Depp, Paradis Share An “American Dream”

Real-life couple Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis will team for Lasse Hallstrom’s “My American Dream” says Bang Showbiz.

Paradis stars as 20th century French feminist Simone de Beauvoir, a writer and philosopher famous for her treatise The Second Sex which looked at women’s oppression and contemporary feminism.

de Beauvoir also had an open relationship with existentialist philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre and traversed through Latin America with macho writer Nelson Algren (Depp) in the late 40’s.

Depp is wouldn’t be filming the project until after he wraps his work on both “The Tourist” and “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”.
