Johnny Depp will co-star in the 'Fantastic Beasts' Sequel, and Johnny also makes a cameo in the first movie released on Nov. 18!
From Hollywood Reporter: "The actor will make a cameo in the first installment, due out Nov. 18.
Johnny Depp had better start picking out a patronus.
The actor will co-star in the sequel to the upcoming Harry Potter spinoff film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
The first installment of the Warner Bros.' magical franchise is due out in theaters on Nov. 18 and stars Eddie Redmayne as magizoologist Newt Scamander, who is making his way to the Magical Congress of the United States of America in the 1920s when his magical beasts escape from his expanding briefcase.
Depp will be making a cameo in Fantastic Beasts, but his character is being kept under wraps so audiences will have to keep an eye out.
David Yates will return to the director's chair for the follow-up, which has already been dated for Nov. 16, 2018.
During a fan event earlier this month in Hollywood, J.K. Rowling made a surprise announcement that she has finished the plot for five films in the Fantastic Beast franchise. (The franchise was previously reported as a trilogy.)
The world of witchcraft and wizardry seems like a perfect fit for the actor who is known for such fantastical cinematic roles as Edward Scissorhands and Captain Jack Sparrow."
Update: Hypable has a source involved with the film who says Johnny Depp is playing the character named Grindelwald. You won’t see his face in the first movie — just the back of his head. In fact, the below still depicts Depp in a recently released Fantastic Beasts preview. This shot above is supposed to appear at the very start of the movie, to be released Nov 18.
Always about Johnny, from Deadline: "Johnny Depp has signed with CAA, the agency announced this morning. This is a shocker, and an exceptional development on multiple levels starting with the fact that stars long tenured with one agency, who’ve carried billion-dollar franchises, don’t often move. Some will simply read this as a big “get” for CAA in a continuing rivalry with UTA that ratcheted up last year when nearly a dozen CAA agents jumped to UTA and took clients including Will Ferrell and rising star Chris Pratt. Others will see this as a star in a crisis moment making a course change after recent movies didn’t work, and a loud marital breakup cast him in an unflattering light in the tabloid cross hairs."
