There are rumours on the Internet that Disney is seriously considering bringing Johnny Depp back to star in a Pirates of the Caribbean reboot.
Now, before you all get excited, this news (or rumour is a better word) comes from We Got This Covered’s sources.
They tend to be wrong more than they end up being right, so this might not happen.
However, there are a lot of reasons why Disney might end up considering bringing Johnny Depp back as Captain Jack.
First off, there’s a lot of new evidence in the whole Amber Heard vs Johnny Depp case.
It’s now not looking so certain that Johnny Depp was the abuser in his relationship with Heard.
Johnny Depp might play Captain Jack Sparrow again
There re multiple phone calls between the two which suggest it might have been the other way around.
However, there’s also evidence on the contrary, such as Depp’s texts to his friend and fellow actor, Paul Bettany.
That said, the case is still ongoing, so we can’t really say anything about what really went on until that’s all settled.
What we can say is that Disney was far too quick in sacking Depp and he does deserve a second chance.
It’s a pretty well-known fact that the Pirates movies would have been nothing without Depp’s performance.
It might be hard to do a new Pirates movie without him. I’d say virtually impossible.
What do you make of this news?
