Sydney Sweeney shuts down reports that she will star in a new movie with Johnny Depp

The "Euphoria" star’s rep confirms she is not involved in the upcoming thriller "Day Drinker."

Euphoria’s Sydney Sweeney seemed anything but euphoric to hear reports that she will star in an upcoming supernatural thriller opposite Pirates of the Caribbean actor Johnny Depp.

The story originated from film critic Jeff Sneider, who wrote in his newsletter "The InSneider" that Sweeney, 26, and Depp, 60, would appear in director Marc Webb’s movie Day Drinker.

Sweeney seemed to respond to the news in a tweet on Saturday. “Woke up to ✨rumors✨ anyways go see @ImmaculateMovie in theaters this weekend!," she wrote, referring to her latest horror film.

A representative for Sweeney confirmed to Entertainment Weekly that she is not involved in Day Drinker.

The piece about the Sweeney and Depp team-up still appears on Sneider’s website as an "exclusive," and the post is still pinned to the top of his Twitter account. Sneider also quote-tweeted Sweeney’s remarks, writing, “A non-denial.”

Day Drinker is based on a story by Zach Dean, writer of Fast X and Chris Pratt’s The Tomorrow War. Set in Spain, Portugal, and France, the film centers on a grieving bartender who meets an "enigmatic stranger," and explores themes of “love, friendship, and revenge.”

Webb, a filmmaker and music video director, helmed 2009's 500 Days of Summer and 2012’s The Amazing Spider-Man, and has served as a producer on shows like Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Hulu’s just-concluded Death and Other Details. He is now in production on Disney’s live-action Snow White remake, starring Rachel Zegler and Gal Godot.

Sweeney, meanwhile, is terrorizing filmgoers as a young nun in an Italian convent with a bloody evil pregnancy on her hands. Immaculate features cameos from both of Sweeney's grandmothers, who enjoyed a nice Italian vacation while shooting it.

Depp's reputation has taken a hit in recent years after his ex-wife Amber Heard's accusations of domestic violence and the protracted legal battles that followed. He lost a libel lawsuit against The Sun in 2020 but won his defamation lawsuit against Heard in 2022. He recovered a $15 million award, though a jury awarded Heard $2 million in damages over her counterclaim against Depp.

The actor's most recent acting credit was voicing Johnny Puff in the animated film Johnny Puff: Secret Mission. So far, neither Depp nor his former costars Geoffrey Rush, Keira Knightley, and Orlando Bloom will officially return for Jerry Bruckheimer’s planned reboot of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
