This hurt the actor deeply and during the hearing, Johhny Depp claimed that he would never take the role of Captain Jack Sparrow again even if Disney offered him $300 million for the role. It is a game of wait-and-watch now as we see the actor sticking to his words or adoring the love of his fans to give them a last flick before dropping the crown forever.
