A petition for Johnny Depp to return to Pirates of the Caribbean 6 has amassed more than 550,000 signatures.
It was posted on Change.org over two years ago but has amassed a ton of attention following the actor’s defamation case against his ex-wife, Amber Heard, who he is suing for $50million over an op-ed she wrote for The Washington Post.
The description claims that the Aquaman star has ‘ruined’ Depp’s career.

Elsewhere in the petition’s bio, it reads: “This man NEVER disappoints when he makes a movie, so why continue to keep him from doing Pirates of the Caribbean? That movie is nothing without him!
“Please sign this petition to help Johnny Depp get back to what he enjoys and does best.”
During the defamation trial, the 58-year-old’s agent, Jack Whigham, claimed that the star missed out on $22.5million when the sixth film was cancelled.
When at the stand, Whigham referenced Heard’s 2018 article and alleged: “It was a first-person account, extremely impactful.
“After the op-ed, it was impossible to get him a studio film, which is what we normally would have been focused on in that time period.”
Whigham also claimed that he had managed to ‘close a deal’ for Depp when it came to the sixth film for the franchise.
However, he argued that in 2019, it ‘became clear [producers at Disney] were going in a different direction’.
Despite these claims, there is reportedly no written proof of an agreement.
When cross-examined by Heard’s lawyers, the agent testified, saying: “It would be fair to say I have never seen a document… I have not seen ’22million’ written down on a page, you’re correct about that.”
