Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis will star in My American Dream, to be directed by Lasse Hallström. Depp and Paradis have been together for 12 years and have two kids. Hallström previously directed Depp in What's Eating Gilbert Grape and Chocolat.
Depp said that "Vanessa plays the French feminist Simone de Beauvoir and I play her lover Nelson Algren who is real macho." He's expected to make the film in 2011.
