Maybe, Johnny Depp will focus on his acting chops instead of mocking and threatening President Trump.
Johnny Depp has been axed from the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise.
The 55-year-old has played Jack Sparrow in the films for the past 15 years, but he will reportedly no longer be part of the films as Disney Studios plan a reboot.
“And kids all over the world love him as that character so I think it’s been great for him, it’s been great for us, so I’m just very, very happy about it.”
He added: “I think Jack Sparrow will be his legacy. It’s the only character he’s played five times, it’s the character he dresses up in to visit children in hospitals, it’s what he’ll be remembered for.
“Before Jack Sparrow came along, [Depp] was considered this kind of quirky, independent actor that made these really cool little Tim Burton films but he was by no means a movie star and a lot of people thought we were crazy for casting him at the time.
“Because he wasn’t a proven commodity; you know, a big movie star. And we were making a big movie and we were putting this quirky, independent actor in the middle of it and people thought we were crazy. The fact that it worked is a miracle.
“They were certainly nervous watching the rushes everyday but when it all came together, something just clicked and it was magic and connected with audiences. I’m proud to be a part of it.”
Yesterday, it was revealed that Disney has reportedly met with Deadpool‘s writing duo Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick to pen the script for a reboot and are in “early talks” following their success with the superhero franchise.
And that is not the end of the bad news Depp. According to sources, his latest movie is doing terrible as well in theatres.
From The Daily Caller:
“London Fields” absolutely tanked at the box office.
The plot of the film, according to IMDB, is, “Clairvoyant femme fatale Nicola Six has been living with a dark premonition of her impending death by murder. She begins a tangled love affair with three uniquely different men: one of whom she knows will be her murderer.”
The Hollywood Reporter reported the following:
The long-delayed dystopian mystery — which features an uncredited cameo by Johnny Depp, Heard’s ex-husband — took in an estimated $160,000 from 613 theaters. That’s the second worst opening for a wide release behind 2008’s Proud American ($96,076), per Box Office Mojo, whose database begins in 1980. (Box Office Mojo defines a wide opening as any movie playing in 600 or more theaters.)
At $160,000, London Fields’ per-screen average is a dismal $261, the lowest ever for a film rolling out in that number of locations, and among one of the lowest averages ever for a wide debut.
Things aren’t exactly going well for Johnny.
