No Keira Knightley in Pirates 4

Keira Knightley Doesn't Like ClothesKeira Knightley continues to impress me. Not only does she continue to challenge herself as an actress, but she has said “no” to the planned Pirates of the Caribbean 4, which will bring back Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow. The original Pirates put Keira on the map as the sexy love interest in a corsette, and resulted in major success for the actress.

But the next two Pirates movies were so-so at best, and other than a paycheck, doing a fourth movie would do nothing to further Knightley’s career. Here’s here well-stated comment on the subject:

It was a completely fantastic experience, and it was an amazingly large portion of my life, but I don’t think I need to go there again. I think that it’s done. But I’m very excited to see the next one. And he is so wonderful in that character. I think it’ll be wonderful.

While I’m not surprised Disney is going ahead with another Pirates of the Caribbean movie, considering that the franchise has earned them a tremendous amount of money, I am not at all looking forward to seeing the fourth film. The third film was annoying and stupid; why should a fourth be any better?

  • I respect her for having the strength to say no to a well paid project, but to be honest I’ve never been a fan of her acting. I think Americans like the accent, so she gets away with it – but really, her acting is very, very overrated in my opinion.

  • Yeah, I wouldn’t say she’s an amazing actress, but I feel she picks projects that suits her style quite well (Domino may be an excepetion).

  • Keira was never intended to be in Pirates 4. Her character arc ended in the 3rd film. She and Bloom were never considered for the fourth chapter.
