Johnny Depp Pockets $55 Million for Another Pirates of the Caribbean
Johnny Depp strikes me as a creepy dude. His acceptance speech at the MTV Movie Awards was rather bleak juxtaposed his over-enthused, highly-anticipated blockbuster rolls. Creepy or not, Johnny Depp is banking on this Pirates of the Caribbean franchise. His upcoming roll, in the fourth installment, will net him over $55 million dollars.
The record payout to revive the role of rogue Jack Sparrow eclipses Tom Hanks’ $50 million for the Da Vinci Code sequel Angels And Demons.
A source said: “It’s a lot of swag but they just can’t make another without Sparrow.” (source)
