Johnny Depp chooses dignity over money as he refuses multi-million dollars deal

Johnny Depp denies he has been in talks to make ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ comeback

A source this week told Poptopic he had been in talks with Disney  about a $301m deal after he won his six-week defamation trial against  Heard.

But a representative of the actor, 59, dismissed the rumour on Tuesday, declaring: “This is made up.”

They added: “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.

The source said Disney was also offering a “sizeable donation” to a charity of Depp’s choice as a sweetener.

Depp previously declared he would not work with Disney again after he  was ditched from the sixth Pirates movie, saying he felt he was “guilty  until proven innocent” with the company’s bosses.
