Depp’s first starring part since 2018 is in the French biographical film La Favorite, in which the actor will play King Louis XV, known in history as Louis the Beloved. It’s directed by French actress and filmmaker Maïwenn, who’ll be starring contrary Depp as Louis XV’s sanctioned other woman, the Comtesse du Barry.
The film will have a theatrical release only in France and won’t begin streaming on Netflix in the United States until 15 months after that theatrical release. Of course, the French movie will have an entirely French script, so English will be out of the question for Depp.
While Depp lived in France for several times with hisex-partner Vanessa Paradis, the actor has confessed( via People) to floundering with the language. It’s one thing for an actor to bobble through a foreign language knowing that only select cult will notice their crimes, but another to perform simply to native druggies. In La Favorite, Depp’s operation of French will have to be good of King Louis XV, which presents an interesting challenge for the actor.
I hope that Netflix in Canada will let me see this movie. !!!!
