  • Johnny Depp: Disney's $78 Million Man

    Hollywood Today reports that actor Johnny Depp, in his turn as Captain Jack Sparrow in Disney's Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Man's Chest, earned a staggering $78 million after base salary, back end payments and licensing royalties were added up from the blockbuster film.

    Arguably, this would make Depp the highest paid actor ever.

    Dead Man's Chest grossed over $1 billion worldwide at the box office and was the biggest selling DVD release of 2006.

    Depp's take from the first two Pirates films is estimated to be over $106 million. Hollywood Today reports that he'll make a minimum of $40 million for POTC: At World's End. They also suggest that Depp could be tapped to play Sparrow in as many as three more Pirates movies, especially if the box office returns from At World's End live up to expectations.

      This would put him in the Keanu Reeves 'Matrix' money realm. He reportedly made over $150 million from his participation deal for the last two films in that trilogy.

                  I think its worth it. He might be my favorite movie character ever.

                      If DMC made 1 billion, that makes a 7.8 % share...

                      That's fare... Just think... His agent gets $7.8 million of it...

                        A good chunk of that has to be the licensing fees. I remember when Michael Jordan was in the Looney Toons movie that the largest part of his paycheck was when they used his likeness for all the products. Good thinking on the part of talent to negotiate for something that really did grow out of their specific work on a film.
