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 Kromolowski, the 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.

It sounds a wonderful project
I am excited to see a movie about Modigliani.
I am so excited for him 😍
Modigliani had a very sad life but produced some spectacular works of art. It is because of him that I am an artist, fell in love with his portraits of women when I was in Kinergarten and saw a book with their images.
I can’t wait ..
Love this idea. Watched Andy Garcia as Modigliani. Brilliant. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
Sounds interesting hope it gets the attention it deserves.
Wow! What a great move! Wonderfully tragic but beautiful story. Amazing. Definitely a Depp interest.
