‘Pirates Of The Caribbean 5:’ Jim Carrey May Replace Johnny Depp, Zoe Saldana In A Female Lead Role

The famous actor Johnny Depp is said to have been seen for the last time in “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.” He was rarely seen on the shooting floor in Australia. If he exits, then who is going to take the role of Captain Jack Sparrow? Read below to get a scoop of it.

Depp’s recent marriage with Amber Heard is reportedly having lot of problems and this is one of the reasons why he is rarely seen shooting for the fifth installation of “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, although he has battled a recent injury. Oppositely, Heard’s dog smuggling case is another reason for slowing down the production. The movie was supposed to be released in the summer of 2015.


Earlier the 52-year old Depp was on the edge of losing his life while shooting for the movie “The Lone Ranger.” He was riding a horse when unexpectedly the saddle turned loose and he was thrown from the reigns and fiercely dragged by the horse for 25 yards.

According to New York Daily News, Depp “does not want to be there” and his mood “is not doing much” for the movie “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.” The production team has reportedly blamed Depp and his wife Heard for making drama that has compelled Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg to postpone the film’s release to July 7, 2017.

“People are saying that he is checked out. He literally will come on set momentarily, deliver his lines and then leave. Some people are saying that he’s barely phoning it in,” the website reported.

Hiring a new actor for his place will be a big problem for Disney Studios as something new has to be figured out. According to Youth Health, Jim Carrey was one of the actors Disney proposed before the casting of Depp, and once Depp gives up, Carrey could be called in for the role.

A rumor also broke out that “Pirates of the Caribbean 5” could feature a female lead and Zoe Saldana possibly could play the role as she has inscribed her superior performance in Hollywood for the movies “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “Colombiana.”

According to Top Ten Real Estate Deals.com, Johnny Depp is selling his $25 million private estate (an entire village) in the French Riviera.
