First official look at Johnny Depp in David Koepp's spy comedy Mortdecai

The past few years haven't been great for Johnny Depp, with DARK SHADOWS and THE LONE RANGER both underperforming at the box office, and TRANSCENDENCE being a complete bomb. But one upcoming project starring the actor I'm excited for is MORTDECAI, David Koepp's new film based on Kyril Bonfiglioli's book anthology The Mortdecai Trilogy.

The first official image from MORTDECAI has been released, featuring Johnny Depp sporting a handle bar mustache and slicked back blonde hair as the titular character.

Take a look:

Synopsis:

Juggling some angry Russians, the British MI5, his impossibly leggy wife, and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part-time rogue Charlie Mortdecai (Depp) must traverse the globe armed only with his good looks and special charm in a race to recover a stolen painting rumored to contain the code to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold.

Not a big Johnny Depp fan? Well there are plenty of other great actors appearing in MORTDECAI. The film also stars Ewan McGregor, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jeff Goldblum, Oliver Platt, Aubrey Plaza, Olivia Munn, Paul Bettany and Ulrich Thomsen.

I think MORTDECAI could be a fun little film, although movies from director David Koepp tend to be hit (STIR OF ECHOES) or miss (SECRET WINDOW). Still, I think MORTDECAI has a ton of potential, and I'm very interested in checking out the first trailer for Johnny Depp and David Koepp's new movie.

MORTDECAI is scheduled to be released on February 6th, 2015.

i like johnny depp granted not in everything and i do think he needs to dial back the weird and do a drama without a character that has to be weird for the sake of being quirky and odd

Is Depp wearing eyeliner? He cant keep away from the makeup can he? This one does sound Coen-like, Depp really needs some of that level of quality now. Goldblum is a plus. I didn't realize that Koepp also made Premium Rush which I liked a lot.

What? No funny hat? I'd imagine that after the failures of Dark Shadows and Teansendence he'd go back to funny hats.

IMO

He should go the Indie and then TV route, it worked well for great actors such as McConaughey or even Harrelson. If you can attract a crowd with a small film or a one season show, then you can start rebranding yourself as a professional actor.

Right now, he lost it. Which is sad...

The premise sounds very intriguing. I'm sure Depp can pull it off.

Koepp's movies are generally pretty fun. This feels like it could be a nice Sunday afternoon adventure movie.
