After a resounding victory in a libel case, famed actor Johnny Depp is looking to rebuild his reputation and career.
59-year-old Johnny Depp was literally on the verge of finally losing his career and huge influence in the world of cinema. However, a sensation happened a few months ago – Depp managed to prove in court that all accusations against him of domestic violence, bullying of his ex-wife Amber Heard are completely false and slanderous. The actress's plan to earn solidly on the collapsed reputation of her ex-husband, accusing him of literally all the sins, failed miserably – during the trial, it turned out that Hurd never handed over the compensation after the divorce in the amount of $ 7 million to charity, although she said under oath that she had done so . In addition, she received a libel charge – she was ordered to pay Depp compensation for moral and material damage in the amount of almost $ 15 million.
After the trial, Johnny stated that that he is ready to forgive Amber this amount if she finally leaves him alone. But recently, Heard again filed a lawsuit against Depp and it looks like she will still have to pay the specified amount.
In six years of litigation, Johnny Depp has lost many of his iconic roles, including in the continuation of the franchises “Pirates of the Caribbean” and ” Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Gradually, he returns to big cinema – the other day it became known that he was filming in the film “The Favorite” directed by Mayvenn Le Besco, where he plays the role of King Louis XV. On the eve of Western publications reported that by the beginning of next year, Depp is preparing to shoot his own directorial project – it will be a biopic about the famous Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani. In Johnny's filmography, there is already one directorial work – this is the 1997 film “The Brave”, where Depp also starred in the title role.
