In the spring of this year, Johnny Depp once again attracted an audience of millions in front of the screens. But instead of “Pirates of the Caribbean” or “Fantastic Beasts” his fans and opponents watched the public court case he led against his ex-wife and fellow actress Amber Heard. Now that the hype surrounding the legal dispute has subsided and the jury has ruled in favor of Depp, the Hollywood star is now preparing his cinema comeback.
For the first time since he was in front of the camera for “Minamata” in 2019, Johnny Depp is now making a film again: the biopic “Jeanne du Barry’, where he met the French King Louis XV. embodied. well has deadline the first picture of the Depp comeback published:
Johnny Depp is used to fancy costumes and thick make-up and in “Jeanne du Barry“ he is not so easy to recognize in full costume. In addition to the picture, there is also some information about the plot.
The focus is on the eponymous Marie Jeanne Bécu (played by director Maiwenn), who grows up in poor circumstances in 1743 and uses her intelligence and ambition to move up the social ladder. As a courtesan, she becomes involved with a nobleman, becomes his wife and henceforth bears the name Jeanne du Barry. She later makes the acquaintance of King Louis XV, who falls head over heels in love with her, but whose past as a courtesan remains hidden from him. When he invites his newly won mistress to live with him in the Palace of Versailles, he triggers a major scandal.
“Jean you Barry’ will likely be released in theaters sometime in 2023. Should the historical drama also get a German release, it would be the first time since “Fantastic Animal Beings 2” in 2018 that a Johnny Depp film would start regularly in cinemas in Germany.
