Famous US actor Johnny Depp, who was on the agenda for a while with the defamation lawsuit he filed against his ex-wife Amber Heard, made a glorious return to cinema with the movie "Jeanne du Barry" in which he gave life to King Louis XV of France.


Depp spoke about the movie, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival last year.

"I feel very lucky to have been offered the role. I'm strangely lucky," Depp said.

The actor continued:

"It didn't make any sense for me to play this role. I tried to talk the director out of it, but he wouldn't hear me, and he was brave enough to let me in his movie."

Depp's career comeback movie received a standing ovation for 7 minutes at the Cannes Film Festival.

The director Maiwenn Le Besco, who also starred in the film, came under fire last year. The director was accused of physically assaulting a journalist. The director is said to have attacked Edwy Plenel, a French journalist from Medipart magazine, in a restaurant. The director got up, grabbed Plenel by the hair, spat in his face and left the restaurant without saying anything.

Maiwenn told the French talk show Quotidien that this incident happened. When asked if he spat at the journalist, the director said, "Do I confirm that I attacked her?" and after a long silence admitted, "Yes."


The famous director and actor was fined 400 euros for spitting at a French journalist. The director was ordered to pay a symbolic 1 euro to Plenel and 1500 euros to Mediapart magazine.


It was announced that famous actor Johnny Depp was fired from the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie while his defamation lawsuit with his ex-wife Amber Heard was ongoing.

After the lawsuit ended in Depp's favor, it was revealed that Disney reached out to the famous name and took action for the sequel of Pirates of the Caribbean. However, Johnny Depp's lawyer denied claims that the actor would return to the series.

Jerry Bruckheimer, the producer of the series, said that the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie will be a "reboot".

The sixth Pirates of the Caribbean movie, with a new cast and a brand new script, will be a brand new movie, even though it takes place in the same universe.


"We're going to remake Pirates of the Caribbean. It's easier because you don't have to wait for some actors to return to the franchise."

Although this statement of the producer indicates that Johnny Depp will not return to the series, the actor can always surprise his fans.

Although the cast is renewed in "reboot" productions, the stars of the original production can surprise moviegoers by taking part in some scenes in the new films.
