For Johnny Depp definitive rehabilitation is approaching: according to the British tabloid, The Sun, Depp will return as Jack Sparrowin the sixth film of the successful saga of Pirates of the Caribbean.
It would be a sensational return 5 years after the release of the last film on the adventures of the beloved pirate and above all after the star was fired from the production when ex-wife, Amber Hardaccused him of domestic violence. Process that though saw Depp win.
Johnny Depp again Pirate
The newspaper quotes a source, defined as informed, according to which Depp’s name appears in the list of artists and technical personnel called to participate in the filming. The film, entitled for now A Day At The Sea, will begin shooting in the United Kingdom in February, although it is not yet known who will be the director. The producer would instead be Bruce Hendrix, the same one who worked on the creation of the first three films of the franchise.
Amber Heard, the trial and the victory of Depp
The five Pirates of the Caribbean films, the first of which was released in 2003, have grossed an astronomical sum, almost €4 billion at the worldwide box office; and of these more than 200 million would go to Depp himself. But the actor was fired when Amber Hard accused him all the way to court. In June of this year, after weeks of hearings watched live by millions of fans, a Virginia state court ruled Heard’s allegations were defamatory. Now the legions of his fans, still growing if possible after the verdict, have also launched a petition to have him back in the guise of the pirate.
