Depp Going to Hell

12.03.2008

In my book, any Johnny Depp casting news is huge casting news. So consider the following huge casting news. Depp's production company Infinitum Nihil (say what?) has just acquired the rights to Nick Tosches 2002 novel "The Hand of Dante", which is being developed as a starring vehicle for Depp himself.

The book revolves around Dante's masterpiece "The Divine Comedy," and tells parallel storylines involving Dante in 14th-century Italy as he tries to complete the work, and a contemporary storyline involving Tosches, who is asked to authenticate what might be Dante's original manuscript. Depp would play Tosches, which would mark his second foray into the exploration of satanic theology, after starring in Roman Polanski's thriller THE NINTH GATE. He also starred in the film FROM HELL, which leads me to believe that maybe he's trying to tell us something. I for one, am scared.
Extra Tidbit: Depp can next be seen as The Mad Hatter in Tim Burton's ALICE IN WONDERLAND.
