After the verdict, what’s next for Johnny Depp and Amber Heard

Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s defamation case has captured the world’s attention. For six weeks, the former couple’s troubled marriage was discussed and dissected in detail in court and in the media.

Heard and Depp had accused each other of domestic violence in a multi-million dollar lawsuit and the actress will now have to pay her ex-husband $15 million.

Previously, Depp lost a libel case in the UK against a tabloid that branded him a ‘wife beater’. Following the judgment, Depp was removed from the Warner Bros. film “Fantastic Beats 3” where he played one of the key characters – Grindelwald. Even production on part six of ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ has been halted – a film that made Depp one of Hollywood’s biggest stars of the past decade.

Now that American justice has rendered its verdict mainly in favor of Johnny Depp, what will be the actor’s next project? Here’s a look at what’s next for the two stars after the verdict.
