Mads Mikkelsen raised the possibility of Johnny Depp’s return to the Fantastic Beasts saga in light of his recent defamation trial victory over Amber Heard.
Mikkelsen replaced Depp as Gellert Grindelwald for the third instalment, Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore, after Depp resigned at the request of studio Warner Bros last year.
Speaking at the Sarajevo Film Festival on Monday, Mikkelsen said “it was very intimidating” stepping into Depp’s shoes for the role.
“Obviously, well, now the course has changed – he won the suit, the court [case] – so let’s see if he comes back. He might. I’m a big fan of Johnny. I think he’s an amazing actor, I think he did a fantastic job.
He continued: “Having said that, I could not copy it. There’s there was no way I could just copy it, because it’s so much him. It would be creative suicide. So, we had to come up with something else, something that was mine, and build a bridge between him and me.
“So, yes, it was intimidating. His fans were very, very sweet, but they were also very stubborn. I didn’t interact too much with them, but I could understand why they had their hearts broken.”
A fourth Fantastic Beasts movie has not yet been announced by the production company.
Mikkelsen’s turn in the third Beasts film was well received by critics, who argued that the Danish actor gave a superior performance to Depp, however, Mikkelsen previously said taking over was “chaotic”.
In June, a jury in Virginia, USA, shared their verdicts, finding that Heard had defamed Depp on all three counts.
She was demanded to award him $10.35m (£8.5m) in compensatory damages and $5m (£4.1m) in punitive damages. Heard was found to have a partial win in her case and was awarded $2m (£1.6m) in compensatory damages, but no punitive damages.
Heard has since appealed the $10.35m (£8.5m) verdict made against her, while Depp moved to overturn the defamation award that she received.
Hollywood actor Johnny Depp, known for his commendable performances in films, by playing characters that stand out of the ordinary, lost his libel case to ex-wife Amber Heard.
Johnny Depp was forced out of the "Fantastic Beasts" movie franchise days after losing a libel case in Britain against a tabloid that branded him a "wife beater."
Zuckerberg is apparently so obsessed with his public appearance that he has a dedicated staff that 'blow- dry his underarms' before he makes an appearance on stage to address the audience.
Lynn saw a number of her edgy tracks banned by country music stations, but over the course of more than six decades in the business, she became a standard-bearer of the genre and its most decorated female artist ever.
Phars Film being in the business since 1964 have launched many great movies and cinemas, and Star Cinemas at Al Ghurair Centre is definitely one of the highlights.
