Recent years have seen much discussion surrounding the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, with fans eagerly awaiting its upcoming film. Sean Bailey, president of Walt Disney Studios Motion Picture Production, responded to rumors that Johnny Depp would once more be playing the lead role in a new film.
Overview of Rumors
In an interview with the Fresh York Times, Bailey made a few allusions to the plot of the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean movie and expressed excitement about coming up with something that both pays tribute to the earlier movies and adds something fresh. “We think we have a really good, exciting story,” Bailey said, “that both honor the films that have come before and also has something new stay.” Bailey said he was “at this point noncommittal” about Depp’s role.
Reports about the creation of a sixth movie and a spinoff (of the 2017 movie) starring Margot Robbie surfaced in 2020. The Robbie-centered spinoff, though, was scrapped. However, there is one lingering query: Will Johnny Depp return to the role of Captain Jack Sparrow?
Walt Disney Studios has not made a firm declaration, although franchise producer Jerry Bruckheimer has stated that he would want to see Depp return. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Bruckheimer expressed his desire for Depp to make a comeback and stressed the importance of letting professional accomplishments and relationships come before personal issues.
You’d have to ask [Disney],” Bruckheimer continued. I’m unable to respond to that query. Really, I have no idea. He’d be perfect for the picture, in my opinion. It’s bad that our personal lives seep into everything we do, especially since he’s a great actor and a friend.
When Johnny Depp’s ex-wife Amber Heard accused him of domestic abuse, he was fired from the Pirates of the Caribbean film series. Due to the accusation, Depp sued Heard for defamation, which he ultimately prevailed last year.
