During his legal battle whichopposed to his former girlfriend Amber hearing, Johnny has repeatedly expressed his disappointment at the idea having been boycotted by the film industry and in particular its big sagas like “Pirates of Caribbean“or even”Animals fantastic“. A few months after the end of the trial, thehe actor begins to return to service and for his first film, he has chosen a country dear to his heart: France.
The 59-year-old actor was indeed hired by the director Maïwenn to play the monarch Louis XV in his film dedicated to the courtesan Jeanne du Barry. A project that strongly appealed to the actor… Well apparently not anymore. In fact, the two stars would have a hard time getting along and the atmosphere on the set would be electric.
At least that’s what Bernard revealed. Montiel on the Touche Pas à Mon Poste set: “I have had echoes and it is very serious. So he’s a great actor when he comes on set. Except that sometimes the team is ready at 6 am and no one comes. So afterwards, Maïwenn, the director, gets angry and the next day, she’s the one who doesn’t come, while Johnny Depp comes“. He then added: “It is madness. They have some ras-le-c**. It’s going very badly. They argue all the time“. Where does this information come from? Impossible to find out more.
