Mads Mikkelsen in Talks to Replace Depp as Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts
It is being reported that Mads Mikkelsen is currently in talks to replace Johnny Depp as Gellert Grindelwald. Depp was asked to step away from the project after his court loss in England last week.
The yet-untitled "Fantastic Beasts 3" will be the next film in the franchise, and many are excited to see Mikkelsen take on the role. He's an accomplished actor, having starred in Marvel's "Doctor Strange", "Hannibal", and "Casino Royale".
Grindelwald is a love interest of Dumbledore, and quite a dangerous wizard. A role that seems to suit Mikkelsen.
"Fantastic Beasts 3" is slated for a July 2022 release.
