‘Themes such as gender and race equality and environmental protection’ will be presented in a way that ‘will promote positive messaging,’ according to a statement from Iervolino.  

Depp had previously claimed he is a victim of cancel culture, warning that ‘no one is safe’ and urging those affected to ‘stand up’ for themselves. 

Speaking in the Spanish city of San Sebastian, before accepting an honorary award at the film festival last month, he said the situation had become ‘so out of hand.’

In July 2020, he lost a high-profile case at the High Court in London, after The Sun newspaper described him as a ‘wife beater’ and he sued.

His ex-wife Amber Heard filed for divorce in 2016, accusing him of verbal and physical abuse, and she testified in London.

Depp lost his lucrative role in the Fantastic Beasts franchise in the aftermath of the case. 

Speaking at the festival last month, Depp said:  ‘It can be seen as an event in history that lasted for however long it lasted, this cancel culture, this instant rush to judgement based on what essentially amounts to polluted air.

‘It’s so far out of hand now that I can promise you that no one is safe. Not one of you. No one out that door. No one is safe. It takes one sentence and there’s no more ground, the carpet has been pulled. 

‘It’s not just me that this has happened to, it’s happened to a lot of people. This type of thing has happened to women, men.

‘It doesn’t matter if a judgement, per se, has taken some artistic license. When there’s an injustice, whether it’s against you or someone you love, or someone you believe in – stand up, don’t sit down. Cause they need you.’

Back in the U.S., Depp has recently won the right to proceed with a $50 million defamation lawsuit against Heard.

In August, a Virginia judge ruled that he can proceed with the litigation, based on a 2018 Washington Post op-ed she wrote saying she was a domestic violence survivor.

She did not mention Depp in the story, though she publicly accused him of abusing her in their 2016 split.

The actor is trying to clear his name after losing a defamation suit against The Sun.

His U.S. suit, filed in Fairfax County, Virginia, accuses Heard of creating a ‘hoax’ account of abuse.

Heard had requested the libel suit against her, filed in March 2019, be thrown out, claiming the ruling in the UK case should swing any new cases in her favor because they both relate to domestic abuse allegations against Depp.

But Judge Penny Azcarate ruled the statements made by The Sun and Heard were ‘inherently different’, and said the case should proceed.

The ruling stated: ‘The Sun’s interests were based on whether the statements the newspaper published were false.

‘[Heard’s] interests relate to whether the statements she published were false.’

The ruling also noted that Depp filed the defamation suit against The Sun before Heard’s op-ed was published – and that she was not named in the case against the British paper.

In the December 2018 op-ed, the actress wrote: ‘I became a public figure representing domestic abuse, and I felt the full force of our culture’s wrath for women who speak out.’

The UK’s High Court ruled against Depp following an explosive three-week trial last July, finding allegations the actor was a ‘wife beater’ were ‘substantially true.’

Lawyers for The Pirates of the Caribbean star had asked two Court of Appeal judges to grant permission for him to challenge the ruling, with the aim of having its findings overturned and a second trial ordered.

They claimed the judge in Depp’s initial libel trial had not ‘factually’ considered all the allegations of violence against him and that they had ‘fresh evidence’ Heard had ‘lied’ about giving her entire $7 million divorce settlement to charity.

They said that the charity claim influenced how her testimony was viewed, but the Court of Appeal ruled that it did not have an impact on the judge and that he would have reached the same conclusion on Heard being the victim of domestic violence.
