The action comedy also stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor, Paul Bettany and Olivia Munn.

Lionsgate and OddLot Entertainment will open Johnny Depp's Mortdecai on Feb. 6, 2015.

News of the release date comes amid dismal news for Depp's latest film, Transcendence. The $100 million sci-fi epic opened to $11 million last weekend in North America, marking the third big-budget disappointment in a row for the actor.

Mortdecai, costing far less to make, stars Depp opposite Ewan McGregor, Gwyneth Paltrow, Olivia Munn and Paul Bettany. Directed by David Koepp, the action comedy stars Depp as a rakish art dealer on the run from the Russian mob.

The movie is the first film to be distributed by Lionsgate via its new deal with OddLot, which produced Mortdecai alongside Depp's company An Infinitum and Mad Chance.

Mortdecai opens opposite Liam Neeson action movie Run All Night and fantasy epic Seventh Son, starring Jeff Bridges and Julianne Moore.
