Cultural News Johnny Depp, back in Pirates of the Caribbean? We take stock of the rumors

The Pirates of the Caribbean saga left us a bit unsatisfied in 2017 with the launch of Salazar’s Revenge, a lackluster episode that failed to please fans. Moreover, it is for this reason that the latter claim the great return of the franchise, to erase the errors of the fifth episode. But this sixth iteration will be with or without Johnny Depp?

A check for 300 million dollars for the return of Jack Sparrow?

It’s been years now that Disney announced that the sequel to the Pirates of the Caribbean saga will be without Johnny Depp… Indeed, following divergent visions and an altercation between the actor and Disney, the giant with the big ears unveils the 20 December 2018 that the next Pirates of the Caribbean will simply be without Johnny Depp and his iconic character Jack Sparrow. But since the end of his trial which opposed him to Amber Heard, the actor from Kentucky has risen in the esteem of many fans, which has led to the establishment of a petition addressed to The Walt Disney Company; a petition that has exceeded 770,000 signatures, just that. The latter, as you can imagine, asks that Johnny Depp simply resume his role.

At the same time, a rumor points the tip of his nose on the internet. The latter indicates that Walt Disney is currently in talks with Johnny Depp to rejoin the Pirates of the Caribbean saga and for that, the American studio would have offered the sum of 301 million dollars to the actor (note the 1 to make it all sound more believable). A sum simply insane.

Johnny Depp is back or not?

On April 21, 2022, the actor officially declared during his trial that he would never resume his role as Jack Sparrow for a Pirates of the Caribbean film, regardless of the amount. This statement is still one since today, representatives of Johnny Depp have decided to speak on NBC News to put an end to all these rumors. Indeed, they stated that this 301 million dollar contract story is just a pure “invention” on the part of the fans. In other words, the sequel to Pirates of the Caribbean will therefore indeed be done without Johnny Depp.

If we are to believe the latest information related to the franchise, therefore, the next Pirates of the Caribbean opus will not be the sequel to The Revenge of Salazar, but a reboot of the 2003 film. It will be written by Craig Mazin (Chernobyl) and Ted Elliott (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides). It would also seem that a second Pirates of the Caribbean project would also be in the game. The latter would feature actress Margot Robbie (The Suicide Squad) in the lead role. The whole thing would be a spin-off written by Christina Hodson (Birds of Prey).
