Johnny Depp can't wait to revive Captain Jack Sparrow

Johnny Depp says he can't wait to revive his pirate character for the sequel to The Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003).

Depp stole the film as swashbuckling Captain Jack Sparrow, a role he based on Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones.

He said: "I went through a decompression period after the first film. If you're really connected with a character, you always do to some degree.

You miss the guy. You miss being that person. The only thing that was in the back of my mind was the hope that there would be a sequel some day, so that I could meet him again."
