Who will replace Depp in the new franchise?

Producer Jerry Bruckheimer stated that he is currently negotiating with Margot Robbie, one of the world's most beautiful actresses, to replace Johnny Depp in the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise.

He said that two scenarios are being worked on currently. One with this actress, and one script without her. He told The Sunday Times Culture that he is not expecting Johnny Depp to return to this franchise but still, "the future has yet to be decided".

The trial of Johnny Depp, who is suing his ex-wife for defamation because of a 2018 article in the Washington Post, where she wrote about surviving domestic violence, is underway. After five films made over fifteen years, Johnny Depp was fired just four days after the Washington Post published a text written by Amber in December 2018. The actor admitted that he had never seen this film franchise.

I didn't watch it, but I believe that the film went well, the producers wanted sequels and I was willing to continue shooting. When you know a character better than a writer, then you need to be a real character and add your own words. I believed in the character completely," Depp said at the trial, reports the "Daily Mail".

On the other hand, fans launched a petition on social networks, they want to see Captain Jack Sparrow. Currently, it has half a million signatures, and it says:

Can you even imagine that there is no Jack Sparrow? No epic scenes, no funny dialogues, and the happiest and most unlucky guy of all time? Don't you realize that without Johnny Depp and Jack Sparrow you will sink, Even if it means nothing to you, please sign this petition for those who REALLY want Johnny Depp as their Black Pearl Captain! Johnny Carried the whole movie!”

They must return him to rule the seas again unless the actor himself decides to resign from the role, the petition concludes. What do you think, is it even possible to make this film without Johnny Depp and the famous Jack Sparrow? It remains to be seen...
