So the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is setting sail this 2015 in Australia and of course Johnny Depp will be leading the movie as Captain Jack Sparrow but there are a couple of actors that are rumored to set sail next to Johnny.
Firstly, Orlando Bloom who has recenty said: “There have certainly been some discussions about it and I’m open to it”. On the other hand Keira Knightley has confirmed she will not be part of the next Pirates movie.
Other actors that might be part of the film are: Jack Davenport, Christoph Waltz, Geoffrey Rush, Mackenzie Crook, Keith Richards, Lee Arenberg and Martin Klebba.
“Tusk”, directed by Kevin Smith, premiered yesterday at the TIFF.
The movie, too, takes on a wildly different tone when, around the film’s third act, a wholly unrecognizable Johnny Depp is introduced as a gonzo French-Canadian detective named Guy LaPointe, who teams up with Wally’s co-host and girlfriend (Genesis Rodriguez) to track him down. With Depp’s entrance, what had been a relatively straightforward horror film is turned on its head. It’s undoubtedly the best, most off-the-wall performance Depp has given in ages, the kind of actorly feat that is so out there that it borders on the hypnotic. Depp, with little more than some well-placed prosthetics and a goofy French-Canadian accent, makes “Tusk” infinitely weirder.
The Guardian is reporting the Australian government has given the green light to provide $20.2 million in tax incentives for Dead Men Tells No Tales. This film will take the place of the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea remake which has been delayed. Details can be found here.
So here it is, the first official Mortdecai trailer. Starring Johnny Depp, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor, and directed by David Koepp. This new trailer lasts 1 minute 22 seconds, and introduces the main character Charles Mortdecai (Johnny Depp). The film will premiere next February 2015.
This week in London respected American producer T Bone Burnett revealed a video of his latest project, Lost in the River: The Basement Tapes, on which a handful of artists including Elvis Costello and Marcus Mumford have written music for lyrics penned and supplied by Bob Dylan.
Dylan found the long-forgotten scraps from his own Basement Tapes, recorded at the Big Pink in 1967, in a box last year and handed over the previously unseen words to Burnett with orders to do something with them.
We’ll hear the results in November, but ring-in Johnny Depp is on there, standing in for Costello on one song on guitar because the Liverpudlian had a gig to go to elsewhere on the day of recording. “I was glad to have him as an understudy,” Costello says.
Could Johnny Depp be walking the plank Down Under?
The Australian film industry is a buzz with the news that location scouts for the fifth Pirates Of The Caribbean movie – Dead Men Tell No Tales – have been spotted in Queensland.
The pair of representatives from the Johnny Depp-starring blockbuster production were seen getting a guided tour around Village Roadshow Studios on the Gold Coast and are said to still be in the country.
