I mean, they were already shooting the third one at that time. It was an extraordinary experience, you know, but I was 17 when I started it and 21 when I finished. And, you know, they are amazing people, but I've always wanted to act because I like changing. And I sort of feel like I've done the pirating thing, as wonderful as it was and it was amazing.” They weren't in the fourth film because they said in an interview before that they wanted to further there career and although it was fun for them they want to have different roles within the industry.
If Disney will make a great offer and a great script as well let's cross our fingers that they'll reprise their roles and further the development of there story along with their son. IMO the first trilogy sets up a redemption arc for Captain Jack Sparrow. The relaunch made sense to me because in theory, if I was right about a redemption arc, then the logical course would be to dive further into Jack's past and then use those things to eventually catch up to Will and Elizabeth to "set things right".
Davy Jones Locker in particular creates a reality that represents Jack's "hell" by not being able to escape himself (ship on land stuck with unhelpful multiple Jacks = not being honest with himself/escapist character), contemplates if he should or shouldn't stab the heart (Will tries to explain being the Captain of the Flying Dutchman requires doing a specific job), and by the end of the film, it's clear Jack put Will in a precarious circumstance and has ruined the immediate future of Will and Elizabeth, as Will can only step on land every ten years. So when POTC: OST was announced I had read a couple of things. OST featured Angelica, Jack's own love-torn revenge story (which seems unfinished), from a women who feels she has been done wrong by Jack.
However, we had to wait for the US version to find out that Laura Linney's lonely Sarah, who passed up a romance with co-worker Karl in the original movie, had found love with none other than Patrick Dempsey.
Now, Jamie is happily married to Amelia Warner, with who he welcomed a baby girl last November.
