Depp joins Malkovich

01.08.2004

Before we get to see Johnny Depp in CHARLIE AND THE CHARLIE FACTORY or PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 2 (there's still no word on that DIAMOND DEAD role he was offered), he's going to be playing this guy to the right. That's John Wilmont, poet and 2nd Earl of Rochester and apparently he deserves his own movie entitled THE LIBERTINE. The film also stars John Malkovich and Samantha Morton. Director Lawrence Dunmore will take a break from his numerous British television commercials to helm this adaptation by Stephen Jefferys from his own play. The shoot starts on Febuary 23rd somewhere near London. Depp must feel pretty strongly about the part since the film's budget is only $16 million, a number that hardly covers his asking price for most of the roles he takes. Don't fool yourself though, Mr. Scissorhands is worth every penny. He could star in a movie about paint drying and I'd wait in line for it.  For now, Johnny waits in the wings to see if all the money and hype the original PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN cooked up is enough to earn him a Golden Globe and maybe even an Oscar nod.
