Aerosmith Discuss On How Johnny Wound Up On Backup Vocals
Johnny Depp is one of the only guys out there who seems to dispute that whole “jack of all trades, master of none” thing. The actor never makes a misstep, and the guys in Aerosmith agree.
While recording their latest album, “Music From Another Dimension“, Johnny recorded some backup vocals for the guys on the track “Freedom Fighter”. Aerosmith open up about how their collabo came about:
“[Depp] came down [to the studio] with one of his guitars and it got late, and it came time for the background vocals. We asked him if he’d sit around the microphone. He did and that’s how he ended up on the song.” Easy as that, folks. Just be Johnny Depp and the world is your oyster.
The star will also produce the live action feature inspired by the life of the classic children’s book author.
Oh, the places he’ll go! It’s almost too perfect: Johnny Depp as Dr. Seuss.
Illumination Entertainment and Infinitum Nihil are developing a live-action movie about the life of classic children’s author and illustrator Dr. Seuss (aka Theodor Geisel). Depp will produce the project with the potential to star as Seuss, and Universal Pictures will distribute. Keith Bunin (In Treatment) has been hired to write the screenplay.
Depp is producing with Infinitum Nihil partner Christi Dembrowski, Illumination’s Christopher Meledandri and David Kennedy.
With Depp already having brought to life the Mad Hatter, Peter Pan author J.M. Barrie and Willy Wonka, the iconic Seuss seems a great fit for his chameleonic personality and recent desire to make family films. While producers say that the film is unlikely to take the fantastical CGI-coated style of Alice in Wonderland, which grossed more than a billion dollars worldwide with Depp in the lead, they are not ruling out animated bells and whistles. As some of the most popular works of all time, Geisel’s books have sold more than 200 million copies worldwide.
Like most giant stars, Johnny Deppis attached to far more projects than he could ever appear in, so any news of upcoming development is near meaningless. With that in mind, here are three more pieces of meat that Depp is adding to his plate.
Slashfilm is reporting that he’ll be continuing his engrossing and high grossing relationship with Disney by developing an adaptation of the 1970s made-for-TV movie The Night Stalker which features a journalist who starts to believe that serial killings in and around Las Vegas are actually the work of a vampire (which sounds curiously like the new Fright Night). Along with The Mouse, Depp is also trying to bring the story of Paul Revere’s midnight ride to life. Here’s hoping he doesn’t do all his research for it on Wikipedia.
If that weren’t enough, Depp wants to start moving on In the Hand of Dantewith Julian Schnabel as the director. According to The Playlist, the project isn’t exactly official, but Depp owns the rights, and Schnabel claims, “We’re gonna work on writing it, developing it.” The story, adapted from the book by Nick Tosches splits its time between Dante finding inspiration to write his “Divine Comedy” in the 14th century and a fictionalized Nick Tosches sinking into the underworld in 2001.
It’s unclear whether any of these projects will ever see cameras roll, or if Depp will be in front of them when they do, but there are definitely some interesting concepts here. The world can probably live without more vampires, but an Early American-set action adventure could be a lot of fun, and anything about tortured Sicilian writers descending into a personal Hell has certainly got some meat on its bones.

2006 was the year of the magician, with a series of conjuror themed films battling it out in the hearts and minds of America, a battle won quite handily by Christopher Nolan’s underrated movie The Prestige. Yet even with all the magic acts on screen that year, magicians never became the new pirates. Maybe what the Penn Jillettes of this world need is Johnny Depp.
The LA Times says Johnny Depp is at the top of Warner Bros. list of actors they want to play the lead in Carter Beats the Devil. The film, currently in development at the studio, is based on a book by Glen David Gold. His novel takes a 1920s magician and puts him in a strange and mysterious situation. The story mixes in historical figures, for instance at some point the main character Charles Carter will attempt to saw then president Warren G. Harding in half.
This movie has been sitting around in development hell for awhile now, at one point even Tom Cruise was supposed to be involved. But if you’re looking for a flamboyant magician look no further than Johnny Depp. He’s your main if you’re looking for someone to play a less annoying version of David Blaine. Actually just give Jack Sparrow a top hat and you pretty much have this part cast.
For now Depp is just one of the names they’re rumored to be considering. Johnny may have his hands full with other projects. He’s currently in pre-production on The Lone Ranger and somewhere along the way he’s been filming Dark Shadows, to say nothing of the other half-dozen or so upcoming films he’s rumored to be involved in.

Gossip websites crashed after hoaxers claimed that Hollywood hunk Johnny Depp had been killed in an accident. The fraudsters mocked up a CNN page saying he had died in a car crash. The reports alleged that wreckage was found outside Bordeaux, in France, and pictures showed a guard rail embedded in the car. It was reported that the Pirates of the Caribbean star’s body was lying nearby among booze bottles.
“The police suspect that alcohol was the cause of the accident,” the Daily Star quoted the hoaxer as saying. Twitter users forwarded the bogus report and grieving fans jammed the Internet with one search engine reporting 13million hits. Computer experts claimed Johnny’s ‘death’ was the most searched subject in the world. But last night the bemused actor, 46, assured fans: “I’m alive and well.” “He’s fine,” insisted his spokesman Robin Baum.
Johnny is alive, and so is this website. Sorry for the lack of updates. Life is being a little busy to me and Annie, but soon the updates will be back as normal.
About the rumours, this isn’t the first time a hoax kills Johnny. This happens before, twice. In 2004, a CNN news bulletin declaring Depp dead in an alcohol-related SUV accident spread online. In 2007, the web doubted Depp’s existence once again when reports spread that Vanessa Paradis found him dead in his apartment, in Paris.
Ever since Michael Caine infamously name-checked Johnny Depp and Philip Seymour Hoffman as potential cast members for the next “Batman” movie, he’s been on notice. According to Caine, who’s currently making the rounds promoting his upcoming film “Harry Brown,” he hasn’t been on the receiving end of any details regarding Christopher Nolan’s next foray in the Bat-universe… but that doesn’t mean he isn’t interested in where the franchise goes next.
MTV Movies Editor Joshua Horowitz caught up with Caine during the Toronto International Film Festival (where the “news” first got started last year) to pick his brain about the next “Batman” movie and joke about the scoop that rocked the ‘Net.
“There is nobody, there’s no script, there’s nothing,” Caine told MTV News of the status of the next “Batman” movie. “It can’t possibly be made before 2011 because ‘Inception’ is such a big picture.”
“[They] won’t tell me anything because I said this before,” laughed Caine of the no-tell policy surrounding him after last year’s Depp/Hoffman story. Nevertheless, Caine offered this bit of “news”—before admitting that it could be wrong, and he’d be in trouble all over again.
“Johnny Depp is great in anything, but there is no Johnny Depp in this Batman,” he smiled. “They tell me in no uncertain terms.”
An outtake of an old photoshoot Johnny did for Entertainment Weekly.
During [Edward Scissorhands] I got the phone call saying I was out of [21 Jump Street]. I felt like, ‘Ah, possibilities.’ I was freed up. I swore to myself that I would never again compromise to the degree that I had. I swore that I wouldn’t just follow the commercial road. I wouldn’t do what was expected of me or what was necessary to maintain whatever it is – a popular or financially rewarding career. I promised myself that I wouldn’t do that. (2004) — Johnny Depp
