Today, People Magazine revealed that actor Johnny Depp has softened his stance on working with Disney again on any future project. The actor became bitter towards Disney and WB after he was removed from several of their high-profile projects following the abuse allegations and very public defamation trial last summer with ex-wife Amber Heard.

Warner Brothers removed the actor from the Fantastic Beasts films following The Crimes of Grindelwald and replaced him with Mads Mikkelsen. Disney also parted ways with the Pirates of the Caribbean actor and looked to make spin-off films set in the same universe without the main anti-hero Jack Sparrow. Unfortunately, none of the spin-offs have come to fruition, and the studio may pivot back to the actor as well. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer told Deadline earlier this year he considers Depp an “amazing friend”.  Adding, “You go through things in life that you wish you hadn’t done right.”.
