As far as is known, the feature film will be recorded during the months of July and August, and for the first time, the actor will speak French on tape, whose budget will be 20 million dollars and its premiere is planned for 2023.
“La Favorite” will be Depp’s comeback, after he was out of work for a while following Heard’s domestic violence accusations. In 2020, a British court decided that 12 of the 14 incidents of violence claimed by Heard were “substantially true” and Depp lost his role in the “Fantastic Beasts” franchise after Warner Bros asked him to step down.
Additionally, there are reports that the actor is in talks to star in another “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie and reprise his role as “Captain Jack Sparrow” after a $301 million offer from Disney.
