Depp is a Tourist?

This week on THE TOURIST... Johnny Depp!

The talent involved with this tumultuous thriller seem to be taking the title seriously, stopping in for a short stay before moving on to other destinations.

First, Tom Cruise exited the project and Sam Worthington hopped on board to join Charlize Theron in the film. Then she also bought a ticket to Splitsville, and Angelina Jolie stepped in to lick the leftovers. And now Depp is sliding in as the male lead.

Of course, the project is also once again seeking a director, after Bhallat Nalluri (MISS PETTIGREW LIVES FOR A DAY) departed and replacement Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck (THE LIVES OF OTHERS) barely stayed long enough to warm the seat cushion. Alfonso Cuaron (CHILDREN OF MEN) is the latest to discuss the possibility of maybe directing but first leaving.

Eventually the project will works its way through everyone until it stars Linda Hunt and Kermit the Frog, directed by Jess Franco.

The movie (a remake of the 2005 French film ANTHONY ZIMMER) involves "a female Interpol agent chooses an everyman American tourist visiting France and dangles him as bait in the hunt for a wanted criminal, who's also her former lover."

Extra Tidbit: Jolie just finished another Cruise swap-out, replacing him in the espionage thriller SALT.
