‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ is in UK cinemas this week but while fans generally seem to be on board with the film, opinion remains over one of its newest additions. It’s been confirmed that Depp will have a bigger part to play in the sequel (and possibly beyond) but after his very public marital exploits with Amber Heard and the accusations that he is domestically abusive, opinion on the actor is now split. The film’s producer David Heyman is delighted with Depp’s addition to the extended universe, as is ‘Harry Potter’ and ‘Fantastic Beasts’ screenwriter J.K. Rowling.
‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ is coming to cinemas this month and already there’s plenty of talk surrounding its sequel. This month’s Empire is dedicated to the J.K. Rowling-written movie and reveals some interesting detailed about what fans could see in the second film. “What we do know is that the already-underway sequel will travel to Paris,” it states.
It was in 1991 that Gene Wilder turned in his badge and quit the big screen, his final movie being ‘Another You’ with long-time collaborator Richard Pryor, sadly a critical and box office failure. Speaking to Robert Osbourne on TCM, he explained that it was the lack of quality roles which were coming his way, not to mention their more modern sensibilities.
Both Johnny Depp and Amber Heard are likely breathing a sigh of relief that their private lives will not continue to be dragged through the courts and newspapers thanks to settling on a sum for their divorce.While something of a sting, the $7 million (just over £5 million) he will hand over to Ms Heard shouldn’t dent the war chest he’s likely amassed over 30 years in the movie business. But compared to some, he’s got away incredibly lightly…Image credits: Rex Features
Johnny Depp was a ‘nightmare’ to work with on the set of the latest ‘Pirates of the Caribbean ‘movie, it’s been claimed. Jackie ‘O’ Henderson, DJ on leading Australian breakfast radio show ‘The Kyle and Jackie O Show’, has said that she was told by crew-members on the movie, which was shot on the Gold Coast, were frequently left waiting for Depp to show up on set. It’s said that the causes of the issues were down to his deteriorating relationship with his now-estranged wife Amber Heard.
Actress Amber Heard has refuted claims she is blackmailing soon-to-be ex husband Johnny Depp, after making claims that the ‘Pirates of the Carribbean’ star emotionally and physically abused her. The denial from Heard, via her lawyers, was made following a guest column published on The Wrap written by Depp’s friend, comedian Doug Stanhope, which claimed the actress was “threatening to lie about him publicly”.
‘Alice Through The Looking Glass’ is bombing at the box office, following a disastrous opening weekend in the US. The movie was expected to make in excess of $55 million (£37.6 million), and did even worse than 'Tomorrowland’, which also flopped last year over the four-day Memorial Day weekend holiday – it made $42 million (£28 million) for Disney and barely made back its production budget. Reviews of the movie, directed by James Bobin, have been pretty disastrous too, its star-studded cast including Johnny Depp, Mia Wasikowska, Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen not managing to pull the film’s plot together.

Australian deputy prime minister Barnaby Joyce has responded after Johnny Depp joked that the ruddy-faced politician looked like he’d been ‘inbred with a tomato’ on Jimmy Kimmel. Joyce was the driving force behind the near-prosecution of Depp and his wife Amber Heard after they took their Yorkshire terriers Pistol and Boo into Australia without the correct documents, while the star was filming the latest 'Pirates of the Caribbean’ movie.
Johnny Depp had better prepare for the full body search next time he heads to Australia. The ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star mocked the much-derided public apology he made after his wife Amber Heard was cleared of smuggling the couple’s dogs Pistol and Boo into the country last year. While sitting on a throne during a press conference for new movie 'Alice Through The Looking Glass’ in London, he said: “I’m going to do this everywhere I go.
The agriculture minister who threatened to euthanase Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s Yorkshire terriers has offered his critique on the pair’s apology video. Barnaby Joyce, now Australia’s deputy prime minister, said that the performance – which has gone viral – needed ‘more gusto’, adding that Depp would be unlikely to win an Academy Award for it.
Johnny Depp and Amber Heard have appeared in a video publicly apologising for bringing their dogs into Australia illegally. In a video posted by the Australian Government Department of Agriculture and Water Resources, Depp and Heard appear contrite about flying their Yorkshire terriers Pistol and Boo into the country without the proper consideration for its strict quarantine laws. “Australia is a wonderful island, a treasure trove of unique plants, animals and people,” says Heard.
The king of it, of course, was Peter Jackson, who made it an art-from in his early filmmaking days in New Zealand. The film, about a heavy metal band who accidentally summons an ancient evil force, is packed with more gore, guts and DIY tools to the face than you could shake an eviscerated intestine at. Considering most of his career choices of late, Johnny Depp might occasionally wish his bed would swallow him up.
The scariest movie out this weekend isn’t The Witch, it’s Donald Trump tearing off his face to reveal that he’s actually Oscar-nominated actor and global superstar Johnny Depp. An absurdist adaptation of Trump’s 1987 book The Art of the Deal, the film skewered his early business dealings and self-mythologizing, with Depp providing a scarily accurate impression of the now-69-year-old. According to Joe Randazzo, the film’s writer, Depp spent hours in the makeup chair each shooting day, getting into the character by getting into his face.
Joe Randazzo has been one of America’s leading satirists for the last decade, as the editor of The Onion and then working with Adult Swim. His name has been gold with comedy nerds in the know, and this week, Randazzo got a huge boost of public recognition with perhaps his biggest and most high-profile project yet: Funny or Die’s scathing and absurd “adaptation” of Donald Trump’s 1987 business book/memoir, The Art of the Deal.
The ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ stars in the 50-minute spoof called ‘Donald Trump’s The Art Of The Deal: The Movie’ playing the businessman as a hugely deluded ego maniac, and it’s probably Depp’s best performance in years. Director Ron Howard introduces the sketch as a recently unearthed film “thought to be lost in the Cybill Shephard blouse fire of 1989″, that was written, directed, and starred in by Donald Trump, hence the grainy 1980s look of the video. It shows the New York magnate explaining the complexities of a property deal to a young boy who finds himself in Trump’s office while he tries to buy a casino, and it features a number of hilarious cameos from Henry Winkler, Alfred Molina, and Patton Oswalt, but Depp is the real star of the show.
Kevin Smith has had to ask Johnny Depp and his ex-wife for parental consent sign-offs a couple times now. It happened first during the 2014 production of the director’s first foray into horror filmmaking, the certifiably weird shockfest Tusk, about a lunatic who turns a podcaster into his own pet walrus. Smith’s daughter, Harley Quinn, and Depp’s daughter, Lily-Rose, have been best friends since they met in kindergarten at 5.
Johnny Depp’s creation of Captain Jack Sparrow for the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ was, shall we say, unexpected in its style. In a chat in front of an audience at the American Film Institute on Sunday night, Depp has discussed how it went down with Disney, the studio behind the behemoth of a franchise. As he’s said in previous interviews, he feared that his outlandish, slurring, Keith Richards-esque interpretation of the character was going to get him fired from the set of the first movie.
