Johnny Depp in the role of Louis XV in the film "The Favorite"
The network has the first frame with Johnny Depp as King Louis XV - the actor takes part in the filming of the film "The Favorite" directed by Maiwenn Le Besco. The photo was published by Deadline.
The historical drama follows the life of King Louis XV's last mistress, Jeanne Dubarry, who came from a working-class background and used her intelligence and charm to climb the social ladder. Maiwenn Le Besco herself will play the main role in the film.
The film will hit the screens next year, the exact release date has not yet been announced. The role of Louis XV will be the first for Johnny Depp in the last three years: he lost his film projects due to allegations of violence by ex-wife Amber Heard. In May, the court recognized Amber's words as slander.
Earlier, Johnny Depp signed a new contract with Dior to advertise the men's fragrance Sauvage - the actor has represented it since 2015. After accusations from Amber Heard, advertising featuring Depp ceased to be broadcast on television in the United States, but after his victory in court, the shows resumed..
