Johnny Depp will star in the comedy-drama Richard Says Goodbye with Wayne Roberts directing from his own script.
Stuart Fords IM Global is fully-financing the project and is launching sales at the Cannes Film Festival, which opens May 17. CAA is representing domestic rights.
Depp will portray the titular Richard a college professor who is given a life-changing diagnosis and then decides to throw all pretense and conventions to the wind and live his life as boldly and freely as possible. He smokes, drinks, has sex, and insults anyone who annoys him.
