Longtime Depp friend and ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ franchise producer Jerry Bruckheimer still stands behind the controversial actor, and is rumored to want him in the newest ‘Pirates’ film
Yo ho, yo ho, it’s a pirate’s life for Johnny Depp! There may still be hope for the controversial actor to don once again his brigand apparel and head out on the high seas! In light of Depp’s recent firing from the next Fantastic Beasts film, rumors have begun to swirl that he may be reprising his iconic role as Captain Jack Sparrow, even if it’s just a cameo. Despite the actor’s career troubles these last few years, he can always count on his good friend Jerry Bruckheimer, the famed producer of the Pirates franchise films.
Bruckheimer has defended Depp throughout the actor’s spousal abuse drama with ex-wife Amber Heard, and holds firm to their friendship even now. While such a casting decision ultimately lies in the hands of Disney, famed for its family-friendly and politically correct brand, there is still a chance. While at this point, this news is rumor and gossip, it gives hope to the fans that firmly believe Depp was, and remains, innocent. And a scurvy dog worth seeing with scabbard and compass once again.
