After their upcoming film’s world premiere at the 69th Taormina Film Festival in Italy, director Conor Allyn joined People to talk about Amber Heard’s future career. In the interview, he reflected on whether this film was a great comeback for the actress.
Saying Heard has many opportunities on the horizon, Allyn said the following about the actress’ appearance in the film:
“Amber has an incredibly bright future ahead. I think ‘In the Fire‘ showcases her talents as an actor. I know this is something she is very proud of, and it’s something we are very excited to release to the public.”
As the director says, ‘In the Fire’ was Heard’s chance to move away from the Johnny Depp lawsuit:
“I think it will be a great opportunity for her to have something beyond the trial and stuff to talk about and to be a platform for a hell of a comeback.”
‘In The Fire’ is a supernatural thriller set in the 1980s, where Heard plays a psychiatrist who investigates a disturbing case. According to Heard’s Instagram post, filming for the movie was completed in March 2022, months before the defamation trial began.
