The star of Pirates of the Caribbean is open to a spinoff, but not exactly confident ...

Jack Davenport has stated that he would certainly accept an invitation back to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise in the form of a spinoff series focusing on his Commodore Norrington, but that it won't be an option.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actor talked about his role in the first three films. Davenport quickly dismissed the idea of a Norrington spinoff, saying, "A snowball in hell has a stronger likelihood of survival than the Commodore Norrington reboot." With that being said, the actor said he would certainly return if the opportunity presented itself.

Barbossa died and became undead before returning to life again, so anything is possible.

Davenport has to overcome other difficulties, most of whom are just unconcerned about him, because he almost married Elizabeth. The fact is, the one who is significant is Commodore Norrington.

All of this, and we haven't even touched on the difficult waters in which the franchise has found itself as of late. The Johnny Depp and Amber Heard trial last year seemed to be the last nail in the coffin for Jack Sparrow, who, as it's safe to say, was the main attraction for many fans.

Without him, the sixth Pirates film was almost done in the water. Disney did speculate on a remake with Margot Robbie, but she herself admitted in November last year that her film was now sleeping with the fishes.

The future of the Pirates of the Caribbean is unknown at the moment, but it might be prudent to start small. A low-risk Disney Plus series focusing on someone who, let's be honest, isn't a fan favorite, might provide the foundations to build out from there. In the future, we'll likely see more Pirates of the Caribbean content.
