“All the other details are being kept under lock and key. The whole project is shrouded in secrecy and Disney want to keep everything under wraps as best they can," the report added.

However, insiders tell RadarOnline.com that the actor and Disney have no deal in place at the moment.

The report came after Margot Robbie revealed her planned Pirates spin-off with producer Jerry Bruckheimer had been scrapped.

"We had an idea and we were developing it for a while, ages ago, to have more of a female-led — not totally female-led, but just kind of a different story — which we thought would've been really cool," Robbie told Vanity Fair. "But I guess they don't want to do it."

During Depp's time as Jack, Disney racked in over $2 billion from various films. His first Pirates film was released in 2003.

Depp's career has been on an upswing after he defeated his ex Amber Heard in court. He recently appeared at the MTV Movie Awards and was featured in Rihanna's Savage X Fenty fashion show.
