On June 27, 2022, it was reported that Disney had offered Johnny Depp an astonishing Rs 2,355 crore deal to return as the beloved Jack Sparrow in a future Pirates of the Caribbean movie. The news was first reported by The Economic Times.

Johnny Depp has been a fan favorite since he first appeared as the swashbuckling pirate in the 2003 film, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. The movie was a massive success, and Depp’s performance as Jack Sparrow earned him an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor.

Since then, Depp has reprised his role as Jack Sparrow in four sequels, with the most recent being Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales in 2017. The fifth installment of the franchise is currently in development, and Disney is reportedly eager to bring Depp back as the iconic character.

The reported deal is a testament to Depp’s enduring popularity and the success of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. The movies have grossed over $4.5 billion worldwide, making it one of the most successful film franchises of all time.

It remains to be seen if Depp will accept Disney’s offer, but if he does, it will be one of the biggest deals in Hollywood history.
