Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Disney Replaces Johnny Depp with Young, New Face? Reshoot Scenes?
Pirates of the Caribbean 5 may or may not have Johnny Depp reprising Captain Jack Sparrow. Rumors suggest that Disney is not happy with Depp’s participation in the film. Moreover, the production team believes that the 54-year-old actor has lost his charm and is incapable of attracting the audience.
Pirates of the Caribbean 5 will release in May 2017. The shooting is almost half-done. But even now, Disney is not sure whether it wants to continue with Depp as Sparrow. Latest rumors indicate that the production house has decided to cut down the legendary actor’s role. A fresh new face will reshoot scenes of Johnny Depp.
Will Henry Turner Take Over Jack Sparrow’s Role?
Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Dead Men Tell No Tales will be the last movie of the franchise for Johnny Depp. According to GameNGuide, Disney is reshooting some scenes of the Sleepy Hollow actor to focus on other characters in the movie. In the past few years, the status of Depp as a super hit star has diminished.
The actor has been unable to revive his sagging career despite several attempts. Moreover, the domestic violence allegations against him by his ex-wife Amber Heard also harmed his image in the society. Considering all these things, Disney is not interested in letting Johnny Depp lead Pirates of the Caribbean 5.
The production house is more interested in diverting the focus to a younger face who can continue in the later movies from the franchise.
Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 – Last Movie Of Depp?
Earlier reports indicated the movie would revolve around Henry Turner. He is the son of Will Turner, a character played by Orlando Bloom. Hence, Johnny Depp will have little to do in the upcoming movie. Moreover, the trailer also does not show the pirates actor. Rather it is the main villain Captain Salazar and Henry Turner who make their presence felt in it.
It means that the buzz about Henry Turner taking the lead in the fifth installment of the franchise. Does this mean that Pirates of the Caribbean 5 is the last pirates’ movie of Johnny Depp? It is quite possible, as Disney will now want a younger face to take the franchise further.
