Johnny Depp and his return in 'Pirates of the Caribbean'

The truth behind Disney's proposal to Johnny Depp for his return in Pirates of the Caribbean


R. Gelfenstein - On Monday, June 27, rumors circulated that Depp would return to play the role of Captain Jack Sparrow after the Australian website PopTopic published an alleged deal whereby the actor would return to the franchise for about $300 million.

"The deal reportedly requires Johnny Depp to return as Jack Sparrow," the source said. "Disney is very interested in resolving its relationship with Johnny Depp."

"They contacted the actor before his defamation lawsuit against Amber Heard and asked him if he was interested in returning for one or two pirate movies," they said. "They really hope Johnny will forgive them and come back as their iconic character."

Social media users quickly went crazy at the apparent news, and many realized they could no longer "wait and see" the movie.

However, a Representative for Depp now evaluated the rumors firsthand to confirm that it was all false. "It's made up," a depp spokesman told NBC News.

The possibility of Depp returning to the franchise was the subject of testimony in a defamation lawsuit between the actor and Amber Heard, his ex-wife. The trial ended in early June 2022.

Depp was asked, "If Disney came to you with $300 million and a million alpacas, would nothing in the world make you come back and work with Disney on a Pirates of the Caribbean movie?"

"That's right," Depp replied.
