Johnny Depp has been axed from the remaining Fantastic Beasts and Where to find Them movies.
Warner Bros. sacked the actor who lost his libel case against The Sun this week.
The actor wrote: “I wish to let you know that I have been asked to resign by Warner Bros. from my role as Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts and I have respected and agreed to that request.”
Depp added: “My resolve remains strong and I intend to prove that the allegations against me are false.
“My life and career will not be defined by this moment in time.”
