Depp will next be seen in the film Jeanne du Barry

Recently, Depp’s first look as King Louis XV of France from his upcoming film Jeanne du Barry was released. The movie will serve as a comeback for the actor after a hiatus due to the highly publicized defamation trial against Heard.

Johnny started shooting for the project in July this year. The film is being directed by French filmmaker Maiwenn and will also star Benjamin Lavernhe, Pierre Richard, Melvil Poupaud, Noemie Lvovsky, Pascal Greggory and India Hair. 

The Pirates of the Caribbean star recently also signed a multi-year, seven-figure deal with fashion brand Dior to continue serving as the brand ambassador of their bestselling cologne, Sauvage.

The Actor Recently Released Music Album “18” in Collaboration with Jeff Beck

Depp, who is also known for his work as a musician, released the album “18” in collaboration with legendary English guitarist Jeff Beck on July 15. The album features 13 tracks, most of which are covers of Motown soul songs. Other songs include works of Beach Boys, The Velvet Underground and Killing Joke.

Depp also wrote a song for the album titled Sad Mother F*ckin’ Parade, which, people think, refers to Amber Heard without naming her. “You’re sitting there like a dog with a seven-year itch.
