Catching Up With Johnny Depp

Aw Johnny Depp. He's a true artist, and definitely one of my all time favorite actors. I even liked him way before his Pirates' status made him a favorite to all. So, let's see what the brilliant Edward Scissorhands and Ed Wood actor have in store for us all next...

Public Enemies:

Directed By Michael Mann
Cast: Johnny Depp, Christian Bale, Billy Crudup, Giovanni Ribisi, David, there are a lot of good actors in this one! =D
Release Date: 1st July 2009
Plot: The Feds try to take down notorious American gangsters John Dillinger, Baby Face Nelson and Pretty Boy Floyd during a booming crime wave in the 1930s.

The Verdict?: Michael Mann is a brilliant director. I cannot wait to see how he and Mr. Depp work together. Also anything dealing with mafia stories sounds good to me! =) This cast will be fun to watch.

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus
Directed by Terry Gilliam
Cast: Johnny Depp (well, obviously), Heath Ledger, Colin Farrell, Jude Law, Christopher Plummer, Tom Waits
Release date: 24th September 2009
Plot: A traveling theater company gives its audience much more than they were expecting

The Verdict?: Well, with a cast such as this, it hopefully won't disappoint. Johnny Depp is sure to be amazing in a setting such as this! This will be Heath Ledger's last performance (although he did not get to finish) Also Terry Gilliam has been pretty good to us so far. He did well with Mr. Depp before ;).

Alice In Wonderland:

Directed By: Tim Burton
Cast: Johnny Depp, Michael Sheen, Anne Hathaway, Crispin Glover, Alan Rickman, Christopher Lee, Helena Bonham Carter, Mia Wasikowska
Release Date: 5th March 2010
Plot: A live-action and CGI version of the classic "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" story

The Verdict?: For me, anything involving Tim Burton + Johnny Depp is magic for me. I will gladly see this, and hope it will be a visual treat! =) And again, look at this cast!!!! Should be bloody brilliant!

Directed By Gore Verbinski
Cast: Johnny Depp, Isla Fisher, Abigail Breslin
Release Date: 18th March 2011
Plot: Animated film of a household pet going on an adventure to discover its true self.

Verdict?: Well, let's just hope he's doing this one for his kids ;).

The Rum Diary
Directed By Bruce Robinson
Cast: Johnny Depp, Amber Heard, Aaron Eckhart
Release Date: 2010
Plot: 1960. Divorced alcoholic and struggling novelist Paul Kemp decides to kick around San Juan until his ship comes in.

Verdict?: Well, if it's half as good as the book, I'm down. ;) Johnny Depp does well with this kind of material. =)

Other Upcoming Rumors...

The Three Stooges and Sin City 3.

Stay tuned for much more info on this brilliant actor!! =)
