Johnny Depp, Amber Heard to Reunite on Big Screen in Thriller London Fields
Johnny and Amber, together again -- on the big screen! Johnny Depp, 50, will make a cameo in London Fields, an upcoming thriller starring his 27-year-old girlfriend Amber Heard.
The crime thriller, based on the 1989 novel by Martin Amis, started filming in September in London. The plot follows a terminally-ill ex-pat, played by Billy Bob Thornton, who meets a psychic named Nicola Six (Heard) at a seedy London bar. Nicola, who knows she will be murdered before her upcoming birthday, begins a torrid love affair with three different men-- one of whom is her killer. Theo James and Jim Sturgess will costar in the film.
Although Depp's role in the movie remains unknown, sources told The Hollywood Reporter that the Pirates of the Caribbean actor has already filmed his scenes during short breaks from other in-production films, the big screen-adaptation of Into the Woods and Mortdecai.
Just last Thursday, Oct. 24, Heard and Depp were spotted together, for the first time since July, enjoying dinner in London's Mayfair District. Heard, who recently commented on her love life to Net-A-Porter's The Edit, said, "I have had relationships, successful relationships, with men, and I had a great relationship with a wonderful woman." (The bisexual actress dated Tasya van Ree from 2008 to 2012.) She added, "We all love who we love; we don't choose it."
The stunning star and Depp first met on the set of 2011 film, The Rum Diary. They confirmed their relationship in June 2012 shortly after Depp and the mother of his two children Vanessa Paradis ended their 14-year relationship.
The Hollywood heartthrob shared some insight on the split with Rolling Stone in June: "Relationships are very difficult. Especially in the racket that I'm in because you're constantly away or they're away and so it's hard." A source told Us Weekly that once Heard wraps up filming, she plans to stay in London with Depp, who commences filming his other projects in mid-December.
