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.
On Friday, November 11, Johnny and his Hollywood Vampires bandmate Joe Perry attended the Classic Rock Awards in Tokyo, Japan.
Grinning at photographers and waving to the crowd, the Alice Through The Looking Glass star wore a mostly black outfit featuring an inky-coloured shirt, jet-black jeans and dark buckled leather boots.
I added 30 LQ images to the photo gallery and will replace them with HQ ones as soon as I find some! Enjoy!
When news broke that Johnny was set to “co-star” in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2, the sequel to this mont’s wizarding world expansion Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, speculation immediately zeroed in on who Johnny might play. Given that Gellert Grindelwald, former friend of Albus Dumbledore, supposedly has a major role to play in this new Fantastic Beasts franchise, folks began wondering if Depp might be bringing the dark wizard to life. Well, yes, it’s true: Johnny Depp is playing Gellert Grindelwald.
The news was confirmed by director David Yates himself, who directed the final four Harry Potter films as well as Fantastic Beasts and is returning for the sequel. In speaking with The Leaky Cauldron, he revealed why they chose Johnny to fill such a pivotal role:
“The whole principal of casting the movie was go with the best actor. Go for the most inspired, interesting, right fit for that character. And as we approached Grindelwald we thought, ‘Who’s going to take this in an interesting direction?’ 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. Johnny Depp is a real artist. He’s created several characters who have really resonated in our popular culture. He’s a really brilliant, brilliant actor. We were excited about seeing what he would do with this guy, the character. He’s fearless; he’s imaginative; he’s ambitious. We thought he would do something fun and special. So we went for him, purely on that selfish basis. We don’t care if he’s famous or not famous. We just know he’s interesting.”
Johnny was honored at a charity concert in Los Angeles yesterday, Thursday night (November 03).
He was presented with the Rhonda’s Kiss Healing And Hope Award at the event that raises money to support the needs of cancer patients.
He also autographed one of his Signature Duesenberg Alliance Series guitars that was then auctioned off in aid of Rhonda’s Kiss nonprofit organization.
I added 3 LQ tagged images to the photo gallery. I hope to find HQ untagged ones soon! By the way, I’m glad I’m able to upload images again.
Edit: I added a lot more MQ untagged images to the image archive! Enjoy!
Great news to all the Harty Potter fans among us (which includes me!). It’s officially been confirmed that Johnny will be featured in the sequel to Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. The second movie will be released in 2018 and directed by David Yates with Eddie Redmayne returning as Newt Scamander.
No further details have been revealed about Johnny’s role except that it’a going to be a co-starring one.
Stay tuned for more information! By they way, I’m super excited about those news since I’ve been a huge Harry Potter since the first book. Now my favorite actor is going to take part in my favorite book saga.
First of all, I’d like to apologize for the server issues at the moment. I’m not able to upload the recent images to the photo gallery due to problems with the server connections. I hope to get that fixed as soon as possible!
Good news, though! Johnny has been nominated twice for the People’s Choice Awards 2017! And again it’s time to for us to choose the official nominees in movies, music, TV, and digital for the PCAs. Johnny is nominated as Favorite Movie Icon (click here to vote) and Favorite Movie Actor (click here to vote). Make sure to vote for Johnny! Thank you!
Bit by bit, little hints and rumors are revealed regarding Johnny’s upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales movie, which will be released in 2017. Since he’s been missing in the first teaser trailer, fans are being concerned that he might not play a huge role in the movie at all. However, it appears that the producers intentionally took Capt. Jack Sparrow out of the trailer to catch the attention of the viewers.
The fans of Johnny Depp also known as Jack Sparrow can stop holding their breath as reports say that the endearingly naughty pirate will be present in Pirates Of The Caribbean 5. In fact, Capt. Jack Sparrow will reportedly have a new apple to his eye – his weakness, a woman.
Not much has been revealed about that though. Only rumors and hints have been published! Stay tuned for more. But more is certain about the aspect of love in the upcoming fifth Pirates movie.
Orlando Bloom’s character, Will Turner, will not be seen with the love of his life in the film. Elizabeth Swann, played by Keira Knightley, will not be returning in Pirates Of The Caribbean 5, which sparked speculations that Will Turner will have a new lady love.
The exit of Elizabeth Swann will be compensated by a new character, Carina Smyth. Kaya Scodelario will bring Carina Smyth to life, who is said to be Capt. Jack Sparrow’s lady love. However, Carina Smyth is – ironically – the daughter of Capt. Barbossa. Chaos ensues as Capt. Barbossa learns that his enemy is in love with his daughter.
Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales will set sail on May 26, 2017 (US).
So, this post does not contain any news regarding Johnny or his projects! It’: rather about an administrative issue: images of Johnny and Amber in our photo gallery.
I received an e-mail from someone complaining about the fact that I uploaded images of 2015 that show Johnny and Amber together. She called it inappropriate. First of all, I’m thankful for any kind of suggestions and feedback. However, what I don’t like is when people become offensive and rude even if they don’t understand and try to get to the bottom of why someone does certain things.
I uploaded those pictures because they belong to Johnny’s career of the last two years. I’m not going to delete them because he and Amber decided to get divorced. What if this was an Angelina Jolie fan site? Should one delete all pictures showing her and Brad because they do have some issues due to their divorce? I think not!
Not for one second I believed in the rumors that Amber has spread about Johnny and their relationship. I think that if you’re a true fan, that’s definitely what you do. So I never feared she might ever be a jeopardy to his career. She’s been a huge and important part of his life in the recent time and he most probably does not consider it to be bad only. There had been good moments either.
That I uploaded those images does not mean I’m a supporter of their marriage or whatever. It’s merely a “natural” thing to keep fans updated about what he had been up to in the past years. This includes events he attended with Amber. I’m not going to delete any pictures that show Johnny and co-workers he ever had a conflict with either. I’m rather updating the gallery and adding missing pictures.
I’m not going to post rumors or gossip about the divorce case. That’s his privacy. Posting pictures of PUBLIC APPEARANCES that have nothing to do with their relationship status is, in my opinion, a complete different thing. I’m not even completely updated when it comes to their divorce issues. I’d say I don’t really care because a website tells you different things than another. And truth be told, I think it’s their “problem”. Johnny and Amber should be left alone and not be bothered with rumors making their lives any harder than they already are.
Johnny and Amber had not only been wife and husband, but also co-stars. I won’t delete any images of them in movies nor of public appearances. They belong to his career and do not represent any inappropriate material. My aim is to make this site complete! And provide fans with material, information, images of all of Johnny’s projects and years, including 2015, the year he had brought along Amber to many of the events he attended. That’s it!
I’m sorry if you think about it differently.
Last weekend, Disney unveiled the first trailer for Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, which was met with an enthusiastic response from fans. To thank the millions who watched the trailer, director Joachim Rønning shared a special treat with his followers, a wanted poster featuring Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) from Pirates of the Caribbean 5. While there was a wanted poster shown in the first trailer, the director showed off a different design through social media.
The director took to Instagram yesterday to share this poster, which features an artistic rendition of Jack Sparrow’s face. The poster shown in the trailer was quite similar, but it showed Jack’s fully body, with a sword in hand, as he stood on a dock. This new poster describes Jack as a “notorious pirate,” and while there is a bounty on his head, we can’t see the amount the bounty is for. Here’s what Joachim Ronning had to say to his Instagram followers.
A big thanks to the millions of you out there that have watched our new teaser trailer for PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: Dead Men Tell No Tales! I’m so grateful for your enthusiasm and comments. The last couple of days have really reminded me why I love movies – and why I wanted to make this one ❤️☠️ (link in bio) #potc5 #teaser #trailer #moretocome
