What's next for Depp?

07.22.2009by:

You know something is haywire in Hollywood when a guy like Johnny Depp doesn't have anything to do.

One of our generation's finest (and certainly coolest) actors is attached to a whole bunch of high-profile projects, including THE LONE RANGER and another PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN (both currently directorless), an update of the old DARK SHADOWS show with Tim Burton, and even his pet project SHANTARAM. And he's being pursued for the recently announced remake of THE INCREDIBLE MR. LIMPET.

But tragically, nothing is even remotely ready for production until next year, which means that whenever Depp finishes up on Burton's ALICE IN WONDERLAND, he'll basically be twiddling his manicured and possibly polished thumbs for the remainder of 2009, which is kind of criminal.

C'mon -- there must be something going before cameras in the next few months that can utilize the skills and boundless cool of Depp. Let's hope he decides to fill his days with something worthwhile (and faster-moving)...

Extra Tidbit: While promoting PUBLIC ENEMIES in London, Depp made a surprise visit to Great Ormond Street Hospital (where his ill daughter had been previously treated) dressed as Jack Sparrow to cheer up sick youngsters. He'd already donated $1.5 million to the facility. Basically, he's the coolest.

Let me the man enjoy his time off. I am sure he needs it badly.

When he was filming Public Enemies, a little kid approached him and told him he liked his fedora hat. Depp told him he would see if he can find one for him. After filming wrapped, Depp sent the hat he wore in the film to the kid.

Least he's smart enough not to just make any film out there or else he might end up like Nicolas Cage Bruce Willis & Samuel L. Jackson, but he is much smarter so maybe a year off can't hurt after all.

JoDepp is the man!

Johnny Depp kicks ass. F' the Depp haters. I can't wait for the Rum Diary. I read that book two years ago and I can still remember each chapter. Now that's a fun story.

Don Quixote?

With all this time off, anyone else think this would be the perfect opportunity for Depp and Terry Gilliam to team up and finally finish The Man Who Killed Don Quixote? I'd imagine it wouldn't take too long to shoot. A script has been written for years now.

Honestly, the more Depp, the better. Sure the ladies go a little too nuts for him, but he's honestly earned it.

This is just a wake-up call to studios to fast-track their films so they can get him first. Do NOT leave him jobless (and at home probably swimming in a mile-long pool of money).

This happens. Actors make a big splash and then take off for a year or so. Or whatever, they don't have something ready one year, but the next come out with two movies. I could go on and on about that stuff. But considering how boiling hot he is, maybe it is a bad thing.

But by the time Alice comes out, who knows what the status will be.

I dont really think that he needs to do the whole 6 movies a year thing, he needs to just take on projects that will satisfy him. As he is ACTUALLY talented, too many movies would probably not benefit him whatsoever. Let the man take a break. Its not like he needs the money.

Depp rocks but honestly I could use a nice break from him. I feel he's been oversaturated, especially the last few years.

Could be

The coolest actor of all time, no doubt. He is just awesome. As for the lone ranger movie i think they should get a re-team of him and leo or even brad pitt. He needs to do a movie with those two. At least leo again

All of the stories I hear about this guy from cheering up children to leaving $1,000 dollar tips just makes him that much greater.

This man can do know wrong.. we love you Depp.
