As the title says, a new image of Johnny as W. Eugene Smith behind the scenes of Minamata has been posted by photographer Greg Williams on his official Instagram account. The caption of the photo said:

#johnnydepp having wrapped for the day on the film #minamata in #montenegro where he plays the greatest photo essayist of all time (in my humble opinion) #WEugeneSmith while documenting the mercury poisoning of the Japanese city in the 70s
Wonderful Eugene Smith
Having finished the day shooting a scene in an outdoor bath he was driven home in a dressing gown to keep him dry and warm, see the water drops still in his face
Shot in the back of a car and lit with the shitty L.E.D. light you get above a car door, impossibly slow shutter speed, his prosthetic beard still on

We added the photo of Johnny to our photo gallery. Enjoy!

Unfortunately, the rumors have been confirmed: Johnny Depp will not return as Captain Jack Sparrow in the coming Pirates of the Caribbean movies.

Johnny’s tenure as Captain Jack Sparrow has officially come to an end, following a Disney executive’s confirmation that the actor will no longer be a part of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.

The studio’s production chief, Sean Bailey, was speaking about the previously announced reboot – set to be written by Deadpool‘s Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese – when he was asked whether the series could survive without Johnny.

Rather than deny the reports, Bailey told The Hollywood Reporter:

“We want to bring in a new energy and vitality. I love the [Pirates] movies, but part of the reason Paul and Rhett are so interesting is that we want to give it a kick in the pants. And that’s what I’ve tasked them with.”

Johnny confirmed he will be back as Gellert Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts 3.

As the title reveals, Johnny has just confirmed that he will reprise his villainous role as Gellert Grindelwald in the third instalment of the Fantastic Beasts film series.

As you probably already know (and can’t await!) the second film, The Crimes of Grindelwald, will be released on November 16, but producers are clearly already looking ahead to the next film in J.K. Rowling’s latest wizarding movie series. Johnny confirmed his involvement in the as-yet-untitled third film in a new interview, telling Collider that he and his fellow castmates will begin production on Fantastic Beasts 3 ‘in the middle of next year’. The actor said he relished the challenge of playing a villain in a fictional realm where ‘the possibilities… are wide open, so you can really try anything.’

For the first time, Johnny speaks out on his casting of Grindelwald and defends J.K. Rowling.

After being criticized for the casting of Gellert Grindelwald in the upcoming Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald movie, Johnny finally spoke out to Entertainment Weekly. A few months ago, the creator of the Harry Potter universe herself, J.K. Rowling had defended Johnny’s casting as Grindeldwald, and just now it had been Johnny’s turn to defend J.K. Rowling’s comments about his casting.

J.K. had had justified Johnny’s inclusion in the film following allegations of physical abuse made by Johnny’s ex-wife Amber Heard. She issued a statement in December 2017 saying: “The film-makers and I are not only comfortable sticking with our original casting, but [are] genuinely happy to have Johnny playing a major character in the movies.”

In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly to promote the film, Johnny said:

“I’ll be honest … I felt bad for J.K. having to field all these various feelings from people out there … But ultimately, there is real controversy. The fact remains I was falsely accused … J.K. has seen the evidence and therefore knows I was falsely accused, and that’s why she has publicly supported me.”

I finally uploaded the latest two posters showing Johnny as Gellert Grindelwald in the upcoming Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald movie, which hits theaters November 16. Until then, enjoy the promotional features that are revealed by Warner Bros. in the meantime.
