Robert Downey Jr Is Trying Really Hard To Rope Johnny Depp For ‘Sherlock Holmes 3’-REPORTS
Johnny Depp’s personal and professional life has been a disaster following the accusations of violence and abuse by his ex-wife Amber Heard. The 58-year-old had sued News Group Newspapers, the company publishing The Sun, and Dan Wootton, for calling him a “wife-beater” but lost the UK trial in 2020, which eventually led him to lose movies like ‘Fantastic Beasts 3’ and ‘Pirates Of The Caribbean 6’.

He is currently engaged in a $100 million defamation lawsuit with his former wife. The Edward Scissorhands actor sued the 36-year-old actress for $50 million after she wrote an op-ed for The Washington Post titled ‘I spoke up against sexual violence — and faced our culture’s wrath.

Depp’s professional life has definitely taken a toll and there is no confirmed report regarding the cast of 'Sherlock Holmes 3’ but several reports have speculated that Robert Downey Jr is trying hard to get Depp into the movie.

A FandomWire report stated that Robert Downey Jr “always wanted to work with famous personalities. And big talks are going on about Johnny Depp might come ahead to sign the contract for the movie.”

Also, a November 2020 tweet stated, “A Friend in need is a Friend indeed! Robert Downey Jr. Reportedly Pushing For Johnny Depp To Have Sherlock Holmes 3 Role. Depp helped RDJ in his bad times in 2008, if not for Depp then we wouldn't've had such an awesome Iron man. #rdj #johnnydepp #rdjdepp #robertdowneyj.”

However, the movie has been delayed due to several reasons, including the Covid pandemic. 

Director Dexter Fletcher told the ‘Celebrity Catch Up Podcast’ in 2020, “Sherlock's hit its own issues on and off. That's sort of sitting on the back burner at the moment until it becomes clear where the world is at and what's going to happen.”
