Johnny Depp is getting back into movies.

Hollywood has wanted nothing to do with the 58-year-old since his legal troubles and scandal with ex Amber Heard. Instead, it looks like he's heading to France to make a new historical drama.

Johnny Depp's new comeback movie after scandal

Depp will star in a new movie about Louis XV, according to Deadline. He's teaming up with French director Maïwenn, who will co-star with Depp as the 18th-century French king.

Depp has had few roles in recent years. His last major movie was 2018's Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.

He played "Grindelwald" in the Harry Potter prequel series but resigned from the role amid his scandal. Mads Mikkelson has since taken over the part.

New Pirates of the Caribbean movies are also going ahead without the "Jack Sparrow" actor, despite fan outcry.

Depp's most recent film was Minimata, a well-received drama that nevertheless debuted to little fanfare in early 2020.

The actor has been a major name in "cancel culture" debates. Long one of Hollywood's top stars, Depp fell from grace after he split from Amber Heard.

Heard and Depp exchanged allegations of abuse, and Depp also launched a libel case — which he lost — against a UK tabloid that had called him a "wife beater."

The messy break-up, damaging allegations, and ill-fated lawsuit appeared to push Depp out of favour in Hollywood.

We'll see if the new film does any good for the once-popular star.
