Johnny Depp just won his never-ending defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard. Now, a rumor on the website PopTopic says that Disney, in its infinite Dis-dom, wants the actor to return to swashbuckling in more “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies for an outrageous $301 million.
A former Disney executive also told PEOPLE that they “absolutely believe that Pirates is primed for a reboot with Johnny as Capt. Jack back on board” and that “there is just too much potential box-office treasure for a beloved character deeply rooted in the Disney culture.” The executive went on, “Jerry Bruckheimer is riding high on Tom Cruise’s huge success in Top Gun: Maverick, and there is a huge demand to bring back bankable Hollywood stars in hugely successful franchises.”
The latest defamation trial, which got a lot of attention, took over social media for weeks while it was going on. After the verdict was made and Heard was told she had to pay Depp $15 million in damages, both actors released statements saying they accepted the decision.
“False, very serious, and criminal allegations were levied at me via the media, which triggered an endless barrage of hateful content, although no charges were ever brought against me,”
“It had already traveled around the world twice within a nanosecond and it had a seismic impact on my life and my career,” Depp said:
Heard, on the other hand, said in a statement that she was “disappointed” about what the verdict meant “for other women” after she lost the case. “It’s not good. It takes us back to a time when a woman who spoke up could be shamed and embarrassed in public,” she wrote.
In fact, Depp’s fans have been asking him to return to the big screen since the verdict of the trial. Some people on social media have even suggested that he play some of his old roles in new movies.
#JohnnyDepp should return to his role as Jack Sparrow and give Amber and his haters a big fuck you. A comeback on the big screen and bring in the biggest Pirates movie ever. #JusticeForJohhnyDepp #DeppVsHeard
