Hollywood heartthrob Johnny Depp will pick up a staggering $56 million for starring in a fourth Pirates Of The Caribbean film. And it's the highest up-front pay-cheque in showbiz history.
Insiders claim the movie will have Captain Jack searching for the elixir of eternal youth. But it's unlikely that Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley will return to their roles.If the amount reported by the British tabloid is right, the sum would make Depp the highest paid movie star in Hollywood history. Yes, it's exorbitant, but we have no doubt the malleable thespian will earn every cent, giving audiences $56 million dollars' worth of boozy swashbuckling and sexually ambiguous repartee with his tentacle-faced love interest in the hotly anticipated Pirates of The Caribbean: Song of the Peg-Legged Parrot.
