Johnny Depp’s Production Company Signs First Feature Film Deal

June 14, 2017


Johnny Depp’s production company Infinitum Nihil have signed a first look feature film deal with IM Global. The company is run by an executive team of Depp, Christi Dembrowki, Sam Sakar and Stephen Deuters.

Stuart Ford, IM Global Founder and CEO said:

“Johnny is of course a globally recognized superstar but, as importantly, we at IM Global love Infinitum Nihil’s idiosyncratic and taste-driven view of the movie-making world and the unique brand that Johnny, Christi and their team have developed. We’re building this relationship in order to regenerate great movies for the global audience with a like-minded creative partner, and with IM Global’s reputation as a company that has enjoyed frequent success green lightning bold films outside of the confines of the major studio system I feel certain that our newly extended filmmaking partnership with Infinitum Nihil will be a fruitful one.”

This deal was negotiated before the recent Cannes sFilm Festival and IM Global will finance and co-produce Depp’s next film, Richard Says Goodbye. This comedy drama is written and will be directed by Wayne Roberts. Production is set to start this summer, with Brian Kanavaugh-Jones of Automatik producing alongside IM Global President of Production Greg Shapiro, and with Ford and Depp executive producing.

IM Global’s relationship with the production company began last year when IM Global Television announced that it was developing a music-driven television drama series about the legendary Muscle Shoals recording studio based on Rick Hall’s autobiography “The Man From Muscle Shoals: My Journey from Shame to Fame”, with Infinitum Nihil as producers and Sir Richard Branson’s Virgin Produced.

After shooting Richard Says Goodbye, Depp will reprise his role as the Dark Wizard Grindelwald in J.K Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2. He will also star next in the crime thriller LAbyrinth for Open Road, as a detective who investigates the Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. murders, and 20th Century FOX’s Murder on the Orient Express directed by Kenneth Branagh.
