Johnny Depp has reportedly been dropped from the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
Reports have it that the Walt Disney Pictures title will be getting a reboot as stated by scriptwriter Stuart Beattie. Reboots usually come with new casts and a fresh storyline and it’s looking like Depp will be out of the picture for the next installment.
Depp has had some bad publicity as of recent — his split with Amber Heard, financial issues and alcohol problems were all pretty high profile the past few years.
To top of it off, Dead Men Tell No Tales, the last film from the Pirates franchise performed quite poorly at the box office despite grossing over $794 million USD globally. The studio has also claimed that Depp was difficult to work with in the last film, arriving late to sets and delaying production.
