Daily Blind Item — Franchise Without Star


It’s one of the biggest franchises in the world and every single instalment has starred this A list actor in the main role, but we’re hearing that partnership is coming to a swift end.

‘Rebooting,’ says a source, ‘but without him and his big old paycheck.’

It’s going to be a tough job to replace the eponymous star, especially in another hollow reboot.

So, tell me, Gossipers:

What is our franchise?

Who is our actor?

  1. Pirates of the Caribbean. Disney finally cutting ties with the overpaid, overrated and overexposed Johnny Depp. Like they should have done in 2011.


  2. Could the Mission: Impossible series be dissociating from the unhinged and expensive Tom Cruise, dears? That would be a very interesting turn.


  3. I like dj’s idea of POTC. “Swift” is a type of sparrow, isn’t it? Also, maybe Iron Man – reboot and hollow makes me think of the Iron Man suit. And that would be as eponymous as the pirate in POTC.
