New Johnny Depp movie "Jeanne Dubarie" to be shown at Cannes Film Festival
And then it will be released on Netflix in France.
The historical drama "Jeanne Dubary," directed by French filmmakers, will open the Cannes Film Festival on May 16. The lead role in the film, King Louis XV, was played by Johnny Depp. And he did it when Hollywood stopped offering him roles after his high-profile divorce from Amber Heard.
Depp is expected to attend the Cannes premiere in person and walk the walkway with his colleagues and pose with them on the stairs of the Palais des Festivals. Experts believe that the "high-profile" premiere of "Jeanne Dubary" in France will help the actor regain the lost opportunity to star in "big cinema".
The historical drama was directed by Mayvennes. In addition to Depp, it starred Pierre Richard, Melville Poupot, Pascal Greggory, Benjamin Lavergne and others. After Cannes, it will be available to watch on French Netflix.
