‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Producer Won’t Rule Out Johnny Depp’s Return


The Pirates of the Caribbean producer won’t rule out Johnny Depp’s return to the franchise.

As you may already know, the actor has played Captain Jack Sparrow in the films since 2003 when he appeared as the infamous marauder in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.

Depp would go on to play Captain Jack in four additional hit movies, who is much loved by fans all around the world.

The producer, Jerry Bruckheimer, has hope that Depp will be able to return to his role in a future film.

In an interview with The Times, Bruckheimer confirmed that the next film in the franchise was still in active development:

“Yes. We’re talking to Margot Robbie. We are developing two Pirates scripts — one with her, one without,”

When he was asked if Depp’s character was in either of these scripts, Bruckheimer responded:

 “Not at this point[, but] the future is yet to be decided.”

Disney made the decision to stop his return to any future projects, including a long-awaited sixth Pirates movie.

Due to the controversial allegations against Depp, the decision to blackball the 58-year-old was reportedly to save the family-friendly reputation of Disney’s franchise.

Depp launched a defamation lawsuit against Heard in 2019, after the Aquaman star described herself as a victim of domestic abuse in a 2018 article she penned in The Washington Post. The trial started Monday 11 April in Fairfax, Virginia.
