Johnny and Amber, together again on the big screen! Johnny Depp, 50, will make a cameo in London Fields, an upcoming thriller starring his 27-year-old girlfriend Amber Heard.

The crime thriller, based on the 1989 novel by Martin Amis, started filming in September in London. The plot follows a terminally-ill ex-pat, played by Billy Bob Thornton, who meets a psychic named Nicola Six (Heard) at a seedy London bar. Nicola, who knows she will be murdered before her upcoming birthday, begins a torrid love affair with three different men– one of whom is her killer. Theo James and Jim Sturgess will costar in the film.

Although Depp’s role in the movie remains unknown, sources told The Hollywood Reporter that the Pirates of the Caribbean actor has already filmed his scenes during short breaks from other in-production films, the big screen-adaptation of Into the Woods and Mortdecai.

Johnny Depp’s locks are on the lighter side these days.

The 50-year-old Hollywood star turned up sporting a new blond ‘do as the surprise guest Saturday night at the London Film Festival, where he gave Christopher Lee a special award for his legendary career.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, upon presenting the horror icon a British Film Institute Fellowship, Johnny said it was a “great honor to be here” and hailed Lee as a “great man, a very great man indeed.”

The two have co-starred in three films together, all directed by Tim Burton—Sleepy Hollow, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Dark Shadows (Lee also lent his voice to Burton’s Corpse Bride and Alice in Wonderland, both with Johnny).

Monday night at Craig’s, by far the hottest restaurant in West Hollywood and where the stars go to dine on comfort food: Sir Elton John and partner David Furnish celebrated the release of Elton’s magnificent new album “The Diving Board” with two superstar guests: Lady Gaga and Johnny Depp. (Also at Craig’s last night: Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit.)

This may have been the biggest star wattage per square inch (or however it would be calculated) in some time. They sat in a secluded banquette with Gaga between David and Elton, and Depp to Elton’s left. Gaga wore a large flowing pink gown with a gigantic blond wig right out of Marie Antoinette. “Actually it’s two wigs,” she told me after I’d made it past the four huge bodyguards in tow.

I did not check their orders. But I do know that Craig’s famous truffled-oiled fried chicken with mashed potatoes and spinach was consumed. It’s the hot spot’s signature dish.

So what was going on? We talked about “The Diving Board,” Elton’s first solo album in 7 years (not counting “The Union” with Leon Russell). The album is released in the U.S. today and it’s already causing a stir. If it’s not nominated for Album of the Year at this year’s Grammys, something is very very wrong.

I was waxing on and on about it until Gaga. who was very amusing, said: “You know, we went to the listening party. I know you think we’re just a pop star and an actor but we did get invited.”

Gaga then showed David, Elton and Johnny– and yours truly by default — a picture of her album cover on her iPhone. It’s a collaboration with famed artist Jeff Koons, and quite stunning. She also told us a story about going to play at the original Cutting Room in New York, and realizing that she looked just like Amy Winehouse. I think that’s when she went blonde.

Johnny Depp mostly listened, and was incredibly polite. As a musician I think he was taking it all in, too.

Meanwhile, a table of twelve people in their 30s, almost all from the record industry, were celebrating a birthday at a long table that ran perpendicular to this star setting. Somehow they kept their cool. But it was probably a very memorable night.

And that’s a Monday night in La La Land at Craig’s. It reminded me of the old Mondays at Morton’s from the 1980s.

PS David showed me pictures of his and Elton’s two little boys, Elijah and Zachary. They are very very cute. And he did tell me that their Elton John AIDS Foundation has just gotten a huge donation in the United Kingdom to help them keep battling AIDS and various diseases. Bravo!

The following article was written by the talented Jake Wallis Simons from “Telegraph”.

Johnny Depp and I have little in common. Last month, however, I was prescribed the sort of blue-tinted glasses that he has been wearing for years.

Contrary to popular belief, these are more than a fashion accessory. “Everything is just very, very blurry [without them],” he told Rolling Stone magazine in June. “I’ve never had proper vision.”
Depp has not revealed the precise health reason for the blue tint. In my case, though, it is to address Meares-Irlen syndrome, more commonly known as “visual stress”.

For years, I was unable to look at certain computer screens and mobile devices without dizziness, discomfort, nausea and shooting eye pain. Visits to opticians and ophthalmologists came to nothing. I tried the usual advice – taking regular breaks, adjusting my screen and so on – but nothing helped. The only workaround was to use particular computers made before 2007.

Eventually, I learnt of visual stress, and made an appointment with Simon Barnard, a specialist in the field, at the Barnard Levit optometrists in London.

Lionsgate and OddLot Entertainment have formed a multiyear, multipicture co-financing and distribution deal beginning with OddLot’s co-financing of the action comedy “Mortdecai,” starring Johnny Depp.

The companies said the deal gives them a framework for Lionsgate and OddLot to co-produce and co-finance additional pictures that may be sourced by either party. It also provides OddLot with distribution on certain pictures.

“Mortdecai” will star Johnny, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor, Paul Bettany and Olivia Munn. Production begins this fall with David Koepp directing. It’s based on the three-part series of books by Kyril Bonfiglioli and produced by Andrew Lazar, Johnny and Christi Dembrowski.

Johnny is portraying Charles Mortdecai, an antihero art dealer and part-time rogue who is in a race to recover a stolen painting rumored to contain the code to a lost bank account filled with Nazi loot.

Disney’s set a December 25, 2014 release date. The official synopsis for those who haven’t seen the musical on stage:

“Into the Woods is a modern twist on the beloved Brothers Grimm fairy tales, intertwining the plots of a few choice stories and exploring the consequences of the characters’ wishes and quests. This humorous and heartfelt musical follows the classic tales of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Rapunzel–all tied together by an original story involving a baker and his wife, their wish to begin a family and their interaction with the witch who has put a curse on them.”

In addition to announcing the new song and the start of production, Disney also provided this detailed list on the cast and the characters they’ll be portraying in Into the Woods:

  • · Meryl Streep portrays the Witch who wishes to reverse a curse so that her beauty may be restored.
    · Emily Blunt is the Baker’s Wife, a childless woman who longs to be a mother.

    · Anna Kendrick fills the shoes of Cinderella, who finds herself on a journey of self-discovery.
    · Chris Pine portrays Cinderella’s Prince, charming and impossibly handsome, who is on an endless quest to find his bride.
    · Johnny Depp steps in as the Wolf, who sets his sights on Little Red Riding Hood.
    · Lilla Crawford makes her feature-film debut as Little Red Riding Hood, a smart and spunky girl who journeys into the woods, finding unexpected adventures along the way.
    · Daniel Huttlestone lands the role of Jack, an absentminded and adventurous boy who trades his treasured cow for five magic beans.
    · Tracey Ullman joins the cast as Jack’s Mother, a poor and exasperated mom who is overwhelmed, yet fiercely protective of her son.
    · Christine Baranski takes on the infamous Stepmother who wishes for riches and grandeur; she’ll do anything to marry off one of her daughters to a prince.
    · MacKenzie Mauzy plays Rapunzel, a sheltered young woman who experiences the world beyond her tower for the first time.
    · Billy Magnussen is the dashing and eager Prince who courts Rapunzel.
  • Supporting roles will be played by Tammy Blanchard and Lucy Punch as Cinderella’s spoiled stepsisters, Richard Glover as the Princes’ royal steward, Frances de la Tour is the giant, Simon Russell Beale as the Baker’s father, Joanna Riding is Cinderella’s late mother, and Annette Crosbie is Little Red Riding Hood’s beloved granny.

    Johnny Depp once said you were capable of anything. Do you agree?

    I guess I have been very lucky. When I first worked with Johnny on Finding Neverland [in 2004], I was only about nine, and he was just a nice man to me, not a Hollywood star. Then we worked again on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory [a year later]. I still see him sometimes.

    The start of production on the fifth installment of Disney’s multibillion-dollar “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise has been delayed until at least this fall, prompting the studio to change its projected release date from July 10, 2015, to “Unset.”

    Producer Jerry Bruckheimer told The Hollywood Reporter that there are issues with the script (something that’s probably pretty common when you’re on to Popcorn Movie No. 5) and they’re hoping to get the show on the high seas by summer 2016.

    But they better hurry up before the end comes nigh for franchise cornerstone Johnny Depp. The 50-year-old actor, who at this time is the only returning star officially attached to Pirates 5 (which is currently listed on IMDb as POTC: Dead Men Tell No Tales), told the BBC in July that his retirement from moviemaking is “probably not too far away.”
