Johnny Depp Out of Pirates?
To a whole lot of women’s dismay, Johnny Depp may not appear in the next Pirates of the Caribbean film.
The veteran actor said that following the departure of Disney chief executive Dick Cook last Friday, he will have to wait to see the script for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides before he will commit to the movie.
Referring to the film he said, “There’s a fissure, a crack in my enthusiasm at the moment.”
Johnny, who has played the lead role of Captain Jack Sparrow in the previous three installments of the pirate adventure trilogy, said that he was “shocked and very sad” about the news when Dick phoned to tell him he was leaving.
“He is the utmost gentleman, so he made the call himself. He didn’t give me a reason. I didn’t see this coming. There was no reason to see this coming. He’s instantly trustworthy. And you generally don’t meet people at the studios you trust. He’s a rare beast.”
Johnny also said Dick was the person who convinced him to sign on for Pirates of the Caribbean in the first place.
