The U.S. TV show that made JOHNNY DEPP famous is making its way to the big screen, under the watchful eye of comedy star JONAH HILL, according to reports.
Depp found fame playing baby-faced police officer Tom Hanson in 1980s undercover cop series 21 Jump street when he was just 24. The role helped him land parts in movies Cry Baby and Edward Scissorhands, which catapulted him to Hollywood fame.
Superbad star Hill will serve as the new film’s executive producer and script writer, and will be joined by the original series’ co-creator Stephen J. Cannell, according to EW.COM.
Depp’s camp has yet to confirm if he will consider a cameo appearance in the film.
A British literary agency says actor Johnny Depp’s half brother Daniel will publish his first novel.
“Loser’s Town” follows a private detective called in when a Hollywood star begins receiving death threats.
MBA Literary Agents Ltd. said Friday that Daniel Depp struck a deal with Simon and Schuster to publish the book in the United States and Britain early next year. Canadian rights have been acquired by Penguin and French rights have been sold to Presses de la Cite.
Depp is a scriptwriter and producer. He splits his time between France and California.
February 6, 2008 – Although there has been no definitive word yet on if or when Walt Disney Pictures and producer Jerry Bruckheimer might set sail on a fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie — indeed, both the cast and the filmmakers said while promoting last summer’s Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End that the franchise would be taking a well-deserved break — rumors have now surfaced about the plot to Pirates 4.
The end of Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End saw Johnny Depp’s Captain Jack Sparrow setting off in search of the fabled Fountain of Youth — and his on-again, off-again enemy/ally, Captain Barbossa (played by Geoffrey Rush).
According to JimHillMedia.com, Pirates 4 “would toss the Elizabeth & Will characters [portrayed by Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom, respectively] over the side in favor of doing a bawdy buddy picture which would star Jack Sparrow & Barbossa. Where both captains of the Black Pearl would initially be competing for the exact same prize.” (IGN.com)
Director Terry Gilliam is trying to figure out how to keep Heath Ledger in his last film, according to one of the late actor’s co-stars in “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus,” which Ledger was still shooting when he died last week.
“Terry’s throwing himself into the job of trying to salvage the picture,” veteran actor Christopher Plummer told People.com over the weekend.
Despite reports the director might shelve the $30 million production, Gilliam, whom Plummer described as “terribly saddened” by Ledger’s death, is “trying to work out at this moment how to continue on. Fortunately, because the film deals with magic, there is a way, perhaps, of turning Heath into other people and then, using stills and I think they call it CGI.”
Ledger and Plummer left the London portion of the movie’s shoot last weekend and were due to continue filming next week in Vancouver. Plummer said, “Heath was in very high spirits,” though Plummer confirmed Ledger was ill and complaining about not being able to sleep.
As for reports that Gilliam has approached Johnny Depp to step into Ledger’s role, the actor’s rep said, “There have been no official talks, and he is currently working on ‘Public Enemies’ for Michael Mann for Universal.”
Johnny Depp will replace Heath Ledger in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, the latest project Heath had been working on. Director Terry Gilliman hand picked Johnny for the role.
But this doesn’t mean we won’t see Heath at all. The studio is saying there’s a part of the movie in which Heath’s character falls through a magic mirror, and they may have Johnny become the new appearance of the changed character.
It’s sad that they already have to be dealing with this so soon after Heath’s death, but it’s great that such an amazing actor as Johnny Depp will be on board.
Johnny got another nomination from Academy Awards, for his Sweeney Todd!
He will dispute with: Daniel Day Lewis, George Clooney, Tommy Lee Jones and Viggo Mortensen.
Congratulations, and go Johnny!
Johnny Depp received his third Academy Award nomination for best actor for his role as the title character in Tim Burton’s gothic musical “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street,” though no nods went to the film, its director or co-star Helena Bonham-Carter.
The nominees for the 80th Academy Awards were announced Tuesday from Beverly Hills, California, with Johnny Depp seeing his portrayal of the psychotic criminal whom he managed to make endearing to the audiences receive a nomination in the best actor category.
Depp, previously nominated for “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl” in 2004 and “Finding Neverland” in 2005, will compete against George Clooney in “Michael Clayton,” Daniel Day-Lewis in “There Will Be Blood,” Tommy Lee Jones in “In the Valley of Elah” and Viggo Mortensen in “Eastern Promises.”
While “Sweeney Todd” was not nominated in the best picture category, the trophy will be fought over between “Michael Clayton,” “There Will Be Blood,” “Atonement,” “Juno” and “No Country for Old Men.”
The organizers of the Academy Awards ceremony have been adamant that the event will take place regardless of the ongoing WGA strike, on the scheduled date of Feb. 24 at Hollywood’s Kodak Theatre.
After trying for weeks to salvage the high-luster Golden Globe Awards ceremony, the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn. is set to announce today that it will forgo the annually televised black-tie event scheduled for Sunday in favor of a scaled-down press conference broadcast on NBC.
The compromise would allow the winners to receive their awards but would cut out the lavish dinner and ceremony, an event the Writers Guild of America had vowed to picket.
The extended press conference would be covered by NBC News, which, though part of NBC Universal, is not a division affected by the ongoing writers strike. Read more… »
MUMBAI: Johnny Depp has been voted as the number one ‘Money-Making Star of 2007′ in Quigley Publishing Company’s 76th Annual Poll. This poll is an annual survey of motion picture exhibitors conducted since 1932. It votes for the top ten stars who generate the maximum box-office revenue in the preceding year for their theatres.
Depp, who starred in Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End and Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, has repeated his 2006 performance. In 2005, he was placed only second to Tom Cruise.
This time round Will Smith, who starred in I Am Legend, finished second followed by George Clooney (Michael Clayton and Ocean’s Thirteen) and Matt Damon (The Bourne Ultimatum and Ocean’s Thirteen). The list further includes Denzel Washington (The Great Debaters and American Gangster) at fifth position while Russell Crowe ( American Gangster and 3:10 to Yuma) was placed sixth.
Interestingly, Tom Cruise, who remained in the top ten for a record 20 times since 1983 fared at number seven followed by Nicholas Cage, Will Ferrell and Tom Hanks respectively. This is the first year in 24 years, since 1983, that exhibitors have not included a female star in the Top Ten. [Source]
