Deadlines spoke recently with Jerry Bruckheimer of the future of some of his successful franchises such as Bad Boys And Pirates of the Caribbean.
When asked if he would like Depp to return as Captain Jack Sparrow for future Disney films, Bruckheimer gave a rather long and convoluted answer, but, in short, the super-producer would definitely anxious to see Depp back in action as the iconic character:
He’s so good at what he does, and actors bounce back from things like this. He’s a good guy and he’s a thoughtful guy. He’s someone you can count on and he’s just amazing. I think Johnny is an absolute friend and an amazing artist and, again, you go through things in life that you wish you hadn’t, but he’s still a talented artist.
Bruckheimer’s words come curiously a few days after Orlando Bloom’s declarations, who expressed his desire to play Will Turner again in a new film in the saga.
Currently Bruckheimer is developing the sixth chapter of the saga Pirates of the Caribbeanalthough little is known about the project. Ted Elliottwho wrote the screenplays for the first four films, was signed on together with the creator of Chernobyl Craig Mazin. Plot and cast details are under wraps, but the Sun recently revealed that Disney would strike a resounding deal for the return of Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow.
Bruckheimer is also developing one spin-off of Pirates of the Caribbean with Margot Robbie as the protagonist, a film which, however, has now taken a back seat.
