An Admirers' Site Dedicated to Johnny Depp and His Work
Welcome to Johnny Depp Network, an admirers' site dedicated to Johnny Depp and his work and certain to be the biggest archive regarding Johnny Depp with detailed info about Johnny himself and his movies, news and article archives, over 83,000 (no Paparazzi) pics, downloads, movie scripts, goodies like avatars and wallpapers, quotes, and a discussion forum, always respecting Johnny's privacy.
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.

I’m sure some of you may have come across the name “Chick Purchase” already and are wrinkling their brows while reading this. Those familiar with Johnny’s filmography, especially his most recent movie projects, have probably already connected the name to one of Johnny’s latest projects: London Fields.
We are more than glad to tell you that the official marketing team has reached out to Johnny Depp Network to provide us, and therefore also YOU, with the first exclusive look of Johnny as Chick Purchase in London Fields (also starring Amber Heard, Jim Sturgess, Theo James, Jaimie Alexander and more). So, I hope you’re as excited as we were when we had our first glance at the official production stills of Johnny as Chick. For now, we’re sharing with you two movie stills showing Johnny. We’ve been provided with four more which we’re more than happy to show you in the course of time, so stay tuned. Also, make sure to check back for more information on Johnny’s character soon.
For those of you who haven’t heard of London Fields and what it’s about:
London Fields tells the story of clairvoyant femme fatale, Nicola Six, who has been living with a dark premonition of her impending death by murder. She begins a tangled love affair with three uniquely different men: one of whom she knows will be her murderer.
The movie hits theaters on October 26. For more information and the official trailer, make sure to visit the official website. A huge thank you to John from the official marketing team for providing us with the first sneak peek of Johnny as Chick.
The final official trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald has been released.
I really suggest you simply go and see it for yourselves. The final trailer easily the darkest one yet and actually contains a couple big surprises. The headline coming out of this is that Claudia Kim’s character has been revealed and it’s a major name in the Harry Potter universe. The South Korean actress is playing Nagini — a human “Maledictus” who eventually becomes Lord Voldemort’s trusty snake. As we meet Nagini, she’s a member of the traveling Circus Arcanus where she puts on a very convincing transformation act for muggles. Check out EW’s exclusive new interview with Kim talking about her character here.
Another reveal: We see a glimpse of a flashback showing Dumbledore and Grindelwald back while they were students. That’s right, we now will have an even younger Dumbledore! It’s a brief shot in the trailer as they both touch the Mirror of Erised.
The trailer is also stuffed with magical action as an ensemble of characters prepare to contend with the dark wizard Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) following his escape from prison while being transferred to Europe. Grindelwald begins to gather followers using both seductive logic and menacing force.
Just ahead of the release of the final trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald TODAY, a batch of nine new character posters has been released for the upcoming film on Twitter by the movie’s official UK account. Each poster features a profile shot of the movie’s characters with text that notes something of interest about the characters. Of course, one of Johnny as Gellert Grindelwald was among them, describing him as “Dark Wizard at Large“.
We added the poster in high quality to our photo gallery. Enjoy and stay tuned for more to come. Especially the trailer.

A new featurette for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald takes the Potterheads back to Hogwarts, school of witchcraft and wizardry.
Unforunately, the featurette does not contain any new scenes of Johnny as Gellert Grindelwald but I wanted to share the video anyways since I know that many of you are excited about the movie itself.
“I felt quite sentimental going back to Hogwarts,” author and Fantastic Beasts screenwriter J.K. Rowling admits in the featurette.
“Those names, the stories, the histories that sit in the back of our minds from the Potter series begin to weave their way into Beasts,” Fantastic Beasts star Eddie Redmayne muses in the featurette for the second film in the Harry Potter prequel series.
But of course, this Hogwarts is not the one we grew to love over eight Harry Potter movies, with Fantastic Beasts taking place 70 years earlier. This is Hogwarts in the 1920s, and… it doesn’t look all too different. Other than the clothes by the teaching staff, the bright-eyed students in their Hogwarts robes all look oh-so familiar.
Hogwarts will probably be the one comforting feature of The Crimes of Grindelwald, which escalates the war that the titular dark wizard (Johnny Depp) is waging against the wizarding community. The second Fantastic Beasts film is set to be darker and more grim than the last — but at least Hogwarts remains untouched, for now.
Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald marks the most anticipated fall 2018 movie.
Fall is almost upon us, which means crisp cool days, trees alive with color, and a new slate of movies. Before every season, Fandango asks theater-goers which films they’re most anticipating, and the fall 2018 lists are out. Several genre movies cracked the top five, but the top dog is Harry Potter prequel Fantastic Beasts 2: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

1. Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (November 16) 2. Bohemian Rhapsody (November 2) 3. Venom (October 5) 4. Ralph Breaks the Internet (November 21) 5. A Star is Born (October 5)
Fantastic Beasts also tops the list of Most Anticipated Fall Family Films.
Sadly, one of Johnny’s movie projects, the upcoming Notorious B.I.G. film City of Lies,” has been pulled has been pulled by Global Road Entertainment a month before it was slated to hit theaters.
The movie was scheduled to be released September 7, 2018 but is now undated, a spokesman for the distributor said Monday. The feature is based on the book “LAbyrinth,” which tells the story of the police investigation into the deaths of rappers Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls.
Last month Johnny was sued by a location manager involved in the production who said the actor punched him. Those of you who know me, know that I do not give much about rumors, but I wanted to let you know that it is claimed, that this has got something to do with the movie’s probably delayed release.
Attention, little pirates. At the moment, rumors are making the rounds that Pirates 6 is officially in the works.
As the title says, it seems that Pirates of the Caribbean 6 may be officially moving forward — at the least that’s the latest rumor circling Disney’s popular swashbuckling adventure series, even as other rumors swirl about whether or not franchise star Johnny Depp will be returning.
Geeks World Wide dropped a report stating that Pirates of the Caribbean 6 is gearing up for pre-production, with Joachim Rønning expected to reprise his directing duties after the previous installment, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales. It’s also reported that the script is being worked out by Ted Elliot, Terry Rossio and Jeff Nathanson, and that Nigel Phelps will be returning for production design.
The life of billionaire Matthew Mellon is considered to be made into a movie and Johnny is said to be interested to participate.
Matthew Mellon led a fast-paced life of privilege before his unexpected death in April at age 54, and now actor Johnny Depp is reportedly considering playing the banking heir in a potential film about his life.
The New York Post reports that Mellon’s family is “divided over the project,” which is in early stages as “a screenplay being shopped.” One source told the Post that if the film comes to fruition it could fulfill a dream of Matthew’s: “He would have loved this idea … He used to say, ‘How cool would it be to have a movie about my crazy life?'”
Mellon descended from the Mellon and Drexel families of Bank of New York Mellon and Drexel Burnham Lambert and reportedly came into trusts worth $25 million when he was just 21 years old. After graduating from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, he worked in fashion, telecommunications, and finance, most recently as global ambassador for the digital currency company Ripple Labs.
Cryptocurrency is how he turned his millions into a fortune that’s been valued at more than $1 billion, thanks in part to a savvy early investment in Bitcoin recommended to him by the Winklevoss twins, Cameron and Tyler. He was also married twice—first to Jimmy Choo co-founder Tamara Mellon and then to designer Nicole Hanley Mellon until mid-2015.
