His latest claims read: “Disney wants [the] new Pirates movie to make fun of Jack Sparrow.”
As usual, the tipster hasn’t left any further details about what this means, but a lot of information can be gleaned from his comment.
First of all, it is important to note that Depp has not yet been officially removed from the franchise.
The Hollywood star fought a newspaper’s claims he was a “wife-beater”. These claims were backed up by his ex-wife, Amber Heard.
In the midst of the court battle, Depp was asked by Warner Brothers to step down from his Harry Potter role of Gellert Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts series. Since then, it has been speculated Depp would also be asked to leave the Disney franchise, but no official word has come yet.
Also, further rumours have suggested the next Pirates of the Caribbean film is going to be a reboot.
On her casting, Robbie explained there will be lots of “girl power” in the series. She added: “It’s too early to talk about it. I love Christina, obviously.
“I’m not a producer on Pirates, so I’ll sit back and kind of wait for the process. We’re really, really excited at the prospect of adding obviously a very key female element to that world.”
Again, news of Depp’s involvement with Robbie’s film has been scarce.
He told Collider: “The one we’re developing right now, we’re not sure quite what Johnny’s role is going to be.”
He added: “So, we’re going to have to see.”
The Pirates of the Caribbean films are available on Disney Plus now.
