Johnny Depp, 59, lost out on $22.5 million after he was cut from the sixth and final installment. This happened as a result of his ex-wife Amber Heard’s 2018 Washington Post op-ed. In that, she alleged to be a domestic abuse survivor. Depp has played Captain Jack Sparrow for 15 years.

The hefty agreement, the source claimed, would also bring Depp back for a “spin-off” on the Disney+ show about the younger years of the Captain of the Black Pearl,” in addition to the sixth film.
