Netflix refuses to back Johnny Depp's first film 'La Favorite’
Johnny Depp is getting ready to come back to the big screen in a French movie called La Favorite.
The most recent news says that Netflix is not helping to pay for the movie La Favorite, which stars Johnny Depp. However, it has been licenced to be shown on Netflix in France.
A person with knowledge of the situation also said that Netflix has since made it clear that it did not pay for or own the rights to the movie outside of France.
Pascal Caucheteux and Gregoire Sorlat's Why Not Productions are in charge of making the movie.
In the upcoming historical drama, Depp will play King Louis XV. He recently made headlines when he sued his ex-wife Amber Heard for libel, and the case has been in the news since.
The film should come out in French theatres in 2023. It will be directed by Maiwenn Le Besco.
