Sydney Sweeney’s Reps Say She Will Not Star in a Movie with Johnny Depp


Key takeaways:

– Sydney Sweeney faced criticism after reports of her starring alongside Johnny Depp in Marc Webb’s upcoming supernatural thriller, Day Drinker.
– Johnny Depp recently faced allegations of verbal abuse by his Blow co-star Lola Glaudini.
– Sweeney’s camp now confirms that the Euphoria star will not be part of Webb’s project.

Despite the success of her recent horror film, Immaculate, Sydney Sweeney seems to be weathering a storm on the Internet. Reports of her prospective work with Johnny Depp in a new supernatural thriller resulted in intense backlash from fans. However, representatives of the Euphoria star have now put those rumors to rest, stating that she will not be a part of the film.

Rising Stardom Amidst a Setback

Sweeney showed her versatility in Hollywood by juggling multiple projects. Following the unsuccessful stint with Sony’s Madame Web, she made a comeback with her debut production, Immaculate. The actress was also an executive producer for the rom-com Anyone But You alongside Glen Powell, which recently gained success.

Known for her roles in TV series like The White Lotus and Euphoria, Sweeney has managed to earn both critical and audience acclaim. She is currently working on two films, including Ron Howard’s thriller, Eden, and is set to return for the third season of Euphoria.

Rumored Project with Depp Sparks Controversy

Reports of Sweeney teaming up with Johnny Depp for a supernatural thriller, Day Drinker, directed by Marc Webb, surfaced earlier this week. According to industry insider Jeff Sneider, the story revolves around an “enigmatic stranger, portrayed by Depp, and a bartender grieving the loss of her lover, befitting Sweeney’s role. The film explores themes of love, friendship, and revenge.”

However, the announcement was followed by a chorus of controversy. Johnny Depp, previously in the limelight due to the defamation trial with ex-wife Amber Heard, was recently accused of verbal abuse by Lola Glaudini, his co-star from the movie Blow.

Sweeney Not Starring with Depp

Following Sneider’s report, fans of Sweeney expressed immediate and multiplied displeasure over the rumor of her collaboration with Depp, the Pirates of the Caribbean star who has been under scrutiny for his allegedly hostile behavior.

Lola Glaudini revealed during the Power Angel Truths podcast that during the filming of Blow, Depp verbally attacked her. In her recount, post a director’s instruction for her to laugh during a scene, Depp aggressively confronted her after the shot.

Though representatives of Depp denied the accusations, his career, post the dramatic legal battle with Amber Heard, has seen pronounced struggles. This ordeal reflected on Sweeney when reports of her side by side with Depp emerged. However, in response to the backlash, Sweeney’s representatives confirmed that she wouldn’t be starring in Webb’s Day Drinker after all.

While more details about Day Drinker are yet to emerge, fans can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that Sweeney won’t be teaming up with Depp.
