Johnny Depp, 59, has already starred in five films in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
We remember that the actor, who has just emerged victorious from a highly publicized lawsuit against his ex Amber Heard, was unceremoniously ejected from the franchise in 2018 by Disney, at the dawn of the sixth installment, thus losing his salary. of US$22.5 million. He was at the time targeted by allegations of abuse by Amber Heard. The latter had claimed to have been the victim of domestic violence on the part of Johnny Depp in an opinion piece she wrote that year.
On June 1, a judge sentenced Amber Heard to pay her former lover $10.35 million in a defamation lawsuit.
