“I think we’ll have a great screenplay”: Pirates of the Caribbean Producer Teases He Wants Johnny Depp Back Amidst Rumors of $750M Dwayne Johnson Eyeing to Replace Him After Black Adam Failure

Captain Jack Sparrow might just be on the verge of making his grand comeback after 6 years.
The last film in the series, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales was released back in 2017, grossing about $794 million in the global circuit. But there’s only been radio silence on the franchise’s end ever since then with no concrete updates on a sixth film to hold onto.

Luckily for fans, the producer of the fantasy swashbuckler film series has given a fresh update on the whereabouts of a new addition. And it’s safe to say that active development is taking place concerning Pirates of the Caribbean 6. The question of the hour though, is, will Johnny Depp return to the franchise or will another actor replace him in Pirates of the Caribbean’s future projects?

Jerry Bruckheimer Teases Fans With A New Pirates of the Caribbean Update 
On the evening of the 95th Academy Awards, American film and television producer Jerry Bruckheimer, who welcomed his first Oscar nomination for Top Gun: Maverick, was asked about the future of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. And his reassurance about the sixth film in the series seems to be promising enough.

While Bruckheimer, 79, didn’t reveal much, he did remark how the studio already has a “great” script in the works so at least that’s something.

“We’re all working on it. We’ll see how it comes out. But we’re very excited, I think we’re going to have a great screenplay, and we’re getting close.” 
Upon being asked if there was any hope for Johnny Depp to return to the franchise, the Top Gun producer admitted that he would certainly welcome him with open arms if he were to come back.
“We’ll see. I would love it. I would love to have him in the movie, that’s all I could tell you.” 
Looks like the ball is in Depp’s court.

Will Johnny Depp Return for Pirates of the Caribbean 6?
Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise consists of five adventure/ action films bordering on fantasy and supernatural elements. But the main highlight of all the movies is undoubtedly the protagonist, Jack Sparrow, a notorious and mostly inebriated pirate with a twisted moral compass who embarks on wild journeys and has countless enemies. And by adding his own personal touch of humor and wit to the character, Depp represents the role almost as if it’s a second skin.

The award-winning actor has portrayed the role on the screen with laudable consistency and genuine dedication toward the same. But back in 2018, when Depp’s ex-wife Amber Heard indirectly accused him of domestic violence and abuse through an op-ed, Disney dropped the actor from the $4.5 billion franchise due to all the legal allegations swirling around him.
On top of that, there have also been new rumors sparking up about how former professional wrestler and Black Adam star Dwayne Johnson has apparently been keeping an eye out for Captain Jack Sparrow’s role in Depp’s absence. However, neither Disney nor The Rock has confirmed or denied any of the said claims.
Hopefully, fans will get to see their beloved Depp as Jack Sparrow on the screens soon.

Pirates of the Caribbean can be streamed on Disney+.

‘I am officially off the market’: When Margot Robbie revealed she made the ‘conscious’ decision of not dating actors

Margot Robbie revealed her decision to not date actors because of the media scrutiny that came with a public relationship of two high-profile actors
Back in 2015, A-lister Margot Robbie made a declaration that she would not be dating any actors. The actress may have alluded to her fiance Tom Ackerley, who she married the following year in 2016. In an exclusive interview with Marie Claire, she revealed that being in a relationship as an actor herself came with its own set of challenges. She believed that dating someone who was popular would add on to the media scrutiny.

Margot Robbie opened up on why she made a conscious decision to not date actorsTalking to Marie Claire, she claimed, “I am officially off the market.” She then shared the reasoning behind her decision and added, “I made a conscious decision not to date actors.” She continued to explain, “But not because I hate actors. That’s a nasty generalization to make, and that’s not the case. People take such an interest in your love life when you have a profile, it puts a lot of stress on a relationship.”
The Barbie actress continued, “So two people with profiles, I figure it’s just double the amount of scrutiny, and I’d like to avoid that at all costs.” This came after reports of her locking lips with Tarzan co-star Alexander Skarsgard started making rounds. It was reported that she was caught kissing the actor during the Sundance Film Festival.

Margot Robbie revealed she opted for a minimal lifestyle even after becoming an actorIn the interview, Robbie also opened up about how she was adapting to fame. She shared, “I have a normal 24-year-old life. If I were a waitress, I’d probably have the exact same lifestyle. I’d go to the same clubs I go to already, live in the same house with the same housemates, hang out with the same people.”
However, Margot Robbie tied the knot with Tom Ackerley who is an English producer and actor. The duo met on the sets of 2013 movie Suite Francaise where Tom was working as an assistant director. Post marriage, both of them launched their production company LuckyChap Entertainment.

‘Rocky’ Was Quite Different In His Original Screenplay, Sylvester Stallone Claims

Sylvester Stallone took his friend’s advice on a rewrite of the original screenplay to Rocky. A few tweaks later, he was on his way to major success.
In the new Netflix documentary Sly, Stallone discussed how he initially conceived of the project, which had a much harder edge. In the early version, Rocky was depicted as a “thuggish” character, inspired by Martin Scorsese’s crime drama, Mean Streets.

But Stallone’s perspective changed when a friend read the script and thought the boxer was too cruel for audiences to actually care about him.
Stallone recalled her crying.

“She goes, ‘I hate Rocky. I hate him. He’s cruel. He hits people. He beats them up.’”
Stallone took it to heart, and asked what he could do to soften the character.

“I said, ‘what if you stop short of it?’ Like, maybe he almost did. He could have, that’s his job, but he doesn’t?’ ‘That’d be nice,’” he added. “I said, ‘What if he had a girlfriend or something?’ ‘Yeah, that’s nice.’ So I go back, start writing that: ‘Girlfriend. Nice.’”
$117 million in box office later, a franchise was born.

Stallone also revealed that actor Dolph Lundgren sent him to the hospital during one fight scene in Rocky IV.
“Dolph Lundgren… he pulverized me,” Stallone says in the documentary. “Later that night, my heart started to swell—which happens when the heart hits the chest—and then my blood pressure went up to 260, and they thought I was going to be talking to angels. Next thing I know, I’m in intensive care, where I’m surrounded by nuns, and I thought, ‘OK, that’s curtains.’”
Stallone was in the hospital for nine days following the incident, praying for “one more round.”
“For the first minute of the fight, it is going to be a free-for-all,” Stallone told Lundgren. The Swedish actor joked in a separate interview that all he did was “obey orders,” explaining, “[Stallone] was the boss. I did what he told me.”
Doctors allegedly told Stallone that he received a blow to the ribs that made his heart rattle around in his ribcage, a condition typically seen in head-on collisions. “I did hit a bus, of sorts,” Stallone joked.
