Why does Netflix cancel all movies with Johnny Depp?
They didn’t cancel Depp’s movies. They lost the licensing rights to The Rum Diaries recently because they only had a one-year deal for them. That is part of an ongoing trend as competitors launch their own streaming services (Disney took the rights to Pirates of the Caribbean in-house to help out Disney+, for instance): Netflix hasn’t made any in-house films featuring Depp, so they’re losing the rights to a lot of his work.
But they’re still showing Depp films like Rango in the US and are adding What’s Eating Gilbert Grape in 4 days when their license renews on it. And they’re showing Dark Shadows, Donnie Brasco, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, etc in the UK.
