Johnny Depp lands first major film role in three years!
Los Angeles, California - A first look at Johnny Depp's upcoming role as King Louis XV has been unveiled in a teaser.
Directed by Maïwenn, the drama follows the life of the final royal mistress of Louis XV at the Court of Versailles after Madame de Pompadour.
His role as the controversial historical figure is the Pirates of the Caribbean star's first major film in three years.
The 59-year-old actor's latest bouts with victory follows his bombshell defamation trial against his ex-wife, Amber Heard.
The exes duked it out in a Virginia court for six weeks over the DC star's 2018 op-ed for the Washington Post.
But the actor isn't completely out of the legal woods yet.
Depp will be back in court to face off with Heard once again over her appeal of the $10.5 million settlement awarded to him in their defamation case. He has also appealed on money owed to Heard.
