This project will be the actor’s first job since the end of legal proceedings with Amber Heard.
Johnny is finally back! The new project of the actor will be the film “The Favorite” about Louis XV. It will be Johnny Depp’s first film entirely in French and will be sponsored by the Netflix streaming service.
Filming is due to begin this summer and will last three months. By the way, some of the scenes will be filmed even in the Palace of Versailles. According to Bloomberg, Johnny Depp will play the role of King Louis XV of France.
The film will be directed by Maiwenn Le Besco, who gained popularity after working on the films Leon and The Fifth Element. She, by the way, will play the mistress of King Madan du Barry. It is the film “The Favorite” that will be the first full-fledged and large-scale project for the actor, which was abandoned by all the studios because of the scandal with Amber Heard.
