Johnny to produce Caliber

28 January 2006 – Barely a year after opening shop, Toronto’s Speakeasy Comics has been approached by HBO to serialize TV’s No. 1 Mafia clan, and has Johnny Depp knocking at its door by BARRETT HOOPER for the THE GLOBE AND MAIL.

Speakeasy has already cozied up to actors Rosario Dawson and Johnny Depp, director John Woo, and the guy who made Catwoman (although Fortier asks that you not judge the director based on that bit of star-driven, studio-controlled kitty litter). The plan calls for Speakeasy to publish four new comics, starting in May, that will then be made into feature films.

Occult Crimes Taskforce will publish in May, along with Caliber, a reimagining of the Arthurian legend as a western, with King Arthur as the town sheriff, Lancelot as a gunslinger and Guinevere as a saloonkeeper. It’s based on an idea brought to Speakeasy by Depp and his producing partner. Depp will produce and possibly star in the movie version; Woo, who directed Face/Off and Mission: Impossible 2, will direct. “We got lucky and attached some good people to it,” says Fortier. “John Woo was supposed to make another western, but the funding fell through so he jumped on board pretty quick.”

Veteran Lee: Number One Actor is Johnny Depp

Veteran actor Christopher Lee has criticised the new wave of young Hollywood stars, claiming they are chosen for their looks rather than their talent – By Anita Singh, PA Showbusiness Editor, Press Association Newswire. 18 January 2006.

The 83-year-old screen legend lamented the state of modern cinema.
Movie bosses prize beauty and youth over acting experience, with often disastrous results, he said. The only young actor Lee did find praise for was Johnny Depp. The pair have co-starred together in three films, most recently Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Lee said: ‘The number one actor in the world as far as I’m concerned is Johnny Depp. He’s not afraid of a challenge, he’s not afraid of anything.”

People Magazine – January 30, 2006 – The mailbag page (page 8) of this issue has a short follow-up on a earlier story People did introducing a young girl suffering from metastatic osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer in A Place to Say Goodbye, October 31, 2005.

Caitlin Dolahan, 18, received a phone call from Johnny Depp according to this report from People before she died. Below is the follow-up story in it’s entirity.

Caitlin’s Battle Comes to an End

In many ways Caitlin Dolaghan was just like any other California teen -worried about getting her driver’s license and what to wear to the prom. But when we introduced Caitlin then 18, to our readers last fall in a story about the nation’s first free standing hospice for kids (“A Place to Say Goodbye,” Oct. 31, 2005) she was also battling metastatic osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer. Earlier this month Caitlin lost her fight. She died at home on Jan. 12, surrounded by her mother Carol, dad John, sister Peggy and brother Wilson.

PEOPLE chronicled Caitlin’s struggle and also the time she spent at George Mark Children’s House , an extraordinary San Leandro, Calif., facility for dying kids, where she volunteered as an art instructor. Says GMCH cofounder Kathy Hull: “Caitlin’s willingness to share and the time and energy she spent to tell her story to so many people were amazing.” Our readers thought so too. Some 250 made financial donations to the home. Two people called Caitlin personally to offer support: Amy Lee, lead singer of Caitlin’s favorite band, Evanescence, and Johnny Depp, who phoned from a movie set in the Bahamas to invite Caitlin to Los Angeles – a trip she never got the chance to make. The memory of Caitlin’s courage remains vivid for those of us who came to know her.

Donations in her honor can be made to Comfort for Kids at

It’s a clash among three characters – including his Will Turner and Johnny Depp’s Jack Sparrow – “on a big water-mill wheel as it rolls down a hill. And we fight on top of it, and around it, and inside it. It’s crazy.”
