Stand if everything were confirmed, this would be proof of his definitive rehabilitation among the stars of Hollywood. An indiscretion of the British The Sunin fact, talks about a return of Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow, in a new chapter of the Pirates of the Caribbean. A return which, if confirmed, would represent a point of no return for the actor’s career, put to the test during the trial with his ex-wife Amber Heard.
The trial between Johnny Depp and Amber Heard ended with her conviction
This moment, for Johnny Depp, is still very delicate. Indeed, the trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard has just endedin which she was convicted of defaming him, accusing him of violence. The clashes between the two inevitably forced many directors not to include Depp’s name among the candidates for their roles. And, in fact, the actor’s career suffered a lot.
Now, however, he could return to acting in other films. Even if in fact American public opinion continues to remain divided between those who saw him as guilty and those who, on the other hand, have always supported him in the legal battle against his ex-wife. Their trial, among other things, was an unprecedented media event with hearings live and followed by millions of fans around the world. An example? A film has even been released – Hot Take: The Depp/Heard Trial – which reconstructs the passages of this private but hyper-publicized war.
After the verdict, many supporters of the actor – performer of Edward scissor hands – have clamored for Depp to be reinstated in the cast of the saga. And they asked for a strong stance on the part of film production companies.
The exclusive of The Sun: the actor will return as Jack Sparrow
Now the time may have come for her reinstatement among Hollywood’s most courted stars. The news was given by the British tabloid The Sun: Johnny Depp could return to play Jack Sparrowin the sixth film of the saga dei Pirates of the Caribbean. It would be a return five years after the release of the last one Salazar’s Revenge.
Indeed, according to the tabloid, the name of the actor (and also musician) would appear in the list of artists and technical personnel called to participate in the filming (in jargon is the famous call sheetthe summons sheet for the making of a film).
The The Sun gave more details. The film should be called A day at the sea and, apparently, filming is expected to kick off in February 2023. The name of the director is not known but Bruce Hendrix should be the producer of the film. Hendrix had already filled this role in the first three films of the franchise.
Not everyone believes Johnny Depp’s version
Now that all allegations of domestic violence have been denied, Johnny Depp is ready for a new stage in his life. But, even though the court in Fairfax, Virginia ruled that Amber Heard’s allegations were defamatory, many do not believe in his innocence. And, indeed, they continue to maintain that every activity of the 59-year-old actor should be boycotted.
An example of this? Johnny Depp recently attended the fashion show event of Savage X FentyRihanna’s lingerie brand. Her cameo (robe, scoop neck tank top, and pajama bottoms) was criticized by many Heard supporters. In fact, on the web the hashtag #DitchDepp has gone viralor “Molla Depp”: an invitation to Rihanna to take another position towards the actor.
The decision to involve Depp for this event was also criticized by the British artist Olly Alexander: announced that she will no longer wear RiRi’s branded clothes.
But Johnny Depp doesn’t seem to care too much about all this outrage. He’s back playing with Jeff Beck (he also performed in Italy, at Umbria Jazz) and returned to the set after a three-year absence in period drama Jeanne Du Barryin which he plays Louis XV.
Apparently, then, will return to direct a film 25 years from The brave, film presented (and subsequently rejected by the critics) at the Cannes Film Festival. This time it will be about a feature film on the Livorno painter Modiglianiproduced by Al Pacino, based on a play by Dennis McIntyre and set in Paris in 1916.
