Disney wants to return Johnny Depp to the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise, the Daily Mail reported.

The company plans to pay the actor a hefty sum of $301 million for his role as the Captain.

"Disney is prepping a deal for USD$301 million deal that will include a sizable donation to a charity of Depp's choice. The deal is reportedly for Johnny Depp to return as Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean 6 and a spin-off Disney Plus series about the early life of the Captain of The Black Pearl," a source familiar with the situation said.

The 59-year-old actor has starred in five pirate movies in the past 15 years. In 2018, he was removed from the franchise due to a lawsuit with ex-wife Amber Heard.
