It has been officially confirmed that Johnny Depp will be replaced by Maddie Mickelsen in a new part of the Magic Animal movie series.
According to the BBC, the Warner Bros. film studio announced on November 25 that it has found a replacement for Johnny Depp in the role of the main anti-hero for this high-profile franchise – Grindelwald.
Mads Mikkelsen is a well-known actress of Danish descent, who is well known to viewers in the movie The Hunt and the TV series Hannibal. The next project will not be his first blockbuster: Michelsen has previously starred in such high-budget, high-income images as Casino Royale and Doctor Strange.
It is noteworthy that information about the possible replacement of Johnny Depp by Mikkelsen in the third part of the magical animals was spread about two weeks ago, in early November.
Recall that Johnny Depp refused the role of Grindelwald at the request of Warner Bros. after the London court edition lost the dispute with the Sun: the newspaper called him a “wife-giver” in 2018, which the actor considered slanderous, but the judge ruled that He was really abusive to his ex-wife, Amber Heard.
This information became known when the filming of Magic Animals 3 had already started in the UK, however, as it is known, Johnny Depp was only filmed in one scene, therefore, Mads Mikkelsen will not have to re-participate in the footage already shot.
