Johnny Depp officially dropped from 'Pirates of the Caribbean' franchise

Many would say that the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise is the swashbuckling equivalent of Michael Bay's Tranformers movies.

"I think he's had a great run", Beattie said.

Ladies and gents, today is the day you will always remember as the day, you nearly caught Captain Jack Sparrow.

The Reporter asked him about whether "Pirates" can survive without Depp. The next in the series were Dead Man's Chest, At World's End , On Stranger Tides and Dead Men Tell No Tales, which released in the years 2006, 2007, 2011 and 2017 respectively.

A franchise was born and after five films at the helm of the Black Pearl, it appears that Depp will be hanging up his hat and walking the plank from the franchise.

Whatever happened no longer matters as everyone will look forward to a new beginning under someone who supporters already love. You want to go and play and win because it means so much to him".

We reported back in October about some whisperings and implications which suggested Jack Sparrow wouldn't be appearing in the new film, but Disney film production chief Sean Bailey completely confirmed it in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter this week.

Whether or not the Disney series can find a way to have its own Bumblebee-style moment of redemption is still unclear, but the upcoming Pirates reboot is definitely serious about giving a clean slate to the franchise, as we know that Johnny Depp will not be reprising his role as Captain Jack Sparrow. "I love the movies, but part of the reason Paul and Rhett [Deadpool writers] are so interesting is that we want to give it a kick in the trousers - and that's what I've tasked them with". "And that's what I've tasked them with".

As for Depp's next roles, he's set to star in City of Lies and Waiting for the Barbarians. Removing Johnny Depp, however, is certainly a step in the right direction.

"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 insane for casting him at the time". The fact that it worked is a miracle.
