The news comes days after the actor lost a high-profile UK defamation case against tabloid publication The Sun, which had published an article in 2018 about Depp's relationship with his ex-wife Amber Heard. In that article, the tabloid alleged that Depp was a "wife beater." In the British court case decided Monday, the judge ruled that what The Sun had published was substantially true and that 12 of Heard's 14 allegations of physical assault were substantiated. This was not a criminal trial against Depp.

 

In his letter on Friday, Depp also wrote: "The surreal court judgment in the UK will not change my struggle to tell the truth and I confirm that I plan to appeal. My resolve remains strong and I intend to show that the allegations in against I am false. My life and my career will not be defined at this time. "

 

In a written statement, a Warner Bros. spokesperson told NPR on Friday: "Johnny Depp will be leaving the Fantastic Beasts franchise. We thank Johnny for his work on the films to date. Fantastic Beasts 3 is currently in production, and the Gellert Grindelwald's role will be recast. "

 

The next installment in the Fantastic Beasts franchise was originally scheduled for release next November. However, the Warner Bros. spokesperson said that the studio has delayed the release of the film until the summer of 2022.
