TJob prospects are starting to improve for Johnny Depp, as a version circulates that ties him back to Disney’s plans.
According to Australian media outlet Poptopic, there is huge interest in filming a new movie in the Pirates of the Caribbean saga, with the 59-year-old actor once again as the main character.
Media outlets claim to have conducted an interview with a source close to Disney, in which it was revealed that the company acknowledges the haste of severing relations with Disney. Johnny Depp when he was exposed by ex-wife Amber Hart and this led to a controversial trial in which the actor shook off charges of alleged violence against women.
“Disney is very interested in working out his relationship with Johnny Depp. They contacted the actor before his defamation trial against Amber Heard and asked him if he would be interested in returning for another Pirates movie or two, a source told Poptopic.
In this regard, the publication refers to the fact that $ 301 million will be put on the negotiating table for the translator of the scandalous Jack Sparrow.
“They want him back as Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean and a Disney+ spin-off series about the youth of the captain of the Black Pearl,” he pointed out.
It should be noted that in the last 19 years, Deep played a pirate in five films before Disney dropped him from the sixth and final installment, which meant he lost a salary of $22.5 million.
“What I can tell you is that the studio has already drafted a Jack Sparrow movie so they really hope that Johnny will forgive them and return as his iconic character,” the source added.
Meanwhile, the network E! mentions that a source connected to the actor told NBC News that “this is a fabrication,” but Depp’s and Disney’s representatives have yet to issue a statement on the matter.
