Re: The Lawsuits Thread

From Deadline Hollywood article posted by Lbock: Depp has engaged in a clear pattern and practice of habitually lying to the public and to public authorities, and of requiring others (including long-term employees, family and so-called friends) to lie on his behalf. This practice has become Depp’s m...

Johnny helps Make a Film Foundation grant film wishes

Also, if you're interested in a regular version of the DVD, there is an add to cart option near the bottom of the page, which is an automatic $25 donation and $2 shipping, as opposed to the $20 minimum that I had thought it was. I got the $20 figure from the news article about Del Toro's limited ed...

Johnny helps Make a Film Foundation grant film wishes

A couple corrections to previous post: Leonard Maltin moderated The Black Ghiandola panel, actor Bruce Davison was the host. I'm going to look on youtube again, but so far have found no video for this, and I don't know who all was part of the panel. (I'm not sure how Davison is connected to Make a F...

Johnny helps Make a Film Foundation grant film wishes

Here are some words from Leonard Maltin about The Black Ghiandola, taken from the Make a Film page. Apparently he hosted a panel after the premiere. Also, there is information on a limited edition run of the DVD featuring artwork by Guillermo Del Toro! See the website for details, but a $20 donation...

Re: The Lawsuits Thread

“It’s my money,” Mr. Depp told The Wall Street Journal. “If I want to buy 15,000 cotton balls a day, it’s my thing.” :biglaugh: that cottonball comment, and the comment that the cannon cost $5 million, not $3 million....that's just typical, awesome Johnny. Completely agree! Good for him. It's been ...

30th anniversary of Withnail and I

I've heard Johnny mention this movie on many occasions. Several times during The Rum Diary junket especially, because Withnail is the reason why Johnny and Hunter wanted Bruce Robinson to write and direct TRD. During The Lone Ranger junket, an airhead journalist asked him what his favorite westerns ...

Re: FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD Updates

Good news, welcome Tony#3! As for my recent posts about Rowling having had interest in Tim Burton and Terry Gilliam as directors, well, that may not be in the cards, but between her and Yates, they found the one actor in Johnny who brings the same kind of outside the box dreaming aesthetic as those ...

Re: FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD Updates

David Yates will be directing the remaing four movies. He directed the last four of the Potter movies. Is that official, signed on the dotted line sort of thing? At first glance that doesn't sound like great news to me. I do trust my buddy Terry's opinions about film for the most part, so when he s...

Re: FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD Updates

Agreed - on all fronts, fireflydances, but (selfishly, perhaps) most importantly for Johnny. For Johnny? He loves working with those guys. Are you just worried about the press getting on him if he ever works with with Burton or Gilliam again? I don't see how avoiding these guys is supposed to be a ...

Re: FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD Updates

Fair enough, but with 5 movies in the works, what are the chances that Yates will be directing all of them? Probably at some point it will be someone else. I have not yet seen Fantastic Beasts, so I can't comment one way or another on his direction. However, I did leave out a key part in my last pos...

Re: FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD Updates

This isn't news, but I came across some videos from a little over a year ago where Terry Gilliam, while doing press for his autobiography Gilliamesque, talks about how he was sort of "in the running" to direct one of the Harry Potter films, how Rowling must have seen Python, etc., and how perfect he...

Looks like I got a response from Tamika Lamison herself almost immediately! Here's what she says: Yes. Of course! We will make the film available to people via donation after the screening in April. Stay posted. You can also pre-order and donate. When you donate just put in the subject it is for a D...
