Hollywood star Johnny Depp’s future in the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise has remained ambiguous. It was contrary to the assumption. Some reports claimed that the actor was going to sign a 301 million dollar deal to return to the adventure franchise. “Disney is very interested in patching up their relationship with Johnny Depp,” was told by a source to Pop Topic four years later after Disney and Depp parted their ways. “They are very hopeful that Johnny will forgive them and return as his iconic character.”
The actors’ representative has stated a statement to NBC News in which he said “This is made up.” Depp had played the role of Captain Jack Sparrow for five films. He appeared last in 2017 titled Dead Men Tell No Tales. Producer of Pirates Jerry Bruckheimer, who is now working on two more films was asked if Bruckheimer, who is now working on two more films, was asked if Depp would be back for future projects. “Not at this point,” he told The Sunday Times, adding that ‘the future was yet to be decided’. These statements were made during Depp’s defamation trial with Amber Heard. During the trial, Depp said that he had no intention of returning for more Pirates films.

Depp had accused his ex-wife Amber Heard of deteriorating his well-established career by publishing an op-ed about their relationship during the ongoing $100 million slander trial against Amber Heard. He was questioned by his lawyer and he admitted that he was removed by Disney from Pirates of the Caribbean only 6 days later after the article was published. When asked about the Daily Mail article it reported that he was “out as Jack Sparrow”.
“I wasn’t aware of that, but it doesn’t surprise me,” Depp confirmed through Variety. “Two years had gone by of constant worldwide talk about me being this wife-beater. So, I’m sure that Disney was trying to cut ties to be safe. The #MeToo movement was in full swing at that point.” His career has suffered a lot because of allegations that were made against him. John argued that what put his career in danger was the piece of information, not earlier allegations that were made against him in 2016.

“I would be a real simpleton to not think that there was an effect on my career based on Ms Heard’s words, whether they mentioned my name or not,” Depp said. The actor also stated that his career was “done” from “the second the allegations were made”. “Once that happened, I lost,” he said. “No matter the outcome of this trial, I’ll carry that for the rest of my days… I’m suing her over defamation and the various falsifies that she used to bring my life to an end.” He also ascertained that Disney continued to sell Jack Sparrow merchandise. “They didn’t remove my character from the rides,” Depp said. “They didn’t stop selling dolls of Captain Jack Sparrow. They didn’t stop selling anything. They just didn’t want there to be something trailing behind me that they’d find.”
Depp also confirmed that he would never reprise his role as Jack Sparrow. Cross-examiner Ben Rottenborn told him: “The fact is, Mr Depp, if Disney came to you with $300 million and a million alpacas, nothing on this earth would get you to go back and work with Disney on a Pirates of the Caribbean film? Correct?” “That is true,” said Depp. According to the Insider reports, Depp was set to be paid $22.5 million for the sixth Pirates of the Caribbean movie.
