Fans have had a mixed reaction to Johnny Depp not being a part of the “Pirates” reboot, and now according to a new report, the move away from Depp couldn’t have been fueled by cash.
According to Forbes, the decision to move on with the “Pirates” reboot with Depp will save Disney $90 million in production costs. Depp’s Hollywood reputation, divorce, and series of movie flops have made some movie companies avoid the star and Disney seems to be following suit.
