Pirates of the Caribbean 6 are already confirmed by the officials but the fans seem to be not overwhelmed with this news.
The blockbuster adventure thriller film was launched in 2003 and has since become a franchise. Starring Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow. His admirers are unhappy with his recent developments.
Anyone who has been following the news or the internet knows that the star has sued her ex-wife Amber Heard in Virginia for defamation over bogus charges.
Johnny recently discussed his involvement in the film in court, causing a stir for many reasons. The actor said in court that he would not reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in the next sequel. Fans were ecstatic when Disney announced the movie’s revival.
Disney has already announced the sixth installment of the movie. However, the series’ star, Johnny Depp, will not be returning for his principal role. Why? Here’s everything you need to know.
Why Won’t Johnny Depp Return to Pirates of the Caribbean 6?
In the continuing trial, Johnny Depp accuses Amber Heard of sabotaging her career by writing an op-ed exposing their personal connection.
When Amber Heard accused him of assault, he had to leave his job, including his part as Jack Sparrow. He further said that the lawsuit wrecked her acting career and cost him several parts.
In the sixth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, Johnny Depp, a prominent Hollywood actor, has declared that he would not return.
A few days following the internet news report, Disney formally terminated relations with Johnny Depp. Disney wants to be in safer hands, so they handed away one of their next movie’s characters. In the continuing defamation trial, people are now finding out the truth.
“I wasn’t aware of it, but that doesn’t surprise me,” Johnny Depp stated in court. I was a wife-beater for two years. So, I’m sure Disney terminated relationships to be safe. The #MeToo campaign was well underway.”
The courtroom then questioned whether he would return to the film if Disney offered him $300 million. The actor rejected it, stating that such a scenario is implausible.
Johnny Depp’s trial with ex-wife Amber Heard
In the same trial, Depp spoke about how he felt when her ex-wife co-ed their relationship with the public. While the article has never put Johnny’s name, it was still very clear that Amber was talking about him. He further talks about how those articles were so disturbing for his career and himself.
In the courtroom, the actor said, “I would be a real simpleton to not think that there was an effect on my career based on Ms. Heard’s words, whether they mentioned my name or not,”
In 2016, it was the first time when amber has said about Johnny being an abuser but as the second allegation was made, he explained how that has started to make a big impact on his career and how the “Allegations have changed his career”.
He pointed out, “Once that happened, I lost then,”
“No matter the outcome of this trial, I’ll carry that for the rest of my days… I’m suing her over defamation and the various falsities that she used to bring my life to an end” Johnny further revealed.
Any fans pointed out the same with the recently released movie, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore where Disney has not cast Johnny as Dumbledore.
So if Johnny Depp wins this case, are Pirates of the Caribbean and Fantastic beasts going to re-hire him? Cos $50m ain’t enough to make up for what that man has lost
