Johnny Depp Dresses as Jack Sparrow to Visit Sick Kids

Johnny Depp Dresses as Jack Sparrow to Visit Sick Kids

Johnny brought some festive cheer to some sick children after dressing up as Captain Jack.

The Hollywood superstar surprised patients at Great Ormond Street Hospital in London when he turned up in his full Pirates of Caribbean costume.

The hospital holds a very special place in his heart after his daughter Lily-Rose was treated for renal failure there in 2007.

So yesterday he gave poorly kids an early Christmas present, but donning his famous costume and becoming Captain Jack for the day.

One onlooker who saw the 53-year-old star posted a snap on Instagram, and wrote: “This is actual Johnny Depp. Just came in to the hospital. I’m so confused.” Another person added a snap saying: “Yes folks that is indeed Johnny Depp with my lovely niece! One of the few upsides of being stuck in Great Ormond St for Xmas is you get some pretty awesome visitors.”

Johnny has spoken in the past about his appreciation for the hospital, and the treatment Lily-Rose received.

Speaking on The Graham Norton Show last December he said: “For me it’s a gift. They give me the gift.”

He added: “When my daughter was ill in Great Ormond Street, it was the darkest period of my life. I’d always done these visits but after that experience the visits became more and more important.

“The kids are so courageous but to be able to bring a smile or a giggle to the parents means everything in the world to me.”

Johnny Contributes to Film by 16-Year Old Cancer Patient

A group of A-list talent came together in November to help 16-year old cancer patient Anthony Jonathan Conti fulfill his dream of writing and starring in his own film. Johnny Depp, J.K. Simmons, Laura Dern, Penelope Ann Miller, Chad Coleman, and Richard Chamberlain were joined by David Lynch, Catherine Hardwicke, Theodore Melfi, Sam Raimi, Peter Farrelly, and Sean Furst for The Black Ghiandola, a post-apocalyptic zombie story about a young man whose family has been killed and who risks his life to save a young girl he has grown to love. Filming took place November 18-20.

Anthony, diagnosed this summer with stage 4 Adrenal Cortical Cancer, stars in and co-wrote the film with Scott Kosar (Texas Chainsaw Massacre), with additional writing by Wash Westmoreland (Still Alice). The production was made possible by the Make A Film Foundation, a nonprofit established in 2007 that helps children enduring serious or life-threatening medical conditions to create short film legacies by teaming them with industry professionals who volunteer their time.

Open Road Acquires Johnny Depp Crime Thriller ‘Labyrinth’

Open Road Pictures has acquired the crime thriller “Labyrinth” starring Johnny Depp as a detective who investigates the Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. murders.

Brad Furman is directing with production set to start in mid-November.

Miramax is partnering and co-financing with Open Road Films for U.S. distribution. Good Universe is handling international sales for remaining territories.

“Labyrinth” is an edgy and timely investigative thriller that will make a great addition to our slate,” said Open Road CEO Tom Ortenberg in a statement. “Johnny Depp is perfect for the project and we are thrilled to be in business with him, Miriam Segal, Brad Furman and the rest of the filmmaking team.”

In the pic, disgraced LAPD detective Russell Poole (Depp), is a beaten man, unable to solve his biggest case – the murders of music icons Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G. After two decades, the case remains open. “Jack” Jackson, a reporter desperate to save his reputation and career, is determined to find out why. He tracks down Poole, and the two enter into an uneasy partnership to finally put this case to rest. As Poole relives the unbelievable story of power, corruption and crime, Jackson begins to unravel a growing web of scandal and deception. Relentless in their hunt for the truth, these two broken men threaten to crack the foundation of the LAPD all the while fighting for their own redemption.

Miriam Segal and her Good Films are producing. Christian Contreras is writing the screenplay adapted from Randall Sullivan’s book “LAbyrinth: A Detective Investigates the Murders of Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G., the Implication of Death Row Records’ Suge Knight, and the Origins of the Los Angeles Police Scandal.”

The deal was negotiated on behalf of Open Road Films by Tom Ortenberg, CEO, and Chief Operating Officer and General Counsel, Elliott Kleinberg; and by UTA Independent Film Group and WME Global on behalf of the filmmakers along with Good Universe.

New role in Game of Thrones?

Of course this is an april fools joke, those visiting our site for years already knew it!

We just received the info, that Johnny is set to play a small role in the next Game of Thrones Season, not yet shot. I don’t want to say much, because it may spoil those, who have not read the books, but it the “kindly man”. The kindly man is a priest of the Many-Faced God and has different (also ugly) appearances in the book, so it may fit Johnny’s interest in looking ugly and different, see here for more spoiler!! info. There’s just fanart yet regarding his appearance. Production starts July 2015 till late in the year and as it is just a small role it may just take some days, and will premiere spring 2016.
