After 15 years of playing the iconic Captain Jack Sparrow, the role which earned Depp an Oscar nomination (yes, it really happened) in 2004, Johnny Depp is reportedly OUT as Sparrow.
Disney execs are planning another movie in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. Call it a sequel or a reboot, whatever. The scriptwriter from the first movie is apparently privy to the direction of the new sixth movie. He confirms that Disney is going in a different direction.
Is it because Depp's personal life is a trainwreck with allegations of domestic abuse against Amber Heard, his heavy drinking, and lavish lifestyle? Who knows.
