See The First Look At Johnny Depp As King Louis XV In His First Post-Trial Movie

After Johnny Depp was embroiled in a highly-public defamation lawsuit with his ex-wife Amber Heard earlier this year, which included claims of abuse against him, the trial’s verdict played in Depp’s favor. Just two months following this, the actor is back filming a movie in France called Jeanne Du Barry and we have a first look at him as King Louis XV. 

The film, which will be directed by French filmmaker and actress Maïwenn, will see Johnny Depp playing the famed king of France, who was later guillotined alongside his queen Marie-Antoinette on charges of counterrevolution. Check out Depp as King Louis XV:

Jeanne Du Barry will focus on the life of Jeanne Bécu (played by Maïwenn), who has a rags to riches story that takes her from being the illegitimate daughter of a poor seamstress to rising through the ranks of Louis XV’s court and becoming King Louis’ last official mistress. The movie which marks Depp’s first feature film role in three years began shooting a couple weeks ago and is set to continue rolling cameras into early October, per Deadline

The film is going to be in French, which Johnny Depp can speak fluently. In fact, the mother to his two children Vanessa Paradis is a French model, actress and singer, and the pair have raised their children to be bilingual, speaking both English and French. Previously, the actor made a cameo in the 2004 French film Happily Ever After where he spoke French, but Jeanne Du Barry marks a rare time of Depp going outside Hollywood to make a movie.
