Johnny Depp has signed on to star in the indie film RICHARD SAYS GOODBYE to be directed by Wayne Roberts. This will be only Roberts second film and is a follow up to his debut film KATIE SAYS GOOD BYE.
In the comedy drama Johnny Depp plays a college professor who receives some bad health news. Wayne Roberts is not saying what the bad news is; but one can assume that it is a terminal illness because it causes Depp’s character to go on a drug and alcohol binge.
The film is being presented to buyers at The Cannes Film Festival. It is being financed by M Global and being produced by Greg Shapiro and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones.
