‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ reboot will probably not include Johnny Depp

Captain Jack Sparrow may have sailed away for good.

Since the early 2000s, Disney could be counted on to wheel out another Pirates of the Caribbean movie every few years. Beginning with 2003’s Curse of the Black Pearl, there have been five Pirates films. The movies have ranged from wildly entertaining to very forgettable.

The franchise has boasted a impressive variety of actors over the course of its lifespan. Academy Award winners Geoffrey Rush and Javier Bardem, Academy Award nominee Keira Knightley, Emmy Award nominee Penelope Cruz, and big name stars like Orlando Bloom have all appeared in the films. By far, the most familiar character to come from the series is Captain Jack Sparrow, played by Johnny Depp.

While the films have been met with increasing apathy with each release, they are still money making blockbusters. It came as little surprise when it was reported that a sixth film would be made.

'Pirates of the Caribbean' reboot will probably not include Johnny Depp

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Sean Bailey of Walt Disney Studios all but confirmed Depp would not be returning to the Pirates franchise. This may come as a surprise to some since Depp’s performance in Curse of the Black Pearl did earn him an Oscar nomination. However, the Johnny Depp of today is a lot less family friendly than he once seemed.

No official announcements have been made regarding the film.
