Johnny Depp returning to film as King Louis XV?

Johnny Depp is reportedly returning to the film industry after winning defamation

case against his ex-wife Amber Heard as Netflix is set to co-finance and stream the actor's next film.

The French period film, “La Favorite,” in which Depp will portray King Louis XV,

will receive financial backing from Netflix, according reports.

The film, directed by Maiwenn Le Besco, is expected to be released in 2023 in

French theaters, and will be available on Netflix France 15 months later.

It’s not clear whether the film will be available on Netflix worldwide.

La Favorite will be Depp’s first cinema role since Hollywood turned its back on the

Pirates Of The Caribbean star after his ex-wife made domestic violence accusations against him.
