Producer of Pirates of the Caribbean Explains Why He Wants Johnny Depp to Return to the Franchise!


When someone mentions Pirates of the Caribbean, it is difficult not to immediately think of Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow strutting through a self-created storm of chaos.

People have difficulty imagining the franchise continuing without its charismatic protagonist. Jerry Bruckheimer, a producer, also believes that Depp must be a part of the franchise’s future.

In a recent interview with Media, Bruckheimer elaborated on why he believes Depp should return to the franchise. He said:

He’s just so good at what he does and actors recover from things like this. He’s a good individual and he’s a caring individual. He’s somebody that you can rely on and he’s just terrific. I think Johnny is an utter friend and an amazing artist and, again, you go through things in life you wish you hadn’t, but he’s still a talented artist.

Currently, it is uncertain what will transpire with the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. Since Depp’s legal issues with Amber Heard precluded his participation in Pirates 6, the franchise appeared to be recruiting Margot Robbie as its new leader in a reboot of the swashbuckling moneymaker.

Recent updates indicate that there are multiple Pirates of the Caribbean films in development, but no one seems to know which one will be produced.

Who Will Be Cast in the Upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean Film?

Currently, two distinct future iterations of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise are being considered. As Bruckheimer explained previously:

We have a very good script. We developed two of them — the one with Margot Robbie and one with a younger cast. The Margot Robbie one needs a little more work. The younger cast one is close. Hopefully, we’ll get both of them. It’s alive for me. It’s alive for Disney. I’m sure she was disappointed it didn’t go first — or maybe not because she’s very busy, so it might be a blessing to push this a bit. We believe we’ll get it made. It’s a very strong story.

It is unknown where this leaves Johnny Depp’s potential return, but it appears that there are other versions of the character in development that do not involve Jack Sparrow.

However, Bruckheimer has always maintained that Depp’s place in the franchise’s legacy is unquestionable.

There are without a doubt many Depp fans who would love to see him return to the franchise, but the question of whether or not the actor needs the franchise is an entirely separate debate.

Depp has not yet indicated that he wants to reprise his role as Jack Sparrow, and regardless of how much fans would love to see him walk the plank once more, it will be the actor’s desire to reprise the role that will determine whether it happens or not.
