Johnny Depp is the undisputed protagonist of the Disney movie saga’ Pirates of the Caribbean‘, being one of the main attractions of it since its inception. However, the controversy in which he was involved after the accusations of his ex-wife Amber Heard, led the board to make the decision not to include him among the cast of the next project with his mythical character of Jack Sparrow.
Meanwhile, Disney, which had already worked on the different ideas that could make up the fifth and sixth films in the saga when ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides ‘ came out in 2011, began to show interest in some actresses who could star in this sixth Deliver and take a plot twist.
The actresses that the company has been opting for, at least in principle, were Karen Gillan, from ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’, Emma Watson, and Zac Efron was even shuffled into a young Jack Sparrow version, until they came up with the final idea of hiring Margot Robbie alongside the’ Birds of Prey ‘ screenwriter they both worked on.
There has also been talk of the possibility that Orlando Bloom will play Will Turner again, after he was seen in his role as the new guardian of the seas in the Flying Dutchman.
The choice of scriptwriters who would work on the film has also changed over time, with Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (‘ Deadpool ‘) in mind at first , then moving on to Craig Mazin (‘ Chernobyl ‘) and Ted. Elliott , who worked on ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ from 1 to 4 . But it seems that they have finally wanted to give it another approach and have added Christina Hodson (‘Birds of prey’).
However, it is difficult to know for sure if Depp will finally have a role in this installment or if he will have it at all, since the script has not yet been written and it is not known what the final result will be. What did leak from the film is that the intention they have regarding it is that it has no continuity with the previous ones, but without a definitive script on the table, anything can happen.
And on the other hand there is the ‘teaser’ at the end of the previous movie ‘ Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead men tell no tales ‘, in which Davy Jones ( Bill Nighy ) appeared in Will and Elizabeth’s room (Keira Knightley) to disappear leaving a trace that made you think that this character would once again be the villain of the next movie.
Taking all this into account and knowing in advance what it costs them to produce these films, we can expect their premiere to arrive in approximately 2023 and we will have to continue waiting for new news to confirm their plot, the role of Johnny and the rest. cast.
