This week saw The Hollywood Reporter reporting Depp has requested a delay on the trial so he can get back to work in the upcoming third film in the Fantastic Beasts franchise.
The report claims the recently delayed filming of Fantastic Beasts 3 has created an “irreconcilable conflict” for Depp.
Depp filed a motion earlier this month which read: “When the Court set the current trial date in this case, Mr. Depp understood that Warner Bros. planned to shoot ‘Fantastic Beasts 3’ in London long before January 11, 2021.
“COVID-19 disrupted the studio’s plans, causing repeated postponements. With conditions in London having improved somewhat, Warner Bros. has now set a shooting schedule that conflicts with the trial date in this case.”
