As Jack Sparrow, Johnny Depp will return to Pirates of the Caribbean.
Five years after his last film, actor Johnny Depp is returning to the Pirates of the Caribbean series and will play swashbuckling favorite Jack Sparrow once more.
In 2018, Depp was fired from the Disney franchise after executives claimed they wanted to inject “fresh vigor” into the show.
However, months after he triumphed in his high-profile court spat with his ex-wife Amber Heard, 36, in June, his former employers are now eager to have him back for a sixth film and a $300 million Disney Plus spin-off series.
A new call sheet from the project indicates that Depp will take part in a test shoot in the UK in February. The working title of the movie is reportedly A Day At The Sea.
The Sun was told by a source;
Johnny is expected to reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow, and production is likely to begin at the beginning of February in a UK location that will remain unnamed.
“Everything is in its early phases, and the project, A Day At The Sea, still doesn’t have a director attached to it.”
The new project has Bruce Hendricks, who worked on the first three movies, listed as an executive producer, but no other information has been released.
The source also said;
The entire endeavor is cloaked in mystery, and Disney wants to keep as much of it hidden as they can.
Disney wants the actor to reprise his legendary role not just in the sixth movie but also in a spin-off series that explores the character’s origins, it was also learned.
