Is Amber Heard starring in 'Fast and Furious'? Vin Diesel reportedly keen to get 'Aquaman' actor in franchise
Amber Heard might be busy with the blockbuster DC Extended Universe sequel 'Aquaman 2', but it looks like there might be more work coming her way. As it turns out, reports reveal that Heard might have a spot waiting for her in the cast of the 'Fast and Furious' franchise, all thanks to Vin Diesel.
This comes after Johnny Depp supporters are planning to boycott Heard's upcoming flick, as Warner Bros chose to keep her on board in the role of Queen Mera, but had her ex-husband resign as Grindelwald from the 'Fantastic Beasts' franchise.
No matter how much Depp's fans and followers would love to hear, it looks like opportunities for Heard aren't going anywhere. 'Aquaman: Necrus' might be set to begin filming in summer 2021, but new movie offers are already presenting themselves.
According to insider Daniel Richtman, 'Fast and Furious' star Vin Diesel is seeking to find a role for the 35-year-old in a future movie effort. At this point, this is just speculation. As per some reports online, Richtman doesn't expound on his tip any further, so nothing more can be said about their professional relationship that could be in the making. It could also make sense for Heard to take up the offer as jumping in between multiple billion-dollar movie franchises is a good idea at the industry level.
It must also be noted that Richtman previously claimed that Heard was in talks with actor Margot Robbie for a prospective role in a female-power 'Pirates of the Caribbean' spinoff. He also said that she'd be in the 'Fantastic Four‘ as Sue Storm aka the Invisible Woman and perhaps even an unnamed Disney princess that could be Rapunzel.
In addition to that, reports also say that the insider has speculated the actress will also be a part of the expanded Star Wars universe, a solo Mera series on HBO Max, a 'Drive Angry' sequel with Nicolas Cage, multiple Netflix projects and an Oscar-caliber role.
None of these projects have even come close to being confirmed or materializing as of yet.
And since it is mere speculation at this point, we can't be sure if Diesel and the rest of the gang of 'Fast & Furious' movie franchise will share screen space with Heard until more details emerge.
Either way, Heard is not going to star in the next 'Fast & Furious' movie when the 9th film in the series 'F9' releases on June 25, 2021. However, she shared the trailer for her upcoming movie 'Gully', which is set to release in select theatres on June 4, 2021, and on digital and on demand on June 8.
Heard will also be busy working on 'Fallen Angel'. According to a report carried in Giant Freakin Robot, Heard will be seen in the action movie that will see her surviving a helicopter crash only to find out she’s wrapped up in a larger conspiracy. It is touted to be her solo action movie.
