While nothing is official, the rumors are heating up and details emerging over the next Pirates of the Caribbean film, likely being delayed.

There have been reports that the reason for the actor’s behavior is due to his “deteriorating relationship” with his now ex-wife, Amber Heard.

The celebrity couple had been fighting a lot which is causing the Pirates of the Caribbean 5 star to come in late. It was reported that it came to a point where Depp would no longer show up for work due to his marital dispute with Heard.

“The remarks came as part of a discussion about recent headlines which allege that Depp cut the end of his finger off in a rage, while high on alcohol and ecstasy. It’s also alleged that he then dipped the wounded digit in blue paint and daubed a message on a mirror, accusing 30-year-old actress Heard of having an affair with Billy Bob Thornton.”

The movie’s production was reported to have been put on hold for four weeks as Depp had to fly back to the United States to undergo surgery after acquiring a hand injury during filming, but it was never confirmed how Depp sustained the injury.

Rumor has it that he was injured in a go-karting accident at Aussie MotoGP star Mick Doohan’s house.

Disney has offered no real promotion for the film set to open next summer.

Few details have been confirmed, but Jack Sparrow (Depp) somehow possesses Poseidon’s trident and his hunted by Capt. Salazar, played by Javier Bardem.

Directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg are helming the adventure will also feature the return of Orlando Bloom’s Will Turner, Geoffrey Rush (Barbossa), Kevin McNally as Gibbs, Stephen Graham, David Wenham, Martin Klebba with newcomers Brenton Thwaites, Kaya Scodelario and Mahesh Jadu.

Pirates of the Caribbean 5 release date is slated to premiere on May 26, 2017

    This news is false. Pirates 5 already finished filming.

    • Nevets says:

      The word is that Disney is likely going to delay Pirates to give the fans some space between Depp’s drama, divorce and otherwise
