It is a fact that the news to drop the Hollywood actor Johnny Depp from his most popular movie franchise the Pirates of the Caribbean has shocked the media and fans to their core.
The actor who has made several headlines with his issues with ex-wife Amber Heard have turned out really bad for his career in the film industry.
Not just Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean but the actor had to make his exit from many Hollywood projects like Fantastic Beasts, which sparked outrage among fans.
Depp'sPirates of the Caribbean co-star Kevin McNally, who portrayed the famous character of Mr. Gibbs from the popular franchise has shared similar thoughts about Depp’s exit and felt that it would be a "criminal" act not to allow Depp to play the iconic Jack Sparrow in the franchise, adding that he created a "modern legend" with the character.
As reported in Yahoo News, he said, "Yes is the simple answer to that. My feelings about this are very complex because in a sense there was a slight feeling that the franchise itself had played out a little bit, so a reboot is a reasonable idea. I don’t think a reboot if you concentrate on younger characters, should still exclude Jack Sparrow."
According to reports from The Hollywood Reporter, Disney was not in favor of executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer’s idea of roping in the now-contentious actor for a cameo in the film which will be led by Margot Robbie.
The report claims that bringing back Depp could damage the reputation of the film being ‘family friendly.’
