MGM Says New Johnny Depp Film Still Awaiting Release After Director Claims Studio Is Burying It



“Minamata” director Andrew Levitas has sent a letter to MGM condemning the studio for allegedly burying his historical drama because it stars Johnny Depp.

“MGM had decided to ‘bury the film because MGM was concerned about the possibility that the personal issues of an actor in the film could reflect negatively upon them and that from MGM’s perspective the victims and their families were secondary to this.”

The film was picked up by MGM’s relaunched American International Pictures last fall after world premiering in February 2020 at the Berlin International Film Festival. 

MGM said the film is not buried and is just waiting for a release date.
The film initially had a day-and-date push set for February 2021 but did not get released.
