You won’t have Johnny  Depp to watch on the big screen much longer, kemosabe.

The “Lone Ranger” actor says he may give up acting in the not-too-distant  future.

“At a certain point you start thinking and when you add up the amount of  dialogue you say per year, for example, you realize you’ve said written words  more than you’ve had a chance to say your own words,” Depp told BBC Breakfast.

“You start thinking of that as an insane option for a human being. Are there  quieter things I would’t mind doing? Yeah.

“I wouldn’t say I’m dropping out any second, but I would say it’s probably  not too far away,” Depp told the British morning show.

The three-time Oscar nominee may be at least partly disheartened by the box  office disappointment surrounding his latest film, “The Lone Ranger.” The  critically panned Western was close to Depp’s heart because of his affinity for  Native American culture.

Depp also told the Daily News last month that since he turned 50, he had  thought more and more about pursuits outside of acting.

“In the last year or two, music has kind of resurfaced more in my life, so  that’s been a great thing for my brain, a great escape from the things you need  to escape from now and again,” Depp said.

He did add that he still had plenty left on his acting bucket list,  including making films with the Coen Brothers and David Lynch.

In the meantime, Depp has a pretty full dance card. He’s set to start  filming the musical “Into the Woods” in the fall and is attached to reprise his  signature role in “Pirates of the Caribbean 5.”
