Pirates of the Caribbean Sequel Delayed Following Johnny Depp's Hand Surgery
Production will resume April 15, a month after receiving a pin in his finger back in the States
Batten down the hatches, Pirates of the Caribbean fans: The Disney franchise’s latest installment is on hold due to star Johnny Depp‘s ongoing injury.
Depp, 51, hurt his hand weeks ago, though he wasn’t filming at the time.
The newlywed flew back to the United States on March 10 for surgery, and a source tells PEOPLE he had a pin put in his finger.
Back in February, Tropical Cyclone Nathan delayed shooting, which made us wonder: Could the flick be suffering from the Curse of the Black Pearl chronicled in the first Pirates?
