By  | 

Oscar® nominee Johnny Depp (2007, Best Actor, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street) stars in the hilarious and heartwarming dark comedy The Professor, arriving on Blu-ray™ (plus Digital), DVD, and Digital July 9 from Lionsgate. This film is currently available On Demand. Depp plays a college professor who decides to live his last chapter with reckless abandon after being diagnosed with a terminal illness alongside A-list costars Rosemarie DeWitt, Zoey Deutch, and Golden Globe® nominee Ron Livingston (2002, Best Supporting Actor, TV’s Band of Brothers). Produced by Oscar®-winner Greg Shapiro (2008, Best Picture, The Hurt Locker;  with producers Kathryn Bigelow, Mark  Boal, and Nicolas Chartier), Braden Aftergood (Hell or High Water), and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (Midnight Special), and written and directed by Wayne Roberts, this rogueishly humorous and touching film is not to be missed!. The Professor Blu-ray and DVD will include a making-of featurette and will be available for the suggested retail price of $21.99 and $19.98, respectively.

Johnny Depp delivers a wickedly funny performance as Richard, a buttoned-down college lecturer who, after learning he has six months to live, transforms into a rebellious party animal. To the shock of his wife (Roasmarie DeWitt) and school chancellor (Ron Livingston) — and the delight of his students — Richard leads a hilarious crusade against authority and hypocrisy in this dark comedy costarring Zoey Deutch.
