Will Johnny Depp Act Again? A look At Actor’s Scheduled Films As He Returns To The Stand In Amber Heard Trial

Johnny Depp: Captain Jack Sparrow

Johnny Depp is set to take the stand in his ongoing defamation trial against ex-wife Amber Heard.

Depp is suing Heard for $50m (£38.2m). He alleges that Heard implied that he abused her in a 2018 Washington Post op-ed about domestic violence.

The article does not mention him by name.

Heard is countersuing for $100m (£80.9m), accusing Depp of orchestrating a “smear campaign” against her and describing his lawsuit as a continuation of “abuse and harassment”.

Throughout the case, Depp and his legal representatives have referred to the actor’s career being negatively impacted as a result of the claims.

Last month, talent agent Christian Carino testified that he believes Heard’s allegations of abuse cost Depp the job of playing Captain Jack Sparrow in the sixth Pirates of the Caribbean film, having portrayed the character in five previous films.

In 2020, Depp bowed out of his role as Gellert Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts franchise after losing a domestic violence libel case against The Sun.

Meanwhile, some fans have questioned whether the three-time Oscar-nominee will work professionally again.

Though his future presence in Hollywood productions is unconfirmed as of yet, Depp is reported to have at least one acting role in the pipeline.

He is expected to star in the forthcoming French-language film Jeanne du Barry, playing the controversial French king, Louis XV. As reported in Variety earlier this year, the period drama will be directed by Maïwenn, who also stars as the ruler’s mistress, Jeanne Bécu.

Elsewhere, Depp has recently provided the voice of Johnny Puff in the children’s web mini-series, Puffins Impossible.

Plans for the sixth instalment of Pirates of the Caribbean have yet to be confirmed, but according to film producer Jerry Bruckheimer, the door isn’t completely closed for Depp to make a return.

When asked by The Sunday Times earlier this month whether there was a view for him to return as Captain Jack Sparrow, he responded: “Not at this point. The future is yet to be decided.”

Outside of these projects, the actor has also gone viral for his behaviour during the trial proceedings, with actions such as joking about bringing waffles for fansspreading widely across social media platforms.

The dispute between Depp and Heard has prompted reactions from a number of high profile figures. Here’s a rundown of the celebrities who have voiced their support for Heard, while here’s a list of the celebrities who have thrown support behind Depp.

Will Smith Reveals He Saw His Career Collapse Through A Premonition

Will Smith ingested ayahuasca, a hallucinogenic drink, and the visions he had led him to rethink his life.

After his scandal during the Oscar Awards ceremony, where he slapped comedian Chris Rock after he made a joke about the alopecia suffered by his wife Jada Pinkett Smith, actor Will Smith does not stop appearing in the media.

Vetoed for 10 years by the Academy, in addition to the fact that several film studios such as Netflix withdrew the projects in which they had him contemplated, Smith no longer has room to maneuver to try to resume his career, because now it depends on someone to give him a new opportunity.

Mind-blowing experience

Perhaps that is why he is now taking advantage of the spaces he is given to try to change the image of a violent guy who explodes at the slightest provocation without measuring the consequences of his behavior.

Interviewed by David Letterman on the program “My Next Guess Needs No Introduction”, the 53-year-old actor confessed that some time ago he opted to undergo a ritual where after ingesting ayahuasca, a hallucinogenic drink used by Amazonian tribes in their ceremonies, he managed to have a disturbing vision that later became a reality.

“I drank it, and it usually takes about 45 minutes for it to hit you. I was sitting there and even though I thought it wouldn’t hit me, all of a sudden I saw my money flying far away, my house flying away and my career going far away,” he said.

Empowered by life

However, it didn’t stop there, as in the midst of his vision he experienced that his daughter Willow would be in danger and was screaming at him asking him to help her, something that so far has not come to pass.

“Then, slowly, I stopped worrying about my money, I just wanted to reach Willow, and I stopped worrying about my house, and I stopped worrying about my career,” she emphasized.
