Which Johnny Depp Project Do You Want to See Next?

Between Public Enemies and the forthcoming Alice in Wonderland, we'll be seeing quite a lot of Johnny Depp on the big screen over the next several months. So it's surprising to read that Depp is actually in something of a career lull at the moment, having committed to a lot of projects that aren't quite in production yet. Which will take off first? Here are the contenders:

  • Depp is, of course, signed on for the next Pirates of the Caribbean film — but because Disney is looking for a new director, it might be a while before he starts work on it.
  • He's also committed to star as Tonto in The Lone Ranger, but that film still awaits a director and a finished script.
  • Depp is teaming up with Alice director Tim Burton for a Dark Shadows film, but since Burton's still got work to do on Alice, it could be a while.
  • Finally, Warner Bros. wants Depp to take the title role in its update of The Incredible Mr. Limpet, but Depp hasn't yet agreed to play the man who turns into a talking fish.

Which role do you hope he brings to the big screen next?

Johnny Depp is so delicious. I have naughty fantasies of him - oh the fun we'd have ;-) My husband has finally accepted (or givne up) my admiring of Depp. I love when he is teamed up with Burton (such complex roles), but I love seeing him all sexy, tan, sweaty covered in sand in Pirates. I could watch that movie on mute since I didn't like the movies much. I think Tonto would be hot, especially if he walked around in a loincloth the whole time. Vanessa is the luckiest girl in the world!

I'm interested to see how Tonto would be represented in this day and age... especially by Johnny.

[Johnny Depp] says, “My dream role would be to play musical legend Carol Channing in a biopic of her life. I love her, I really do, she’s amazing. With all the digital technology these days, I could probably pull it off!” ---------------------------- I think he's on to something here...

Its a tie between Pirates and Dark Shadows. Either way i'll still see him in anything.

Dark Shadows. Love the original and hopefully he'll bring more fans to one of my fave shows of all time :)

Hmm he could star as the pool man, Deadpool or just sit in a pool, I don't care. Johnny is awesome

:rotfl: at Eveday's comment. That is hilarious. I don't care. Johnny could read from the phone book for entire 2 hours and I would be enamored. He is such a masterpiece of man.

Dark Shadows caught my eye. It's looking interesting.

I have rarely like his movies outside of his work with Burton or as Jack Sparrow. He's a great actor, just not always the best judge of a good film. So I would say I am looking forward to the Dark Shadows film but not so much to a fourth pirates movie.

Which role do you hope he brings to the big screen next? Anything. I'd love him to play "the guy" in my sex tape but that's asking too much I guess...

that is wierd to hear that he's in a career lull (?!) - very wierd. I personally don't care because any Johnny is good Johnny (even the otherwise unbearable Public Enemies). I personally think the second and third Pirates were really awful, and I don't think they should make any more. I'm most excited for Dark Shadows, and I think he will be amazing (as always) in it!
