Compensation for Johnny Depps Forced Exit From “Fantastic Beasts”

In a recent article with Indiewire, Zack Sharf described how Warner Bros is compensating for forcing Johnny Depp to resign from filming the third “Fantastic Beasts” film. After Johnny Depp lost his libel case against The Sun, Warner Bros announced that he would not be appearing in the soon to be filmed.


Depp, who portrays Grindewald, filmed only one scene before his forced exit. However, Warner Bros is still paying Depp his full salary. Depp had a pay-or-play contract with Warner Bros, requiring him to receive his full salary despite his being recast for the film.


Although Warner Bros did not fire Johnny Depp from the film, he was asked to resign, and little is known about what drama went on behind the scenes of this decision. The film, is set to open in theatres on July 15th, 2022, and Warner Bros is currently in the act of finding a new Grindewald. It will be interesting to see how the film comes together without Johnny Depp’s famous portrayal of the famous Harry Potter character.
