Johnny Depp to Reappear in Another Pirates of the Caribbean Film
Johnny Depp is apparently intending to “return” to Pirates of the Caribbean after winning his defamation case against Amber Heard and is in negotiations with Disney about a “$300 million deal,” according to reports.
Johnny Depp was sacked from the Pirates series when Dead Men Tell No Tales was released in 2018. He had previously starred in five Pirates movies over the previous 15 years.
However, a source tells Poptopic that following winning his defamation trial against Amber Heard, the actor, 59, has been in talks with Disney about a ‘$300 million contract’.
Depp has just been contacted by Disney, according to a source, who says the company is interested in making amends with him.
‘They reached out to the actor prior to his defamation trial against Amber Heard and asked whether he would be interested in returning for another pirate film or two.
According to a source, Disney Plus is working on a new show or movie. Johnny Depp will reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates 6 and a spin-off series on Disney+ portraying the Captain’s early life, according to reports.
‘What I can tell you is that the studio has already penned up a draft for a film about Jack Sparrow so they are very hopeful that Johnny will forgive them and return as his iconic character.’
They are apparently working on a “$301 million agreement” to bring Depp back soon, and they are also reportedly making a “sizeable” charitable donation of his choice as an act of goodwill. This is according to the source.
The actor who played Edward Scissorhands earlier told the jury he would never work with Disney again after he was axed from the sixth Pirates of the Caribbean film.
Although the Washington Post article didn’t mention Johnny Depp by name, it plainly stated that he was a domestic abuser, and Depp’s legal team argues he lost out on a $22 million salary because of this article in 2018.
