Amber Heard already has two films in the pipeline following her loss in a defamation lawsuit against her ex-husband Johnny Depp.

On Wednesday (July 1), a jury of seven were in favour of the Pirates of the Caribbean actor. He was awarded $US10 million ($AUD 13.7 million, £7.9 million) in damages to compensate him, including loss of income, according to ABC News.

Ms Heard was also awarded US$2 million ($AUD 2.7 million, £1.5 million) in damages after it was found one of Depp's lawyers had defamed her, claiming she ‘spilled a little wine and roughed the place up, got their stories straight’ before calling the police.

But this might not only be the only small win for the 36-year-old actor as she’s also set to appear in two upcoming movies.

Macra reports that before the trial commenced, Heard wrapped that upcoming flick In The Fire, set in the 1800s, with the actor playing a North American psychiatrist who heads to a remote plantation to take care of a boy with ‘special abilities'.

As the psychiatrist tries to find a scientific explanation for why the boy has ‘abilities’, she faces backlash from the small religious town.

The film was directed by Conor Allyn, who worked on the screenplay with Pascal Borno and Silvio Muraglia.

No word yet on the film’s release date.

She is also set to star in Run Away With Me.

According to IMDb, the film is about an American in Paris who falls in love with a model.

They then discover the 'criminal underworld' of the modelling industry in Europe.

Heard’s next work set for a theatrical release next year, on March 17, is DC’s Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom.

The Zombieland actor starred in the first Aquaman film, where she played Arthur Curry/Aquaman’s love interest Mera, The princess of Xebel and daughter of King Nereus.

At the time of the release of the first film in 2018, Depp had lost his libel case against the news outlet The Sun, which labelled him as a ‘wife beater’, according to BBC News.

Following reports that Heard will star in the sequel to the superhero flick, a change.org petition was created to demand the actor be removed from the upcoming film.

The ‘Remove Amber Heard From Aquaman 2’ has already garnered over four million signatures.

Its description makes various allegations against the actor, claiming she has ‘systematically crusaded’ against Depp and made up ‘fake accounts of abuse’, where she was instead the perpetrator. 

The petition concludes: “Men are victims of domestic abuse, just like women. This must be recognised, and action must be taken to prevent a known abuser from being celebrated within the entertainment industry.

“Do the right thing. Remove Amber Heard from Aquaman 2.”
