After scandalous dismissals from many projects, Depp returns to big cinema in the film “Jeanne Dubarry”.
The first photos of Johnny Depp in the role of the French King Louis XV in the film “Jeanne Dubarry”, or “The Favorite” appeared. The role of Jeanne went to actress Maywenn Le Besco. She is also the director of the film. Deadline writes about this.
The film about the king and his mistress will be Johnny Depp's first big work after he was fired from a number of projects after allegations of domestic violence.
After court cases between him and his ex-wife Amber Heard, Johnny lost roles in Fantastic Beasts and Pirates of the Caribbean. His latest work was a role in Minamata in 2020.
The film is currently in post-production after 11 weeks of filming in locations such as the Palace of Versailles and other castles in the Paris area.
Nothing is known about the details of the plot. The film was the sixth full-length work of Maivenn, who became famous for her roles in the films of her boyfriend Luc Besson.
In her new film, Pierre Richard will play one of the roles.
The drama is historical, which means that it the story of Jeanne Dubarry, the king's last official mistress, will be told. Jeanne Becu was the daughter of a monk and a seamstress, worked as a milliner and courtesan, then lived in the house of Count Dubarry, where the king noticed her.
Louis XV became famous for his relationship with Madame de Pompadour, and for the maintenance of his so-called “Deer Park” near Versailles, where his many mistresses and mistresses were kept. After the death of Pompadour, Jeanne took her place, who regularly supplied her lover with young girls. The king was terribly afraid of contracting venereal diseases, and therefore preferred “unspoiled” partners.
Ironically, he died of smallpox, which he contracted from one of the girls sent to him by Dubarry.

After the death of the king, Jeanne ended up in a monastery, where she was placed under arrest. After she was released, she settled on an estate given to her by the late king. During the revolution, Jeanne was arrested. She was executed on the guillotine. The king's favorite was 50 years old.
