It’s been a packed week of casting news for Robbie. On Monday it was revealed that she was in talks to take over the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.

Jerry Bruckheimer revealed in an interview with The Sunday Times that Robbie was still in talks to launch his own film in the series, while another script is in the works to reboot the main series.

The Hollywood Reporter wrote in October 2019 that it was unclear if Johnny Depp, who starred in the first five films, would be back, but Bruckheimer poured cold water on the idea of ​​him returning anytime soon.

Asked if Depp would be back, he told The Times, ‘Not at this point,’ though he added, ‘The future is yet to be decided.’

The Edward Scissorhands star is currently involved in a vicious court battle after he sued his ex-wife Amber Heard for defamation.

During his trial, Depp agreed that even if Disney offered him all the money ‘on this earth,’ he would not reprise the role.

Heard’s lawyer Ben Rottenborn said in court: ‘The fact is, Mr. Depp, if Disney came to you with $300 million and a million alpacas, nothing on this earth would get you to go back and work with Disney on a Pirates Of The Caribbean Movie? right?’

And Depp agreed: ‘That is true, Mr Rottenborn.’

The 58-year-old actor explained how ‘there was a deep and distinct sense of feeling betrayed by the people that I’ve worked hard for. People that I delivered a character to that they initially despised, but I stuck to my guns with the character and it seemed to work.’
