Can be ocean without water? Can be ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ without Johny Depp a.k.a. Jack Sparrow? Like or not but producers made their decision and Depp not included in future franchise cast.
“Yes. We’re talking to Margot Robbie. We are developing two Pirates scripts — one with her, one without,” producer Jerry Bruckheimer said when asked about the future of the “Pirates” franchise. “[Will Depp be back?] Not at this point. The future is yet to be decided.”
On May 2, Depp’s agent Jack Whigham testified that the actor was to receive a $22.5 million payday to star in the sixth “Pirates of the Caribbean” film. Whigham said Disney decided to go “in a different direction” after Depp’s ex Amber Heard published an op-ed reviving her domestic abuse allegations, Varietyreports.
