Johnny Depp to Co-Star in J.K. Rowling’s ‘Fantastic Beasts’ Sequel

Johnny Depp has been cast in the sequel to the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them sequel.

The actor, who is also set to appear in a cameo in the first installment (in theaters Nov. 18), will co-star in the second Harry Potter spinoff movie with Eddie Redmayne. Although Deadline, who broke the news, doesn’t know which character Depp will play, it’ll definitely be more than just a cameo.

Who knows, maybe he’ll sign on to star in the three other installments author J.K. Rowling recently announced as part of the five films in the Fantastic Beast franchise (instead of the previously reported trilogy).

Depp, who has had quite a tumultuous year after splitting up with ex-wife Amber Heard, will also star in the fifth installment of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
