Johnny Depp won't return to 'Pirates of the Caribbean'

Johnny Depp won't be returning as Jack Sparrow to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise any time soon

The actor's representative has denied a recent report that Depp would reprise his role following a $301 million deal with Disney

He played Captain Jack Sparrow in all five films, including the 2017 film Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

In May, Jerry Bruckheimer, who is a producer for the films, was asked if Edward Scissorhands would return

Amber Heard, Depp's ex-wife, won a high-profile defamation case against him earlier this month

He also claimed during the trial that Heard's accusations were the reason he lost the lucrative role in the film franchise

During a star-studded, six-week trial, a Virginia jury awarded $15 million to Depp while awarding $2 million to Heard

The trial captured the world's attention and revealed the little-known details of their lives
