Update: Pirates of the Caribbean 6 believed to be a Success without Depp’s Jack Sparrow

Published

on

While it is doubtful that Johnny Depp’s Jack Sparrow will appear in Pirates of the Caribbean 6, spectators might take solace in the fact that Ted Elliott, the original Pirates of the Caribbean screenwriter, will pen the sequel. It does not seem that Johnny Depp will reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in the long-delayed sequel Pirates of the Caribbean 6 as of August 2022. The much-delayed series entry will still have the feel of a classic Pirates of the Caribbean film, according to the sequel’s scriptwriter.

Only a few months after admitting that two independent sixth Pirates of the Caribbean films were being worked on concurrently and none was finished, legendary blockbuster producer Jerry Bruckheimer has revealed that the sequel is occurring. It’s unclear what will happen with Margot Robbie’s Pirates of the Caribbean spinoff, but it is known that a straight sequel named Pirates of the Caribbean 6 is in the works. Another encouraging news for the series is that one of the screenwriters from the original film is writing the screenplay.

Ted Elliott, who co-wrote the first two Pirates of the Caribbean films, is presently working on the sixth instalment. According to Bruckheimer, Elliott will bring to the project “excellent mastery of the characters.” Elliott’s resume may debunk the assumption that Pirates of the Caribbean 6 won’t be able to reproduce the spirit of the previous films in the franchise, despite the fact that Depp’s Jack Sparrow’s absence may leave some fans with that impression. Elliott contributed to some of the greatest blockbusters of the 1990s and 2000s in addition to the Pirates of the Caribbean films.

Ted Elliott, one of the most prolific blockbuster screenwriters of the twenty-first century, contributed to all five of the original Pirates of the Caribbean films, the National Treasure series, both Zorro films, and Shrek. Although his career did contain some duds like Treasure Planet and The Lone Ranger, even these commercially unsuccessful ventures were eventually considered as underappreciated by critics if not viewers.

He also has credits on the original, animated Aladdin and Joe Dante’s unappreciated Small Soldiers. With the majority of his films receiving positive reviews, if not outright accolades, Elliott’s career is one of the most spectacular blockbuster screenplay streaks in modern Hollywood history.

But it’s understandable that viewers won’t be persuaded of Pirates of the Caribbean 6’s promise. After all, Elliott participated in the scripting of the later, inferior sequels to Pirates of the Caribbean, which both reviewers and average moviegoers found to be disappointing. Additionally, Elliott co-wrote the original Pirates of the Caribbean with Terry Rossio, who hasn’t yet been named as one of the writers for Pirates of the Caribbean 6.

Therefore, the return of a key member of the franchise’s productive creative team in Pirates of the Caribbean 6 may not be enough to win over some dubious spectators. In spite of Depp’s expected absence, the likelihood that Pirates of the Caribbean 6 feels like a genuine Pirates of the Caribbean series entry has increased.

She told the reporter, “When Tim Burton asked me to do it, I was like ‘whatever you want me to do Tim!’ and then the idea of me playing Morticia, who’s such an iconic, wonderful, juicy character was wonderful.”

Speaking about the show, she said, “It turned out so much better than I think anybody anticipated.”

Catherine also praised her co-star, “Jenny Ortega is just marvellous as Wednesday and through the eyes of Tim Burton it’s a lot of fun.”

The 53-year-old Hollywood star continued, “I’m really happy to be part of it I must say.”

Nia Long Says ‘Fresh Prince’ Costar Will Smith ‘Carried a Burden for Many Years to Represent’ Perfection

Nia Long is proud of how far Will Smithhas come.

In speaking of her former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air costar, Long, 52, applauded Smith, 54, for how he’s handled himself in the spotlight.

“I will always love him. He’s had an incredible career, and he’s carried a burden for many years to try — to represent what perfection looks like,” Long, who played Smith’s character’s girlfriend and fiancée Beulah “Lisa” Wilkes on the series, said in an interview with Yahoo’s Kevin Polowy. “Or what achievement looks like.”

Long also reflected on her generation’s idea of “celebrity” — and how Smith fit into that box. “I don’t think that — at least when we were growing up — there was room to be human. I think he’s now able to be human,” she added.

Last year, Smith went viral after slappingChris Rock on stage at the Oscars. The unscripted moment came after Rock, 57, mocked Smith’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith’s shaved hairstyle, which was done to her alopecia.

Smith, in turn, faced a great deal of backlash before he eventually apologized for his behavior.

Though Long did not directly mention Smith’s outburst, she equated life in the spotlight to that of strict routine, which sometimes does not allow authenticity.

“We all have our moments in life where we need to reconcile things that we suppress,” she said. “And I think — it’s hard growing up in this business and being front and center every day, all day.”

Of her own career, and backseat spotlight, she added. “Think about it — I can go to the grocery store anytime I want to, and for the most part, people are like ‘Hey, Nia Long.’ No one’s chasing me down the street. I still have my anonymity, and I appreciate that about my career.”

During the conversation, Long also got emotional discussing the difficulties she’s faced in recent months. Long went through a very public breakup last year with her fiancé, former Boston Celtics Coach Ime Udoka, after 13 years together. He had been caught having an affair with a female subordinate within the Celtics organization.

“I’ve had some pretty devastating moments in my life over the last couple of months, and I’ve had to just say ‘It’s alright. You’ll pick yourself back up’ — oh, my God I’m about to cry,” Long added. “You pick yourself back up, and you keep it moving.”

Amber Heard very well planned steps in divorce against Johnny Depp to take him down during his lowest phases? Read details now!

Amber Heard has been declared guilty of defaming Johnny Depp during the latest Virginia trial. She was ordered to pay a compensation of $10.35 million which was later settled for only $1 million. But did you know, the Aquaman star strategically took steps during divorce? Well, the details of it will leave you shell-shocked.

A lot had been said and done during the one-year span that Johnny and Amber remained married. There were accusations of cheating with Elon Musk, a threesome with Cara Delevingne and so much more! On the other hand, the Justice League actress accused him of domestic violence, and verbal abuse amongst other claims.

A report by Animated Times now reveals details that are truly giving us goosebumps. It looks like Amber Heard strategically planned to leave Johnny Deppdestructed. She allegedly filed for divorce citing their official separation day as 17th April 2016. Betty Sue Palmer, JD’s mom, passed away just 2 days prior to that and the actor was facing his worst possible phase.

On the other hand, Amber heard filed for a restraining order against Johnny Depp on 27th May 2016. That was again the day Johnny Depp was ideally supposed to celebrate the birthday of his daughter Lily-Rose Depp. But unfortunately, his ex-wife stole the thunder.

One refuses to believe that all of this is mere coincidence!

Meanwhile, Johnny Depp denied all the allegations made against him by Amber Heard and termed them “heinous.”

He reacted to them in court and said, “It’s insane to hear heinous accusations of violence, s*xual violence, that she’s attributed to me, that she’s accused me of. I don’t think anyone enjoys having to split themselves open and tell the truth, but there are times when one simply has to because it’s gotten out of control. Horrible. Ridiculous. Humiliating. Ludicrous. Painful. Savage. Unimaginably brutal. Cruel and all false.”
