Disney has reportedly offered Hollywood star, Johnny Depp, a massive deal for him to return as the iconic character of Jack Sparrow in the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise and a Disney Plus series.
Did Disney apologize to Johnny Depp?
Quite recently Johnny Depp was fighting a defamation case against his ex-wife Amber Heard. And, now that the actor has won the $50 million defamation case, he has been trying to get his career back. According to the latest report, Disney has sent an apology letter to the actor, along with massive prize money to return back as Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean. Johnny starred as Jack Sparrow in a total of five parts of the famous movie franchise.
According to reports, Disney, making a sweet gesture, offered the actor a whopping 2355 crores ($301 million) to return as the iconic Jack Sparrow in Pirates Of The Caribbean.
However, it is not confirmed whether the actor will return back to the franchise as the reports only suggest that the company had sent a gift hamper with an apology letter but there is no news about how Johnny has received this sweet gesture.
Offer to return as Jack Sparrow
Furthermore, Disney is even willing to go beyond this deal to get Depp back into Jack Sparrow’s role, according to the sources.
Disney insider further added, “Disney is prepping a deal for USD$301 million deal that will include a sizable donation to a charity of Depp’s choice. The deal is reportedly for Johnny Depp to return as Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean 6 and a spin-off Disney Plus series about the early life of the Captain of The Black Pearl.”
“I know corporate sent him a gift basket with a very heartfelt letter, but I’m unsure how it was received. But what I can tell you is that the studio has already penned up a draft for a film about Jack Sparrow — so they are very hopeful that Johnny will forgive them and return as his iconic character,” a source said.
If one recalls, Depp had said that he would not return to Pirates Of The Caribbean now even if he was paid a sum of something as huge as $300 million.
‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ was not the only franchise from which the actor was removed. Warner Bros also released him from the Fantastic Beasts franchise following the Washington Post op-ed published by the ‘Aquaman’ actress.
