Hollywood star Johnny Depp has left the building, storming off the set of Pirates Of Caribbean: Dead Man Tell No Tales in the Gold Coast last night.
Depp is heading back to the United States to be with his new wife Amber Heard and the couple’s illegal alien dogs, Boo and Pistol. “He’s going back to the States on the first available private charter flight he can get on,” according to sources at the Gold Coast Bulletin.
He was originally planning to leave Australia with Heard and the dogs but was convinced by producers at Disney Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer Films to continue filming.
Depp and Heard have been in deep dog do-doo when they failed to declare their two Yorkshire terriers to Custom officials when they arrived in Brisbane on a private charter flight. The whole fiasco has been perfectly summed up by comedian John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight program:
His latest departure is just another set back for the fifth instalment of the Pirates film. Earlier this year, Depp suffered a hand injury which delayed filming for a month and almost 200 crew members were temporarily stood down. Tropical Cyclone Nathan also delayed production, as well as script disagreements. The original $250 million budget is now reportedly $70 million over budget.
