The actor Johnny Depp has won the lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard. His team of lawyers proved that the actress Amber Heard has unlawfully defamed him and that his career has suffered as a direct consequence. The Variety magazine interviewed multiple Hollywood producers and managers and found out what Depp's chances are on returning to huge movies. 

Warner Bros Studios has removed him from the film Fantastic Beasts 3, where his role of Grindelwald was taken over by Mads Mikkelsen. Hollywood studio Disney has stopped the making of another part of the adventure movie series Pirates of the Caribbean which would  otherwise most likely be premiering in theatres if it wasn't for the accusations made by Amber Heard. Depp simply stopped receiving offers to star in blockbuster movies. Will that change now?

„It is not a light switch. It is a way back“, said Howard Bragman, a consultant for celebrities in crises. 

 

Hence, Depp did not yet fully win. During the court hearings, we have also discovered negative things about his character, such as drug addiction or unkind behavior. There is still a "problematic aura" around the actor. In addition, the producers have not forgotten how problematic his behavior was during the making of the films.

„We don't have to talk about whether there is space for negative reactions. If producers are thinking about whether someone will come at them for being the first who cast Depp in a Hollywood movie, they are right. Johnny Depp is controversial," claims Hollywood PR consultant Howard Breuer for Variety magazine. 

 

Representatives of huge Hollywood studios have refused to give an official statement for Variety magazine. However, when not on camera, they said that if Depp wants to get back into Hollywood business with big companies, he has to be patient and start with smaller movies. If he is successful and receives positive reviews from independent and smaller films, it is likely he will be approached by Hollywood producers again. 

 

„I am not certain whether Depp is willing to go through all this hard work with the goal of a comeback," said a representative of a Hollywood studio who worked on multiple projects with Depp in the past. 

 

Johnny Depp has turned 59 on the 9th of June. If his journey back to Hollywood took several years, it is hard to say what roles he would even be getting in Hollywood. He can probably say goodbye to salaries of 20 million dollars per film
