Johnny Depp NOT Returning in Pirates of the Caribbean Reboot

We previously reported that Disney is in the midst of concocting a Pirates of the Caribbean reboot, but like we told you it’s missing the key ingredient, Jack Sparrow.

Sorry to burst Disney’s bubble but Pirates of the Caribbean only works with Johnny Depp as the star. The movies survival has lasted this long because of Depp. Read on…

Johnny Depp NOT Returning in Pirates of the Caribbean RebootCelebNMovies247.com reports that the original Pirates of the Caribbean screenwriter Stuart Beattie has strongly hinted that Johnny Depp will no longer be involved with the franchise.

Like we reported last week, Pirates of the Caribbean franchise is arguably a masterpiece but a reboot without Depp spells flop if you ask us.

Over the past few years, Johnny Depp has given some pretty bizarre interviews, including talks of shooting a Titanic remake in his bathtub.

Not to mention the backlash due to recent allegations of domestic abuse by the actor’s ex-wife, Amber Heard.

In a new interview, Stuart Beattie does not confirm nor deny that Johnny Depp has been given the boot from the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise as Jack Sparrow.

When asked about Depp being finished with the franchise, Beattie nodded and had this to say.

I think he’s had a great run. Obviously, he’s made that character his own and it’s become the character he’s most famous for now.

Will you go and watch Pirates of the Caribbean 5 without Johnny Depp?

We’ll pass.
