Johnny Depp Is Launching a U.K.-Based Production Company

Johnny Depp Is Launching a U.K.-Based Production Company

Johnny Depp is starting a new venture.

The actor announced the launch of a new development fund for movie and television projects, headed by his own IN.2 Films and Adolfo Blanco’s A Contracorriente Films in Spain, he announced in a press conference at the 2021 San Sebastian Film Festival via Variety.

IN.2 is Johnny‘s new U.K.-based production house, and a sister company to his L.A.-based Infinitum Nihil. The company is seeking original, stage and literature-based scripts for film, stage and television productions “focusing on European sensibility combined with American accessibility.”

Producers Stephen Deuters and Stephen Malit are also joining as co-heads.

“From the student to the maestro, from the aspiring artists to the yet-knowns, to the well-established great masters across all forms of modern media, IN.2 will build a space where artists can be artists, where they will be free to create those unexpected moments, those happy accidents that contain the propensity to constitute great art and so bring their unique vision to life,” he said in a press release.

Johnny added that he spent “many years working inside and outside of the Hollywood system and trying to persuade them that not every outing needs to be a blockbuster, that they don’t need to be formulaic, commercial drivel. It’s ludicrous to play everything safe. Cinema audiences are getting bored,” he said.

The company is planning new projects they hope to have ready between 2022-2023 with Julien Temple, who directed Crock of Gold: A Few Rounds with Shane MacGowan, as well as with producer Jelena Goldback and London-based producer Alexandra Stone.

He also made headlines for his comments about cancel culture.

Billy Eichner's New Movie 'Bros' Will Make History With an All-LGBTQ+ Cast

Billy Eichner's New Movie 'Bros' Will Make History With an All-LGBTQ+ Cast

The cast of the upcoming movie Bros has been announced and the film will be making history as the first major studio film to feature an all-LGBTQ+ principal cast.

The movie will star Billy Eichner in the lead role and he also co-wrote the script with Nicholas Stoller, who will direct the movie.

The movie is about “two gay men maybe, possibly, probably, stumbling towards love. Maybe. They’re both very busy.”

“I could not be more proud or excited about the historic nature of the all openly LGBTQ+ cast of Bros. After queer actors have spent decades watching straight actors capitalize both artistically and professionally by playing LGBTQ+ characters, it is a long overdue dream come true to be able to assemble this remarkable, hilarious cast,” Billy said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.

He continued, “And while Bros may be the first of its kind in several ways, my real hope is that it is only the first of many opportunities for openly LGBTQ+ ensembles to shine and show the world all we are capable of as actors, beyond just being the wacky sidekick, token queer or a straight movie star’s ‘gay best friend.’ And beyond all of that, this cast is fucking hysterical and you’re going to love them.”

Some of the LGBTQ+ actors will be playing heterosexual roles in the film.
