Amber Heard Slated To Star In Two Blockbusters Following Johnny Depp Trial

Amber Heard is set to star in two new blockbuster movies following her trial with ex-husband Johnny Depp.

The former couple have been locked in a bitter trial for weeks, with millions watching on as the most intimate details of their relationship were put on display for the world to see.

Depp took Heard to court over an article she wrote in 2018, in which she claimed to be a survivor of domestic abuse.

While Depp wasn't named in the piece, he claims that it damaged his career and he sued the 36-year-old for $50 million.

In turn, Heard counter-sued Depp, 58, for $100m.

But it seems that despite it all, fans won't have to wait very long to see Heard back on the big screen.

It's well-documented that she will appear once again in the next instalment of the Aquaman series, though her part is said to have been drastically cut.

However, as well as that, Heard is also slated for two more movies in the coming months.

According to her IMDB page, the actor will play Grace Burnham in demonic thriller In The Fire.

The synopsis for the movie says: "A doctor from New York travels to a remote plantation in the 1890s to care for a disturbed boy who seems to have inexplicable abilities.

"She begins treating the child, but in doing so ignites a war of science versus superstition with the local priest who believes the boy is possessed by the Devil and is the reason for all the village's woes."

The site also states that she has been cast for Run Away With Me, another thriller that centres on an American in Paris who falls for a model, with the pair becoming embroiled in the "criminal underworld of the European modelling industry".

It has also been rumoured that Depp will be starring in the upcoming Beetlejuice 2, alongside ex-girlfriend Winona Ryder.

Though nothing is confirmed just yet, fans searching the cast list have noticed that Ryder, Depp and Michael Keaton appear to be on the bill.

The original 1988 classic was directed by Tim Burton and follows the spirits of a 'deceased couple who are harassed by an unbearable family that has moved into their home', which leads to them hiring a malicious spirit - played by Michael Keaton - to drive the family out.

Part of that unbearable family was Ryder, who was 17-years-old at the time and played Lydia Deetz - the iconic goth girl you've probably dressed up as for Halloween.

And Ryder recently confirmed to USA today that she'll *hopefully* be reprising her iconic role.

The Stranger Things actor said: "I’m definitely excited and I’m really hopeful that it’ll happen. The only way we would do it is if everything was perfect and we had all the people – obviously Michael [Keaton] and obviously Tim [Burton]."

But while plenty of the Depp's fans are excited by the rumours, not everyone is so convinced, with some pouring cold water in the hubbub.

I guess we'll have to wait and see what comes of it all.
