New Johnny Depp Movie Gets Theatrical Release Date.

Johnny Depp is returning to the big screen four years after the release of his last film.

Vertical Entertainment announced Monday that Depp’s Jeanne du Barry will open in theaters on May 2. Starring alongside Depp in Jeanne du Barry is French film star Maïwenn, who is also directing the film.

In a press release, Vertical Entertainment revealed the synopsis of the period drama:

“Jeanne du Barry follows Jeanne Vaubernier (Maïwenn), a working-class woman determined to climb the social ladder, using her charms to escape her impoverished life. Her lover, the Comte du Barry (Melvil Poupaud), wishes to present her to King Louis XV (Johnny Depp) and orchestrates a meeting through the influential Duke of Richelieu (Pierre Richard).

“The encounter goes far beyond his expectations for it was love at first sight for the King and Jeanne. Through this ravishing courtesan, the king rediscovers his appetite for life and feels he can no longer live without her. Making Jeanne his last official mistress, scandal erupts as no one at Court will accept a girl from the streets into their rarified world.”

Jeanne du Barry made its debut as an Official Selection of the 2023 Cannes Film Festival in May 2023. At a press conference promoting the film (via The Times and Sunday Times), Depp addressed his absence from films in the past few years and the how the controversies surrounding him affected it.

“I keep wondering about the word ‘comeback’ because I didn’t go anywhere. Matter of fact, I live about 45 minutes away,” Depp told reporters in the South of France.

“So maybe people stopped calling out of whatever their fear was at the time, but no I didn’t go nowhere. I’ve been sitting around. So, comeback? [It’s] almost like I’m going to come out and do a tap dance or some sort of spectacular [dance] here on the table and, you know, dance my best for you guys and hope that you approve.”

In addition, Depp said that he doesn’t feel boycotted by Hollywood because he doesn’t think about it.

“I don’t have much further need for Hollywood myself. I don’t know how you guys feel,” Depp told reporters. “But I feel it’s a very strange, funny time where everybody would love to be able to be themselves but they can’t because they must fall in line with the person in front of them. [If] you want to live that kind of life, I wish you the best.”
