“JOHNNY DEPP has been making trips to London to fine-tune his singing voice for his starring role in Sweeney Todd.
Based on the Broadway musical, it also stars Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen.
But Air Studios staff don’t know whether the Pirates Of The Caribbean star can sing. An insider said: “Johnny has a closed set with just him and the director, but I’ve heard he can hold a note or two.” ”

Hey Everyone!!! I wish everyone a very happy holiday season!
I will be out of town for the next two weeks, will be having a vacation trip (my first in like forever!). I will try to get on and update if I can, but I might not so, if you see the site is kinda not updated, don’t be affraid, I will be back soon!
Graham King’s Initial Entertainment Group has bought the film rights to three novels for Johnny Depp’s production company, Infinitum Nihil. Variety says Depp’s company and King will co-produce all three for Warner Bros. Pictures under King’s deal with the studio.
Warner Bros. and Initial have also hired writer D.V. DeVincentis (Grosse Point Blank, High Fidelity) to adapt Nick Hornby’s darkly comic “A Long Way Down” for Depp’s Infinitum Nihil.
Infinitum was careful to stress that Depp isn’t attached to star in the four projects. At the same time, any project set up at an actor’s vanity shingle has the potential to turn into a starring vehicle.
Initial and Infinitum are in talks with Peter Medak (Romeo is Bleeding) to direct the film version of Joseph Gangemi’s novel “Inamorata“, adapted by the author. Set in Philadelphia in the 1920s, the book revolves around a Harvard graduate student who falls in love with a beautiful psychic whom he is attempting to discredit as a fraud.
The two companies have scooped up film rights to “Affected Provincial’s Companion“, a compendium of essays, diagrams and poetry written, designed and illustrated by Lord Breaulove Swells Whimsy as a treatise on the value of being a refined gentleman in today’s unrefined world.
The third book is journalist-author James Meek’s “The People’s Act of Love“, set in 1919 Siberia. The storyline revolves around an escapee from a Russian prison camp who stumbles upon a Christian sect.
The story for “A Long Way Down” follows four desperate people who meet on New Year’s Eve and form a surrogate family. [CommingSoon]
I’ve just realized that our gallery didn’t had POTC2 promo pictures. Until now…
Uploaded 26 HQ promo pictures and 4 new posters under POTC2 category.
Johnny Depp has demanded a Moroccan-themed trailer on the set of his latest movie ‘Sweeney Todd’.
Pinewood Studio bosses have agreed to the 43-year-old actor’s unusual request and forked out £20,000 to re-decorate his accommodation with expensive drapes, scented candles and several Moroccan shish pipes – which are used for smoking flavoured tobacco.
Finished the upload of 962 POTC2′ screencaptures, sending in by Nickyy (thanks, dear). The funniest ones, Johnny is excellent as always and the caps are very good.
Actors go to all sorts of lengths to get into character for their roles, and to make them as real as possible. Take Christian Bale: The man starved himself twenty pounds beyond his nutritionist’s recommendation, morphing into barely more than a pile of bones and skin for The Machinist. It was a bigger personal commitment than overeating for a few months to gain a few curves. Beyond moulding their body, what do actors do to prepare? They might perform some interviews or immerse themselves in the environment.
Well, rumor has it that interviews aren’t enough for Johnny Depp. As Erik Davis reported almost a year ago, Depp is re-teaming with Tim Burton for a film adaptation of the strange Stephen Sondheim musical, Sweeney Todd. Playing the vicious barber who collects human parts for Mrs. Lovett’s meat pies, Depp has been trying to get into character, and it seems he couldn’t find a killer barber to learn from.
There’s three new pictures of Pirates of the Caribbean 3: At world ends up. Go check:
Found some new pictures and added to the gallery. Some behid the scenes from Pirates of the Caribbean 3, including candids, and new ones from LA Press Conference from POTC 2. Enjoy!
