Production also faced a hurdle last year when filming was reportedly shut down for several weeks in Australia after Johnny flew to the United States to undergo hand surgery.
The latest Pirates movie also comes after Johnny faced front-page headlines for his divorce to Amber Heard. With the case now settled, some in Hollywood think the actor will still be able to succeed on the big screen.
"I think Johnny has spent a very long time building his career, and a lot of people came to his defense when this happened, so I really don't think, moving forward, this is going to hurt him," The Hollywood Reporter staffer Ashley Cullins shared with E! News. "He has an H.G. Wells project that he's working on The Invisible Man, he's voicing a character in the Gnomeo and Juliet sequel, both of these things he'll be working on for the next couple of years, and by then, I don't think anybody's going to be talking about his nasty divorce with Amber Heard."
She continued, "I haven't heard anyone say that they're not going to work with either of them over this. So, both Johnny and Amber seemed to have dodged any negative career ramifications so far."
The newest Pirates of the Caribbean movie is scheduled to hit theaters on May 26, 2017.
