Despite all the scandals: Johnny Depp will play again in “Fantastic Beasts”, and Amber Heard in “Aquaman 2”

The consequences of the divorce of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard affected the reputation of both. Initially, Hurd accused her ex-husband of domestic violence and demanded an increase in compensation. Then it turned out that the evidence of Depp’s crimes was falsified, and it was his wife who was the real house tyrant. Amid incessant scandals, rumors have surfaced that both actors will lose their roles in upcoming films.

Deadline reports that it looks like Warner Bros. has no plans to end its collaboration with the cast. The trial of Heard’s libel against Depp was to take place from January 11 to 28, 2021. Deadline had at its disposal a statement that Depp filed a lawsuit. He asks to postpone the hearings until February.

“When the court set the current date for the trial, Depp knew that Warner Bros. planned to film Fantastic Beasts 3 in London well before January 11, 2021. The coronavirus pandemic has disrupted the studio’s plans, prompting repeated delays. Now that the situation in London has improved, the studio has set a filming schedule that contradicts the date of the trial. ”

Other documents cited by the portal say that Hurd is not opposed to holding a meeting and agreeing to postpone the date of the process. The postponement of the hearing to February will not affect her plans to star in Aquaman 2.

As follows from these documents, the events taking place in the life of Depp and Heard are clearly not enough for Warner Bros. to stop filming them in their films.
