Johnny Depp ‘Back For Pirates Of Caribbean Film In $300m Deal’

Published

on

Disney are reportedly hoping to get Johnny Depp to star in the sixth Pirates of the Caribbean film and a Disney Plus spin-off series in a $300 million deal.

Bosses are said to want the actor, 59, to reprise his role as the legendary Captain Jack Sparrow after he won his blockbuster legal battle against his ex-wife Amber Heard, 36, earlier this month.

Johnny was reportedly dropped from the franchise in 2018 and said during his recent defamation trial he wouldn’t be open to returning in the future.

A source however has claimed Disney want the actor to reprise his iconic role in not just the sixth film, but also a spin-off series exploring the character’s backstory.

The insider told Poptopic the company are keen to get Depp back for the sixth film as well as the spin-off series – with it claimed they’re offering him around £244 million.

They told the outlet earlier this month: “Disney are very interested in patching up their relationship with [Depp].”

The source said the company reached out to Depp prior to his defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard – which concluded with him winning the legal battle.

They claimed Disney had asked if he would be interested in returning for another film, with him reportedly sent a gift basket and a “heartfelt letter” at some point by them.

The source said: “The studio has already penned up a draft for a film about Jack Sparrow – so they are very hopeful that Johnny will forgive them and return as [his character].”

The source claimed Disney are preparing a deal that’s worth $301 million (£244 million), including a sizeable donation to a charity of Depp’s choice.

Depp was reportedly dropped from the sixth film around the time that his ex-wife Heard wrote her now-infamous Washington Post op-ed about domestic abuse.

The actor sued Heard for $50 million after she wrote the op-ed in 2018 in which she called herself a “public figure representing domestic abuse.” Heard countersued Depp for $100 million.

2022 BET Awards: Full List Of Winners

Published

on

The BET Awards were back and bigger than ever.

Taraji P. Henson returned as host, reprising her gig from last year, to lead the celebration of talent across music, television, film, and sports at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles Sunday night.

Doja Cat led the pack with six nominations including album of the year, video of the year, and both Best Female R&B/Pop Artist and Best Female Hip Hop artist.

The human turned living frequency formerly/currently/potentially known as Sean “Diddy” Combs was honored with the Lifetime Achievement Award with a starry lineup of friends paying tribute to the producer/artist, including Mary J. Blige, Jodeci, Nas, Lil’ Kim, Busta Rhymes, the Lox, Bryson Tiller, and Faith Evans.

Lizzo opened the show, flute in hand, dressed as a glamorous disco ball to perform her single “About Damn Time.” Janelle Monáe then graced the stage, giving a special shout-out to “all the gays in the house” and giving a “f— you” to the Supreme Court, before presenting the first award for the night, Best Female R&B/Pop Artist to Jazmine Sullivan.

R&B queen Brandy made a surprise appearance, lending Jack Harlow a hand and — channeling her Queens emcee character — a few bars for his performance of “First Class.” Lil Wayne had previously snuck out to duet with Harlow. Speaking of surprises, Ye (né Kanye West) came out covered from head to toe, breathing heavily through a mask as he helped Babyface present Diddy the Lifetime Achievement Award.

“I was signed to Puff without him even knowing,” Ye said of his formative years, joking, “that statement is not legally binding.” Ye, feeling schticky, also joked that Diddy has inspired both his “life” and his “wife” choices.

“And here we are,” he said. “Thanks for that Puff.”
