Johnny Depp didn’t understand the ‘Pirates’ sequels either!
Here’s what he had to say: “They had to invent a trilogy out of nowhere…It was plot driven and complicated. I remember talking to [Gore Verbinski, director of the first three films] at certain points during production of 2 or 3, and saying: ‘I don’t really know what this means.’ He said, ‘Neither do I, but let’s just shoot it.’ This guy is this guy’s dad, and this guy was in love with this broad. It was like, ‘What?’”
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is what we call redemption.
