Johnny Depp To Return As Jack Sparrow?

Johnny Depp, having been vindicated after Amber Heard’s claim of him being a domestic abuser, is looking at a $300 million windfall to return as Captain Jack Sparrow.

Wow, Amber Heard must be losing her mind.

Embattled actor Johnny Depp is rumored to be getting paid more than $300 million to return to “Pirates of the Caribbean,” after getting unceremoniously dumped from the franchise in 2018 amid abuse allegations by ex Amber Heard. A source close to Disney allegedly dropped the bombshell in a new interview with Aussie outlet Poptopic.

“The deal is reportedly for Johnny Depp to return as Jack Sparrow,” the little leaking birdie claimed to the Down Under entertainment website.

There were rumors the franchise was going to cast a woman for the lead role. Thankfully, that looks like it wont happen now.

The 59-year-old “Donnie Brasco” star had played the swashbuckling buccaneer in five “Pirates” movies over the last 19 years, before Disney dropped him from the sixth and final installment in the wake of 36-year-old Heard’s 2018 Washington Post op-ed which Depp claimed defamed him as a domestic abuser. This reportedly caused the “Edward Scissorhands” icon to lose out on a $22.5 million payday.

I regard Johnny Depp the same way I like Tom Cruise. Yes, they’re both eccentric, but they have a gift for finding good roles in good films. Depp just needs to find better love interests, because his last one was a borderline psychopath.

P.S.Apparently, Depp’s representative is now saying the actor is not in talks to appear as Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean. Not sure I believe it, but I anted to post this in case the story is correct.

  1. $300 Million vs. 22.5? One heck of a victory for Depp and salt in the wound for Heard!
    Personally, if a relationship goes bad, it’s simply over! No mooning about, stalking and leaving hundreds of voicemails. No plotting evil deeds, you simply…move on! What could be easier?

  2. In my humble opinion, JD wasn’t fired because of AH’s allegations as much as the studio didn’t want to keep spending the $ that JD was being paid to be in the movies. A lot of people are asking why JD was fired, but both Amber & Ezra are able to keep making films.

  3. Mike AKA Proof – I was dating a girl in college – great softball player – and she broke up with me after the best lacrosse game I ever had. She broke up with me because I got her roses for Valentine’s Day.

    She dumped me, and I said, “Okay,” before walking away. She stood there, dumbfounded.

    MelP – I would honestly rather see Depp before any of the others. The guy has a great list of filsm,and Heard has… Aquaman?

  4. I binged “The Stand” on Paramount plus that was made a year ago. Amber Heard & Ezra Miller basically played themselves. Talk about art imitates life…

    1. John – When I was in college, a friend of mine gave me the book. The FULL book. I think it was 1,500 pages. The book was great, but good grief, it took forever to finish it.

      I thought the 1994 ABC (?) version was really good. The one with Molly Ringwald and Gary Sinise.
