Johnny Depp is reportedly making a comeback after Minamata in 2020.
Amid the highly publicized ongoing trial between Depp and his ex-wife Amber Heard, it has been confirmed that the actor will finally return to acting for the first time since abuse allegations were brought against him in 2016.
Depp hasn’t been a part of any projects since 2020, after the allegations were made in 2016, which put a halt to all his movies at the time.
Since then, there have been several petitions to blacklist Heard, including one that garnered over 3 million signatures to remove her from Aquaman 2.
Depp will star Louis XV as the French king in the upcoming film directed by French director Maiwenn. According to Variety, the film will begin shooting this summer in France, in iconic locations in Paris, including the Palace of Versailles. Filming is scheduled to last three months.
Depp’s career has been on the decline since his legal battle with Heard began. He resigned from his post at fantastic beasts franchise at the request of Warner Bros. after losing a 2020 libel case against Sun, who had called Depp a “wife beater” in a 2018 headline. Warner Bros. replaced Depp with Mads Mikkelsen in the recently released third fantastic beasts movie
