FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD Updates

Whatever the upheavals in his private life, Depp is still a consummate screen actor. His portrayal of Grindelwald rekindles memories of his old mentor, Vincent Price, in some of his more outré roles. White haired, softly spoken and with very pale skin, he dresses in black and looks from a distance ...

Johnny to star in McAfee biopic "King of the Jungle"?

I don't know what kind of relationship, if any, Johnny and Michael Keaton may have (2 guys that have figured so much into Tim Burton's filmography- have they ever met?), but if I was in Keaton's shoes, I think I'd pass on this on Johnny's behalf. I don't know what exactly McAfee's idea of a "to...

Nevermind, I see that you were referring to "King of the Jungle".

Johnny Depp to play War Photographer W.Eugene Smith in "Minamata"

Sounds like maybe Johnny's pursuing a bit more autonomy in the world of film and "digital content"? I know Infinitum Nihil is not new, but this international partnership the article mentions is. Avoiding going through Hollywood as much as possible sounds like a good tack. Terry Gilliam's b...

Zurich Interview with Johnny--Collider.com

I was moved by Johnny's explanation of Edward's vision of death, “he didn’t wake up”, meaning that death doesn't exist in Edward's mind. Johnny changing that line exemplifies his unique creativity, with making a character his own, early on in his career that continues to this day. That really caugh...

RICHARD SAYS GOODBYE Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers)

I'd still like to see this, but I certainly don't like the sound of the reviews, especially when they say "it's a far fresher performance from Johnny than we've seen in years", and then go on to explain why the film is terrible. It makes the absence of City Of Lies all the more painful. At...

RICHARD SAYS GOODBYE Updates

Glad this movie is premiering somewhere. The tone with which it's mentioned in the Waiting For The Barbarians thread just sounds like more of the anti-Depp machine droning on. I echo justintime's sentiments from that thread: Will we even get to see this in the U.S.? Nothing seems like a sure thing a...

British GQ interview

Very interesting read. Love the fact that Tim Burton just happened to be hanging around the area, and boating to boot. There's like a DS interview I think with the two of them where the idea of Tim, wearing shorts, on a boat, seemed hilarious to both of them. A Johnny Depp memoir? Now that would be ...

Re: Hollywood Vampires--All the latest news

Does anyone know, is (was) this just a one off gig in Japan, or are they supposed to have a few dates? And, is Alice with them? Didn't see him pictured. Some new video would be cool to see, and when's that album going to hit...

FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD Updates

Interesting thinking about Grindewald's Comicon speech in light of the way Heyman describes the character as an "absolutist", believing firmly in the superiority of the "wizarding world" over the "muggles". Maybe that's part of Grindewald's seductiveness, in saying that...

CITY OF LIES (LAbyrinth) Updates

Maybe it's even political, as the film suggests a strong distrust of the LAPD. At least at that time. I was hoping I wasn't on the right track w this, but... Meanwhile there's someone at Global Road trying to make Johnny the scapegoat for the film's indefinite status??? Seems like plenty of siniste...

Re: Hollywood Vampires--All the latest news

new Hollywood Vampires studio album. "The funny thing is, I’m not doing any writing on it," he says. "Johnny Depp, Joe Perry [and] Tommy Henriksen have written almost 90 percent of it. I come in and do a little surgery on the lyrics. But it’s interesting for me to be singing about Jo...
