The rum might be gone, but the possibility of Johnny Depp reuniting with Disney is not.

The “Pirates of the Caribbean” star, 60, is open to the idea of working with the House of Mouse again, despite feeling like the entertainment giant previously left him in the dust amid his nasty battle with ex-wife Amber Heard, a source close to Depp told People.

“Anything is possible,” they told the outlet, not naming the “Pirates” franchise in particular. “If it’s the right project, he’ll do it.”

Last month, the company was reported by The New York Times to be “seemingly inching the door open” to once again working with the face of the “Pirates” films.

Depp originated the role of Captain Jack Sparrow with 2003′s “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl,” and reprised the part in four more films.

This time last year, Depp was riding high after winning his defamation trial against Heard, which captivated the internet for weeks and centered on claims that upended both of their careers.

The three-time Oscar nominated actor sued the “Aquaman” star, 37, for $50 million over a 2018 Washington Post op-ed in which she referred to herself as a “public figure representing domestic abuse.” Even though Depp wasn’t explicitly named in the piece, he and his camp claimed it led to tens of millions of dollars in lost work, including a $22.5 million payday for “Pirates 6.”

Heard then countersued for $100 million, in response to the actor’s former lawyer slamming her claims as a hoax. She was ultimately awarded $2 million.

Depp was awarded $10 million in compensatory damages and $5 million in punitive damages, which were capped by Virginia, where the trial was held.

The former spouses settled their appeals in December, after which Heard paid $1 million to her ex.
