Johnny Depp has reportedly walked off the Pirates of the Caribbean set on the Gold Coast and is headed back to the US to be with his wife.
The actor is meant to be shooting scenes as the swashbuckling Captain Jack Sparrow in Queensland.
But he unexpectedly left the set on Wednesday night, with plans to return home on the next charter flight, the Gold Coast Bulletin reports.
Depp’s wife Amber Heard left Australia with the couple’s undeclared pet dogs last week after Yorkshire terriers Pistol and Boo were told to leave the country or be put down.
It’s another major setback for Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, which is already behind schedule after Depp suffered a hand injury and returned to the US to recover.
