In October of this year, it became known that Disney Studio will restart the popular pirate franchise and may not call Johnny Depp for the lead role. Now, NME insiders report that in the sixth Pirates of the Caribbean film a new heroine will replace Captain Jack Sparrow – a pirate named Redd.
Johnny Depp has been the star of Pirates of the Caribbean for five films, but obviously this has come to an end. According to rumors from HNE, in the center of the plot of the sixth film will be a red-haired pirate Redd, whose character has recently appeared in the eponymous attraction in Disneyland Park. The portal emphasizes that the script is under development, and the decision of the writers may change. The course of the Disney studio seems logical against the background of the ambulance premieres of “Captain Marvel”, “Maleficenta 2” and the solo album “The Black Widow”, the main stars in which female characters will perform. According to sources, this is the right decision, because the image of Jack Sparrow has long become boring to the audience.
While the script is being developed by the creators of Deadpool Rhett Reeves and Paul Wernick, the candidatures for the role of the main character and director remain unknown. The HNE edition offers the role of Daisy Ridley, who knows how to fence and is in great shape thanks to the filming of the Star Wars franchise. The final of the fifth film left the opportunity for the return of the characters Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley, but whether they will take part in the future project is also in question.
