Pirates of the Caribbean Producer Jerry Bruckheimer said he would “love” Johnny Depp to return to the franchise.
Depp has starred as Captain Jack Sparrow in five Pirates films since 2003 The Curse of the Black Pearl and ends in 2017 Dead men don’t tell fairy tales.
However, while a sixth entry is reportedly in development, Depp is no longer involved with the franchise after leaving it amid the high-profile legal battle between himself and ex-wife Amber Heard.
Asked by The Hollywood Reporter As for Depp being able to direct a future Pirates leg, Bruckheimer replied: “You’d have to ask that [Disney]. I can not answer this question. I really do not know it.”
He then added: “I would love to have him in the film. He’s a friend, a great actor, and it’s unfortunate that privacy creeps into everything we do.”
Depp complained The sun for defamation in 2018 after she published an article describing him as a “wife beater”. A British court ruled that the claim was “essentially true”.
Earlier this year, Depp sued Heard in a Virginia court for defamation, alleging she falsely implied that he was abusive to her in 2018 Washington Post Opinion titled “I spoke out against sexual violence – and faced the wrath of our culture. That needs to change.”
The jury ultimately ruled in favor of Depp, but also found in favor of Heard’s counterclaim, alleging that Depp’s attorney defamed her by calling her abuse allegations a “hoax.”
On Monday, December 19, Heard announced that she had settled the defamation case with Depp.
“After much deliberation, I have made a very difficult decision to resolve my ex-husband’s Virginia defamation case,” she wrote on Instagram.
“It’s important for me to say that I never made that choice. I defended my truth and in doing so my life as I knew it was destroyed. The slur I faced on social media is an amplified version of how women fall victim again when they come forward.
“I made no admission,” she continued. “It’s not a concession. There are no restrictions or gags regarding my voice moving forward.”
