Johnny Depp injured his hand last weekend in Australia, where he’s been working on Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, according to TheWrap. Depp was reportedly not on set during the incident; he’s being flown back to the U.S. immediately for surgery. Specific details about what happened are unavailable at the moment, but Variety adds that despite the drama, the production schedule for the film should remain mostly uninterrupted (the release date is still July 7, 2017), if slightly impacted. The team is filming scenes sans Jack Sparrow while Depp is recovering. Get well soon, Johnny — a world with a maimed Sparrow/Hollywood Vampire is a little too dark and shadowy for our tastes.
