Disney Blocked Johnny Depp’s Pirates of the Caribbean Return

The THR report claimed that super producer Bruckheimer has been one of Depp's 'biggest champions' alleging that he tried to cover for the star, saying his finger injury happened because "he got it caught in a car door" despite Depp blaming it on his ex-wife Amber Heard.

However, despite his efforts to get Depp to return to the franchise, Disney said no and his relationship with the actor is said have frayed in recent months.
