Jerry Bruckheimer hinted at Johnny Depp returning to the “Pirates of The Caribbean” franchise a week after praising the Hollywood star. At the 95th Academy Awards, Bruckheimer was on the red carpet for his work on Top Gun: Maverick.

While participating in a Q&A with Entertainment Tonight, he expressed his desire for Depp to make a comeback in the upcoming Pirates movie. His team is also very excited about it.

During the little chit-chat, Bruckheimer said to Entertainment Tonight that: “We’re all working on it [next Pirates film]. We’ll see how it comes out. We’re very excited, I think we’re gonna have a great screenplay when, and we’re getting close.”

Little later Bruckheimer was asked about Depp’s potential return, and he said: “We’ll see. I would love it. I would love to have him in the movie – that’s all that I can tell you.”

Why did Johnny Depp refused to work with Disney at first?

  • Depp testified that Disney dropped him from the sixth Pirates of the Caribbean movie due to abuse allegations made by his ex-wife Amber Heard.
  • According to his legal team, Depp suffered a loss of $22 million due to an op-ed written by Heard in the Washington Post, which accused him of domestic abuse.

Disney dropped the US actor which left Depp feeling he was “guilty until proven innocent” with Disney executives.

Bruckheimer’s latest comments follow his recent interview with Deadline, in which he praised Johnny Depp as a good and caring person. He said:

He’s somebody that you can rely on and he’s just terrific. I think Johnny is an utter friend and an amazing artist and, again, you go through things in life you wish you hadn’t, but he’s still a talented artist.

Following the end of the trial, Depp has returned to the spotlight, with his musical pursuits gaining attention in recent times. He had played with his close friend and legendary guitarist Jeff Beck before his death earlier this year and is now preparing to pay a final tribute to him.


While the news of Johnny Depp’s return to Pirates of the Caribbean remains uncertain, it’s exciting to speculate about the possibility. The franchise has been a beloved part of pop culture for nearly two decades, and Depp’s Jack Sparrow is iconic in the film industry.
