Superstar Johnny Depp has been dropped from the Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise as Disney Studios plans a major reboot, reports DailMail.co.uk.

After being asked if Depp is finished with the franchise, the Curse of the Black Pearl screenwriter Stuart Beattie nodded, implying his exit. He then expressed gratefulness for the star’s influence on the franchise. “I think he’s had a great run. I think Jack Sparrow will be his legacy. It’s the only character he’s played five times, it’s the character he dresses up in to visit children in hospitals,” Stuart said.

 

Recent reports claimed Deadpool’s writing team was working on the reboot and Beattie confirmed that Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are indeed working on script drafts. The pair penned the first two Deadpool blockbusters, Zombieland and 6 Underground. Beattie reacted, “I was laughing out of my seat in the opening credits of Deadpool so I am a big fan of those guys and I hope they do something really special.”
