The "Pirates of the Caribbean" producer Jerry Bruckheimer says that the future of the franchise will be without Depp.

It has been 5 years since Johnny Depp last protrayed the famous Jack Sparrow and it will sadly be his last.
Producer Jerry Bruckheimer revealed that two more “Pirates” scripts are currently in development, but neither will include Depp as Jack Sparrow.

Margot Robbie role was announced in 2020 that she will be a lead pirate in one of the two pirate scripts that are being produced.

Depp is currently facing a $50 million defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard. Due to this defamation Depp was suppose to receive $22.2 million for the next "Pirate" films but disney has now decided to go in another direction.

“My feeling was that these characters should be able to have their proper goodbye, as it were,” Depp said. “A franchise can only last for so long, and there’s a way to end a franchise like that, and I thought that the characters deserved to have their way out, to end the franchise on a very good note. I planned on continuing until it was time to stop.”
