This is a fine year for Forest Whitaker. We recently saw him in the fantastic Arrival, not too long ago he signed up for Ryan Coogler‘s Black Panther, and he has Rogue One: A Star Wars Story coming up. The more we see of the actor, producer, and director, the better, so it’s good to hear he’s added another intriguing project to his slate. Whitaker will star in director Brad Furman‘s (The Lincoln Lawyer) LAbyrinth, a true story about the detective who investigated the murders of Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G.

We’re still over a week out from seeing Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them hit theaters, but we already know that Johnny Depp will be playing the pivotal role of the villain Grindelwald, a dark wizard whom Harry Potter fans will be very familiar with. In fact, he’ll be making a brief appearance in the first movie, and his conflict with Hogwarts professor Albus Dumbledore will be a key part of the sequel with casting for the latter role currently underway.
Since Johnny Depp was cast in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2 (which will likely have a different title when all is said and done), some fans haven’t been too happy with his casting. After all, Depp hasn’t been turning in the best work as of late, and his career has turned into a bit of a joke. So how did we end up getting Johnny Depp in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2?

Director Kenneth Branagh seemed to have his work cut out for him when it came to casting his Murder on the Orient Express remake.
