Pirates of the Caribbean: Zac Efron is not replacing Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow

Months after various reports claimed that Disney was looking for an actor to essay the role of Captain Jack Sparrow,  Johnny Depp has reportedly been brought back to Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.

According to multiple reports, Disney felt that  Depp didn’t fit with their brand after he was accused of domestic abuse by ex-wife Amber Heard.

The company was therefore looking for a replacement and was reported to have found Zac Efron as potential candidate for the  role.

Depp fans were outraged when the news of Zac Efron replacing Johnny Depp as the Pirate broke, but now it seems that Disney has changed their mind.

Disney seems to be a bit more comfortable to call the actor back in following latest updates  in the case involving Depp and Heard.

Rumours are also swirling that a female actor  will play the lead role while Depp’s Captain Jack will simply be a surrogate.
