As the title says, a new image of Johnny as W. Eugene Smith behind the scenes of Minamata has been posted by photographer Greg Williams on his official Instagram account. The caption of the photo said:
#johnnydepp having wrapped for the day on the film #minamata in #montenegro where he plays the greatest photo essayist of all time (in my humble opinion) #WEugeneSmith while documenting the mercury poisoning of the Japanese city in the 70s
Wonderful Eugene Smith
Having finished the day shooting a scene in an outdoor bath he was driven home in a dressing gown to keep him dry and warm, see the water drops still in his face
Shot in the back of a car and lit with the shitty L.E.D. light you get above a car door, impossibly slow shutter speed, his prosthetic beard still on
We added the photo of Johnny to our photo gallery. Enjoy!
Dentist Dr. David Keen, D.D.S., M.S. in Beverly Hills, California, posted a personal image of himself standing holding a child and standing next to Johnny in his clinic on his Instagram account. Apparently, Johnny paid a visit to the doctor, as he wrote on March 07:
Always fun when Johnny Depp is in the office! @johnnydeppofficial
Just so you know, the Instagram profile linked is NOT Johnny. He does not use any social media platforms. We added the image to our photo gallery.
By the way, a question to our visitors: Are you actually interested in seeing personal posts such as this one? While there are no Johnny news around, I like to post more “random” stuff like this (provided that something is posted on social media or so). Let me know in the comments below if you’re interested in seeing personal stuff or not.

Johnny was filmed and photographed while talking to a parrot during the filming of Minamata in Belgrade, Serbia on March 03, 2019. The owner of the bird, Isador Isa Saric, posted the following images to his Facebook page, writing:
”#JackSparrow meets #BebaTheParrot World Exclusive from one famous Belgrade Hotel”
Especially, the unique video of Johnny Depp’s talking to the baby, kidding, a little and cursing in Serbian, and she’s like chill 😁 because the baby is one of the rare that ” caught the sparrow”

The first movie still of Johnny as W. Eugene Smith in “Minamata” has been revealed.
Johnny can be seen in the black and white photograph with a beard, glasses, beret and holding a camera, portraying the celebrated war photographer W. Eugene Smith in his current movie project Minamata.
The movie is directed by Andrew Levitas (Lullaby) and is based on the Smith’s book, co-authored with his wife Aileen Mioko Smith, of the same name.
Bill Nighy has also been cast in the film, alongside Hiroyuki Sanada (Westworld), Minami Hinase (Vision), Tadanobu Asano (Midway), Ryo Kase (Letters from Iwo Jima) and Jun Kunimura (Midway).
The film will focus on Smith’s journey to Japan and has been billed as “a redemptive thriller” that pitts Smith against a powerful corporation responsible for poisoning the people of Minamata in 1971.
The first image has been added to our photo gallery. Enjoy!
Unfortunately, the rumors have been confirmed: Johnny Depp will not return as Captain Jack Sparrow in the coming Pirates of the Caribbean movies.
Johnny’s tenure as Captain Jack Sparrow has officially come to an end, following a Disney executive’s confirmation that the actor will no longer be a part of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise.
The studio’s production chief, Sean Bailey, was speaking about the previously announced reboot – set to be written by Deadpool‘s Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese – when he was asked whether the series could survive without Johnny.
Rather than deny the reports, Bailey told The Hollywood Reporter:
“We want to bring in a new energy and vitality. I love the [Pirates] movies, but part of the reason Paul and Rhett are so interesting is that we want to give it a kick in the pants. And that’s what I’ve tasked them with.”
Johnny confirmed he will be back as Gellert Grindelwald in Fantastic Beasts 3.
As the title reveals, Johnny has just confirmed that he will reprise his villainous role as Gellert Grindelwald in the third instalment of the Fantastic Beasts film series.
As you probably already know (and can’t await!) the second film, The Crimes of Grindelwald, will be released on November 16, but producers are clearly already looking ahead to the next film in J.K. Rowling’s latest wizarding movie series. Johnny confirmed his involvement in the as-yet-untitled third film in a new interview, telling Collider that he and his fellow castmates will begin production on Fantastic Beasts 3 ‘in the middle of next year’. The actor said he relished the challenge of playing a villain in a fictional realm where ‘the possibilities… are wide open, so you can really try anything.’
