Disney Blocked Johnny Depp’s Pirates of the Caribbean Return

The entertainment conglomerate had distanced itself from the 57-year-old actor even before his 'wife beater' libel trial in the UK, despite never formally severing ties according to The Hollywood Reporter.

But the publication also claims that Disney 'balked' at executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer's idea of bringing back Depp for a cameo in the female-centric spin-off of the franchise, rumored to be led by Margot Robbie.
