As I already mentioned on Twitter, Johnny, a brand new interview and a new photoshoot by Jean-Baptiste Mondino for the Dior Sauvage 2018 campaign is featured in the InStyle Russia February 2018 issue. I uploaded the scans to the photo gallery. Note: I took the scans by myself, but I don’t like tagging photos. So, if you take them, please make sure to give credit. Thank you!
And I’m asking you for help: Does anyone speak Russian and English fluently and would be willing to translate the interview so I can repost it in English on the website? I’ll credit, of course. If so, feel free to contact me via mail debby [at] johnny-depp [dot] org or on out Twitter account @JDorg. Thank you so much in advance!
Los Angeles, Jan 11 (PTI) A television series based on Gregory David Roberts Mumbai-set novel, Shantaram, is in the works.
Paramount Television and its frequent collaborator Anonymous Content have landed the rights to the best-selling novel after a month-long, multiple outlet bidding war, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The mob drama was previously supposed to be a feature film, featuring Joel Edgerton and Amitabh Bachchan, with Johnny Depp and Brad Pitt as producers and Mira Nair as director.
The two companies have also acquired the rights to Roberts follow-up novel, The Mountain Shadow. Anonymous Contents Nicole Clemens and Steve Golin, and Andrea Barron will executive produce.
“As a huge admirer of the material, Ive been tracking this book for more than a decade,” Golin said in a statement.
In 2018, Dior introduces the new edition of Dior Sauvage, originally launched in 2015, in an Eau de Parfum interpretation. Dior’s in-house perfumer François Demachy imagines the Eau de Parfum as revealing new facets of Sauvage. The composition with oriental and vanilla facets is described as enveloping, suave, mysterious and sensual.
The new ad campaign also features Johnny as the face. The fragrance is available as a 60 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum.
I added the two campaign images to the photo gallery! Enjoy!

Alice Cooper says he, Johnny Depp and Joe Perry have written “a lot of new material” for their blistering new Vampires album, coming out in June.
The Vampires, Johnny, Joe, and Alice, started out as a tribute band, but this summer they are releasing an album featuring all-new, original, hard rock songs.
Alice Cooper announced to AZ Central, he, Johnny and Joe are recording their new Hollywood Vampires album from December 10 until February 26. That’s the space of time between Alice Cooper’s Pudding Concert and Alice’s return to his Paranormal Tour.
“I would imagine in that time that we’ll be going over to L.A. to record with the Vampires, because the Vampires, I think, are gonna go out in June.”
Alice Cooper described the album to AZ Central as a very hard rock album. Considering Johnny Depp and Joe Perry are providing two guitars as a strong backup for shock rocker Alice Cooper, that should be no surprise.
“It’s gonna be a hard-rock album. I know that. A very hard-rock album. Knowing those guys, their pedigree is hard rock. Joe Perry, Johnny and myself, we’re all sort of classic rock guys. So I think the songs will have a modern tinge to them but they’ll be pretty much classic guitar rock.”
New images have just been released from Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and I don’t know why I missed them. One of the movie stills even features Johnny as Gellert Grindelwald. Better late than never, but I finally uploaded the still to the photo gallery.
Johnny reprises his role of Gellert Grindelwald in the sequel and is seen standing in the street alongside Rosier (Poppy Corby-Tuech) in the just-released photos.
The sequel to 2016’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will hit theaters on Nov. 16, 2018.

Before I’m wishing everyone of you the best of everything for 2018, I wanted to let you know that I added magazine scans of three issues from earlier that year that featured either Johnny or one of his latest movie projects. The Entertainment Weekly and one of the Total Film issues feature some information on Murder on the Orient Express, while the Total Film Winter 2018 scans talk about the Fantastic Beasts sequel, featuring Johnny as Gellert Grindelwald.
The scans were taken by myself, so please do not take them without asking and crediting. Thank you!
This being said, I wish everyone a happy new year! See you next year!
I’m so sorry for the delay, but I finally managed to upload the most recent photoshoot of Johnny to the photo gallery. The images were taken on December 13, 2017 by photographer Ross Halfin, who said on his website:
Last week was in the company of Johnny Depp. I did a big photoshoot, Johnny was of course four hours late. But he did stay another four hours so got a lot done.
Then last Saturday I went to see him play with Marilyn Manson, who I hadn’t seen live for years. Manson was good in an entertaining, dark way.

David Yates describes Amber Heard as taking a “pop” at Johnny Depp.
When Johnny Depp was first announced as the actor chosen to play villainous Gellert Grindelwald in the new Harry Potter franchise Fantastic Beasts, director David Yates was the very first person to defend the decision. Even as he revealed the news during a 2016 press junket, Yates said, in seeming reference to either Johnny’s highly publicized and nasty split from actress Amber Heard, or mixed reviews of his recent work:
“In this business, it’s a weird old business. You’re brilliant one week, people are saying odd things the next, you go up and down. But no one takes away your pure talent.”
Discontent over Johnny’s casting has only grown among the Potter fandom since the first movie was released—especially since his character was name-checked in the title of its sequel, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. Now, Yates is doubling down on his defense of Depp and tackling the Heard divorce head on.
With the release of the first cast photo from the next Fantastic Beasts movie, it’s official: Johnny Depp will return as Gellert Grindelwald, the fiend and former love interest-turned-rival to Jude Law’s Albus Dumbledore. What’s more, Johnny’s character has been upgraded to title-worthy villain; W.B. also revealed today that the second film in J.K. Rowling’s second Harry Potter universe series will be subtitled The Crimes of Grindelwald.
