Zac Efron has reportedly signed a $10 million deal to star alongside Johnny Depp in the upcoming fourth installment of Pirates of the Caribbean. According to the National Enquirer, executives at Disney first approached Zac about accepting a small role last year after it appeared that Johnny would not agree to film a fourth Pirates film.
However, now that Depp will reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow, Disney wants to groom Zac as his successor. This way, the studio will always have Zac on standby in case Depp decides he does not want to continue with the franchise. Do YOU think Zefron belongs in the new Pirates?
