Shantaram and the Rum Diary postponed

The screenwriters’ strike in Hollywood, which first hit only television productions, is now also harming Shantaram.

Shantaram, which was scheduled to begin shooting in India in February, has been put on hold due to strike-related script issues that threatened to push production into India?s monsoon season.

Also put on hold for Depp is The Rum Diary, an adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson?s novel for Warner Independent Pictures. Bruce Robinson, whose 1987 comedy Withnail & I gained a cult following, was adapting and directing.

Rum, loosely based on Thompson?s experience working as a freelance journalist in Puerto Rico in the late 1950s, is in the development stages. Depp had planned to make the film after Shantaram.
Depp next appears on the big screen in Sweeney Todd, which premieres December 3 in New York.

essay by lizzy4depp

by lizzy4depp

We are sure most of you know by now that Johnny and Tim Burtons new movie, Sweeney Todd is getting ready to premiere next month. Among all the excitement, we thought that a lot of you would be interested in learning a little about the story of Sweeney Todd and some of the planning that has preceded the opening of this original endeavor that Johnny has chosen to partake in.

The story of Sweeney Todd is legendary among those in London and holds a kind of mystery not unlike Jack the Ripper. The actual Sweeney was born in London’s East End in October of 1756. He was arrested and served a five-year prison term when he was wrongly accused of stealing a pocket watch. He gained his barber skills in prison when he learned the trade from another barber named Plummer. After he was released he took a few pounds he had stolen in prison and set up his shop next to the St. Dustan’s Church. Sweeney’s shop stood right down the street from his longtime girlfriend Margery Lovett’s bar where she made her famous meat pies. The first murder happened right on the streets of London, where a man was seen arguing with a barber. The barber was seen to take out his white coat; he slit the other man’s throat with a barber’s blade and ran off into the fog. The story of Sweeney’s shop tells of customers who would go for a barber visit and never return. They would be seated in the revolving chair that stood over a trapdoor to a cellar. Sweeney would slit their throats with his razor and they would fall below to the basement. His lover discovered a tunnel that ran from his shop underneath to hers. She hatched a plan to dispose of the bodies by grinding up the meat and putting it into her famous pies. Sweeney was executed by hanging on January 25th 1802. He was hung by the rope outside the Newgate Prison. His body was given over to medical research, which has the ironic ending, as his bodies ended up like his victims, with his insides on a plate. His girlfriend Margery Lovett did not hang because she was found in the prison poisoned to death. It is not known if she killed herself or was murdered.

This story as a whole seems just down the right alley for Tim Burton, except for the fact that the story he chose to tell was not adapted from the historical accounts only but, after the Broadway musical written by Stephen Sondheim. The dark musical of Sweeney Todd has been well known and performed for years in the musical arena. Tim Burton has had the idea in his mind for at least four years, when he went to visit Johnny at his home in the south of France and gave Johnny the musical soundtrack as a gift. He didn’t reveal his intentions at the time but Johnny said that he was puzzled by the gift.

two new staffers!!!

Happily we have to announce, that we added two new members to the JDorg staff.

1. as Conny could not manage the galleries/magazines section anymore, Jenna will do her job in the future. Jenna already donated many screencaps to the site before and is active member in the forums. I’m sure, she will do a great job.

2. lizzy4depp has joined us to bring us lots of info. She’ll write for JDorg in the future. That’s what we always needed: someone bringing this site content, and we’ve found such a talented person.

As a stand-in-present, lizzy4depp already brought us some stuff, which you can read:

– she re-wrote the first part of the biography, which will become longer and longer now. The following years are in work.

– she wrote an essay about the history of Sweeney Todd, which is absolutely informative and should be read!

– and an essay about Johnny himself
