Johnny Depp could return to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. According to reports, Disney has offered Hollywood star Johnny Depp a whopping Rs 2,355 crore (USD 301 million) deal to reprise his iconic role as Jack Sparrow in the ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean’ franchise and a Disney Plus series. According to an industry insider, the company is preparing a $301 million deal as a formal apology and request for the actor to reprise his role as Jack Sparrow.
According to a source close to Disney, the Mouse House is working on a deal, according to poptrack.au. “Disney is keen on repairing their relationship with Johnny Depp.” Prior to his defamation trial against Amber Heard, they contacted the actor and asked if he would be interested in returning for another Pirates film or two.
“I know corporate sent him a gift basket along with a heartfelt letter, but I’m not sure how he received it.” “However, I can tell you that the studio has already written a draught for a film about Jack Sparrow, so they are very hopeful that Johnny will forgive them and return as his iconic character,” the source said.
According to the source, Disney is willing to go above and beyond, offering USD$301 million, which is more than Heard’s lawyer claimed Depp would refuse.
Bredehoft, Heard’s attorney, asked during the defamation trial, “Is Disney aware that Mr. Depp has testified under oath that he would not take another ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ franchise role for $300 million and a million alpacas?”
“Disney is preparing a USD$301 million deal that will include a significant donation to a charity of Depp’s choosing. The agreement calls for Johnny Depp to reprise his role as Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean 6 as well as a spin-off Disney Plus series about the Captain of the Black Pearl’s early life.”
