Date: 9th May 2017
Johnny Depp has signed on for the lead in Richard Says Goodbye, a comedy-drama from writer-director Wayne Roberts.
The film will see Depp as Richard, "a world-weary college professor who is given a life-changing diagnosis and then decides to throw all pretense and conventions to the wind and live his life as boldly and freely as possible. With a biting sense of humor, a reckless streak and a touch of madness, he binges through every vice: smoking, drinking, sex, and hurling blunt insults at anyone who annoys him, giving him more pleasure than he’s had in years."
Depp will next be seen reprising the role of Captain Jack Sparrow in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, and is also set to appear in the cast of Kenneth Branagh’s Agatha Christie adaptation Murder on the Orient Express.
