Depp could reprise the Captain Jack Sparrow role. The actor is rumored to be getting paid over $300 million.

Hollywood actor Johnny Depp is rumored to be getting paid more than $300 million to return to Pirates of the Caribbean, after being removed from the franchise in 2018, following sexual assault allegations by his ex-wife Amber Heard.

A source close to Disney allegedly dropped the bombshell in a new interview with Aussie outlet Poptopic.

''The deal is reportedly for Johnny Depp to return as Jack Sparrow,'' the little leaking birdie claimed to the Down Under. The 59-year-old Donnie Brasco star had played the swashbuckling buccaneer in five.

Pirates movies over the last 19 years, before Disney dropped him from the sixth and final installment in the wake of 36-year-old Heard's 2018 Washington Post op-ed which claimed defamed him as a domestic abuser.

This reportedly caused the Edward Scissorhands icon to lose out on a $22.5 million payday.

However, following a highly publicised defamation suit win earlier this month, it appears that the House of Mouse could be willing to reinstate him in the iconic role.

''Disney are very interested in patching up their relationship with Johnny Depp,'' the source alleged to Poptopic.

''They reached out to the actor prior to his defamation trial against Amber Heard and asked whether he would be interested in returning for another Pirate film or two.''

As per E! Online, a source connected to the actor reportedly told NBC News that ''this is made up'' - but reps for Depp and Disney are yet to comment on the matter.

Meanwhile, the rumored comback deal, which is allegedly worth a cool $301 million, would reportedly see Depp ''return as Jack Sparrow in ''Pirates of the Caribbean 6 and a spin-off Disney+ series about the early life of the Captain of the Black Pearl,'' claimed the source.

The insider added, '' What I can tell you is that the studio has already penned up a draft for a film about Jack Sparrow, so they are very hopeful that Johnny will forgive them and return as his iconic character.''
