Johnny Depp Given a Second Chance as Jack Sparrow?

It’s been hard to watch Johnny Depp be “cancelled.” The last Pirates film was a flop and her personal life has over powered his career.

When talk of yet another Pirates movie came up, Disney made one thing clear- Johnny Depp would not reprise his role as Jack Sparrow. They would be saving million by not having him, which was their excuse. But we often wondered if his personal life had anything to do with the decision. After all, Johnny Depp is a “Disney Legend.”

All of this might change. According to an article from We Got This Covered, the 56-year-old actor is being considered to reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow.

An extremely trusted source of the website is telling them that Johnny Depp is being considered again. All of this comes after recent events in Depp’s personal life. For years, his estranged wife has played the victim, making people (and maybe even Disney) turn against the actor. That was until tapes were released in court that paints Depp as the victim and his former wife the abuser.

As it stands, the sixth film in the series is currently being penned by Craig Mazin and Ted Elliott, although little to no details are known yet about the plot. There’s also no confirmation, yet, of Depp returning.
