This is a piece of news that every one of us, deep inside wished for, Johnny Depp will be back for Pirates of the Caribbean 6. As I write this article the whole agreement has not been finalized, but something tells me, it will be soon.
Johnny had previously lost a lot of brand deals and movie contracts such as Fantastic Beast 3 and Pirates of the Caribbean due to the defamation case against his ex-wife Amber Heard. The trial was held in Fairfax, Virginia. It was a long and exhausting 6 weeks. Now that everything is settled and he came out victorious in the defamation case, the next logical step is to leave his past behind and try to get back his life together.

A report in the media suggests Disney has sent an apology letter to Mr.Depp asking him to join them as Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribean 6. This request is followed by an offer of about 350 Million Dollars (About Rs.2534 INR).
Interestingly, if we look at Pirates of The Caribean as a franchise, some sources state, that it has grossed over 4.5 Billion dollars worldwide. As of today, it stands as the 14th highest-grossing film series of all time. It holds the record of the first movie series to take home over a billion dollars in gross revenue for more than two movies in the series.
