In the fifth installment of “Pirates of the caribbean,” Johnny Depp is playing Captain Jack Sparrow. There are rumors that the actor won’t play the same character in the future installments, but nothing is confirmed. We know that Depp was almost fired from his role in the installment. However, the filmmakers Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg reconsidered him for the character as Dwayne Johnson and Brad Pitt refused to play Jack Sparrow. It seems that no other actor can play the captain better than Johnny Depp. Captain Jack Sparrow works alongside Armando Salazar, and the two decide to fight against a ghost who is killing innocents in large numbers.

Depp’s role in the movie

While speaking about his role, Johnny Depp said he is lucky to play Captain Jack Sparrow in the fourth and fifth installments of “Pirates of the Caribbean.” However, he does not find anything new in the character and has no plans to appear in the next installment. The 53-year-old actor is described as a nightmare to work with due to his weird lifestyle. According to Stars Post, Johnny Depp is difficult to work with and always wants to play the lead in a movie. Disney aims to keep the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise alive without Johnny. The studio has started looking for an alternative. Auditions are being done in Turkey, China, and Canada. There are chances that a newcomer will play the captain in the future installments.

‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’

The new installment of “Pirates of the Caribbean” has a release date of May 26. Post-production on the movie is finished, and the project is directed by Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning. Jeff Nathanson has penned the script, with Jerry Bruckheimer serving as co-producer. Kevin McNally, Johnny Depp, and Geoffrey Rush are returning from the previous installment as Joshamee Gibbs, Jack Sparrow, and Hector Barbossa, respectively.

Brenton Thwaites, Javier Bardem, and Kaya Scodelario have been recruited to play supporting roles. Orlando Bloom previously appeared in an installment of “On Stranger Tides.” He plays Will Turner in the Espen Sandberg project.

The filmmakers cite the first installment as an inspiration for the script. In 2016, it was rumored that Jeff Nathanson would play the role of captain but he failed to give dates so the directors finalized Depp. Espen says that he's not interested in working with Johnny Depp due to his arrogant behavior. It's impossible to work with an actor who does not fulfill his words.
