Keira Knightley's reply on whether she will return to the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' franchise.

'Pirates of the Caribbean' is one of the most loved movie franchises. Although it is fair to argue that the quality of the series has declined over the course of last few films, but the franchise still enjoys a massive fanbase and the fans keep asking for more. For a long time now, the audiences have been asking for Keira Knightley to reprise her role of Elizabeth Swan. For the unversed, Knightley had played this role in 'Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl' and after this, she was not seen in the franchise.

The actress who is awaiting the release of her new Hulu movie 'Boston Stranger', was recently asked whether she will return to the Pirates franchise. We have sad news for you, the actress has said that she would not return to the franchise.

"What about Elizabeth Swan? I mean, she sailed away so nicely. She sailed away in brilliant style," Knightley told Entertainment Tonight.

When asked what she remembers of the franchise's first film which will celebrate its 20th anniversary later this year, she said: "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."

"So, I'm being asked about all three. 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," she added. 

Knightley's response has come just days after Pirates producer Jerry Bruckheimer told Entertainment Tonight that he would love to bring back Johnny Depp for the Pirates sequel which is currently in the works.

"We'll see. I would love it. I would love to have him in the movie. That's all I can tell you," Bruckheimer said. 

When asked for a further update on the uber-popular franchise, he said: "We're all working on it. We'll see how it comes out."

"But we're all very excited. I think we're gonna have a great screenplay, and we're getting close," he added.
