The Show Time/ Pinkvilla
The judge ruled against Johnny Depp in the libel case against The Sun. It is now reported that it is impacting his upcoming movie Fantastic Beasts 3 and his role in Pirates Of The Caribbean Reboot.
Johnny Depp lost the libel case against The Sun earlier this week. The Hollywood actor had sued the British tabloid after he was deemed as a "wife beater" to Amber Heard. During the course of the hearing, several horrifying incidents came to light from Depp and Heard's side. Following the verdict, it was reported that the actor's career could take a beating. Now, it is reported that the case's details and verdicts are influencing his position in Fantastic Beasts 3.
Meanwhile, sources have informed We Got This Covered that Disney is also on a backfoot about Depp's involvement in the Pirates Of The Caribbean reboot. Apparently, the Mouse House is "no longer interested in bringing back" the actor. It is also reported that the two sides were in talks for a small role or a cameo for the franchise veteran. However, even those talks are off the table.
