Amber Heard Rumored to be “In Talks” with Disney for Live-Action ‘Tangled’ Remake. Disney Fans are not happy after hearing that Johnny Depp’s ex-wife Amber Heard has reportedly been in contact with Disney regarding the upcoming live-action Tangled remake.
The scoop comes from insider Daniel Richtman who shared that Amber Heard and her representatives have spoken to Disney regarding a role in the film. Likely eyeing the lead role as Rapunzel if we had to take a guess.
Heard and Depp are currently in several major legal battles in both the US and UK regarding accusations of abuse on both sides throughout their tremulous and toxic relationship. The accusations alone have caused a stir in the career of Depp, having been dropped by Disney in the role of Captain Jack Sparrow and Warner Bros. as Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts franchise.
Reportedly, Depp will be joining longtime friend and fellow filmmaker Tim Burton in one of his upcoming projects such as The Addams Family television series and/or Beetlejuice 2.
Needless to say, Johnny Depp is a Disney fan favorite actor with his iconic roles as Captain Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise and as the Mad Hatter in the live-action Alice in Wonderland films, so the news that Amber Heard may be joining the cast of an upcoming Disney film is garnishing mixed reactions from fans online.
What do you think? Should Heard be considered for a role in the upcoming film? Or should Disney pass on the opportunity and find a less controversial actress for the fan favorite role of Rapunzel? We would love to hear your thoughts in the comments.
