During the trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard it was revealed that Disney had fired the actor of his role as Jack Sparrow for the sixth film of Pirates of the Caribbean in 2018, this when the accusations of abuse by abuse by abuse made known His now ex-wife. However, a new report ensures that Depp could resume this role, and would do it with a significant salary increase.
According to sources close to Disney, the mouse company is currently in negotiations with Johnny Depp so that the actor takes up the role of Jack Sparrow not only for a sixth film, but for a Disney+ series also, and all this by A salary of $ 301 million . At the moment, representatives of the actor and the company have denied this information.
On the one hand, this was what a source told Pop Topic:
According to reports, the agreement is that Johnny Depp returns as Jack Sparrow.
Disney is very interested in fixing his relationship with Johnny Depp. They communicated with the actor before his judgment for defamation against Amber Heard and asked if he would be interested in returning for one or two more films of ‘pirates’.
What I can tell you is that the study has already written a draft for a film about Jack Sparrow, so they have many hopes that Johnny forgive them and return as his iconic character.
Recall that during his trial, Depp mentioned that nothing in the world would make him return as Jack Sparrow after being fired from the role in an abrupt way. However, $ 301 million dollars sounds like a sufficient amount to change your mind . We only have to wait to see what kind of plans Disney has with the property of Pirates del Caribe, and discover if the actor is part of this vision or not.
On related issues, this was what Depp mentioned after his trial. Similarly, the actor releases a video to talk about his future.
This decision has logic. Johnny Depp is Captain Jack Sparrow, and after the increase in popularity that the actor had during his trial, replacing him would be a fairly negative decision for Disney, who in itself does not have happy fans of the Caribbean pirates.
