Johnny Depp will no longer be part of ‘Fantastic Beasts’ franchise.

Warner Bros have announced Johnny Depp has been cut loose from their Fantastic Beasts franchise based in the Harry Potter universe.

“Johnny Depp will depart the Fantastic Beasts franchise,” said the studio in a statement today “We thank Johnny for his work on the films to date. Fantastic Beasts 3 is currently in production, and the role of Gellert Grindelwald will be recast. The film will debut in theaters worldwide in the summer of 2022.”

The annoucement follows the outcome of a court case in the UK that has labelled him a wife beater.

Depp himself first made the news public online earlier on Friday:
