The Hollywood Reporter recently interviewed Jerry Bruckheimer, the producer of many blockbuster movies such as Top Gun, Bad Boys, Black Hawk Down, etcetera.

It remains to be seen whether Hollywood will embrace Johnny Depp in the future despite allegations of domestic violence and sexual assault following the case, even though his victory in the defamation case against his ex-wife Amber Heard. Because of the case, Depp, who portrays Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, lost his acting contract. After all his personal life drama, an inside Hollywood player believes there is a slim chance that Disney will call him back to reprise his role.

In the interview with The Hollywood Reporter, he said,
“I would love to have him in the movie, He’s a friend, a terrific actor, and it’s unfortunate the personal lives creep into everything we do.”
Furthermore, Bruckheimer mentioned how it is sad how personal relationships affect one’s professional life.
New York Post reported that a ‘knowledgeable film industry member’ described this idea as a long shot. As per the report, the insider said,
“I think he will have a career, but I don’t see him being redeemed. I think big-name people in Hollywood will steer clear of him.”

Did Amber Heard Make A Smart Move On Johnny Depp Despite Losing In Defamation Trial?
This year, Johnny Depp has been in the headlines for his legal problems, not his artistic projects. It was one of the most talked about stories in 2022 when Amber Heard accused the Pirates of the Caribbean star of mistreatment and sexual abuse, but the verdict came out in her husband’s favor. After settling their defamation case trial, Depp and Heard finally broke the last string of their bitter relationship.
However, the question arises, who will actually come out on top in this situation? Amber Heard somewhat won one area of the defamation case trial, of all things, as she brilliantly characterized Johnny Depp’s career in her way of character assimilation despite losing all other aspects of the case. As a result, Depp already lost his famous role as Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean, which fans hope to see in the next installment.
Amber Heard and Depp made the final settlement in which Heard’s insurance company agreed to pay her ex-husband $1 million. However, according to his attorneys, Depp plans to donate the settlement money to several charities instead of keeping it. In an Instagram statement earlier this week, Heard said she struggled to accept the settlement but couldn’t afford another trial financially or emotionally.
