Johnny Depp continues to roll in his “Ws” after winning his defamation lawsuit against his ex-wife Amber Heard. The star announced Monday that he will be directing a film about Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani, co-produced by Al Pacino!
“The saga of Mr. Modigliani’s life is one that I am incredibly honored and truly humbled to bring to the screen.‘ Depp told the Hollywood Reporter. This will be Depp’s first return to the director’s chair in 25 years. Most recently, he directed The Brave in 1997, which he starred in with Marlon Brando.
Johnny Depp is making his first film in over 2 decades after winning Amber Heard’s trial
The film is based on Dennis McIntyre’s 1980 play, which follows the painter and sculptor in Paris in 1916 during a 48-hour period when he was unable to sell his work. The film is scheduled to open in Europe in spring 2023. Many are wondering if Depp will star or star in the film and who he could be playing.
While Depp recovers from the lawsuit that proved he lost tens of millions of dollars over things his ex-wife said, Heard seems to be on the mend in both her career and the court of public opinion. It’s been an uphill battle for her from the start and it doesn’t look like she’ll be reviving anytime soon.
Depp’s filmography has been updated after his former talent agent in the defamation case testified that the actor missed tens of millions of dollars of work due to Heard’s allegations of abuse during their nearly two-year marriage, which ended in 2017.
We will be on the lookout for his new film for years to come! While it’s not a pirate movie or something that a lot of people are familiar with, there’s no doubt they’ll watch this movie, if at all, to support Johnny.
