Ross Gets Feet Wet with Studios and Depp Pockets: 20K? No. 30M? Yes.

The Walt Disney Studios just can’t churn out big news fast enough. Two major projects couldn’t have had more opposite developments within the past 24 hours.

First, it’s been reported that McG’s remake of ’20,000 Leagues Under the Sea’ has been shelved and all but abandoned.

Second, POTC4 has been on shaky ground since day 1 with Gore Verbinksi, Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom jumping ship long before Dick Cook’s exit, but now it’s being widely reported that Depp, who reportedly was strongly considering leaving the project as well in light of Cook’s departure, has conceded and accepted the role with a meager paycheck of $30M (with some reported figures even higher).
