Johnny Depp’s out promoting his fourth stint as Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides at the moment, but he’s not sure he fancies a fifth go at the rum.

The actor said that a few key factors needed to be in place first in order to keep the franchise “special”.

“Boils down to story, script and filmmaker,” he said regarding the topic of a fifth movie. “It's not something where I would say, 'Let's shoot it next month to get it out by Christmas 2012'.

“We should hold off for a bit. They should be special, just like they are special to me."

The actor went on to add he has a low-budget idea for further instalments in the profitable franchise, joking:

“I have a clever idea for Pirates 5 and 6 . We're actually going to shoot it on the [ Disneyland ] ride. Just us going around in a circle. Just close-ups on everyone.”

Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides opens 18 May.
