Recently, actor Johnny Depp lost his role in Fantastic Beasts 3 due to a lost trial. The media found out that his behavior during the filming of Murder on the Orient Express in 2017 almost cost him this job.
As an anonymous Disney executive told Business Insider, Johnny Depp allowed himself to be late for filming the adaptation of Agatha Christie’s novel. And only the director of the film, Kenneth Brunet, managed to take control of the situation.
“Filming, interviews. He never hid his parties. But in the end, he pushed himself to the limit on Murder on the Orient Express. Right after the start of rehearsals, in 2017, he came late on the first day, and Ken Branagh, the director, said very calmly, “I don’t work like that. I do not admit being late. If you choose this behavior, you can leave the movie. Right now. Everything is fine”. Johnny just said, “I heard you, sir, I won’t do this anymore.” This humiliated him in front of stars of the same magnitude as himself, ”said the source.
During the filming of the movie, Johnny Depp did go out to parties all the time. Filming for Murder on the Orient Express began after Amber Heard filed for divorce in 2016.
Also, 2017 was the year when Depp’s multiple financial problems took center stage in the headlines. In 2017, it became known that the actor was using new films to pay off old debts. It was also reported then that the actor spends more than $ 2 million on expenses each month, and a few years before that, he spent $ 5 million to scatter the ashes of his friend Hunter S. Thompson from a cannon.
During his trial with publisher The Sun, Depp spoke openly about drug and alcohol problems, but this story once again describes Depp’s state of affairs during the divorce.
