DEPP And PARADIS To Star As Literary Lovers?

By on 6 September, 2010

French actress/singer Vanessa Paradis has confirmed she and long-time partner Johnny Depp are in talks to play Simone de Beauvoir and her lover Nelson Algren in a racy new movie.

The Joe Le Taxi songstress has been ear-marked to play the late writer/feminist in ‘My American Lover‘ for some time and now she admits the father of her two children is on-board to play Algren.

Paradis and Depp have not as yet officially worked together, although they were cast in Terry Gilliam‘s doomed ‘Don Quixote‘ movie before the production fell apart over a decade ago.

And now the actress admits the time may be right for her to partner with her real-life boyfriend in a movie.

Speaking to WENN, she states:

“They’re still writing the script but the idea would be amazing because it’s such a beautiful story. You only know when you’re really actually shooting.

“We’ve had plenty of opportunities to work together but I don’t know that I could do it; keep a straight face in front of him… It’s something that we don’t look for, otherwise it would’ve happened many times.

“My American Lover came along and it might happen just because the story is great and why not if we can, but we don’t push things. Playing in front of one of the best actors in the world that we have and someone I know so well will be challenging. That’s why we don’t run after it. But I don’t know… why not?”
