After the announcement, rumors started circulating that Disney is working on a new film under the franchise with the Jack Sparrow actor Johnny Depp. While fans were excited about the return of Jack Sparrow, the update turned out to be a rumor only.

Previously talking to The Sunday Times, Bruckheimer claimed that the studio is working on two Pirates of the Caribbean projects, one with Margot Robbie and one without her. He also talked about Johnny Depp’s return saying, “Not at this point. The future is yet to be decided.”

Last month Margot Robbie revealed that the studio was developing a female-led for a while. The Suicide Squad star revealed that the film was canceled saying, “But I guess they don’t want to do it.

With the cancelation of the film and the continuous backlash due to Johnny Depp’s exit, it was assumed that Disney is not planning the next film for the franchise.

Would Johnny Depp Finally Make His Comeback as Jack Sparrow?

While Jerry Bruckheimer has not said anything about the return of Johnny Depp in the upcoming film, there could be a possibility that the studio might have pursued the actor for his return.

For the past few weeks, there have been multiple rumors about The Rum Diary star’s return to the franchise. Although the claim was denied, with Bruckheimer’s latest update, it could be possible that Disney might plan to bring Jack Sparrow back.

Fans of the franchise have also made it clear that they are not willing to see a film without Depp as Jack Sparrow in the film. Considering the fan demand, the studio would have approached the Sleepy Hollow star. It would be good news for the fans, but there is no recent update on Depp’s return to the franchise.

Pirates of the Caribbean is available to stream on Disney+.
