OREANDA-NEWS. Disney producers have decided to kill Captain Jack Sparrow in the next film of the «Pirates of the Caribbean» franchise. This is reported by the portal We Got This Covered. It is noted that in the next picture of the series, the death of Jack Sparrow will be announced. However, some heroes will consider the death a staging, which the pirate went to after the announcement of a reward for his head. Thus, the authors of the franchise leave the opportunity to return Johnny Depp or his character in the performance of another actor to the project.

Meanwhile, it is possible that another veteran of the franchise will appear in the new film — Will Turner, played by Orlando Bloom, who will connect all the parts of the story. He has already played a small role in the previous film in the series «Dead Men Tell No Tales», in which Will's son Henry hunts for Poseidon's trident and dreams of removing the curse of the «Flying Dutchman» from his father. In the scene after the credits, Turner dreams of the former owner of «The Dutchman» Davy Jones: the authors can develop the line of their possible confrontation in the new film.

The star of «Pirates of the Caribbean» Johnny Depp previously lost a serious libel case against the British newspaper The Sun. In 2017, he divorced actress Amber Heard, who later accused the ex-spouse of violence, after which Depp filed a defamation lawsuit for $50 million. He lost the case.
