Johnny Depp’s new film will be streamed by Netflix in France

Johnny Depp will soon return to Netflix with a new movie shortly after

Netflix France has licensed the Depp-starring French movie La Favorite

for streaming after it completes its theatrical window.

The film stars Depp as French king Louis XV, and Maiwenn

who also directs – as Jeanne du Barry, Louis XV’s last mistress.

A source close to Netflix has since clarified to The Independent that it had not financed the film
