Johnny Depp will have a part in J.K. Rowling's wizarding world when he takes a role Warners Bros. upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sequel.
Also yesterday, we learned that the Fantastic Beasts sequel will be taking place in Paris.
After the news of Depp's casting hit, there was an uproar on Twitter, with many people referencing Depp's domestic abuse case against Amber Heard as a reason not to cast him. (Heard donated her $7 million divorce settlement from the case to charity.)
I'm livid about the Johnny Depp casting. It's revealed that you attacked and abused your wife and then you get this? No. Absolutely not.— Rosianna Halse Rojas (@papertimelady) November 2, 2016
Johnny Depp and Chris brown are smashing their careers like they never abused women - and we're all staying quiet like that's fine. It isn't— Sammy 👅💦 (@Little_Fickle) November 2, 2016
