Johnny Depp wants to "hold off" on a planned Pirates Of The Caribbean 5.

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer has already said he is in to make another Pirates movie, and screenwriter Terry Rossio has handed in his script for the fifth film, but with expectations building around the fourth instalment, due out on May 18, the Hollywood superstar doesn't want to rush into the next follow-up.

"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," he told The Hollywood Reporter.

"They should be special, just like they are special to me," he added.

While he hasn't seen Terry's new script, Johnny isn't opposed to reprising his iconic Jack Sparrow character in the future.

"It boils down to story, script and filmmaker," he said.

Joining Johnny in the fourth film, Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, are Penelope Cruz, Geoffrey Rush and Ian McShane.
