Johnny Depp to direct a movie about Modigliani

After 25 years of his last job as a director, actor Johnny Depp is preparing to direct a film about the Italian painter and sculptor Amedeo Modigliani (1884-1920), which he will produce with Al Pacino and Barry Navidi.

A quarter of a century after making his directorial debut in The warriorwhich he headed with Marlon Brandon in 1997, Depp will go behind the scenes to address the artist’s story, based on the work of Dennis McIntyre.

“I am incredibly honored to bring his life to the screen,” Depp said in remarks published by The Hollywood Reporter. “It was a life of great hardship,” she added, “but ultimately a triumph, a universally human story that all viewers can relate to.”

The film, whose production would begin around April 2023, is the actor’s second work project after the media trial for defamation who pitted him against his ex, Amber Heard, who had accused him of gender violence.

In addition, the film about the Italian artist marks a new collaboration between Pacino and Navidiwho previously worked on films like The merchant of Venice Y Salome. “Al introduced me to Modigliani’s work many years ago and I instantly fell in love with it,” said Navidi.

In relation to Depp, a week ago they transcended the first images of the actor as Louis XVa film that began shooting in July and is directed by and stars the French Maiwenn Le Besco.

Louis XV is a royal romantic drama in which Maiwenn plays Jeanne du Barry, the king’s official lover and the king’s favourite, who even took center stage from none other than Marie Antoinette.

Madame du Barry possessed an indefinable allure that made women envious and seduced men. So much so that, according to Louis XV, she was the only woman in France who made him forget that he was in his sixties. Du Barry was guillotined on December 8, 1793, during the French Revolution.

Depp’s last film role was in 2020 in minmataan independent film in which he took on the role of photojournalist Eugene Smith.

The actor, after meeting the ruling that acquitted him of the accusation of Amber Heard for gender-based violence, said: “My life has been given back.”

It was the most followed trial in the media in recent decades; the presence of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, mutually accused of defamation, kept a good part of the social chronicle and the followers of both stars in suspense of Hollywood throughout the almost two months that the lawsuit lasted on the stand.

Hence, when the verdict was known, Depp’s reaction was one of manifest, although sober joy. He emerged victorious from the trial that put his image and his career at risk.

At that time, he published an emotional and extensive letter on Instagram, in which he expressed that he owed this victory to his family, his children and all his loved ones who have supported him for years and publicly stood up for him: “This ruling has given me my life back and I feel at this moment an enormous peace knowing that justice has finally been achieved.”
