Depp defuses Bomb

03.11.2005

Johnny Depp news article pic Johnny Depp along with Initial Entertainment have optioned the rights to the non-fiction book THE BOMB IN MY GARDEN. The book was written by Iraq's top nuclear weapons scientist Mahdi Obeidi and People magazine foreign correspondent Kurt Pitzer and tells the story of Obeidi's involvement in Iraq's nuclear weapons program. Trained in an American school in Colorado, Obeidi was an engineer in the Iraqi oil industry before he was transferred to the nuclear weapons programs where he pioneered new developments in bomb material and was involved in many covert operations to obtain classified information. After Hussein's capture, he handed over the data he had on the nuclears weapon program (which he had buried in the backyard in his garden) to coalition forces in exchange to be allowed to live in the United States. Pitzer acted as an intermediary when the documents were being handed over to American forces. Depp can next be seen in CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY, the animated CORPSE BRIDE and the currently filming PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MAN'S CHEST.
