'There is just too much potential box-office treasure for a beloved character deeply embedded in the Disney culture.'  The former Disney insider predicted that after the huge success of Paramount Pictures' 'Top Gun: Maverick,' Disney would be looking to bring back their own beloved franchise. 'There is [a] huge appetite for bringing back bankable Hollywood stars in massively popular franchises,' the executive told People.  Despite the insider's confidence that Disney could bring back the franchise, he's not too sure the actor would be up for it.  A former Disney executive believes Johnny Depp (left, in character, with Orlando Bloom...

    Johnny Depp returned to the stand on Wednesday morning in the ongoing defamation case between the actor and his ex-wife, Amber Heard. In new testimony preceded by a lengthy, animated bench conference out of earshot between lawyers for both parties and Judge Penney Azcarate, Depp was asked about his drug use, his role in helping Heard land a role in Aquaman, and what happened between him and his wife in a violent encounter in Australia that left him with a severed fingertip. This is a developing story and will be updated.
    Amber Heard testified that she fought 'really hard' to stay in the Aquaman sequel when scenes from the movie were axed and 'communication stopped' with the producers after Johnny Depp's team depicted her abuse allegations as a 'hoax'. The actress, 36, said she has been labelled a 'liar' during the $100 million defamation trial because Depp, 58, is the 'bigger star' and had 'more publicity reach'. Heard told the courtroom in Virginia that the 'sophisticated PR machine' behind Depp had worked to label her as a liar in the media - which has impacted her career. Her testimony was supported by her talent agent, Jessica Kovacevic, who on Thursday claimed the actress's rise to fame was diminished due to the allegations made by Depp's attorney claiming she faked her injuries. Kovacevic claimed Heard was set to earn $2 million for Aquaman 2, but Warner Bros. decided to diminish her role, citing a 'lack of chemistry' between Heard and Aquaman star Jason Momoa.  Kovacevic said its unlikely for a star involved in a movie as successful as Aquaman to not have...

    During Johnny Depp’s first day testimony in his defamation trial against Amber Heard, the veteran actor spoke in a slow, halting way, inflected with a vague British accent and a powerful and even convincing sense of vulnerability. To a legal expert, the disgraced, 58-year-old star came across Tuesday as “being pretty blunt and truthful” about his abusive childhood, struggles with drug abuse and desire for “the truth.” Certainly, Depp’s soft-spoken delivery and deferential demeanor worked to draw people in “100%” to everything he said, whether they were the jury in the Virginia courtroom or watching the trial live on their phones and TV screens, said Holly Davis, an Austin, Texas-based attorney who has expertise in high-profile divorce cases. Davis said that Depp’s attorneys, through direct examination, “are helping him paint a story about a turbulent childhood” created by his unstable mother, Betty Sue Depp, whom the actor described as “quite violent” and “quite cruel.” Depp also presented himself as a loving father, who was determined to raise his two now-adult children with ex-partner Vanessa Paradis “in the exact opposite of...
    Mads Mikkelsen has opened up about replacing Johnny Depp in the Fantastic Beasts films, calling the process “chaotic.” Mikkelsen took over the role of Gellert Grindelwald as Depp was ousted in 2020 after the British High Court ruled against him after he sued The Sun newspaper for defamation. The court ultimately determined that The Sun’s claim Depp was a “wife-beater” was “substantially true.” “It was quite chaotic,” Mikkelsen said of the replacement process while speaking to the Hollywood Reporter’s James Hibberd. The actor explained that he had to watch the first two films and read the script for the third installment, Secrets of Dumbledore, after he was cast. “You don’t want to copy anything [Depp was] doing — that would be creative suicide,” he said. Even if [a role has] been done to perfection, you want to make it your own. But you still have to build some sort of bridge between what came before.” Mikkelsen also shared that the franchise’s decision not to address the switch was “very deliberate,” adding, “Everybody knows why [the actors changed]. The entire world knows why.” “It would almost be like an Easter...
    The explosive failure of Johnny Depp’s 2020 libel case against The Sun appears to have ground his work in Hollywood to a halt—but abroad, his career is doing just fine. The Fantastic Beasts actor, whose alleged domestic violence against his ex-wife Amber Heard made headlines for weeks last year during the Sun libel trial, is now set to play King Louis XV in French actress and filmmaker Maïwenn’s next production. According to Variety, the director herself will also star as the monarch’s final mistress. Louis XV ruled from 1715 to 1774 and, though his reign outlasted every monarch but the “Sun King” Louis XIV, he was nonetheless seen as an ineffectual ruler. His time on the throne and ultimate unpopularity helped set the stage for the French Revolution, which began in 1787. The title and plot of Maïwenn’s production remain a mystery, but Variety reports that filming will take place for three months in France, where Versailles will naturally provide much of the backdrop. Depp has not starred in an American feature since 2020, when he played war photographer...

Climbs to 6-Month High; More States Hit Highs: Virus Update 12 fast-food releases customers loved in 2020 Heres who should replace Johnny Depp as Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts With Johnny Depp being forced out of the Fantastic Beasts franchise, it raises a big question: Who will replace the actor as the sinister Gellert Grindelwald? © Jaap Buitendijk/Warner Bros. Johnny Depp being forced out of the 'Fantastic Beasts' franchise raises the question of who should replace him as Gellert Grindelwald. Here are EW's top choices. Warner Bros. is looking to cast a new actor in the pivotal role, and is probably looking to move quickly given that the third film in the series is already in production in the U.K. Depp's own suggestions helped physically design his version of Grindelwald: a deathly pale specter with spiky, platinum blond hair, a modest mustache, and one odd "scary eye." Thankfully for the franchise's producers, this is the Wizarding World, so it wouldn't be too hard to justify changing the character's appearance for another actor. While the production arguably wouldn't even need...
