Johnny Depp has officially locked himself in for the big screen adaptation of Dark Shadows with his best friend in the whole wide world Tim Burton directing. Filming has been slated for April, which means it’s a big no can do from Depp to Snow White and the Huntsman.
Dame Judi Dench has signed on for a cameo in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. Not surprisingly, Latino Review is reporting that Dame Judi will play a noblewoman.
With Tom Hardy's dance card being full doing awesome movies like The Dark Knight Rises and paycheck movies like This Means War, he won't be able to take the lead role in Snow White And The Huntsman as rumored. Which is okay because an official offer didn't go out to him.
Johnny Depp is being courted for the role of the Huntsman, who goes against orders to kill Snow White and instead trains her to fight and survive. Dude, if I were the Evil Queen, I'd seriously dock his pay for that. He had ONE task! This is all contingent on whether Tim Burton decides to do Dark Shadows or not. It's a well-known fact that Tim Burton owns Johnny Depp. He stores him in a case next to Bela Lugosi's fingernail clippings.
Nobody has been cast as Snow White yet. It's reported that the producers want a fresh face for this. But how cool would it be if the leads went to Natalie Portman and Jean Reno? (The Wrap)
Johnny Depp made one little British girl's dreams come true when he showed up at her school in full Captain Jack Sparrow wardrobe to help her murder her teachers. Break it down fo' me, Daily Mail:
The star is currently in south-east London filming the fourth Pirates Of The Caribbean movie On Stranger Tides and arrived at the Meridian Primary School dressed in full character as Captain Jack Sparrow.
He made the one-off trip after nine-year-old pupil Beatrice Delap wrote to the star asking for help staging a ‘mutiny’ against the teachers.
The school was told just ten minutes before that Depp would be arriving and two blacked-out cars swept through the school gates.
Beatrice revealed what she had written in the letter to the star – or rather his salty seadog alter ego.
She said: ‘Captain Jack Sparrow, At Meridian Primary School, we are a bunch of budding young pirates. Normally we’re a right handful, but we’re having a bit of trouble mutiny-ing against the teachers! We’d love if you could come and help.
‘Beatrice Delap, aged nine, a budding pirate.’
She said that she was then asked by the star to make herself known from the assembled pupils once he arrived, and gave her a cuddle. Beatrice marvelled: ‘He gave me a hug and he said, “Maybe we shouldn’t mutiny today ‘cos there are police outside monitoring me.”‘
Ten minutes warning?!? That's hardly any time to prepa– oh my God!! He's Here now!! Hi Johnny, how are you? …. Oh, now he's jumping out the window. What a weirdo.
The Tourist hits theaters on December 10th, but the film’s trailer hits your face in about 20 seconds. Staring Johnny Depp as the titular tourist and Angelina Jolie as what…
Gore Verbinski has his sights on Tim Burton's Guinness World Record. The director has teamed with Johnny Depp on three Pirates Of The Caribbean films as well as the animated Rango. Now, there are rumors that they'll work together again with Verbinski helming Depp's upcoming The Lone Ranger.
Nothing official has been announced, but it's believed this news leaked in advance of Disney's big press event later this week. If true, this is sure to upset the execs over at the Mouse House. They rented all those chairs and everything. Just great. (Deadline)
The first trailer for The Tourist starring Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie and directed by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck (use a acronym, dude) is up. The remake of the French film Anthony Zimmer stars Depp as a bumbling American who becomes embroiled in a plot to blah, blah, blah. Angelina Jolie co-stars as a spy for the eleventy-billionth time in her career, and does her best Gemma Arterton impression. Also, there is tango dancing. It's mandatory that spies tango.

In 3D, you could smell the rum.
Right after the Tron Legacy panel at Comic-Con, Disney screened a teaser trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. It basically features Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow letting everyone know that the movie is a thing and they can see it next summer. It was in 3D only so Capt. Jack could awkwardly shove a bottle of rum into the mostly underage audience. I took an imaginary swig, but imagine all those tween alcoholics in attendence. The 3D must have been torture for them.

Depp and Burton are the next Sad Keanus.The days of nobody knowing what the hell Tim Burton is directing next have come to an end. Dark Shadows starring Johnny Depp (and probably Helena Bonham Carter) will be inked in next to sketches of mawkish bats in the director's day planner. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter author Seth Grahame-Smith is taking over scripting duties from long-time Burton collaborater John August, to adapt the spooky 1960's soap opera. Filming begins in February with Johnny Depp playing the vampire Barnabas Collins. We'll keep you updated on which goofy wig he'll end up in this time. (Deadline)
Depp and Burton are the next Sad Keanus.
I recently posted a faaaaar out teaser for Rango which turned out to be a teaser for the website. Now Paramount has released the official trailer. The film stars Johnny Depp as a Hunter S. Thompson look-a-like chameleon with an identity crisis. The trailer has me just as baffled as the Inception trailer. Screenwriter John Logan might have been tripping off computer duster whippets while pounding away at this adventure. Ideas don't just come out on their own, right John? **Whoosh of air** Rango is directed by Gore Verbinski, who did the awesome Mousehunt, as well as those Caribbean Pirates movies. Befriending and/or beguiling Depp in the film are Isla Fisher, Alfred Molina, Timothy Olyphant, and Bill Nighy. Rango scampers into theaters March 18, 2011. Check out the trailer after the jump…
Yeah, uhhhhhh, here's the teaser trailer for Rango? Directed by Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean, The Ring), it's tells the story of a chameleon with an identity crisis. I guess he's a fish in this teaser that does more confusing than teasing. However, the best women of the night have both down to such an art that a John usually can't tell the difference. So maybe this teaser is just like a skilled prostitute. Or Hunter S. Thompson's wet dream. The film stars the voice talents of Johnny Depp, Isla Fisher, Abigail Breslin, Bill Nighy, Stephen Root, Ray Winstone, Beth Grant, Ned Beatty, Harry Dean Stanton, and Alfred Molina. But you won't hear any of them in the teaser. That's the tease. Are you titillated? Check out the teaser for Rango after the jump.
This is one of those "very special episodes."Rumors of a 21 Jump Street movie have been flying around the internet for over a year now, and we're all looking for some concrete answers.

Let's thank the Internet for this nightmare image.Disney has given Ian McShane the executive order to stop shaving. Deadwood's pimp and murderer has been selected to portray the notorious pirate Blackbeard in Rob Marshall's Pirates of the Caribbean 4: On Stranger Tides. It's time to celebrate. Open the f*ckin' canned peaches!If McShane signs on, he'll be squaring off against Johnny Depp's Captain Jack Sparrow as he slurs and mumbles and gets slapped by women while trying to find the Fountain of Youth. Penelope Cruz has also joined the cast recently as Depp's atractivo sexualmente foil (translation: corset boobs). With these two casting additions, this could be a film to look forward to. Richardson has given it his seal of approval. (THR)
Good God, Johnny Depp, what is wrong with you? Looks like Mama took a bottle of her happy pills and put on some makeup for her rendez-vous with Death. Aces, Tim Burton! You've officially put your stamp on one of the most beloved stories of all time and turned it into a Disney film that's sure to have kids pissing all over their Mickey Mouse bedsheets.

Though he’s played a wide variety of roles over the course of his career, and is set to play the hardboiled John Dillinger in the upcoming Public Enemies, Johnny Depp has shown himself to be an actor of idiosyncratic but undeniably odd taste in roles. Oh sure, he can do the Oscar-winning drama just as well as anybody (Finding Neverland, Donnie Brasco), but he just can’t seem to stay away from roles that send shivers down people’s spine or cause audiences to say, “WTF?” (Or for that matter make movies these days that don’t have Tim Burton’s name attached to them.)
