We may or may not be getting Johnny Depp back as Jack Sparrow, but it’s kinda confirmed a sixth Pirates of the Caribbean movie is going to start production soon. Even if we do get Depp back as Mr. Sparrow, he might be demanding his payment from Disney for playing the role again in kind, specifically with 1 million alpacas!
After Jack Sparrow set forth into the horizon with his beloved monkey friend and the Pearl ship, his story seemed to have been set and done for. But whether that story will be continued is up to Jerry Bruckheimer, who confirmed the production of the sixth movie in the series.

We’d Definitely Love To See Him Play The Mad Pirate Again
While Johnny Depp’s role in the upcoming movie is still in doubt and uncertainty, one of the long-time producers of the POTC franchise has given a yes to production for the sixth POTC movie.
To add more to the great news, one of the original writers of the POTC franchise, Ted Elliott, has been confirmed as a writer for the new movie! Jerry Bruckheimer spoke about having Elliott back on the team-
“I’m very excited, it’s going to be terrific. We’re just putting this together right now. We’re still working on the screenplay, but it’s very unique and has one of the original writers who wrote the first one, Ted Elliott; he’s writing it. He’s got a great command of the language, and he writes great characters and tells terrific stories.”
Will Johnny Depp be back, though? Let’s hope so because the POTC franchise has Jack Sparrow written all over it.
Johnny Depp On The Director’s Seat After A Long Time
Johnny Depp is going to direct a new movie after almost 25 years in 2023. Depp has only ever directed one full-length movie in his career, which was The Brave in 1997, in which he cast himself alongside Marlon Brando.
After all those years, Depp will finally be working behind the camera again. The focus of his new movie will be on the life of a 20th-century painter named Amedeo Modigliani, an Italian painter whose work only got recognized after his death. It has also been suggested that he will be producing the movie as well, and that too with legendary actor Al Pacino.
The release date for the said movie is yet to be known, let alone the title of the movie.
