Johnny Depp’s representative responds to Pirates of the Caribbean rumors

Edward Scissorhands star played Captain Jack Sparrow in the first five Pirates movies, the most recent of which was released in 2017.

Following Depp’s victory in his defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard, Australian news channel Pop Topic reported that Disney hoped to lure him back to play the character in a sixth film with a bid of $300 million (about £245 million). ).

However, his representatives told NBC News this week that the rumors were “made up,” per E! News.

Depp was asked about his relationship with Disney earlier in the trial, with a lawyer telling him:If Disney came to you with $300 million and a million alpacas, would nothing on this earth make you go back and work with Disney on a Pirates Of The Caribbean movie?

He then replied, “That is true.”

Although Heard’s article did not name Depp, his lawyers claimed it falsely suggested that he physically and sexually abused her during their relationship.
