Netflix acquires Johnny Depp starrer movie “La Favorite”

The project filmed primarily in France is a return for the Hollywood hotshot and recently missing from the big screens. According to sources, Netflix has acquired the rights to the movie to help with its production in terms of finance without much interference in the actual film.

Sources state that the deal holds the right for France only (till now) but will surely follow a worldwide release once the film gets made. We see Johnny Depp portray the character of the historical figure King Louis XV whose ascender King Louis XVI fell prey to The French Revolution. The project will be helmed by Maïwenn Le Besco and will be released in theaters across France in the year 2023. But why is this such a big deal?

Here is what the fans had to say about this deal:

The Johnny Depp Defamation Trial

Johnny Depp is known for many of his films. From playing the humorous Jack Sparrow (Captain Jack Sparrow, apologies) to Edward Scissorhands, Depp has ruled the heartbeat of millions nay billions of people worldwide. The actor however did find himself in a bit of a pickle with his ex-wife Amber Heard in a defamation case!

After gaining a victory and earning $10 million from his ex-wife in the infamous Amber-Depp defamation case, he went to perform in a local pub with his friends. Following several performances locally and some concerts, it was rumored that he would become a full-time rockstar. The release of the film La Favorite disproves this theory as we finally get to see the hero’s return to the big screens.

However small or big his role may be, Depp has found a way to make a place for himself in Hollywood. Recent news has it that the actor might be reprising his role of the titular, sarcastic, and mostly drunk character of Jack Sparrow in the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie with a whopping fee of over $300 million!
