Johnny Depp’s King Louis XV Movie Updates: Everything We Know

Johnny Depp is starring as King Louis XV in the upcoming French movie Jeanne Du Barry – here’s everything we know about the cast, story, and release date. Jeanne Du Barry is Johnny Depp’s big return to acting since his highly publicized defamation trial against his ex-wife Amber Heard. The film, also titled La Favorite, sees Johnny Depp tackle yet another historical figure’s life after his notable portrayals of J.M. Barrie, John Dillinger, Ed Wood, Donnie Brasco, and John Wilmot.

Jeanne Du Barry is directed by Maïwenn, who previously helmed French films like DNA, Mon Roi, and Polisse. The movie will transport audiences back to France in the 18th century, where the real-life relationship between Johnny Depp’s King Louis XV and his favorite mistress Madame du Barry, is explored. Barry wasn’t well-liked at the king’s court, with famous royalty like Marie Antoinette – who married the king’s grandson – describing her as a scandalous figure. While the period drama will likely focus on her relationship with Johnny Depp’s character, Madame du Barry was notable for her continued controversies after the king’s death and well into the French Revolution.

Here’s everything we know about Jeanne Du Barry, including who else stars in the biopic, the true story of Depp’s character, and when it will be released.

King Louis XV, who ruled from 1715 until his death in 1774, was the last king of France before the French Revolution, which began under the reign of his grandson Louis XVI and his wife, Marie Antoinette. Johnny Depp’s character was notable for his largely ineffective rule, which led the nation to financial ruin, and was remembered for frequent accusations of corruption. The Jeanne Du Barry figure was also noted for his many mistresses, with the title character being known as his final paramour.

Jeanne Du Barry Release Date Prediction

Johnny Depp next movie Jeanne du Barry

Jeanne Du Barry is slated to be released in French theaters in 2023, but the exact month hasn’t been confirmed. The movie is still filming throughout the summer, so the Johnny Depp movie can be expected to premiere in the spring of 2023 at the earliest. Jeanne Du Barry will release on Netflix France 15 months after its theatrical premiere, so it is predicted to drop on the service toward the end of 2024. The French horror film Titane was released in French theaters in July 2021 before being distributed in the US in October, so if Jeanne Du Barry follows a similar model, it could arrive in the US around summer 2023.

‘I am officially off the market’: When Margot Robbie revealed she made the ‘conscious’ decision of not dating actors

Margot Robbie revealed her decision to not date actors because of the media scrutiny that came with a public relationship of two high-profile actors
Back in 2015, A-lister Margot Robbie made a declaration that she would not be dating any actors. The actress may have alluded to her fiance Tom Ackerley, who she married the following year in 2016. In an exclusive interview with Marie Claire, she revealed that being in a relationship as an actor herself came with its own set of challenges. She believed that dating someone who was popular would add on to the media scrutiny.

Margot Robbie opened up on why she made a conscious decision to not date actorsTalking to Marie Claire, she claimed, “I am officially off the market.” She then shared the reasoning behind her decision and added, “I made a conscious decision not to date actors.” She continued to explain, “But not because I hate actors. That’s a nasty generalization to make, and that’s not the case. People take such an interest in your love life when you have a profile, it puts a lot of stress on a relationship.”
The Barbie actress continued, “So two people with profiles, I figure it’s just double the amount of scrutiny, and I’d like to avoid that at all costs.” This came after reports of her locking lips with Tarzan co-star Alexander Skarsgard started making rounds. It was reported that she was caught kissing the actor during the Sundance Film Festival.

Margot Robbie revealed she opted for a minimal lifestyle even after becoming an actorIn the interview, Robbie also opened up about how she was adapting to fame. She shared, “I have a normal 24-year-old life. If I were a waitress, I’d probably have the exact same lifestyle. I’d go to the same clubs I go to already, live in the same house with the same housemates, hang out with the same people.”
However, Margot Robbie tied the knot with Tom Ackerley who is an English producer and actor. The duo met on the sets of 2013 movie Suite Francaise where Tom was working as an assistant director. Post marriage, both of them launched their production company LuckyChap Entertainment.

‘Rocky’ Was Quite Different In His Original Screenplay, Sylvester Stallone Claims

Sylvester Stallone took his friend’s advice on a rewrite of the original screenplay to Rocky. A few tweaks later, he was on his way to major success.
In the new Netflix documentary Sly, Stallone discussed how he initially conceived of the project, which had a much harder edge. In the early version, Rocky was depicted as a “thuggish” character, inspired by Martin Scorsese’s crime drama, Mean Streets.

But Stallone’s perspective changed when a friend read the script and thought the boxer was too cruel for audiences to actually care about him.
Stallone recalled her crying.

“She goes, ‘I hate Rocky. I hate him. He’s cruel. He hits people. He beats them up.’”
Stallone took it to heart, and asked what he could do to soften the character.

“I said, ‘what if you stop short of it?’ Like, maybe he almost did. He could have, that’s his job, but he doesn’t?’ ‘That’d be nice,’” he added. “I said, ‘What if he had a girlfriend or something?’ ‘Yeah, that’s nice.’ So I go back, start writing that: ‘Girlfriend. Nice.’”
$117 million in box office later, a franchise was born.

Stallone also revealed that actor Dolph Lundgren sent him to the hospital during one fight scene in Rocky IV.
“Dolph Lundgren… he pulverized me,” Stallone says in the documentary. “Later that night, my heart started to swell—which happens when the heart hits the chest—and then my blood pressure went up to 260, and they thought I was going to be talking to angels. Next thing I know, I’m in intensive care, where I’m surrounded by nuns, and I thought, ‘OK, that’s curtains.’”
Stallone was in the hospital for nine days following the incident, praying for “one more round.”
“For the first minute of the fight, it is going to be a free-for-all,” Stallone told Lundgren. The Swedish actor joked in a separate interview that all he did was “obey orders,” explaining, “[Stallone] was the boss. I did what he told me.”
Doctors allegedly told Stallone that he received a blow to the ribs that made his heart rattle around in his ribcage, a condition typically seen in head-on collisions. “I did hit a bus, of sorts,” Stallone joked.
