Popular American actor Johnny Depp has been dropped from the Pirates of the Caribbean film franchise as Disney Studios plans a major reboot.

Depp was the major character in five Pirates movies over the past 15 years – but it seems Captain Jack Sparrow has made his final trip on the black pearl.

 According to the original pirates script writer, Stuart Beattie, Disney Studios appears to be ditching the star as they rework the entire franchise.

Speaking about his exit, Stuart said: “I think he’s had a great run. Obviously, he’s made that character his own and it’s become the character 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.”

The 55 years old actor, who has been firmed by personal dramas over the past four years, saw his last role as Jack Sparrow in Dead Men Tell No Tales, which became the lowest performing movie of the films.
