We investigated the rumors. Johnny Depp claims he has been offered a $301 million deal for the Disney Plus series. And the new “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie.

Has Johnny Depp’s $301 million Disney deal been revealed?

Johnny Depp’s $301 million Disney deal was revealed on June 7, 2022. Rumor has it that Depp was offered a hefty sum of money from Walt Disney shortly after his highly successful defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife, Amber Heard. The studio once again plays Jack Sparrow, his “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie character. Rumors spread on Reddit, TikTok, Facebook and Twitter. However, we found no evidence that Johnny Depp and Disney were negotiating a deal for any amount.

“Disney allegedly offered a $301 million deal for Johnny Depp to return as Jack Sparrow in another “pirate” picture and the Disney Plus series. The blog mentions only “reliable sources close to Disney” This article was classified as a rumor, but according to the website.

Johnny Depp has been asked about his interest in a future “Pirates of the Caribbean” project.

Johnny Depp was questioned in court in April 2022 for his interest in a future “Pirates of the Caribbean” project. I have heard attorney J. Benjamin Rottenborn say, “The truth is, Mr. Depp, nothing in this world can convince you to work again with Disney on the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ movie.” That’s correct. Mr. Rottenborn was countered by Depp.

Heard’s attorney, Elaine Bredehoft, asked Tina Newman of Walt Disney Studios. In a pre-recorded statement in court in May: “Did Disney know that Johnny Depp swore he wouldn’t take on another ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ franchise role for $300 million and a million alpaca?” “no.” Newman answered.

The next question posed by Bredehoft was, “Would Disney consider paying him over $300 million and giving him over a million alpacas to secure services for his future ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ role?” “No” was Newman’s second response.
