Captain Jack Sparrow may be back soon. After leaving the franchise Pirates of the Caribbean in 2018, Johnny Depp would be in talks with Walt Disney to reprise his most iconic role.
Not that he had ever completely abandoned him, mind you: the actor continued to play him for the benefit of hospitalized children. And recently it has been included in flesh and blood (or rather in a hologram version) in themed attractions around the world, including Disneyland Paris, where the star had attended the premiere of the last chapter with Javier Bardem.
That bond continues to live on according to new rumors of Poptopic that they would like him in talks with the Mickey Mouse house for a $ 300 million dealwhich would also include a generous donation to the charitable causes that Depp supports.
After being downloaded by Warner Bros. in the saga of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Themprequel of Harry Potter and being replaced with Mads Mikkelsen in the third film (Dumbledore’s secrets, just landed in home video version on the Italian market), it would be a nice revenge for the 59-year-old actor and musician.
Meanwhile Depp was paparazzi at the Paris airport for the costume fitting of the next film, the first in two years. In the film he will play King Louis XVdirected by Maiwenn Le Besco.
In short, it seems that he is ready to turn the page and start a new chapter after winning a libel suit against ex-wife Amber Heard. Meanwhile, the actress continues to declare on TV that she loves him while reiterating the accusations of violence against him, which puts her in a delicate and precarious situation because American justice has already expressed itself in favor of Depp, declaring her in fact guilty of having declared false.
The 36-year-old actress, who has not fulfilled her promise to donate the proceeds of the divorce totally to charity, declares herself on the verge of bankruptcy, unable to compensate the plaintiff with the amount established by the court (although Depp may not ask her for anything). For this Amber Heard, which however was not cut by Warner Bros. from itself Aquaman 2 (his role, however, has been greatly reduced), he could go through a downward phase of his career, as well as an economic meltdown. All the more reason, in short, to keep faith with the intent of write a memoir and retell his side of the story, as well as pursuing the desire to appeal to overturn the sentence. Apparently she the actress would have declared that her tenure among the Hollywood stars would be over, so she would then have nothing to lose.
On the other hand, the article by the actress on Washington Post of 2018 that accused him – even without mentioning his name – of being a wifey hitter cost Depp – according to estimates by his legal team – a loss of revenue of $ 22 million.
