Amber Heard is to be cut from the Aquaman sequel with her role being recast by the producers, an insider claimed.
Following her viral defeat against Johnny Depp in the blockbuster Depp-Heard defamation trial, the actress has spoken out and blasted the jury for refusing to believe her claims while doubling down on her defamatory allegations against her ex-husband in an interview with Today.
Now, more bad news for Heard could be on the horizon, whereas a source with knowledge of Aquaman 2 production spoke out and claimed that Warner Bros. decided to recast Amber’s role and reshoot the scenes in which she appeared alongside her former co-stars Jason Momoa and Nicole Kidman.
“Warner Bros. decided to recast Amber Heard’s role after screentesting the movie. They are going to be doing reshoots with [her former co-stars] Jason Momoa and Nicole Kidman,” the source told Just Jared.
Not long after, however, Amber Heard lashed out at the rumors she’s being dropped from the Aquaman sequel and called them “insensitive” and “insane.”
“The rumor mill continues as it has from day one – inaccurate, insensitive, and slightly insane,” a representative for the actress told DailyMail.com.
As the publication has since revealed, Warner Bros is yet to confirm or refute these allegations.
Should Heard be removed from the Aquaman franchise entirely, 4.6 million people who signed the petition to have her dropped from the movie will be pleased. This could, however, pose a serious financial problem to the “broke” actress who reportedly has no way of paying the $10.35 million she owes Depp following his court win.
