Disney has already drafted a script for a film on Jack Sparrow. They are quite hopeful that Johnny will forgive them and return as his legendary character. The report went on to say that Disney is contemplating making a $300 million offer to Depp.
Under oath during the explosive libel lawsuit trial, Depp has stated that he will not return to the Disney film under any circumstances. Depp further said, “I was the subject of this wife-beater rumor for two years. So, I think Disney severed connections out of an abundance of caution.
He continued, “The #MeToo movement had already gained significant traction by that time. Nobody took my cartoon off the games. They continued to market Captain Jack Sparrow dolls. They kept on selling even though business was slow. Basically, they have worried about discovering anything sneaking up on me from behind.”
