Jerry Bruckheimer Gets Candid about Johnny Depp’s Return For The Pirates Of The Caribbean Movie

Jerry Bruckheimer, who produced the five previous “Pirates of the Caribbean” installments, had something to say about Johnny Depp continuing to appear in the franchise.

Depp is currently suing his ex-wife, Amber Heard for deformation over an op-ed in the Washington Post, which she described herself as a “public figure representing domestic abuse.” Though Depp was not named in the article, he claims it cost him acting roles, including a potential appearance in a sixth “Pirates” film. Disney dropped Depp from the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise and he lost his role as Gellert Grindelwald to Mads Mikkelsen in the “Fantastic Beasts.” 

The actor has portrayed Jack Sparrow in all five movies. And now, Bruckheimer talked to The SundayTimes about whether Depp would return, “Not at this point,” Bruckheimer added, “The future is yet to be decided.”

He also confirmed that the script is in the works…“Yes. We’re talking to Margot Robbie. We are developing two Pirates scripts—one with her, one without.” The “one with her” is reportedly a brand-new original tale that inspired by the long-running attraction at Disneyland. And not a spin-off  from the original franchise. “The one without Robbie was also described as a reboot film rather than a continuation of the series. “Chernobyl” creator Craig Mazin and “Pirates of the Caribbean” series veteran Ted Elliot have signed on to develop the latter film.

And right now, fans are petitioning to have Depp return to the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, and Depp said in the court about Disney, they didn’t remove my character from the rides. They didn’t stop selling dolls of Captain Jack Sparrow. They didn’t stop selling anything. They just didn’t want there to be something trailing behind me that they’d find.” But some people believe that they both abused and were toxic to each other. So for now, “Pirates of the Caribbean” projects are making without Johnny Depp.
