Johnny Depp may be reprising his role as the beloved Captain Jack Sparrow for Disney’s sixth installment of the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise.  

Due to recent ‘revelations’ made in the court case between Depp and ex wife Amber Heard, Disney executive have allegedly been ‘lobbying’ for the 56-year-old actor’s return, We Got This Covered reported on Sunday.  

Back in 2016, it was rumored that Disney purposely attempted to ‘distance’ themselves from Depp when abuse allegations made by Heard were made public.

Pictures of Heard’s face adorned with bruises, which she claimed were caused by Depp throwing his phone at her, were later published. 

Depp denied the claims, but Heard received a $5 million payout from the actor upon signing a non-disclosure agreement, as part of the couple’s divorce settlement.  

‘The recent turn of events in Depp’s legal battle and the overwhelming support from the public in his favor has some of the Mouse House executives now lobbying for his return behind the scenes,’ wrote We Got This Covered.

Depp first portrayed the iconic role back in 2001 in Disney’s Pirates Of The Carribean: The Curse Of The Black Pearl.

He would go on to reprise the role in four Pirates films that followed. 

Back in October, Disney announced they would be creating a new Pirates Of The Caribbean chapter with the help of Chernobyl screenwriter Craig Mazin and Pirates alum Ted Elliot. 

There are no present details regarding the script’s plot, but Sunday’s report claimed that Disney is currently looking to make the film female led.

Which means Depp’s character will play ‘more of a supporting role’ in the highly anticipated film.

Johnny is currently in the midst of a libel case against British tabloid The Sun over a story published in 2018 that alleged the actor abused Heard.

Depp denied the claims made by the publication and was spotted arriving to High Court with the entirety of his legal team on Wednesday in London.

The full hearing will take place on March 23, where Heard is set to testify.

The couple met in 2011 when they co-starred in the movie The Rum Diary and were married in 2015.
