The 46-year-old star and his long-term partner are to appear in the new movie which will be their first venture together, Contactmusic reported.
"It's in preparation. It's called My American Lover. Vanessa plays the French feminist Simone de Beauvoir and I play her lover Nelson Algren who is real macho," Depp said.
Simone de Beauvoir is a 20th century French writer and philosopher famous for her treatise The Second Sex, an analysis of women's oppression and contemporary feminism, and her open relationship with existentialist philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre.
Depp, who has been in a relationship with French singer-and-actress Vanessa for around 12 years and has two children with her, Lily Rose, ten, and Jack, seven is currently shooting The Tourist with Angelina Jolie and admits he is impressed by her talent.
"She's a nice woman. What she does she takes very seriously. I was really impressed by her and I'm thrilled to be working with her," Depp said.
Depp is also very excited about the next Pirates of the Caribbean film. The actor, who reprises his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in the fourth movie, Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, said, "I love Captain Jack. In the earlier films there were so many subplots that the audience and even I was sometimes confused. The next part is a lot of fun."
