This is just silly!
Apparently there's a clause in Johnny Depp's contract with Disney that forbids him from speaking to ABC and its affiliates about The Rum Diary as it may overshadow Pirates of the Caribbean.
LOL!! What!?! Srsly!?!
We knew Disney owned
the world a lot (including ABC), but we didn't know it meant this!
We're pretty sure comparing Rum Diary to Pirates is comparing apples to oranges. Sure, they both have rum in them and the ocean but that the stories and characters are completely different. And we don't ever see Johnny doing anything remotely like Pirates since Captain Jack Sparrow is so close to his heart.
Oooh, Diz, you so silleh!
