Depp Film Waiting for the Barbarians Concludes Production
Production has wrapped on "Waiting for the Barbarians", the film adaptation of the J.M. Coetzee novel by the same name. The film stars Academy Award® nominee Johnny Depp ("Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise), Academy Award® winner Mark Rylance ("Bridge of Spies," "Dunkirk," "Ready Player One") and Robert Pattinson ("The Twilight Saga", "Good Time," "The Lost City of Z").
"Waiting for the Barbarians" tells the story of the crisis of the conscience of the Magistrate (Rylance) - a loyal servant of the Empire working in a tiny frontier town. A warrant officer for the Empire, Mandel (Pattinson), is sent to replace the Magistrate's position after the Magistrate has been charged with treason - consorting with the barbarians. Johnny Depp plays the sinister Colonel Joll.
Ciro Guerra directed the project and the film was financed and produced by Andrea Iervolino's social entertainment platform TaTaTu. Alongside TaTaTu, the movie was produced by Iervolino and Monika Bacardi's AMBI Media Group, as well as Michael Fitzgerald and Olga Segura.
Production concluded in Rome after filming in Morocco.
