Default Johnny Depp is set 'to return' to Pirates of the Caribbean

[Johnny Depp is set 'to return'
to Pirates of the Caribbean and
is in talks with Disney about
'$300 million deal'
after defamation
trial win against Amber Heard
The actor, 59, was the major lead in five
Pirates movies over the past 15 years
He was dropped by the Disney franchise
in 2018 after the release of Dead Men Tell No Tales
A source told Poptopic that the media house
is working on a '$301 million deal'
to coax Depp back
Depp sued Heard over the
Washington Post op-ed in 2018 that didn't
identify him, but clearly branded him
as a domestic abuser
The Edward Scissorhands star told
the jury he would not work with Disney
again after executives made him feel
'guilty until proven innocent' ]


https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbi...lion-deal.html


He is good at that roll
so I hope it gets going.

Quite right too!

Let him slay Mera an evil sea hag after it tried to turn other pirates against him with lies.

Gross. Hope it flops. I won't pretend that the first couple of Pirates films weren't good or that he wasn't good in them, but it's worth remembering that the last couple of films were unwatchable trash and there's no reason to assume that any future ones will be any better with a fat drunk old Depp at the helm.

Also it's Disney so will inevitably aim for high levels of diversity, and thus be slammed by the lowkey white power MRA Depp stans who have made up his recent following.

A quick google suggests that these are completely unsubstantiated rumours . Depp also swore in court that he would never work with Disney again.

Perjury is a very real thing you know.

Still bitter

Fat and drunk

If he takes the deal I very much doubt it would flop. I won't watch it as not my sort of film, but for a lot of people it is. He's also in a very powerful position to negotiate a huge fee. Fair play to him.

Knew you'd get the MRA in there somehow

Pirates Of The Caribbean are meant to just be fun Movies.

Unless the "diverse" casting is like Rountree off NCIS:LA then people would just be being silly imo, because the Films aren't meant to be that deep.

I think he should consider it. All of his fans want to see captain jack again.
And he won the case, so I don't see why not.

Yes but these are very silly people you have to remember, they support wife beaters, sniffle about men's rights and pretend that "ex"-alcoholics chugging pints of Stella with dinner isn't a red flag.

Also again, whilst I will condeed that the original Pirates! trilogy were indeed good fun (in fact, I'd argue that the first film is a classic and it's a shame Depp has ruined it for many with his behaviour) ... it should have ended there at the 3rd film which closed out the main arc.

The 4th and 5th films are garbage and a 6th one will also be garbage. This is totally separate to my opinion of Depp. I still quite liked him as an actor and especially as Jack Sparrow when the 4th film came out... but it was boring cash-cow dirge bordering on unwatchable. They literally banked on people liking the character enough for it to make money, and put zero effort into the plot or script.

There you go, case closed. He's the only reason ANYONE watched the 4th and 5th movies. They were objectively terrible films .

Just to prove it's not just me being biased against Depp, here's the Rotten Tomatoes scores;



1st movie a great film
2nd not so great but watchable
3rd questionable
4th trash
5th even worse trash

I've only ever watched the first one and I turned it off after about a hour. I wasn't feeling it.
