Johnny Depp found humor in a question posed during a Disney executive’s testimony during the ongoing defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard.

In a recording presented to the court on Thursday (May 19), Tina Newman – who works on But the pirate of the Caribbean franchise – was questioned about Depp’s future in a potential sixth film.

“Do you know if Mr. Depp is being considered for a role in Pirates 6?Heard’s lawyer asked.

Newman replied, “I don’t know one way or another,” adding that “the decision is not my job responsibility. It is higher than my salary”.

The lawyer continued: “Did Disney know that Mr. Depp had sworn that he would not do it But the pirate of the Caribbean franchise roles with $300 million and a million alpacas? ”

Again, Newman replied, “No.”

When pressed further if Disney entertainment “pays Mr. Depp over $300 million and [providing] him with over a million alpacas so he can get his services for any future But the pirate of the Caribbean role”, the executive replied: “No. ”

Depp and his attorney Camille Vasquez can be seen laughing together after the question.

Depp is suing Heard for $50m (£38.2m). He alleges that Heard implied he abused her in a 2018 Washington Post article about domestic violence.

Heard is protesting $100m (£80.9m), accusing Depp of orchestrating a “smear campaign” against her and describing his lawsuit as a continuation of “abuse and harassment”. tangled”.
