Johnny Depp recently announced that at the request of Warner Bros. will not be filming in the third part of “Fantastic Beasts”. The Hollywood Reporter has shed some light on what is happening behind the scenes of this situation, without touching on the trial.
It turns out that Depp managed to participate in only one scene of the film, but he will still receive a full fee. This implies his contract – full payment, even if the film never comes out, even if the actor is replaced. In fact, Depp was asked to “resign”, not fired.
We are talking about several million dollars.
Warner Bros. decided to abandon the actor after he lost the trial with the newspaper The Sun. Depp intends to appeal and prove his innocence.
Recently, the premiere date of the third Fantastic Beasts was changed to July 15, 2022, instead of November 2021.
