When Pirates Of The Caribbean 6 sans Johnny Depp was announced, a lot of fuss was created. The actor became extremely well-known for playing Captain Jack Sparrow, and he has remained a crucial element of the franchise. The lead role in the spin-off was cast with Margot Robbie, but it appears that Disney has put the project on hold. For the heartbreaking details, scroll below.
As most people are aware, Johnny was never asked to return for the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. There were several theories about the cause, including the accusations against Amber Heard and his supposed unprofessional conduct on site. A brand-new spin-off with a female lead has been unveiled. Margot was given the position.
Even while fans were thrilled to see Margot Robbie take on the role, they were disappointed to find that Johnny Depp would not be returning for the Pirates of the Caribbean spin-off. However, the actress has acknowledged that Disney appears to have lost interest in the project, leading to the movie’s shelvement.
Margot Robbie told Vanity Fair, “We had an idea and we were developing it for a while, ages ago, to have more of a female-led — not totally female-led, but just a different kind of story — which we thought would’ve been really cool. But I guess they don’t want to do it.”
Additionally, there have been rumors that following Johnny Depp’s victory in the defamation case against Amber Heard, Disney apologized to him. According to reports, they even made him a $300 million offer to rejoin the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
Can Margot Robbie’s comment allude to Johnny Depp’s potential comeback as Captain Jack Sparrow? We have much optimism.
