Keira Knightley isn’t considering ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ return
It’s been almost six years since the franchise released its last movie, and while talks of a new sequel have surfaced, don’t expect to see Elizabeth Swann again.
Keira Knightley’s role in ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl’ certainly propelled the star’s career forward as an international icon.
Still, it looks as though she isn’t all that interested in reprising the role in the next sequel that producers have been hinting at.
Knightley appeared in two more sequels after that, alongside Johnny Depp and Orlando Bloom, and a final short appearance in the last movie ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales”.
With the original film in the series turning 20 this year, Knightley knows that it played a big part in setting her on her way as a big-time Hollywood actress.
“It sort of launched me out of a rocket, really, as far as my career went. That year was ‘Bend It Like Beckham’, ‘Love Actually’ and ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’,” she told Entertainment Tonight.
Although Knightley may have started out as a damsel in distress while playing the role of Elizabeth Swann, she transformed into a pirate in her own right by the end of the series of movies.
When asked about those times, she replied: “Unfortunately, I was 16 and 17. so I don’t really remember very much of it, but yes, it certainly was a very big year for me.”
Will Elizabeth Swann make a return?
While speaking about her newest film ‘Boston Strangler’, Knightley was asked by Entertainment Tonight about her potential return to the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ franchise.
“What about Elizabeth Swann?,” Knightley replied, with the actress seemingly content with how things ended. “I mean, she sailed away so nicely. She sailed away in brilliant style.”
Knightley might not be on board, but it’s unknown still if Captain Jack Sparrow, Johnny Depp, will make a return.
When asked about having Depp on the newest film, producer Jerry Bruckheimer said: “I would love to have him in the movie – that’s all that I can tell you.”
