Johnny Depp has had a very difficult couple of weeks. He was defending his ex-wife Amber Heard in a defamation lawsuit.
The actor has been working to revive his career after winning the $50 million slander case. A new report claims that Disney has apologized to the actor and extended an offer of Rs 2,535 crores for him to reprise his role as Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean.
Five distinct episodes of the well-known film series featured Johnny as Jack Sparrow.
The $50 million defamation lawsuit Johnny Depp brought against his ex-wife Amber Heard has been successful.
The trial, which lasted six weeks, was held in Fairfax, Virginia. In an opinion piece that was published in the Washington Post in 2018 and claimed to have survived domestic abuse, the actor filed a defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife.
As a result, Johnny Depp’s career suffered significantly as he ceased landing movie parts. He was turned down by films like Fantastic Beasts 3 and Pirates of the Caribbean. Fans have urged Disney to apologize to the actor since Johnny won the $50 million defamation case.
I know corporate sent him a gift basket with a really sincere letter, but I’m not sure how it was received, according to a source connected to the newspaper poptopic.com.au. I can tell you that the studio is highly hopeful that Johnny would accept their apology and reprise his legendary role because they have already written the first draft of a Jack Sparrow movie.
However, neither the actor nor his crew have made an official statement confirming the same. In reality, the article seems dubious because the sum provided by Disney (Rs 2,535 crores) is about equivalent to what Johnny Depp stated during the defamation trial.
For those who are unaware, Johnny had previously stated that he would not reprise his role as Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean even if he were offered a whopping $301 million.
