On Stranger Tides is just one more in the long line of big budget Hollywood movies. Or is it?
Actually, it happens to be just another movie that Johnny Depp refused to appear in for anything short of $42,000,000.
He charges that amount because the movie can’t exist with out him.
Johnny’s the star of the show. Pirates of the Caribbean without Captain Jack Sparrow is like an ice cream sundae with no ice cream.
But if Johnny Depp didn’t act in movies — if he were a regular job-holding guy from Kentucky — nobody would care about him. Nobody would pay him.
