Disney Offer Depp
The publication also revealed that Disney is contemplating making Depp an offer of $300 million, but the famous actor has not yet accepted their offer. When Depp addressed the issue when testifying under oath at the shocking libel case trial.
He previously declared that he would never work on the Disney film again.”If Disney came to you with $300 million and a million alpacas, nothing on this earth would get you to go back and work with Disney on a Pirates of the Caribbean picture,” Heard’s attorney questioned Depp during the trial.
Depp admitted, “That is accurate,” before adding, “Two years had passed with a continual worldwide discussion about me being this wife-beater. Disney was therefore likely attempting to sever ties to be safe.
“At that time, the #MeToo movement was at its height. My character was left in place for the rides. They continued to market Captain Jack Sparrow dolls, he continued. “They continued to sell goods. Simply put, they didn’t want to uncover anything following me, according to Depp.
