Pirates Of The Caribbean Reboot Casts This Actress To Replace Johnny Depp?

I have a good news and a bad news. The good one says that Jack Sparrow is returning while bad one says that Pirates Of The Caribbean reboot is going to bring many huge changes in this saga. While the directors and producers themselves are revealing many things, you might be wondering about the face who will be filling the shoe of our Jack Sparrow.

No wonder if you’ve heard any rumors or speculations in regards of this huge development, but I’ve gotten a very solid report which is officially published by many giant Hollywood sources like Yahoo Entertainment and more. So let’s dive into the world of Pirates with this upcoming Pirates Of The Caribbean Reboot.

Is Johnny Depp Returning For Pirates Of The Caribbean Reboot?

The highly popular franchise of Pirates Of The Caribbean is very well known for delivering us some of the most memorable moments and events of history. It is the power of this IP that we still craves for more, however, Johnny Depp is the one who was playing a massive role in taking this saga forward single handedly.

Things went wild when Amber Heard took internet on storm by taking her relationship with Johnny into courts. While everything was under process, Disney made a huge mistake by firing Johnny and hence – pushing this franchise into the sea of uncertainties.

Now that Johnny has officially won the case and things are returning back on track, Producer Jerry Bruckheimer, who produced each of the five Pirates movies that starred Johnny Depp as his iconic pirate character Captain Jack Sparrow, in a recent interview with ComicBook.com said the next installment of Pirates of the Caribbean will be a reboot instead of being a straight sequel, People reported. He said:

“But we’re gonna reboot Pirates, so that is easier to put together because you don’t have to wait for certain actors,”

It brings in a big question: “Will Johnny Depp return as Jack Sparrow?” If not, then who is going to fill his shoes? Well, neither Johnny or any of his agency, nor the Disney company itself has spoken a single word on this query. However, some previous reports were promoting the name of Ayo Edebiri to lead the Pirates Of The Caribbean Reboot. But again, is this true?

Is Ayo Edibiri Replacing Johnny Depp in Pirates Of The Caribbean Reboot?

As per Yahoo Entertainment and their sources, Ayo Edibiri is officially considered for a Pirates Of The Caribbean spin-off but it isn’t same movie as Margot Robbie’s, and it isn’t Pirates Of The Caribbean Reboot either.

The original source of this update and report is Daniel Richtman who is very well known for his precision and accuracy when it comes to Hollywood updates. It was previously reported that POTC 6 will feature Margot Robbie in lead, but this is also under uncertain conditions and we have to wait a bit more to hear official words.

As of now, neither Ayo nor Johnny has joined the cast of this newly announced Pirates Of The Caribbean Reboot. Hollywood, and especially Disney and company is currently going through a variety of changes in both it’s upcoming projects and staff. Bob Iger himself is claiming that they won’t produce any sequel or project if it doesn’t meets their expectations.

Long story short, I can confirm that Ayo Edibiri is not under any type of talks to play or fill the shoe of Jack Sparrow in Pirates Of The Caribbean reboot. I personally feels like Johnny Depp will not return to lead this movie, especially after whatever has happened to him in past few years. Still as a fan, I can hope for the best.
