Johnny Depp is one of Hollywood's biggest stars, but he is also one of the most controversial. For over two years, we have watched all the drama in his life. The actor has been in the news a lot over the last two years because he was fighting with his ex-wife, Amber Heard.
He is now getting ready to return to the big screen. He has won some things, but he has also lost a lot, including the Pirates of the Caribbean series. But it looks like it will be Dwayne Johnson's gain in the end.
For those who don't know, Johnny Depp has spent more time in court than on sets over the past few years. He won the defamation case he had against Amber and showed that she was wrong.
Before that, he was fighting a Libel case against a British tabloid that said he beat his wife. When he lost that trial, he was taken out of the Fantastic Beasts movies and Pirates without any fanfare.
Since then, fans have been asking Disney to let their favorite actor play Jack Sparrow again. There were rumors that the studio had already cut ties with Johnny Depp and was making plans for the future of Pirates of the Caribbean without him.
But it looks like the studio might have found a big star like Dwayne Johnson to take his place. Find out more about it by reading on. You did hear that correctly! Without Johnny Depp, the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, which has made over $1 billion, is moving forward.
Earlier, it was said that this time there will be a female lead, and Margot Robbie was brought on board, but nothing else has been said since then. Now, a viral report from Fan Fest says that the studio has bigger plans for their franchise, and one of them is to hire Dwayne Johnson to take Depp's place.
No one knows for sure if Dwayne Johnson has been asked or if he will play Jack Sparrow or a completely new lead. Just wait and see. The French historical drama Jeanne du Barry, which is set to come out this year, will mark Johnny Depp's return to the big screen.
