Johnny Depp is wasting no time wanting to get back to work despite the tumultuous court hearings during his defamation case against his ex-wife Amber Heard. The two split in 2016, and since then the exes have been battling it out in court over domestic disputes.

It's been a wild ride for Johnny Depp and his ex-wife Amber Heard, as the two of them have been battling it out in court following their 2016 split.

Heard alleged Depp was domestically violent towards her throughout their marriage, however, Depp and others have come forward with evidence to suggest otherwise. Depp has since sued not only his ex-wife but also other publications such as The Sun for calling him a "wife-beater."

Still fighting in court with ex-wife Amber Heard, Depp is asking the court to push back several hearings to resume filming.

At the moment, the trial is set to take place on Jan. 11, and resume through until June. 

According to the documents filed by Depp, filming for Fantastic Beasts had been set to start well before his court hearings, however, due to the novel Coronavirus pandemic, production was pushed back.

The current shooting dates in London conflict with the trial date, which is set in Virginia. The file also adds that if Depp misses his shooting days, he will be in breach of contract with Warner Bros. 

A hearing in regards to the new court date will take place on September 11.
