Possible Canadian release for THE LIBERTINE in early August!

Canadians Zoners may get to see Johnny Depp’s performance as the devastatingly debauched Earl of Rochester this August! Intodadepps reports the Tribute.ca site lists a release date of August 6, 2005 for THE LIBERTINE. This is the first actual release date, as opposed to a whispered month or season, the Zone has heard since THE LIBERTINE’s original UK release was canceled last October. You can see the Tribute listing HERE.

This information supports what Reemi noticed in a Chicago Sun Times article on THE LIBERTINE’s playwright and screenwriter, Stephen Jeffreys. Jeffreys’ new play, LOST LAND, just opened at the Steppenwolf in Chicago and also stars John Malkovich. The article says, “Jeffreys [. . .]also wrote the screenplay for the feature film version of THE LIBERTINE, which is set for a fall release and stars Johnny Depp as Rochester, with Malkovich playing the role of the older King Charles II.” You can read the article on Stephen Jeffreys and his new play HERE. Thanks, intodadepps and Reemi, for bringing us good news about THE LIBERTINE.
