Well, there is now a petition resurfacing again after two years on Change.org. This appeal is for Disney to give Johnny Depp one of his roles back. The audience wants to see Johnny Depp in the role of Captain Jack Sparrow once again. This character exists in the franchise of Pirates of the Caribbean. The petition, which is getting famous again, has been created by Riza Siddiqui.
She wrote two years ago that the company had greenlit the reboot called Dead Men Tell No Tales because of the income they have earned from the previous films at the box office. She says what Disney does not understand is that in the absence of Johnny Depp in the character of Captain Jack Sparrow, their ship is destined to sink. She says the creators will never be able to reach the horizon they are all finding. This particular petition, right now, has over 290,000 signatories.
Petition to bring Johnny Depp back getting popular once again!
It has been revealed that Disney is rebooting the franchise film with a female-led story in mind. They have cast actress Margot Robbie, popularly is known for Birds of Prey, for the new Pirates of the Caribbean film. The tale is set to be written by Christina Hodson, a scribe from DC Films. Right now, no one much knows about the details of the plot. Although, it has been disclosed that the film will reportedly launch a new franchise which is based on Disney theme park ride. Well, you guys should know that The House of Mouse also has another Pirates film in the process of production. They have joined forces with Craig Mazin, who is the creator of Chernobyl. Ted Elliot, the franchise vet, is also present on the set.
This petition has been thrown light on after two years. Keeping the current situation in mind, we know how Depp has lost his role as Gellert Grindelwald. This character can be seen in the Fantastic Beasts franchise. Actor Mads Mikkelsen is currently in talks to take over this role from Depp. Mads is widely known for his works in Marvel’s Doctor Strange. We know how it was Johnny Depp who appeared in both the franchise films, that is, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, along with Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald.
Here is what Johnny Depp wrote on his Instagram after quitting Fantastic Beasts!
It all happened just last week when Warner Brothers personally asked the actor to step down from his role as Grindelwald. He writes on his Instagram that in light of recent events, he would like to make a short statement. At first, he thanked everybody who has been with him and gifted him with their support as well as loyalty. He says he has been humbled and moved by many of our messages of love and concern that is cast his way, particularly over the last few days. The second thing that he wants us to know was that he wished to let us know that he has been asked to resign by Warner Brothers. They asked him to quit Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts. Johnny says he respects the decision and has agreed to the request.
