Johnny Depp has teamed up with cryptocurrency-centric social entertainment platform TaTaTu, founded by Andrea Iervolino.
According to the agreement, the two sides will produce film and digital content. All content produced under the agreement to be released through the Depp’s Infinitum Nihil production banner.
The partnership moves forward a relationship between Johnny Depp and Andrea Iervolino that began with Waiting for the Barbarians, the adaptation of the J.M. Coetzee award-winning novel that begins shooting later in October in Morocco.
“Johnny has the ability to conceptualize material in a way that few can, and is unburdened of conventional industry formulas that dictate the projects that get made, traditionally,” Iervolino told.
In May, TaTaTu team announced plans to create a blockchain platform for film fans. This summer the company ICO raised 575 million dollars, having conducted the third largest campaign. Prince Felix of Luxembourg and BlockTower Capital are among the investors. TaTaTu is working on a Lamborghini biopic to star Antonio Banderas and Alec Baldwin; an original documentary on two-time Jeremy Renner; and a Jim Caviezel and Mira Sorvino film titled The Sound of Freedom.
