Johnny Depp’s Pirates Of The Caribbean Return Just Got More Likely

Margot Robbie’s Pirates of the Caribbean project is officially dead, meaning there is a lot less standing in the way of a version of Pirates of the Caribbean 6 starring Johnny Depp’s Jack Sparrow. Originally announced in June 2020, Margot Robbie’s Pirates of the Caribbean spinoff has been in limbo for over two years. However, the actor recently confirmed that the project has been canceled due to a lack of interest from Disney (via Screen Rant).

Robbie’s movie is officially not happening and the actor’s explanation for this is revealing. Robbie said her project was “a different kind of story,” which suggests Disney doesn’t want to stray too far from the franchise formula. This brings back the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise’s Jack Sparrow problem, with the series having no anchor without Johnny Depp’s antihero, but no way of bringing back Depp after his highly publicized exit. However, Depp’s return now looks more likely than ever before since Robbie’s exit removes a potential barrier to the production of a Depp-led Pirates of the Caribbean 6.

What’s Been Said About Johnny Depp’s POTC Return


Producer Jerry Bruckheimer said in May 2022 that there were 2 Pirates of the Caribbean projects in the works, the Robbie spinoff, and an unrelated sixth movie. He said Depp was not involved but “the future is yet to be decided.” An anonymous Disney executive was more forthcoming in June, saying “I absolutely believe post-verdict that Pirates is primed for rebooting with Johnny as Capt. Jack back on board.” If Disney kept the Robbie-led reboot in production, the studio would be less likely to need Depp’s star power to drive the franchise, but now that Robbie’s Pirates of the Caribbean spinoff isn’t happening, it looks more likely that Jack Sparrow could come back.

Depp’s Pirates Of The Caribbean Return Is Improbable, But Not Impossible

Between the actor’s highly public legal battle with Amber Heard and his accompanying career downswing, the odds of Depp’s return as Jack Sparrow have not looked promising in recent years. However, the news that Robbie’s Pirates of the Caribbean project is dead in the water makes the prospect far more viable. The Pirates of the Caribbean series doesn’t have an extended universe, any television spinoffs, or any other related media successes that imply the franchise can exist without Depp’s Jack Sparrow. In the last few years, the most successful Pirates of the Caribbean project has been a video game crossover with Sea of Thieves which relied heavily on Jack Sparrow’s starring role.

The fact that Pirates of the Caribbean 6 will bring back the original movie’s screenwriter implies the creators have no other ideas for a new installment beyond returning to safe franchise formula. Not only that, but Disney was also willing to drop an A-list star’s reboot by canceling the Robbie spinoff, meaning the studio isn’t invested in a new or different take on the material. There are also million-strong petitions looking for Depp’s return and, judging by the poorly-received but profitable later sequels, the studio is less concerned with the quality of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies than the presence of their marketable star, making a Depp-led Pirates of the Caribbean 6 more likely than ever.

‘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.
