Uh-oh….looks like it could be curtains for one of our favorite big screen characters.
A source close to Walt Disney Pictures revealed this week that Johnny Depp’s swashbuckler, Captain Jack Sparrow will likely perish in the next ‘Pirates Of the Caribbean’ film.
The reason?…well, OTHER than the hefty salary involved? Easy. Audiences dig newcomers Kaya Scodelario and Brenton Thwaites.
The source, who would like to remain anonymous for obvious reasons, stated “Once upon a time, Depp was the reason to watch these movies. But now there is a feeling that is not the case among the audiences. Having Brenton and Kaya try a film on their own could breathe new life into this.”
What do you think? Can ‘Pirates’ sail without Captain Jack on board? I tend to think not, but would love to hear your thoughts… ~ Jason
