Bill Nighy Eager To Sail Again For ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean 4’

The announcement that there was to be a fourth “Pirates of the Caribbean” installment took no one by surprise. It was pretty much a given when Captain Jack Sparrow unrolled the map to the Fountain of Youth, and set off in pursuit of Captain Barbossa and the Black Pearl.

They may have to keep a weather eye on the horizon because if Bill Nighy has his way, Davy Jones will weigh anchor, and be sailing right behind them.

“I am technically dead but then again, who cares?” Nighy said to MTV News. “Everybody dies in the pirates movies. They killed Johnny [Depp] and Geoffrey [Rush]. Death is not permanent in the pirate world. I have a serious desire to come back.”

Nighy didn’t say whether he would like to return with or without Jones’ tentacles – but since he spent two films buried under CG effects, wouldn’t it be cool to see him without?

Casting buzz has been relatively scarce on the fourth Pirates, but a very persistent rumor has Russell Brand joining the Sparrow clan as Jack’s brother. We asked Nighy if there was any truth to the story, but the actor shrugged it off as rumor. “No, I didn’t hear that. I don’t think there’s any more news at this point other than that there will be another Pirates movie.”
