Depp (and Al Pacino) to direct Amedeo Modigliani film

Johnny is going to direct his first movie after “the Brave” 25 years ago, The Hollywood Reporter reports.

Johnny is set to get behind the camera for Modigliani, about Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani, and will co-produce alongside Al Pacino and Barry Navidi.

Based on the play by Dennis McIntyre and adapted for the screen by Jerzy and Mary Kromolowskithe film will tell the story of the painter and sculptor in Paris in 1916. Production is set to start in Europe in the spring of 2023, with casting to be revealed shortly.

The saga of Mr. Modigliani’s life is one that I’m incredibly honored, and truly humbled, to bring to the screen. It was a life of great hardship, but eventual triumph — a universally human story all viewers can identify with.

said Depp, who produces for IN.2, the European arm of his production company Infinitum Nihil.

Robert Downey Jr. Wants Johnny Depp in Sherlock Holmes 3

According to recent news by Fandom Wire, there are some studios that are still interested in signing a contract with Johnny Depp. And big talks are going on about Johnny Depp might come ahead to sign the contract for Sherlock Holmes 3.

As wonderful as this thought is, yes, I’d really love to see the two together, this is probably not going to happen.

Warner Bros has already removed Johnny from a franchise (Fantastic Beasts 3), it’s unfortunately not Robert Downey Jr. is not the one who decides such things and there is no Sherlock Holmes 3 movie in the makes.

Till then, let’s just dream a bit, how wonderful it would be.

“I’ve always used art to express my feelings and to reflect on those who matter most to me, like my family, friends and people I admire. My paintings surround my life, but I kept them to myself and limited myself. No one should ever limit themselves.”

For Johnny Depp there has always been art. Before acting, and before music, art has always been an important outlet for his creativity. While his acting skills are obviously the foundation of his fame, the recent reception to his music with Hollywood Vampires has encouraged him, and emboldened him, to share his art.
