Johnny Depp to earn £32 million for last Pirates role
Johnny Depp is set to earn a record-breaking £32 million for his upcoming role in the fourth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean movie.
The payout for his role as Captain Jack Sparrow will see Depp become the highest-paid actor in Hollywood, eclipsing Tom Hanks’ £29 million for the Da Vinci Code sequel Angels and Demons.
A source told The Sun: ‘It’s a lot of swag but they just can’t make another without Sparrow.’
But it’s so far unclear whether Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley will be reprising their roles for the fourth movie of the super-successful series, which has so far earned Disney £1.52 billion.
