The studio wants nothing to do with Johnny Depp. Faced with the possibility of the actor making a cameo, Disney completely refused.
After Johnny Depp lost his lawsuit over the defamation lawsuit he filed against the British newspaper The Sun, which called him a “wife-beater,” it seems Disney wants nothing to do with him. According to the information provided by The Hollywood Reporter, Mickey Mouse’s house would have blocked the actor’s possible return to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
Since the legal battle between Johnny Depp and his ex-wife Amber Heard began, the names of both interpreters were the center of all the news. Recall that the actress accused the 57-year-old actor of having exercised violence against her. After the most recent trial that the actor faced against the newspaper The Sun, the judge in charge of taking him ruled that there was sufficient evidence for the media to refer to Johnny Depp as a “woman hitter.”
From that denouement, his name and his presence were not well received in Hollywood and no studio wants to work with him. The evidence presented during the trial in the United Kingdom revealed a series of violent behavior on the part of Johnny Depp, so immediately after its resolution, Warner Bros. decided to ask him to step aside from Fantastic Beasts 3.
Disney said no … again
Now according to the new report by The Hollywood Reporter, Disney also would have chosen to eliminate any relationship with Johnny Depp. He even refused to consider the idea of the actor appearing in a cameo in the upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean movie.
The new information indicates that producer Jerry Bruckheimer, who has been one of the actor’s main advocates, had a desire to include him in the next Pirates of the Caribbean film, even if it was only in a cameo to hand over the reins of the franchise to Margot Robbie. . However, Disney declined to consider the idea due to the reputational risk it would pose.
