This year, the famous Cannes Festival of Films will start with Johnny Depp’s upcoming film. The 76th Cannes Festival will start on May 16 with the global premiere of Jeanne Du Barry, which stars Johnny Depp, 59, as King Louis XV against co-star and director Mawenn. The movie will be shown in French theatres that same day.

Melvil Poupaud, Benjamin Lavernhe, Pascal Greggory, India Hair, and Pierre Richard are also included in the ensemble. According to the movie’s official summary, “Young woman from the working-class Jeanne Vaubernier utilizes her wits and charm to ascend the social tiers one at a time. She is eager for culture and enjoyment. Oblivious to the fact of her reputation as a courtesan, she wins the king’s favor and helps him rediscover his zest for life. 

In January, a business insider revealed that there had been discussions regarding the movie having its world premiere there. More than a year since the jury generally agreed with him regarding his defamation case against Amber Heard, the movie is somewhat of a return movie for Oscar nominee Johnny Depp.

Johnny Depp and Heard came to an agreement in December and chose to drop their appeals. She said in a long statement that she would pay $1M and that she had not admitted to anything and that was in no way a concession.

The next movie Modi, which is based on Dennis McIntyre’s play Modigliani, will also be directed by Depp. Amedeo Modigliani, an excellent artist of Italian descent, is seen in France in 1915 in this book. In a recent news release, Johnny Depp stated that he was immensely thrilled to have received the opportunity to bring the story of Mr. Modigliani’s world to the big screen. He adds, his life was marked by extreme adversity and ultimate victory and serves as a universal narrative that everyone at some point may relate to.
