He said: "I don't like it when things make sense. I prefer it if they don't. If I made a film it wouldn't make any sense and nobody would see it."
Depp went on: "Maybe I'll just make little films at home with my phone, never to be released."
Talk has already started about a possible fifth installment in the Pirates series and Depp should find himself busy for many years to come.
He said: "I think they could wheel me in as Captain Jack while my dreadlocks get tangled in the wheels of the chair.
"With a character like Captain Jack you feel like you can just continue because if there's any potential for madness and absurdity, the possibilities are endless."
I must say it's a little disappointing that Depp has no plans for directing. Even if it didn't make sense I'd love to go and see it.
What do you think of the news? Would you go and see something Depp directed?
