There must have been something wrong with the transferring of two movie stills of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald which I thought I had uploaded a while ago. I reckoned they weren’t even in the gallery albums.
I reuploaded them to the image archive. Enjoy!

Happy 55th birthday, Johnny. We wish you all the best of everything!
Today, June 09, 2018, Johnny is celebrating his 55th birthday and on behalf of Johnny Depp Network we’d like to wish him a wonderful time on that special day. All the best of everything to him and may he spend his special day with the ones he loves. He’s currently touring with the Hollywood Vampires, so he’s hopefully having a great day today.
We’d also like to take the chance to thank him again for so many years of bringing us joy, happiness, tears, laughter, smiles with the characters you portray in movies and music you play on stage. You’re simply amazing and your talent is touching our souls. Make sure to keep up the good work to enrich our lives with many more special moments with you.
We love you!
The picture you can see on the left was taken in Russia last week, where Johnny had been touring with his band Hollywood Vampires before they headed over to Germany, where they’re currently performing. After a Johnny admirer posted this picture with Johnny on her Instagram account, statements such as “he looks ill” or “he looks so pale and skinny” have been making their rounds on several social media platforms. So, among comments from other fans who told them how lucky they were to have met their idol, were concerns over Johnny’s appearance.
Just to give you an example of how people reacted, comments like those were not uncommon:
‘I think that my hero looks ill,’ said one concerned admirer on Facebook.
‘He looks thin,’ said another.
Others did not seem to recognize the Pirates of the Caribbean star at all.
‘F*** me is that Johnny Depp?’ remarked one Twitter user.
Since I do not like spreading rumors, neither about one of his movie/music projects, nor about his personal stuff, I decided to share this nevertheless. I personally do accept his decisions and privacy etc. and I know very well how a certain angle of a photo or the light might make you look different . So, I read a lot of statements from people who have met him throughout the tour, confirming that he was all healthy and happy when meeting them. I’m asking you guys: please do NOT spread any rumors about health issues or whatever when there are none! Yes, it’s up to you to be concerned and worried when seeing someone losing weight or whatever, but Johnny seems to be fine, so please let your concerns stay concerns and not turn into rumors.
A first movie still of Johnny and Forest Whitaker in the upcoming movie City of Lies (previously known as LAbyrinth) has been revealed today.
Just a quick reminder of what the movie’s going to be about:
Based on the true story of one of the most notorious and unsolved cases in recent time, CITY OF LIES is a provocative thriller revealing a never-before-seen look at the infamous murder of The Notorious B.I.G. shortly following the death of Tupac. L.A.P.D. detective Russell Poole (Johnny Depp) has spent years trying to solve his biggest case, but after two decades, the investigation remains open. ‘Jack’ Jackson (Forest Whitaker), a reporter desperate to save his reputation and career, is determined to find out why. In search of the truth, the two team up and unravel a growing web of institutional corruption and lies. Relentless in their hunt, these two determined men threaten to uncover the conspiracy and crack the foundation of the L.A.P.D. and an entire city.
The official release date is set to September 07, 2018.
So, photographer Ross Halfin took two new photos of Johnny before he was leaving with the rest of the Hollywood Vampires members to finally start their tour. As always, they’re tagged, but I added them to the image archive.
So, Johnny and the Hollywood Vampires are finally touring again, starting with a great show at the Showroom at Turning Stone in Verona, USA on May 17. I added some pictures from the rehearsals (May 16) and during the show (May 17) to the photo gallery. Enjoy!
By the way, Johnny did not only play the guitar but sang a David Bowie song as well!
So, with this year’s Cannes 2018 film festival well underway, new film announcements have been revealed and new rumors are doing the rounds. One rumor that has come into the open is that Johnny is has reached out to Colombian director Ciro Guerra to work with him, possibly on his next film, JM Coetzee adaptation Waiting For The Barbarians.
Johnny would join Mark Rylance and Robert Pattinson in the project. The producers include Michael Fitzgerald (Three Burials). The film will be Guerra’s English-language debut and was first announced in 2016. It is being lined up to shoot in autumn this year.
Coetzee, a recipient of the Nobel Prize in Literature, is adapting his own novel. The story is a political thriller published in 1980, about a British magistrate in a small colonial town who begins to question his loyalty to the Empire.
A Chuckey woman who sent $750 to what she thought was a charitable foundation operated by actor Johnny Depp reported the suspected scam to the Greene County Sheriff’s Department. The apparent swindle happened on March 2 and was reported Thursday.
The victim said that she accepted a friend request on Facebook “that stated they were Johnny Depp and had asked her to donate money to his foundation or charity,” Deputy Nakia Tweed said in a report.
She got two loans and sent a total of $750 to the foundation named by the person purporting to be Depp, the report said. The foundation address was unknown at the time the report was filed.
The victim was then contacted via Facebook Messenger and told that she had a $6,000 check coming to her home “and was asked to distribute the money to various locations in $1,000 increments,” the report said. The woman “was able to get approximately $2,000 sent without issue” and was then told to send the remainder of the money to an address in Florida, which was unknown at the time the report was filed.
She told deputies she was afraid to prosecute and only requested a report be put on file for her bank. She also filed a report with the Greeneville Police Department after attempting to transmit some of the money by Western Union, the report said.
“The identity of the person or persons that she had contact with by text and Facebook were unknown at this time,” the sheriff’s department report said.
