Johnny Depp’s King Louis XV Casting In Cannes-Selected Jeanne Du Barry Surprised Him

When Johnny Depp was requested about being solid in such an out-of-the-box function at such an unsure time in his profession, he feigned humility saying he felt “like there was a terrible misspelling somewhere.” Depp continued (through People):

“Maïwenn and I ended up in the wrong room at the same time. I didn’t feel any hesitation with regard to the guy, to character and all that, or the language necessarily, I didn’t find particularly intimidating.”

Maïwenn’s resolution to solid Depp could seem fully random, however the estranged actor has lived within the South of France for years. Still, Depp acknowledged how sudden the selection was, including:

“So I thought it was very brave of her to choose some hillbilly from Kentucky to play Louis XV. Very brave.”

Thus far, “Jeanne du Barry” seems to be an opulent social drama within the vein of “Pygmalion” and “My Fair Lady,” exhibiting Madame du Barry’s climb from commoner to courtesan. As for Depp’s efficiency, Vanity Fair wrote that he “haunts the film like a grim specter,” So, not precisely a successful endorsement. 

At this level in his life after amassing a staggering quantity of wealth and fame, Depp would not appear too involved with pleasing anybody anymore. “I keep wondering about the word ‘comeback,'” he mentioned. “I didn’t go anywhere. As a matter of fact, I live about 45 minutes away. Maybe people stopped calling out of whatever their fear was at the time. But I didn’t go nowhere. I’ve been sitting around.”

After premiering because the Cannes Film Festival’s opening evening choice, “Jeanne du Barry” presently doesn’t have a launch date within the U.S. Stay tuned to /Film for our protection of the pageant over the following couple of weeks.
