Pirates of the Caribbean is one of the most famous Disney projects. All the pirates of the Caribbean movies have done well at the box office.
All the Pirates of the Caribbean movies have grossed 4.5 billion dollars worldwide. It makes a lot of sense why Disney loves this particular project. Not because it brings a lot of money to Disney but people love this concept.
Why Disney is going for Pirates of the Caribbean Remake?
Johnny Depp has played the role of Jack sparrow for 15 years. It is hard to imagine the movie without Johnny Depp. it was Depp’s strange humor that made the movie special in the first place.
Disney never liked Johnny Depp’s attitude and acting and they wanted to remove him from the first film. But, it seems like they got impressed by his acting skills in the end.
There are rumors that indicate that Depp left the project on his own. But, in his lawsuit with Amber, it was revealed that Disney kicked him out from the fifth installment of the movie. They minimized his screen time in the fifth installment and that was painful for Johnny Depp.
Stuart Beattie who is the screenwriter of the movies said this in his interview with DailyMail TV when they asked him about Depp’s exist.
“I think he’s had a great run,” he said. “Obviously, he’s made that character his own, and it’s become the thing that he’s most famous for now.
“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.”
No Johnny Depp in the upcoming movie
So after all the discussion regarding Johnny Depp’s appearance in the recent movies, it is clear that he might not be a big part of the project.
Walt Disney motion pictures production head, Sean Bailey had to say this about the upcoming reboot of the movie;
We want to bring in new energy and vitality. I love the Pirates movies, but part of the reason Paul and Rhett are so interesting is that we want to give it a kick in the pants. And that’s what I’ve tasked them with.”
However, it seems like Johnny Depp might do a cameo in the movie similar to his cameo in 21 jump street to give final tribute to his character.
Disney wants to cast Margot Robbie
Margot Robbie has earned her spot in Hollywood. She became famous from the wolf of wall street. Robbie also appeared in the recent movie of Quentin Tarantino and is a desirable actress in Hollywood right now.
Even though her latest project birds of Prey was not a big hit at the box office. People still appreciated her performance. There are other actors as well who are being considered to play in the new Pirates of the Caribbean so nothing is completely official right now.
The budget for the upcoming movie considered to be 100 million dollars. It is going to be a big production movie.
Release date of Pirates of the Caribbean Remake
Pirates of the Caribbean Remake is expected to release in 2023 or might take some time as it is too early to say anything about it now considering the condition.
