Jerry Bruckheimer, producer of the adventure series Pirates of the Caribbean, told Collider that Johnny Depp’s participation in the new episode remains “in doubt.”
“Now we are working on a project. We will try to finish it soon and pass it to Disney. I hope they enjoy it, ”said Bruckheimer.
When asked about Depp’s possible involvement, the producer replied that there might not be room for Jack Sparrow in the new version of the plot.
The publication Collider suggests that if Depp had the opportunity to return the “Pirates”, then perhaps in an episodic role. It is unlikely that the favorite character of the audience Jack Sparrow will again become the main character of the film.
The original film “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” turned Depp into an international superstar and earned him an Oscar nomination for his role as the sailor-wretched Jack Sparrow. Depp starred in each subsequent film and literally merged with this hero.
Recently, the actor survived a difficult divorce from his ex-wife Amber Heard. At the trial, he provided dozens of videos proving that it was Depp who was the subject of domestic violence. Amber Heard later admitted that from time to time she raised her hand to her husband.
