Fans Revolt After Jerry Bruckheimer Says Johnny Depp Jack Sparrow Future is ‘Undecided’

One of the most popular franchises Johnny Depp was a part of was Pirates of the Caribbean. When the first film came out in 2003, the critics and audience were taken by surprise. Many had expected the Curse of the Black Pearl to be a dud at the box office. Since then, Pirates of the Caribbean has earned $654.3 million worldwide and has become one of the biggest franchises for Disney. It was mostly because of the character of Johnny Depp’s character, Jack Sparrow. But now, the producer Jerry Bruckheimer that his role’s future is still ‘undecided’ in the franchise.

The franchise had planned a sixth and final movie to finally end the story of Captain Jack Sparrow. But that was canceled after Amber Heard wrote the op-ed in the Wahington Post. Also, it is reported that the studio was collecting unsavory articles about the actor. But when he was blamed for domestic violence. Right now, Johhny Depp has sued his ex-wife for the same. The defamation trial is going on for weeks now.

Though Jerry Bruckheimer says the future is undecided, Depp seems quite firm in his decision to not return to the franchise. He said he would turn down Disney’s offer even if they paid him $300 million. He has decided not to return for the Pirates of the Caribbean movie. Though Disney has managed to fix their issues with actors in the past, this time it might not be the case.

The studio does have plans to make the sixth film, Bruckheimer told in the same interview. Margot Robbie will be in the lead role. The release date of the film is yet not confirmed by the studio but they are preparing the script of the film.
