JACK’S BACK! Former Disney Exec Says Capt. Jack Could Be Back On The Big Screen

Published on

Now that the Depp/Heard trial has come to an end and Depp’s name has been officially cleared with a defamation suit win, the Pirates Of The Caribbean star may be welcomed back onto the Hollywood screen.

At least one former Disney executive says the door is open for Depp to step back into one of his most iconic roles: Captain Jack Sparrow.

“I absolutely believe post-verdict that Pirates is primed for rebooting with Johnny as Capt. Jack back on board,” the former executive told People Magazine.

“There is just too much potential box-office treasure for a beloved character deeply embedded in the Disney culture. With [producer] Jerry Bruckheimer riding high on the massive success of Tom Cruise in Top Gun: Maverick, there is a huge appetite for bringing back bankable Hollywood stars in massively popular franchises.”

“Depp earned an Oscar nomination for playing Jack Sparrow in the original 2003 film Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. The hit sequels came out in 2006, 2007, 2011, and 2017,” People Magazine reports.

The franchise has grossed over $4.5 billion worldwide.
