This week Johnny Depp has spoken of his time working on Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean franchise throughout his $50 million defamation trial, wherein he’s suing his ex-wife Amber Heard, who’s counter-suing him. The actress’ legal professional Ben Rottenborn requested the Hollywood star about Pirates of the Caribbean 6 and if he’d return as Jack Sparrow for an enormous sum. However, the Jack Sparrow star was adamant he wouldn’t.
At Fairfax County Courthouse in Virginia, Rottenborn requested this week: “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’ film? Correct?”
Depp merely replied: “That is true, Mr Rottenborn.”
The 58-year-old additionally admitted that he’s by no means seen Pirates of the Caribbean, saying: “I didn’t see it. But I believe that the film did pretty well, apparently.” The Curse of the Black Pearl made a whopping $654.3 million worldwide on a funds of $140 million. Two of the 4 sequels would go on to make over $1 billion every.
Being requested about probably returning for Pirates of the Caribbean 6 got here up when Depp was questioned about his career and the way his life modified after the success of the first Jack Sparrow film again in 2003.
The star stated: “Cartoon characters can get away with things we can’t. Captain Jack Sparrow can do things that I could never do. He could say things that I could never say. So it was for me, a way to stretch the parameters of a character and take a risk in doing that. But if it panned out, and I felt I was on a pretty good mission, I thought that it might be a character who would be accepted by five-year-olds and 45-year-olds, 65-year-olds and 85-year-olds in the same way that Bugs Bunny is.”
Depp added: “They wanted to keep going [after the success of the first film], making more and I was fine to do that. It’s not like you become that person, but if you know that character to the degree that I did – because he was not what the writers wrote, so they really weren’t able to write for him… Once you know the character better than the writers, that’s when you have to be true to the character and add your words.”
The trial continues.
