These past few years have been difficult for Johnny Depp’s career in the movie industry. For someone who gave us such incredible and unforgettable moments in cinema, he has suffered a lot of major blows after his ex, Amber Heard, released an op-ed on against him through The Washington Post. Johnny Depp slowly started losing his roles. During his latest trial against Amber Heard, he spoke out about how it felt to be taken out of his industry:
“It’s been six years of trying times,” “It’s pretty strange when one day you’re Cinderella, so to speak, then 0.6 seconds [later] you’re Quasimodo.” One of the recent movie characters he lost was Grindelwald from The Secrets of Dumbledore. His character was replaced by Mads Mikkelsen. And one of the most major losses to his career was when Disney decided to take his iconic character of “Jack Sparrow” out of the upcoming Pirates of The Caribbean sequel.
For us, we can’t imagine a Pirates of The Caribbean movie without Johnny Depp playing Jack Sparrow. Depp single-handedly made Jack Sparrow as iconic and as memorable as he is today, he is synonymous with Jack Sparrow. His removal from the massive franchise was also in response to Amber Heard’s accusation, as Depp stated in his testimony:
“My opinion is that it was related to the accusations that Amber has made,” But, things seem to be changing for the better. Johnny Depp will be making his big-screen return as King Louis XV. The movie will be directed by French director Maïwenn. While Johnny Depp’s return to Hollywood remains to be seen, he is certainly going to be starring in one of French cinema’s biggest movies – and we are here for it!
