Johnny Depp wants Disney to see through their error and bring him back for Pirates of the Caribbean 6. As for the paycheck, Depp plans to get $50 million from Disney and use that to clear himself out of all the legal issues. It won’t be a surprise if Disney offers Johnny $50 million for POTC 6 as the movie series have earned billions over the box office.
Johnny Depp to return as Captain Jack Sparrow?
Johnny Depp asking $50 million from Disney to return as Captain Jack Sparrow in the next Pirates movie doesn’t make much sense. The only reason the report mentions a $50 million figure is because the same amount is mentioned in the lawsuits.
Depp already got $55 million for “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” and hence going lower don’t make any sense. Also, it is not clear whether Disney with proceeding with the Pirates of the Caribbean 6 or the reboot with Margot Robbie. But one thing is sure that Johnny Depp loves to play Jack Sparrow and hence he would surely return if Disney wants that.
