The sensational scandal involving Johnny Depp affected his career. Johnny Depp has lost a libel suit against several British publications The Sun and News Group, where he is called the “wife killer.” A London court has proven 12 out of 14 episodes of an attack on ex-wife Amber Heard. At the initiative of the Warner Brothers studio, the contract with the actor was terminated. Another actor will take on his role as the villain in the Fantastic Beasts project.
British actor Jude Law, who played Albus, supports Warner Bros. about Depp’s dismissal, noting that the actor is only part of the team, and the final word in the decision of the team’s composition remains with the production studio.
After the news of Johnny’s exclusion from the project as a replacement for the role of Gellert Grindelwald, Warner Bros. is considering many famous actors, Mads Mikkelsen is being considered as a replacement. The final information on the choice of the actor for the main role of the antagonist will be known closer to the release of the third part, the release date of which is scheduled for July 2022.
“Fantastic Beasts” is a spin-off of the Harry Potter films. The picture tells about the events that took place 65 years before the history of the saga itself. In the center of events is the wizard Newt Scamander, who wrote a magic textbook, according to which the students of Horvarts will study in the future.
Newt Scamander is the owner of a magical suitcase that serves as a guide to the world of fantastic animals. By chance, the suitcase lock independently begins to release animals collected from all over the planet onto the streets of the city. The hunt for the wizard begins, who, in turn, hunts for fantastic creatures.
Fantastic Beasts was written by the writer J.K. Rowling herself.
All fantastic creatures are created similar to real animals: echidnas, sloths, tigers and other individuals.
It was originally planned that the picture will be in two parts, but the authors have extended the project for another film.
The world premiere of the adventure film took place in 2016. The release date of Fantastic Beasts 3 is scheduled for summer 2022. Time and circumstances will tell whether Johnny Dapp has the slightest chance of returning to Fantastic Beasts.
