Johnny’s In, but Keira is Still out of Pirates 4

Keira Knightley has already said previously that she doubts she’ll ever be returning to the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, and she’s repeated that train of thought one more time. Although Knightley couches her response to the question in very glowing and positive terms (“amazing”, “wonderful”, “magical”, “lots and lots of money” — okay, maybe not so much the last one), she’s reiterated again that it’s very doubtful she would be slipping on Elizabeth Swann’s corset for one more swashbuckling adventure. One should keep in mind, though, that judging by the question posed to Knightley by MTV (in the video below), that her response was probably made before the official announcement by Johnny Depp and Disney that they were indeed going forward with a fourth “Pirates” movie. At least, that’s how I read it.

Knightley said this to MTV:

“They were completely amazing, but I think I can’t wear corsets for a while,” she said. “I had an amazing journey with those three films. But I think it’s [time to do] different things.”

Again, listen to the questioner’s question closely. I believe this interview was taped before yesterday’s official announcements by Disney about a fourth “Pirates” movie. Would the fact that the movie is now official change Knightley’s mind?
