Los Angeles, Aug 21 (IANS): Actor Johnny Depp is set to feature in the fifth edition of "Pirates Of The Caribbean" and the actor will reportedly earn 60 million pounds from the franchise.

The actor is also being careful about not signing too many films.
"Johnny is being very careful... he does not sign on for too many films. He doesn't want to ruin his career with overexposure," the source said.
