After being fired from the franchise in 2018, Johnny Depp is apparently planning to “return” to Pirates of the Caribbean. Depp played the main character in five Pirates movies over the previous 15 years, and in Dead Men Tell No Tales, he embarked on what was reportedly his last journey aboard the Black Pearl.
After winning his defamation lawsuit against Amber Heard, the actor, 59, has reportedly been in talks with Disney over a “$300 million agreement,” according to a source who spoke to Poptopic.
Just a Rough Patch
According to the insider, Disney has just contacted Depp in an effort to mend their broken relationship. Before the actor’s defamation trial against Amber Heard, they contacted him and inquired about his willingness in returning for one or two more pirate movies, they claimed.
The media company is apparently working on a “$301 million deal” to persuade Depp to return soon, and as a gesture of goodwill, they are also believed to be adding a “sizeable payment” to a charity of Depp’s choice.
