It is rumored that Disney offered Johnny Depp $301 million to return to Pirates of the Caribbean.
Johnny Depp, who has been on the agenda with his reputation defamation case with his ex-wife Amber Heard recently, is now being talked about with allegations that he has returned to Pirates of the Caribbean.
In the lawsuit he won, Johnny Depp argued that the domestic violence and abuse allegations made by Amber Heard were intended to defame his name and that his career was damaged due to these allegations. The actor, who gave life to Captain Jack Sparrow, the main character of the Pirates of the Caribbean series, said in his testimony in court that he was removed from the sequel by Disney in 2018 after allegations of abuse were covered in the press.
However, in the cross-examination, a statement that Depp did not want to play in Pirates of the Caribbean came up, regardless of Disney’s decision. When Heard’s attorney asked Depp openly whether he would make another Jack Sparrow movie “if he was offered $300 million and more,” Depp made it clear that he did not want to return to the role of Jack Sparrow.
According to a new claim, Disney offered Depp $301 million to return to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. According to the news on various websites, unnamed sources from Disney are wondering if the company wants to reconnect with Johnny Depp and whether it will be interested in making one or more Pirates of the Caribbean movies. The news grew on the internet, and there were also allegations that Disney made a series of offers to Depp, such as choosing the actors on the film, deciding on the story, signing an indefinite contract.
However, this news, which excited the fans, was refuted by the representatives of Johnny Depp. In a statement to NBC News, it was stated that all these allegations were fabricated. There was no statement from Johnny Depp himself or Disney.
The producer of the series, Jerry Bruckheimer, also stated in an interview with The Sunday Times last month that they are working on two Pirates of the Caribbean projects and that Johnny Depp will not take a role in these films. The fact that Bruckheimer left a small open door for the future and said “the future has not been decided yet” was the branch that Depp fans cling to. But for now, hopes for Johnny Depp’s return in Pirates of the Caribbean have once again been dashed…
