We know that Disney is about to launch a new Pirates of the Caribbean movie, but we do not see Depp in it. Stuart Beattie – the original scriptwriter of the series, has confirmed this. But fans will not let that happen.
Their petition for the return of Depp as Jack Sparrow has collected over 13,000 signatures on the Internet. Most of the signers write that they want the actor’s return because he made the movies incredibly funny and they not imagine “Pirates of the Caribbean 6 “without him. Some say in his defense that he has been “too demonized” by the showbiz-industry.
Another petition has collected over 5000 signatures. It’s in defense of Depp, whose “personal problems” have brought him a lot of trouble lately. His divorce with Amber Heard, attempts to ruin her career, and allegations of domestic violence, have contributed to his overly negative image in the media.
It is said that because of these accusations Disney does not intend to work with him in the future. In addition, the studio is looking for a new face to start everything from scratch. And the results of the latest “Salazar’s Revenge” were far from encouraging. Depp himself seems to have exhausted himself in this role, and it’s for a substitute to be found.
