Warner Bros. doesn’t want to work with Johnny Depp
After Johnny Depp lost a defamation trial for beating his ex-wife, Warner Bros. does not want to cooperate with him anymore. In particular, the producers made the decision to shoot Fantastic Beasts 3 without his participation.
Johnny Depp was widely believed to face career repercussions after losing a high-profile London lawsuit, but few expected the hammer to fall so quickly. Warner Bros. asked Depp to leave the project “Fantastic Beasts – 3” in just a few days.
This is an especially hard blow for the actor, given that both the studio and Harry Potter creator J. Rowling have previously supported him and protected him from criticism. Now that a British judge has found Amber Heard’s claims credible, his participation in the film has become impossible. Warner Bros. in a brief statement, confirms that Depp is leaving the franchise and the studio is looking for a new Grindelwald.
