Am I the only one who found this little turnabout amusing?
Appetite for money, of course. When Depp was first involved in that “#BelieveAllWomen” court case, Disney dropped him like a hot rock.
I wrote this at the time:
Considering that Depp’s performance was the only thing that made the whole thing at all watchable, this should be its death knell, and not a moment too soon. I watched the first two Pirates movies with huge enjoyment, lost interest after that. I doubt that anything Disney does would make me watch another one, unless the new lead character was portrayed by Carol Vorderman, in the nude.
Now that Depp’s been cleared of all the accusations made by his loony ex-houri, no doubt the foul moneygrubbers at Woke Disney will be all too willing to welcome him back into the fold, to play Captain Jack Sparrow for the umpteenth time so they can refill their vault at Gringotts Bank.
And I hope that he tells them to go and fuck themselves.
