A two-part documentary about Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s marriage will debut.
For the past few years, the inner workings of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s marriage have been a source of curiosity, but it will all be disclosed in a new two-part documentary.
The marital problems of Johnny Depp and Amber Heard will be the subject of a new two-part documentary that will present both sides of the tale.
After domestic violence claims on both sides, their marriage saga has been a big topic for the past few years, with fans now gaining a clearer picture of what happened.
The documentary will be split into two parts, with the first concentrating on actor Johnny and the second on actress Amber.
For the past few years, Johnny, 58, and Amber, 35, have been involved in a judicial battle in which they have both disputed other other’s charges of domestic abuse.
According to Deadline, the series will be titled Johnny vs. Amber and will depict the story from both of their views.
Optomen, a production company, is in charge of the project, which will be broadcast on Discovery in the future (plus).
The documentary will use archival material as well as new interviews with people who know both parties as well as lawyers who have represented them in court.
“Through the tapes, home videos, and text messages produced in court, these films provide audiences a rare and vital look into a marriage that went horribly wrong, and to better understand the enormously important topic of domestic abuse,” executive producer Nick Hornby said of the documentary.
The legal struggle between the former couple has been going on since she filed for divorce in May 2016 after only 15 months of marriage.
She accused her spouse of domestic abuse shortly after filing for divorce and was able to obtain a temporary restraining order against him.
Johnny has categorically refuted the allegations, but he suffered a big setback in 2020 when a libel suit he launched against The Sun for calling him a “wife-beater” was dismissed.
After a High Court judge concluded that The Sun’s allegations were’substantially genuine,’ Johnny was ordered to pay £628,000 in legal fees.
He attempted to appeal the decision, but was unsuccessful in March.
Johnny is also suing Amber for libel after she claimed she was a victim of domestic violence in a Washington Post op-ed.
Amber counterclaimed against him, accusing him of attempting to harm her career, and the dispute between the two parties is still ongoing.
She has added photographs throughout their disagreement. The news is summarized by Brinkwire.
