Disney by no means brazenly fired Johnny Depp in his function as Captain Jack Sparrow, not like, say, James Gunn being fired from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 after previous tweets. Disney reinstated Gunn after a number of months of fan outcry, however any Pirates determination might also be based mostly in economics. Depp is an costly star and the newest movie wasn’t as effectively obtained because the studio hoped. They might lower your expenses by going with a reboot, though that might be of venture too.
