After winning (at least temporarily) his case against his ex-wife Amber Heard, Johnny Depp is gradually making his way back to the route of movie sets. He has fallen out of favor with studios after the Aquaman star made the charges against him, even losing the part of Grindelwald in the Fantastic Beasts adaption. However, he has recently unveiled his greatest project in 25 years, and Johnny Depp is back in style as Louis XV in his upcoming movie Jeanne du Barry.
AN UNEXPECTED PROJECT ON MODIGLIANI
Johnny Depp is inexperienced in front of the camera. In addition to starring opposite one of his heroes, Marlon Brando, in the 1997 drama The Brave, he has only ever directed one picture. However, the actor has lately revealed that he would be directing a movie on the artist Modigliani. Al Pacino, who is well-known for portraying gangsters in films, and one of his regular collaborators, Barry Navidi, will co-produce this one.
The Italian painter Amedeo Modigliani will be depicted in this movie over the course of 48 hours, at a stormy time when he lived in Paris and his career was at a pivotal stage in art history. In Europe, filming should start in the spring of 2023 for this “slice of life” of the artist rather than a biography (difference made by the co-producer). In an interview, Johnny Depp provided the following details:
I am immensely thrilled and very humbled to present the story of Mr. Modigliani’s life to the big screen. This life was characterized by significant struggles but also by a decisive victory; it is a universal human narrative to which all viewers may connect.
There is currently no information indicating if Johnny Depp will appear in his own film. However, because the public is unaware of the subject of his movie, he will require a suitably well-known star to draw audiences to dark theaters. Now that his identity has been cleared in the eyes of the courts, there is no doubt that one of his actor pals would be happy to don this painter’s habit and work with him.
