Johnny Depp Accepts Film Festival Award After Being Axed From Fantastic Beasts 3

Johnny Depp Accepts Film Festival Award After Being Axed From Fantastic Beasts 3

Johnny Depp has accepted a film festival award after being dropped from the upcoming Fantastic Beasts 3.

The 57-year-old actor picked up a EnergaCamerimage cinematography award from the festival which is held in Torun, Poland, before his new film Minamata was playing to close the event.

Upon accepting the award, the festival posted a picture on Instagram of Depp behind bars holding the 'Golden Frog' trophy and pointing at it.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Depp accepted the acting award through a written letter in which he said the relationship between the actor and cinematographer is a 'pivotal one'.

He went on: "You might even say the most important, considering cinema, more than anything, is a visual medium."

This all comes after Depp - who denies ever being violent towards his ex-partner Amber Heard - lost his libel case against The Sun newspaper over an article which branded him a 'wife beater'.

After losing the battle against the publication, as well as it's executive editor Dan Wootton, Depp was dropped by Warner Bros from starring in Fantastic Beasts 3. Despite this, he will still get his full salary for the role, even though he only filmed one scene.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Pirates of The Caribbean star will still be entitled to what is said to be an eight-figure deal with the studio, meaning he'll walk away with at least $10 million (£7.6m).

Mads Mikkelsen Reacts To Rumour That He's Replacing Johnny Depp In Fantastic Beasts 3

published at2 months ago

The Sun's article claimed that Depp had assaulted his ex-wife Amber Heard, leading to a legal battle which has been described as the biggest English libel trial of the 21st century.

Depp argued the case had been aggravated by his name being included alongside that of convicted sex offender Harvey Weinstein, as well as the fact The Sun retained the article on its website.

The case was decided on the balance of probabilities - a lower standard than required in a criminal case.

The newspaper claimed to have seen 'overwhelming evidence' that Depp had attacked the 34-year-old Heard, while Depp strenuously denies those allegations.

Following the ruling, a spokesperson for The Sun said: "The Sun has stood up and campaigned for the victims of domestic abuse for over twenty years.

"Domestic abuse victims must never be silenced and we thank the Judge for his careful consideration and thank Amber Heard for her courage in giving evidence to the court."
