Johnny Depp says Hollywood is boycotting him while US release of ‘Manamata’ is pending

Johnny Depp is worried about the delay in the release of his film “Manamata” and in theaters in the United States because he says that his legal problems should not be an obstacle in its release.

The troubled actor claimed that Hollywood was boycotting him for delaying the US release of his film, which is a real-life account of Minamata disease. The film deals with the mercury poisoning of Japanese coastal communities in the 1970s.

The film stars W. Eugenie Smith, a 58-year-old American photojournalist whose photography articles highlight the negative effects of poison on people in communities.

Talking about “Minamata”, Depp insisted that people have the right to watch the movie or not. He said that the film deserves to be watched regardless of his personal problems. Depp is on trial in Virginia next year on domestic abuse charges with his ex-wife, Amber Hard, which he has since vehemently denied. The allegations led to his expulsion as Warner Bros. ‘Grandfather’ in the “Fantastic Beasts” franchise.
