Johnny Depp Joins 'Fantastic Beasts 2'
I guess Warner Bros. is presuming David Yates' Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is going to be a success because they just announced that Johnny Depp has joined the cast of the second film in the wannabe franchise. I think it's pretty safe to assume that this film will make a sufficient amount of dough at the cinemas, so they weren't exactly going out on a limb when it came to planning for the second film so soon. Plus, if this is a massive hit, it's good to strike when the iron is still hot, knowing how short attention spans are these days.
As for the casting, I think Johnny Depp should fit right in here. I'm just hopping they don't slather a ton of makeup on him again. I'd like to see him play some version of normal for once, just to see if he can pull it off.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hits theaters on November 18, 2016.
