the third, and last, being that Jack's singing A Pirate's Life for Me after finding the town's treasure.
Johnny Depp himself had rode the attraction and also had a look at the animatronic. Although the grand opening was on December 6 , the attraction was revealed from a soft opening in November , in which Johnny Depp once again reprised his famous role as Captain Jack Sparrow. Depp as Sparrow appeared in a most realistic way, believably standing up on the ship's bow for the remainder of the show; though in reality, it was through the use of projections.

In such acts of rebelliousness are myths made, and Johnny ultimately imbued Captain Jack with such humor, humanity, derring-do, and occasional signs of bravery—even selflessness—that an icon was born.

But now — decades later — he's having a very peculiar moment indeed. The sometime freak has become a blockbuster star in a franchise known more for its commercial rather than its artistic merit. His people — few are left — are leaking unintentionally damning stories that he is " taking his work seriously " after a devastating Hollywood Reporter article that paints the actor as a nightmare prone to blaming others for his failures. With his personal, financial, and professional reputation in jeopardy, the actor seems to be isolating himself.
He has fired his agent who signed up back when he was doing 21 Jump Street , and is suing his manager, disputing among other things several million dollars in loans they made to his sister Christi with whom he had always been close. On the personal front, his fights with then-wife Amber Heard hit the rumor circuit in Australia, where Pirates 5 was filming.
As for his behavior on set, the Reporter piece contends that Depp's lateness was so legendary that a designated production staffer would sit outside his rented home waiting to see a light go on — whether in the morning or afternoon — in order to alert people on set that they could look forward to starting soon.
This is the behavior of a diva. It seriously clashes with Depp's reputation for challenging humility. Depp, who always seemed to chafe at "Sexiest Man" monikers that made him the heartthrob he feared becoming, has always been charmingly self-deprecating in interviews.
Though he's never shied away from effete fashion choices and aesthetic affectations that bespeak a very particular kind of vanity — he wore a blingy woman's engagement ring on Letterman, created Jack Sparrow's look and affect, and developed an odd, vaguely British accent — these read as challenging rejections of what a male movie star was supposed to be. While he was eminently capable of performing ordinary Handsome Man casualness, Depp would groom hard in the service of an unexpected sexiness. The Jack Sparrow option, with its dreads and braids and eyeliner, was a lot more work than just throwing on sneakers and a sportscoat.
In Sparrow, Depp found a beloved bug he could become: odd, louche, impulsive, uncontrollable. The character — whose look and affect Depp famously based on Keith Richards and nearly got fired for insisting on — operates under a different definition of ease. He's relaxed, often drunk, and loopily indifferent to constraints most people take quite seriously. Above all, he trusts his instincts. Of course he'd have a skull-and-crossbones tattoo that says "Death is certain. Why not?
He's a free radical, totally indifferent to bourgeois considerations and predictable constraints. Depp, in contrast, has had to actively shape his artistic persona and the story of his indifference. The following exchange with David Letterman illustrates something key about how he goes about it. This is from , and they're talking about his friendship with and admiration for Marlon Brando:. He dislikes stardom while being grateful for its rewards — like friendship with Brando — but isn't precious about his own talent, or having others worship his ego.
He's refreshingly frank about his real feelings about his early work:. One can admire his candor, but there's another side to all this — one that Depp's own admissions support. Namely, a real lack of professionalism on set. Take his account of his performance in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory :.

I can only go by what I feel, and I feel good. I'd rather just figure something out. Depp, for his part, is busy with Warner Bros. Not only that, given how his starpower of his late is definitely waning, not to mention all of the personal issues he's been having, it makes sense that Disney would dropkick him out of the franchise as he's no longer bankable. The question now is whether anyone actually cares about 'Pirates of the Caribbean' sans Johnny Depp.
