0 16

Johnny Depp is planning a double comeback in show business after his stunning court victory.

The 58-year-old actor smiled and shook hands with fans in a Newcastle upon Tyne pub last night after seeing ex-wife of jury brand Amber Heard a liar.

Buoyed by feverish support on social media and in court, he believes he now has a “golden chance” to reset his career.

Later this year, he plans to release an album with guitar legend Jeff Beck, 77, written by the two men at Beck’s home in Sussex, where Depp has been working for months. He will also make art house films.

His legal team applauded the verdict, with British law firm Schillings saying they “couldn’t be happier for him”.

The company said it was pleased it had a chance to “expose” Miss Heard’s falsehoods.

In particular, his lawyers found it significant that Heard confessed that she had failed to donate $7 million (£5.6 million) to charities from her divorce settlement, as she had alleged in London – and actually admitted to committing perjury in the High Court in 2020.

A Schillings spokesperson said: “We are delighted that Johnny has had the opportunity to explain what he has been through, as painful as it must have been.

In the wake of the UK verdict, Johnny said it would not change his fight to tell the truth, that his determination remained strong and that he intended to prove the charges against him were false.

“We believe he has finally achieved that, and we couldn’t be happier for him.”

Amber Heard said the court's verdict was a 'setback for women' after she was found to have defamed her actor ex-husband and was ordered to pay a $15 million settlement

In addition to building on his music career, Depp also plans to pick up his acting career and “do exactly what I’ve wanted to do for years.”

Depp has remained largely silent since the UK court ruling, but told journalist Jason Solomons: “This is the golden opportunity to do exactly what I’ve wanted to do for years, which is make the movies or cinema I want. to steer clear of restrictions, not allowing unintentional fingers to get in the pie, i.e. making movies that don’t have to be $300 million movies.”

Depp’s new career will see him start from near zero financially.

In 2020 UK court it was revealed that he had made up to £400million during his career.

It was apparently spent on property, drugs, booze and whims, such as firing the ashes of his hero, the writer Hunter S. Thompson, into space, costing him £4 million.

After the disgrace, his bohemian character – presenting himself as a carefree failure – was unchanged.

He is now hoping to pick up the thread of his film career, which hit the buffer after losing his libel action in London and agreeing to pull out of the Harry Potter spin-off Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore.

In an extensive interview with film critic Solomons, released on his podcast Seen Any Good Films Lately?, Depp revealed that he expects to return to acting.

He makes a distinction between cinema and film, ‘a big difference that I feel’.

He explains that cinema gives you ‘that kind of freedom to create, show bits of character, reveal the crack, that’s an exploration; while other times where you’re making a movie you get in, they want the lines said or the jokes spat out and then you get out — if you can.”

The verdict means Miss Heard was once believed by a British Supreme Court judge, but not believed by a jury in America.

British PR expert Mark Borkowski said: ‘There is no turning back for Heard in Hollywood. If you’re sitting there making a movie or thinking about casting it, are you going to hire her?

‘Look at the outrage over Aquaman 2’ [where a petition to have her kicked off the film hit four million signatures last night]. The trial pollutes any marketing or PR to launch a movie.”
