More or less reliable rumors about Hollywood are published every day. Some are nothing more than mere nonsense on which the existence of certain pages is based, but others end up gaining traction. That is what has happened with one claimed that Disney had offered Johnny Depp $301 million to return as Jack Sparrow in ‘Pirates of the Caribbean 6’, something that the actor himself has had to deny through his representative.
The rumor had a very unreliable source, but it was too juicy a story not to be covered by certain media outlets. That prompted Depp’s rep to make a blunt statement in this regard that could not make it all clearer: “that’s an invention“.
And it is that the information already smelled of singe from the moment in which the actor had affirmed in the controversial trial that faced Amber Heard that he would not play Sparrow for Disney again even if they offered him 300 million dollars. Hence, a million more was added so that he could say that he did not break his word to materialize, something that was never even a possibility.
That’s not to say that it’s completely impossible for Depp to change days and someday reprise the role of the famous pirate. Ultimately, the producer Jerry Bruckheimer He left the door open for that to happen, not to mention that for a few weeks several Hollywood insiders affirmed that it was no longer impossible for that to happen. However, today there is nothing.
Let’s hope it’s not necessary to deny something like that again, but hey, the media have been even heavier with the supposed replacement of Amber Heard in ‘Aquaman 2’…
