Finally I got time to sort captures from Johnny’s movies. Today I added 1208 pictures from one of the most funniest movies (IMO): Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. You can expect more this week.
Be alive if you can! I found three high quality stills from movie Sweeney Todd. I almost fall from my chair. Take a look, and fall from yours, too:

Johnny Depp is to produce and star in the film adaptation of Hunter S Thompson’s autobiographical novel ‘The Rum Diary’. Thompson wrote the book – which is loosely based on his time in the 1950s working as a journalist in Puerto Rico – in 1959 but it was not published until 1998.
Oscar-winning producer Graham King’s GK Films has acquired the rights to the book, which King will produce with Depp for Warner Independent Pictures.
Depp will also star as Paul Kemp, a journalist writing for a rundown newspaper in San Juan alongside a motley self-destructive crew. Bruce Robinson (‘Withnail & I’) is writing the adapted screenplay and will direct. [source]
It’s avaliable the poster for Sweeney Todd. Check it:
Some forty odd years ago a soap opera began its run, which would eventually take it to 1245 episodes by the time it went off the air in 1971. But this was no garden variety soap opera. This was “Dark Shadows”.
According to trade magazine Variety, via Filmstalker, Johnny Depp’s production company Infinitum-Nihil, GK Films, and Warner Bros. have signed a deal with the estate of the late Dan Curtis, and secured the rights to develop a feature film based on the show. Depp and Graham King will produce with David Kennedy, who ran Dan Curtis Prods. until Curtis’ death. There’s no word on who would direct, and indeed no word on whether Mr Depp would take on the signature role of Barnabas Collins himself. But it would seem the obvious choice, especially considering his personal attachment to the character:
Depp has said in interviews that he has always been obsessed with “Dark Shadows” and had, as a child, wanted to be Barnabas Collins, the vampire patriarch of the series.
Hollywood actor Johnny Depp says that he wouldn’t mind essaying his character in the adventure series ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ for a seventh time.
Forty-three-year-old Depp, who plays the role of Jack Sparrow in the hit series, said Sparrow’s character has a lot to explore.
“I’ll never get bored of Captain Jack, he is so much fun. If they wanted to do ‘Pirates 7′, why not? There are new layers to Jack and situations that he can’t just talk his way out of, so it would be good to keep exploring the character,” Tittle-tattle quoted Depp, as saying.
However, Depp doesn’t enjoy the process of fixing gold teeth on, for he finds the entire process very rough.
“They’re bonded on to my own choppers! They make the surface of my teeth kind of rough, then use hot glue and laser the false teeth on,” he said.
“The process of taking them off can be quite ugly. Sometimes they just shoot off and other times you have to address the issue more intensely, with yanking,” he added.
I’ve added 4 new POTC 3 movie promos. Great promos, by the way.
Franchise unlikely to stop with trilogy…
The latest word is that the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise will continue on after the third film, At World’s End, opens in theaters this May.
Even though the third film will serve as a close to the trilogy, Johnny Depp has expressed interest in keeping the franchise going and Disney is now considering it. Orlando Bloom might not continue on with the series after the third film however.

Yay! I love POTC and I hope Disney really keep going a 4, maybe a 5 part of the movie. Jack Sparrow it’s one of the best Johnny roles.
Pirates of the Caribbean star Johnny Depp could be heading to Melbourne to shoot scenes for his new movie Shantaram.
The film is based on the book of the same name by former Melbourne prisoner turned Bombay slum doctor Gregory Roberts.
Director Mira Nair revealed she was coming to Melbourne for research and to determine whether scenes would be shot here.
Depp was recently in the tabloids for keeping a bedside vigil for his daughter who was admitted to hospital with a severe case of blood poisoning. [Source]
