“Waiting for the Barbarians” is to premiere at this month’s Venice Film Festival in Italy.

It’s said that for almost 20 years film-makers struggle to get investors interested in a film adaptation of Waiting for the Barbarians, JM Coetzee’s novel, dealing with a complex tale of immigration and integration.
Finally, the film, starring Mark Rylance, Johnny Depp and Robert Pattinson, is receiving its world premiere at this month’s Venice Film Festival in Venice, Italy.

All the actors were motivated by a desire to convey the “message” of the film, as well as explore its “artistic component,” said Andrea Iervolino, one of the producers.

“Another production company was trying to do this movie for 20 years. Then they proposed the idea … to me and Monika Bacardi, my business partner. We loved [it] right away because this movie, like the book, speaks about integration and immigration in a world of division,” Iervolino told the Observer.

“Now all governments try to push away immigration, so immigrants are not really welcome. But this movie will show how important and beautiful integration and immigration can be … We believe that the message which this movie gives is very important, more important than 10 or 20 years ago.”

Johnny portrays Colonel Joll, a heartless bureaucrat despatched by the Empire’s secret service amid claims that the barbarians are preparing to mutiny.

Hollywood Vampires performed their cover verison of David Bowie’s “Heroes” on The Late Late Show With James Corden.

Yesterday, July 30, Hollywood Vampires appeared on The Late Late Show With James Corden (shown on CBS) to perform their cover version of David Bowie‘s Heroes for the Stage 56 audience. The leading vocals were, again, sung by Johnny himself.

You can watch the performance in the video above. Enjoy!

Hollywood Vampires performed two songs on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night.

Last night, Hollywood Vampires appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live!‘s outdoor stage to play two songs: first, David Bowie’s “Heroes” and their own “I Want My Now.” I was glad to see that Johnny took on the lead in “Heroes”, turning it in more than just a heavy metal ballad. He really touched me with his performance – again!

For those of you who don’t know yet, “I Want My Now” is the opening track on the new album Rise (June 21st). The entire album contains 16 tracks, is produced by Tommy Henriksen and is the second full-length effort from the band. “Heroes” will also be on the album.

Make sure to watch the band’s performance on Jimmy’s video above. I also added photos (screen captures will follow!) to the photo gallery.

Today, March 27, 2019, Johnny attended the opening of the National Museum of Qatar in Qatar, Doha. (Did you notice how handsome he looked ;))

We added 14 images to our photo gallery, some found on social media, such as Twitter and Instagram. All credits go to their original owners.

Yesterday, July 21, Johnny made a surprise appearance at 2018 San Diego Comic-Con during the Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald portion of Warner Bros.’ panel in character as the evil wizard Grindelwald. For the majority of the presentation for the highly-anticipated wizarding world sequel, Johnny Depp wasn’t on stage and most in the crowd assumed that he simply was too busy to turn up at the event. However, toward the end of the showcase, he walked out on stage in full Grindelwald gear and delivered a speech in character.

The speech help by Johnn focuses on the “good of humanity.” It was a classic villain’s point of view monologue, ultimately about how a lot of people are going to suffer for what he perceives to be the greater good. Johnny wasn’t revealed until the very end of the first movie, but that set him up to be a major part of Fantastic Beasts 2 and, in all likelihood, a fixture of future movies in the planned-five movie franchise. Warner Bros. also revealed a brand new trailer for the movie during the SDCC panel which you can watch below.

A few photos taken of Johnny during his speech have been added to the photo gallery. Enjoy!

He’s done it again – Captain Jack Sparrow took time from his pirate duties to visit patients at a children’s hospital in Vancouver, Canada.

Johnny, in his role as Jack Sparrow from the “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie franchise, surprised patients at BC Children’s Hospital on Monday (August 14). According to the hospital’s Facebook page, Johnny spent over five hours meeting face-to-face with patients in the oncology, general pediatrics and neurology wards.

“Meeting Captain Jack was a dream come true for my daughter,” said Sarah Kertcher, mother of 7-year-old Madison, a patient at the hospital. “He never broke character once and was so generous with his time. He was truly here for the kids and it brought tears to my eyes to see how special he made each one feel.”

Johnny’s visit to the Vancouver hospital was not his first time making a unexpected appearance to fans — in 2015, he, dressed as Sparrow, surprised patients at a children’s hospital in Australia.

The fifth and most recent “Pirates of the Caribbean” film was released in May.

Johnny has arrived in Vancouver and — much to the delight of his admirers — he’s been out and about on the town. Of course, he is there to film his latest movie project Richard Says Goodbye.

To the surprise of Vancouverites, Johnny, sporting disheveled hair, turned up outside the Blackbird Public House on Dunsmuir Street in the downtown business district on July 25. Ever a good sport, he was willing to pose for snaps and chats — and even the occasional kiss.

Fan videos and photos soon lit up social media.

Platoon co-stars Johnny Depp, Charlie Sheen and Kevin Dillon reunited on Sunday in honor of the iconic war film’s 30th anniversary.

The 1987 film, which also starred Willem Dafoe, Forest Whitaker and Tom Berenger, won four Oscars, including Best Picture.

The picture was posted on Kevin Dillon’s official Instagram account and he wrote:

#platoon 30 year #reunion last night at #johnnydepp house #goodtimes @charliesheen

The film was one of Johnny’s first roles, and put Sheen, 51, in the role of a leading man following his memorable cameo performance in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off the year before.

In the 30 years since the film was made, all of the co-stars have gone on to lead very full lives. Depp recently opened up to ET about his teenage daughter, Lily Rose Depp.
