If you have managed to lose track of the saga that is Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s relationship breakdown, then you’re in luck. Discovery+ is making a documentary that will explore the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard scandal in great detail. And it’s going to go into great detail, unlike any other news piece. It will be a two-part documentary, titled ‘Johnny Vs Amber’.
Johnny Vs Amber is going to be a two-part documentary from All3Media indie Optomen. It will explore the entire case from the perspective of both sides involved in the scandal. It will first introduce the viewer to Johnny Depp’s side, explaining how he felt at the time of the marriage. He reveals how Heard is a “Machiavellian liar” going to any length to protect her image.
On the other hand, Amber Heard’s episode would focus on how she felt at the time of her marriage. She initially thought she married the man of her dreams, but he turned out to be a “violent drug-fueled monster”. Moreover, the documentary will also include interviews of lawyers from both sides of the case. It will also have archive and video footage related to the case, along with interviews of people close to Johnny Depp and Amber Heard.
Furthermore, Nick Hornby and Fran Baker will be serving as executive producers for Optomen, while Matt Reid will be doing the same for Discovery. Hornby had this to say about the documentary Johnny Vs Amber:
Through the tapes, home videos and text messages shown in court, these films give viewers a rare and important insight into a marriage that went tragically wrong, and to better understand the hugely important issue of domestic violence.
How Johnny Depp’s scandal with Amber Heard has impacted his career
After losing his libel case in the UK to Sun, who called him a “woman-beater”, Johnny Depp has lost several projects. This includes his resignation from the Fantastic Beasts franchise. Since then, he has received support from several fans, but has mostly addressed how his career has been affected after being “cancelled”. He has revealed that Hollywood is actively “boycotting” him and that “no one is safe from Cancel Culture”. Depp further asked fans to “stand up” against “injustice” saying:
It’s so far out of hand now that I can promise you that no one is safe. Not one of you. No one out that door. No one is safe. It takes one sentence and there’s no more ground, the carpet has been pulled. It’s not just me that this has happened to, it’s happened to a lot of people. This type of thing has happened to women, men. Sadly at a certain point, they begin to think that it’s normal. Or that it’s them. When it’s not… It doesn’t matter if a judgment, per se, has taken some artistic license. When there’s an injustice, whether it’s against you or someone you love, or someone you believe in – stand up, don’t sit down. ‘Cause they need you.
