Disney has allegedly offered Johnny Depp a USD $301 million contract deal for him to return as Jack Sparrow in another Pirates film and a Disney Plus series!
Disney is desperate for Depp! According to an industry insider, the company is preparing a USD $301 million deal as a formal apology and a request for the beloved actor to return as Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
Remember hearing about how Johnny Depp allegedly said he wouldn’t do another Pirates film even for $300 million and a million alpacas? Well, although it may have just been a joke, Disney are willing to put their money where Depp’s mouth is and offer him even more!
According to a trusted source close to Disney, the Mouse House company is putting together a deal too good to turn down!
“Disney are very interested in patching up their relationship with Johnny Depp. They reached out to the actor prior to his defamation trial against Amber Heard and asked whether he would be interested in returning for another Pirates film or two.
“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,” the insider alleged.
According to the source Disney is reportedly willing to go above and beyond and offer USD$301 million, exceeding the amount Heard’s lawyer claimed that Depp would refuse.
During the defamation trial, Heard’s attorney, Bredehoft, asked, “Is Disney aware that Mr. Depp has testified under oath that he would not take another Pirates of the Caribbean franchise role for $300 million and a million alpacas?” The whole courtroom laughed at the outlandish claims by the disgraced former small-town models claims. And even big shot Disney executives were listening in.
“Disney are 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.”
It seems as Johnny Depp currently has is eyes set on playing Gomez Addams in Tim Burton’s re-imaging of the classic television series Addams Family so he maybe busy for the next year or so.
However, Disney are excited and hopeful to be working with 58-year-old actor once again, no matter the project.
