Johnny Depp was asked to resign from his role as Grindelwald in the upcoming movie Fantastic Beasts 3, but a new report claims he’ll still make his full salary.

THR reports that Warner Bros. “will be on the hook for Depp’s full salary, even though he only had shot one scene since production began on September 20 in London.”

Johnny‘s contract for the movie was a “pay-or-play” one that means he gets his full salary, whether the movie is made or not. ScreenRant says that he will make $10 million for the movie.

More details about Johnny‘s resignation from the project were also revealed in the report.

The third Fantastic Beasts movie has been moved from November 2021 to July 22, 2022 amid the news that Johnny Depp would be recast after he was forced to resign from the movie.

THR is now shedding light on what happened, and everything was “prompted by a U.K. judge dismissing Depp’s defamation claims,” which saw the UK newspaper The Sun calling Depp a “wife beater.” The site added that, “the judge’s ruling makes it a lot easier for news outlets to use similar depictions when referring to Depp’s stormy two-year marriage to actress Amber Heard, creating a PR headache for the studio.”

The studio allegedly wanted to wait until the trial’s decision was handed down before making their final call.

No word yet on who will play the role of Grindelwald in the third film at this time.

Sharon Osbourne is speaking out about Johnny Depp‘s situation and the legal battles he’s currently involved in following his split from ex-wife Amber Heard.

The 68-year-old television personality said on The Talk this week that she understands what Johnny went through as she had similar issues in her marriage to Ozzy Osbourne.

“It takes two to tango. And, I think they had a very vulnerable relationship. I think they’re both as bad as each other. She gave him as good as she got,” Sharon said about Johnny and Amber.

“I think that they were both drinking…it’s a volatile relationship. I had a relationship like that with my husband at one time. I would give him what he gave me. He’d shove me. I’d shove him back. And some people are like that,” Sharon added. “If there is enough love, you work through it with help. But there obviously wasn’t that love to keep them together. I understand why he did sue…whatever went on, only those two know.”

Johnny just dropped out of an upcoming movie, at the request of the studio, because of everything that’s going on with his legal battles right now.

Amber Heard‘s lawyer is reacting to the news that Amber‘s ex husband Johnny Depp lost his libel case in the UK.

If you don’t know, over the summer, the Pirates of the Caribbean actor brought his case against News Group Newspapers, publishers of The Sun, and executive editor Dan Wootton after he was called a “wife beater” in a 2018 article regarding ex Amber Heard‘s allegations. He lost the case, and Amber was responsible for testifying during the summer trial.

“For those of us present for the London High Court trial, this decision and Judgment are not a surprise,” Elaine Charlson Bredehoft said in a statement (via People). “Very soon, we will be presenting even more voluminous evidence in the U.S. We are committed to obtaining Justice for Amber Heard in the U.S. Court and defending Ms. Heard‘s Right to Free Speech.”

Johnny filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit in the US that will take place on May 3, 2021.
