Is Johnny Depp Returning To ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’

No, Johnny Depp Is Not Returning To ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’
In the aftermath of the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard trial, which inspired a flood of sympathy for the former Pirates of the Caribbean actor, a preposterous story recently circulated online, riding the tide of starry-eyed love.
According to the allegation, Depp will be paid at least $301 million to reprise his most famous role as Captain Jack Sparrow. The report also said that a Disney Plus series that would examine Jack Sparrow’s formative years may be in the works (despite Depp currently being 59 years old).
The allegation is just untrue, as much fun as it could be to witness an ageing Depp portray the younger version of a part that he has been phoning in for at least the previous two movies.
Pirates of the Caribbean’s full budget of $301 million is an absurd sum. At World’s End is not a low-budget movie (indeed, Davy Jones still holds up as one of the most convincing CGI creations ever put to screen).
Fans, though, are still hopeful to see him. One significant illustration of this is a petition on Change.org to have Depp return as Jack Sparrow, which has amassed over 500,000 signatures and is almost at one million (via Change).

The fact that thousands of individuals showed their support for Depp through a petition at a time when his popularity was at its lowest should mean something.
While one of the main factors in the success of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise was Johnny Depp’s Jack Sparrow. Some viewers believe the absence of him would ruin the franchise’s next film.
But following the Depp v. Heard trial, the general public’s perception of the actor significantly changed in his favour, to the point that many people have shown interest in seeing him in the movie once more.
There are two Pirates of the Caribbean films presently in production. The forthcoming Pirates of the Caribbean 6 is the first of the two. The protagonist of the second movie, which is unrelated to the first two and is under production, will be played by Margot Robbie.
Depp was allegedly set to get $22.5 million for his sixth appearance as Jack Sparrow before being let go from the trilogy; during the height of his fame, he made $50 million for the third movie, At World’s End. Even Depp believed he was getting paid too much for his role in the series; in an interview with Vanity Fair in 2011, he stated:
“Basically, I’m going to take it if they’re going to pay me the dumb money right now.”
Since Depp is shortly scheduled for another court appearance after being accused of hitting a staff member, it is absurd to imagine that Disney would give any actor that much money, much less one who has shown to be such a liability on site.
