Billy Bob Thornton and Jim Sturgess have also confirmed roles in the movie based on the Martin Amis novel, according to The Hollywood Reporter, but it is not yet known who they are playing.

Set in 1999 London, London Fields follows the story of a psychic (Heard), who has visions of her death and goes on a hunt in an attempt to track down her killer.

Shooting kicked off last month in the UK capital and it is believed Depp has already filmed his role after arriving in London for Rob Marshall’s adaptation of Into the Woods and Mortdecai.

Amis has adapted the screenplay along with Roberta Hanley, while Matthew Cullen is directing.

Muse Productions is producing alongside Demarest Films, Hero Entertainment and Geyer Kosinski’s Media Talent Group.
