Pirates Of The Caribbean Producer Addresses Possible Johnny Depp Return

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer comments on whether fans can expect to see Johnny Depp’s Jack Sparrow return in Pirates of the Caribbean 6. First introduced to the franchise back in 2003, Depp’s swindling pirate has been a mainstay of every installment in the franchise thus far. After the poor reception to Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales in 2017 and Depp’s subsequent legal troubles with ex-wife Amber Heard, the franchise was essentially put on ice. Although talk of a sixth film in the franchise has persisted for years, the project has yet to materialize, and Depp has previously expressed that he’s not interested in returning.

Not long after the recent announcement that Margot Robbie’s Pirates of the Caribbean movie has been put on the back burner, Bruckheimer now addresses whether Depp could return as Sparrow in the next installment. In a recent interview with AP Entertainment, Bruckheimer is careful not to give too much away but does tease that progress is being made on the project behind the scenes. Check out Bruckheimer’s full comment below when asked if Depp’s return is in the cards:

“We’re still working on it. Nothing’s definitive yet, but we continue to take little baby steps getting towards a screenplay.”

How Pirates Of The Caribbean 6 Should Incorporate Jack Sparrow

One of the biggest failings of both Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is arguably that the movies rely on Depp’s character too much. Part of the reason why all three films in the original trilogy, particularly the first two, are so beloved, is because Sparrow’s storyline intersects with that of Elizabeth Swann (Keira Knightley) and Will Turner (Orlando Bloom). Elizabeth and Will are more human and relatable characters and their love story is really the heart of the original trilogy, providing the basis for the movies’ most emotional and impactful scenes. Sparrow is a great source of comic relief and is charismatic in his own way, but he works best when placed opposite characters who are more grounded.

In order for Pirates of the Caribbean 6 to regain some of the franchise’s original magic, Sparrow needs to not be the only one to carry the story. Elizabeth and Will returned in the most recent installment but were secondary characters without much to do. Pirates of the Caribbean 6 should either work to incorporate both of these original characters more prominently into the story or not include them at all in order to make room for new characters. Although the two previous films attempted to introduce some fresh faces for audiences to root for, the new characters ultimately ended up not being as compelling as Will and Elizabeth.

It remains to be seen how Pirates of the Caribbean 6 will come together, but many fans of the franchise would evidently be thrilled to see Depp return. It’s also possible, of course, that Depp won’t be interested in coming back at all, meaning the film would need to find a way to push forward without Sparrow, which would be no easy task. With Bruckheimer’s comment affirming that Pirates of the Caribbean 6 is still in the very early stages of development with a script not even written yet, it will likely be a long while before fans find out about Depp’s return.

‘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.
