Amber Heard has reportedly opposed her former husband Johnny Depp’s request to delay their £37 million ($50 million) defamation trial so he can film Fantastic Beasts 3 in London.

According to The Sun, the actress, 34, accused the screen star, 57, of making ‘no effort whatsoever’ to follow their planned court dates in January next year and is treating the judge as ‘subservient’ in papers filed on Saturday.

The Hidden Palms star is said to have claimed she’s due to film Aquaman 2 in February 2021, with her schedule potentially being at risk of clashing with the case if Johnny’s motion is accepted.

he Texan’s lawyers reportedly wrote against the appeal: ‘Although Mr Depp had been contacted in late June or July with the proposed filming dates, he did not alert them to the trial dates.

‘Mr Depp decided that, rather than speak with his employer to work his film commitments around his trial, he asks this court to subserviently reschedule around his employment and the entire film schedule and production.’

Pirates of The Caribbean actor Johnny, who is suing Amber for libel in Virginia, filed documents in Fairfax County on August 21, to push back the case until anywhere between March and June 2021.

The court had set the trial to run from January 11 to January 28, although Warner Bros. recently revealed they plan on filming his fantasy sequel from October until February next year.

Johnny is slated to return as Gellert Grindelwald, who was teased in a brief cameo in 2016’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them, before his starring role in 2018’s Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

‘When the Court set the current trial date in this case, Mr. Depp understood that Warner Bros. planned to shoot‘Fantastic Beasts 3 in London long before January 11, 2021,’ an excerpt from the court filing read.

The court documents also included a letter sent by Warner Bros. Senior Vice President of Legal Affairs, Glenn A. Eckerle, revealing the production schedule.
