Johnny Depp leaves ‘Fantastic Beasts’
Hollywood star Johnny Depp took to Instagram to reveal that he has been dropped from ‘Fantastic Beasts’ film. In a letter to his fans, the actor wrote that he has been asked to resign by Warner Bros from his role as Grindelwald in ‘Fantastic Beasts’. In his post, he also talked about the British Court’s judgement about defamation case he had filed against a newspaper.
He wrote, “In light of recent events, I would like to mate the following short statement.
Firstly, I’d like to thank everybody who has gifted me with their support and loyalty. I have been humbled and moved by your many messages of love And concern, particularly over the last few days. Secondly, I wish to let you know that I have been asked to resign by Warner Bros. from my role as Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts and I have respected and agreed to that request.
Finally, I wish to say this. The surreal judgement of the court in the U.K. will not change my fight to tell the truth and I confirm that I plan to appeal. Vy resolve remains strong and I intend to prove that the allegations against me are false. My life and career will not be defined by this moment in time.
Thank you for reading. ”
Meanwhile, recently, a British court has ruled against Hollywood actor Johnny Depp in his defamation case against a publication which labelled him as “Wife Beater”.
Depp’s legal team has expressed their shock over the court’s ruling. His lawyers described the ruling as “perverse as it is bewildering”, and said it would be ridiculous for him not to appeal.
