Apparently Captain Jack Sparrow has some more adventuring to do, and, Disney feels its worth while enough to pay Johnny Depp a staggering $56 million dollars to reprise his role in a fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film.
Granted, the film wouldn’t be the same without him, and given its financial success, they can afford this sort of incentive. It almost seems to me that they approached Depp, and he threw a ridiculous number out there, and they took it.
So either, this will go down in history has the most any actor has been paid for a role for a successful movie, or the biggest waste of money in the history of the medium.
Either way, nice work Johnny, can I borrow some money?
