    The Oscar-nominated actress Keira Knightley finished filming her last scene this week as pirate wench Elizabeth Swann in Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End, according to the Daily Mail.

    The United Kingdom based newspaper says that Knightley has told the movie's producers that she doesn't want to participate in any further sequels.

    Keira's co-star in the series, Johnny Depp, has already said that he would consider playing the ramshackle pirate Captain Jack Sparrow - famously modeled on Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards - as long as the scripts remained good.

    "I've been playing this girl since I was 17," Keira told the newspaper.

    "I'm 21 now and I'm onto very different things, but it's fun to try to invest Elizabeth with some rebellious spirit.

    Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End is now playing

    They could easily pump out a fourth movie without Knightly. She was a supporting character that didn't exactly fit in too well with the rest of the cast from the get-go.

    They shouldn't do a Pirates of the Carribean 4 period. It's already got a good conclusion to the story. They do not need to mess it up.



    ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

    She is the greatest and most important character in the series man.

    It would take a very good story for a fourth pirate movie to work. Although if anyone could do it, I think they just could...
    Anyway regardless I agree that shes really unnecessary.

    yes they could, but the I doubt if it would be easy without Knightley character.

    and isn't she like main cast? calling her character supporting is a mistake IMO.

    that on the other hand is overreacting. she was important, but only as much as Jack and Will.

    I don't like the idea of the 4th one, even with good story it would be kinda too much. And when you mention that it would be without Keira Knightley I don't like the idea even more.

    Some ppl became emotionaly atached to Elizabeth Turner, so even if they would replace her with some other female character it still wouldn't be the same.

    Good for her. As much as it would be awesome to continue the tradition, it would get played out. The way the last movie ended as well seemed as if her part in it was truly over.

    At any ate, i'd have to say that if they did a Part 4 and brought in a bunch of new people i don't know if i'd be as eager to watch it. I'd probably wait till it came out on dvd.

    Hollywood really like to drag out these high concept films. I doubt it'll be any good. Keira was an asset to the cast, but she's doing the right thing by not acting in the 4th; to avoid being type-cast to this role.

    Keira sucks so this would only be a plus if they made a fourth movie. Other than that, three is more than enough and it would only get silly after this point with more sequals I think.

    The third ended it well enough. Adding any more would simply be milking it, and this only adds to it.

    Hollywood feels uneasy right now and are turning every which way for movie concepts. Good that Kiera stood up to this because a 4th movie may disrupt the spirit of the series.

    Theres still that 10 year gap or w.e when she had her child in the movie. So its very possible to just have jack and maybe some new people and not orlando since he could be off somewhere with the duchman lol.

    i couldn't really stand her anyway but I thought that the 3rd one was the last. I mean it would be kinda stupid making another one after all that >> unless they had new characters that might be really cool :D

    They couldn't pull off a POTC movie without her... Elizabeth's a pretty huge part of the movies. D: I'm disappointed...

    Pff. Like she really has anything greater to do. I mean that IS her job, to act!
    just wouldn't seem right having someone else has her now =/.

    Oh well, not worth crying over. Well personally i just want a full Jack Sparrow movie. Maybe more on his past and stuff? :D

    If they actually manage to make this movie looks good I might pull a Fat Joe and send them 1000 dollars if It's good and make $ 150 at the box office.

    Ask me though they're probaly gonna pull off a Hermione granger offer and give her a billion dollars to act in this next one.

    I mean face it y'all. Without Keira Knightly the whole film is crap.

    She was responsible for Will being apart of the Dutchman and needs to mother her goddamn child.

    Nah, she wasn't a big part of the story, maybe for the trilogy's whole plot, but since they concluded Elizabeth's and Will's story of love, she isn't necessary and Jack Sparrow without a crew again, I can see them making anoter movie and perhaps make a 2nd trilogy set with Jack Sparrow. It can play out like Star Wars. Two trilogies with different plot from one another. Prequal being about the Rise of the Empire and Anakin, while the Original was the fall and the choices of Luke.

    All that's necessary is a trilogy not a four movie set.


    I swear sometimes Hollywood are such a bunch of fucking retards.

    Man I love Jack Sparrow so I wouldn't care how many movies they can make for the guy, as long as it's good. Will that be easy? Nope.
