Johnny Depp has been dropped from new Pirates Of The Caribbean films, according to reports.
The actor, 55, has starred in five films over the past 15 years, but it seems he may have made his last appearance as Captain Jack Sparrow.
Original scriptwriter Stuart Beattie appeared to confirm the news to DailyMail TV as he revealed Disney has plans to rework the franchise.

While he did not confirm or deny when it was put to him that it seemed Depp is “finished as the lead of these movies”, Beattie nodded when it was suggested the star was out, and said: “I think he’s had a great run.
“Obviously, he’s made that character his own and it’s become the thing that he’s most famous for now.
“And kids all over the world love him as that character so I think it’s been great for him, it’s been great for us, so I’m just very, very happy about it.”
