Johnny Depp Rejected Iconic John Hughes Movie Role

The Pirates of Caribbean actor Johnny Depp reportedly has something huge on its way. The deduction comes from the fact that the actor rejected the John Huges movie role. The iconic role was offered to Depp, 58 but he turned down the offer.

The popularity of Depp is unmatchable when it comes to any American actor. The popularity of Johnny Depp acquired through Pirates of the Caribbean 20 years ago is still alive. Netizens and his fans thought that his popularity will double by taking up the role in John Huges movie. But seems like Depp has something else lined up.

In the Disney film franchise, the American actor played the antihero Captain Jack Sparrow, and as a result, he became a household celebrity. The Breakfast Club, Planes, Trains, Automobiles, and Sixteen Candles, to mention a few.

These all were written and directed by Hughes. However, Depp was set to feature in one of the filmmaker’s films in 1986. Hughes’ original choice for the role of Ferris Bueller in the legendary 1986 film Ferris Bueller’s Day Off was reportedly Depp. The plot of the film revolved around the titular boy skipping school and having the time of his life.

Due to a busy schedule and time crunch, Depp, unfortunately, could not be a part of the film. Reports reveal that it was a huge offer where Johnny was offered a whopping amount. The movie was also a massive hit earning $70 million when the budget was only $5 million.

Although Depp turned down the movie he seemingly kept a check on the movie till it was released. After Depp was unable to accept the part of Ferris Bueller, Matthew Broderick was cast in the role.

His performance too earned him a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor in a Motion Picture in 1987. Depp appeared to concur, saying afterward that the actor did a “fantastic job” in the part. Depp’s ordeal did not, however, end in disaster.
