Is Depp in $301 million Disney boost for Pirates’ return?

After Australian pop culture blog poptopic.com.au published a story last month with the headline, “Johnny Depp USD $301 million Disney deal revealed?!” the dogged team at Snopes smelled something funny and went in to investigate.

Their noses were right… 

The rumor, as they say, which was shared on Reddit, TikTok, Facebook, and Twitter, held that Depp, fresh off of his mostly victorious libel lawsuit against ex-wife Amber Heard, had been offered an enormous amount of money by The Walt Disney Studios to once again star as his “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie character, Jack Sparrow.

“However, we have yet to find any evidence that a deal for any amount of money is in the works between Depp and Disney.”
