Captain Jack Sparrow, the most popular character of the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ film franchise is not returning from the next movie of the series.
A producer of Walt Disney has confirmed that after bringing immense popularity to the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ series for the last 14 years, Johnny Depp is going to retire from the character Jack Sparrow.
Mentioning the reason for this sudden change, the production chief of Walt Disney Sean Bailey has said that to bring new enthusiasm and energy to the film they are sending Captain Sparrow to retirement.
And not only saying good bye to the most iconic character of the series, Walt Disney is going to make big change in the story line too. They have appointed Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, writers of another recent popular franchise ‘Deadpool’ to reshape pirate’s script.
The last film of the ‘Pirate’s of the Caribbean’ series has totally failed to meet the audience expectations. In fact, among all the 5 films of the franchise, ‘Dead Men Tell No Tales’ of 2017 witnessed the lowest turnout ever, with receiving criticism from the reviewers as free.
The 55 years old Hollywood star Johnny Depp has been portraying the central character Captain Jack Sparrow, the notorious sea pirate for all the 5 films of the series. With the peculiar but eye-catching look, makeup, costume in one hand and Johnny Depp’s unforgettable performance on the other hand, the character not only became one of the most famous roles in the film history, it took the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ movie franchise at the peak of popularity as well. The $4.5 billion gross profit has made the series 12th biggest film franchise ever in the history.
