Johnny Depp’s much-anticipated movie “Jeanne Du Barry” has dropped its trailer, a year after his controversial trial with ex-wife Amber Heard. The historical drama is about Jeanne Vaubernier, a young working-class woman who uses her intelligence and allure to climb the social ladder, becoming the favorite of King Louis XV. They fall madly in love, and Jeanne moves to Versailles, where her arrival scandalizes the court.
The trailer looks promising, but unfortunately, the makers have not yet decided on a US release date. The trailer also does not include English subtitles, which might disappoint some viewers.
“Jeanne Du Barry” stars Johnny Depp alongside Melvil Poupaud, Pierre Richard, Pascal Greggory, India Hair, and Benjamin Lavernhe. Fans of Depp will be thrilled to know that he is also ready to direct a movie called “Modi,” based on the play “Modigliani” by Dennis McIntyre. The film will focus on the Italian-born painter and sculptor Amedeo Modigliani in Paris in 1916.
In a recent press release, Depp expressed his excitement about the project, saying, “The saga of Mr. Modigliani’s life is one that I’m incredibly honored and truly humbled to bring to the screen. It was a life of great hardship, but eventual triumph – a universally human story all viewers can identify with.”
Depp has had a successful career as an actor, and it will be exciting to see him take on the role of director. Fans will have to wait and see when “Jeanne Du Barry” and “Modi” will hit theaters, but with Depp at the helm, both movies are sure to be worth the wait.
