Rumors: Johnny to Star in a Matthew Mellon Biopic

The life of billionaire Matthew Mellon is considered to be made into a movie and Johnny is said to be interested to participate.

Matthew Mellon led a fast-paced life of privilege before his unexpected death in April at age 54, and now actor Johnny Depp is reportedly considering playing the banking heir in a potential film about his life.

The New York Post reports that Mellon’s family is “divided over the project,” which is in early stages as “a screenplay being shopped.” One source told the Post that if the film comes to fruition it could fulfill a dream of Matthew’s: “He would have loved this idea … He used to say, ‘How cool would it be to have a movie about my crazy life?'”

Mellon descended from the Mellon and Drexel families of Bank of New York Mellon and Drexel Burnham Lambert and reportedly came into trusts worth $25 million when he was just 21 years old. After graduating from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, he worked in fashion, telecommunications, and finance, most recently as global ambassador for the digital currency company Ripple Labs.

Cryptocurrency is how he turned his millions into a fortune that’s been valued at more than $1 billion, thanks in part to a savvy early investment in Bitcoin recommended to him by the Winklevoss twins, Cameron and Tyler. He was also married twice—first to Jimmy Choo co-founder Tamara Mellon and then to designer Nicole Hanley Mellon until mid-2015.

Johnny Makes Surprise Visit as Grindelwald at Comic-Con

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!

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald New Comic-Con Trailer

Here it is, Potterheads! The announced official second trailer for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald has been revealed at Comic-Con in San Diego, California this morning, July 21.

The trailer features some new scenes of Johnny as Grindelwald which we haven’t seen before. No more words needed. Watch it and enjoy!

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald Comic-Con Poster Teases New Trailer

Draw your wands, Potterheads. The newest Comic-Con poster for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald teases teases a Comic-Con trailer that should arrive this morning during Warner Bros. Pictures’ Hall H panel. Fans who are waiting to get more sneak peeks at the movie only need a little more patience until that trailer goes live.

The poster released for Comic-Con shows Newt and his friends front and center, surrounded by magical symbols. Trailer-Track reports that a new full-length trailer for the movie was rated by the UK’s BBFC, which makes it almost sure that a new trailer will debut during the studio’s Hall H presentation at SDCC on Saturday, July 21.

Many fans wondered a lot about the first trailer for Fantastic Beasts 2 because it didn’t feature much of Johnny’s character Grindelwald. Being that the movie is about hunting him and his followers down, that seemed a little weird. Some speculated that Warner Bros. is downplaying Johnny’s role in the movie after domestic abuse allegations arose against him. Many speculated that the film has less to do with the character than initially thought. Then there are those who believe it’s because Grindelwald won’t become relevant to the franchise until later movies (there are plans for five in total).

Some fans also think it’s odd that Jude Law recently admitted that he has no scenes with Johnny in the new film. The Harry Potter books hinted that the two men once had a close relationship when younger, potentially a romantic one. Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling also admitted that she always saw Dumbledore as gay. However, it seems that the movies plan on shying away from that, at least for now. For fans, the wait for a new trailer still feels like forever. After that, though, the wait for the movie will feel even longer. But winter will arrive before they know it, and with it comes the answers to at least some of these questions they have about Grindelwald, Dumbledore, and Newt and his fantastic creatures.

1989 Photo Shoots

As announced a while ago, I’m working on getting the gallery complete and all set up. Replacing low quality images with HQ ones and adding missing images. I also remove duplicates plus start to re-sort images since some are in the wrong albums or categories.

So, today I finished updating and editing the 1989 section of photo shoots of Johnny. Pictures for magazines such as Rolling Stone have been added/moved etc. Enjoy!

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald Stills

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!

Johnny Admirers Fear for His Health

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.

First Look of Johnny in “City of Lies”

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.
