Asked what he thought of Depp being fired from Fantastic Beasts 3, Ellis said: “Part of it is the fear of media.
“Whether it be broadcast, whether it be movie studios, whether it be publishing, there is a fear that the perception of someone is negative, so they don’t want to be associated with that.
“I do find it ironic that a man who is revered and loved and respected by so many people in the entertainment industry – and have nothing but great things to say about him – should be forcibly removed from a movie.”
As for a Hollywood return, the 53-year-old reckons that the Jack Sparrow star will be back in some form before too long.
