Johnny Depp May Get $301M to Mumble as Captain Jack. Meanwhile, Amber Heard Hoping for T.J. Maxx Sponsorship

Johnny Depp may get paid $301 million to come back as Captain Jack in Pirates of the Caribbean 6 and a spin-off on Disney Plus. Meanwhile, Amber Heard supporters are close to the target goal of $2,000 on GoFundMe for her. Congrats to Amber! When do we start looking at their outcomes and think, yea, this is a little imbalanced.

Depp’s payday is just a rumor from Poptopic, a random Australian media who are using an “industry insider.” This could be the lowest level worker at Disney selling this story for $25. But let’s run with it.

Disney are very interested in patching up their relationship with Johnny Depp. They reached out to the actor prior to his defamation trial against Amber Heard and asked whether he would be interested in returning for another Pirates film or two.

The  source says they sent Depp a gift basket.

Disney also started writing a script that includes Jack Sparrow with the hopes of Depp agreeing to star.

The $301m will include a donation to the charity of Depp’s choice. And let’s assume they pay that charity in full, unlike someone we know (looking at you Amber). $301m is an odd number so let’s assume that $1m goes to charity?

The deal would include a spin-off of Captain Jack’s early life. Which actually sounds fun. Everyone loves a good origin story.

But a Depp rep says, take a beat. They told NBC News “this is made up.” This translates to we’re still negotiating.

Whatever happens, Depp’s looking like he’ll get a hero’s welcome back. Heard, on the other hand, is planning to hit all the T.J. Maxx’s across the U.S to fill time.
