Disney President finally opens up about Johnny Depp’s future as Captain Jack Sparrow
After a stormy couple of years in which he was involved in legal battles with a British tabloid and his ex-wife, Amber Heard, the buzz around Johnny Depp has finally begun to turn positive. His professional life suffered as a result of the problems that surrounded him for a long time, as he lost not one, but two huge franchises, namely Pirates Of The Caribbean and Fantastic Beasts. While fans were upset and had been protesting against the studio’s decision, what if we told you he would return to the former?
If you were unaware, Disney was busy working on the next film in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, as well as a female-centric spin-off that was speculated to be starring Margot Robbie. While the latter was dropped, the former was still in the news. Sean Bailey, president of Disney Studio Motion Picture Production, is now speaking about it.
According to Comicbook, when questioned about the future of the film’s future, Bailey said, “We think we have a really good, exciting story that honors the films that have come before also has something new stay.” When asked about whether Johnny Depp will return, Bailey said he was “noncommittal at this point.”
