Johnny Depp In Talks To Play Mexican Hero Pancho Villa

Johnny Depp to Play Pancho Villa

Johnny Depp is in talks to star in an upcoming biopic of Pancho Villa, titled Seven Friends of Pancho Villa and the Woman With Six Fingers. Villa was a Mexican Robin Hood of sorts, a thief to the rich and hero to the poor. I can easily see Depp in this part, but here's the twist — he'll be acting in Spanish.

Depp can pretty much handle any role that's thrown at him, but a foreign language biopic will definitely put his acting skills to the test. On a less surprising note, Salma Hayek is being eyed to play his costar. Filming won't start until 2011 due to Depp's other commitments, and if he pulls this one off, I dare say this sounds like an awards movie.

What's your take on Depp as Pancho? Think he can handle the Spanish?

So another job is a missed opportunity for a Latino actor? Just great. *rolls eyes*As much as I love Johnny, I can't help but think someone else deserves a shot.

I love him and love it, but why wouldn't they pick a Spanish actor? its like when British people were annoyed that Renee Zelleweger got Bridget Jones instead of a British woman. its very strange to me, but kudos to Johnny and Johnny + Salma on screen will sizzle for sure
