Johnny Depp is worried about the delay in the release of his film “Manamata” and in theaters in the United States because he says that his legal problems should not be an obstacle in its release.
The troubled actor claimed that Hollywood was boycotting him for delaying the US release of his film, which is a real-life account of Minamata disease. The film deals with the mercury poisoning of Japanese coastal communities in the 1970s.
The film stars W. Eugenie Smith, a 58-year-old American photojournalist whose photography articles highlight the negative effects of poison on people in communities.
Talking about “Minamata”, Depp insisted that people have the right to watch the movie or not. He said that the film deserves to be watched regardless of his personal problems. Depp is on trial in Virginia next year on domestic abuse charges with his ex-wife, Amber Hard, which he has since vehemently denied. The allegations led to his expulsion as Warner Bros. ‘Grandfather’ in the “Fantastic Beasts” franchise.
“We saw these people in the blink of an eye and promised that we would not exploit them. That the film would be respectable. I am sure we have ended the bargaining, but those who come later Should also take care of themselves. ” In an interview with Times.
Some movies touch people. , The last number of years? “
“I’m moving to where I need to go to make it all up,” Depp said nervously.
“Manamata” premiered at the Berlin Film Festival in February last year. MGM was initially scheduled for “Day and Date Theater / VOD Release” in February 2021, after the film bought the North American rights. But the studio postponed it after initial claims that they decided to bury the film due to fears that Depp’s personal issues could have a negative effect on them. It is now under “TBA” for US release through American International Photography.
