Johnny Depp (and daughter) to star in Kevin Smith comic book movie

Johnny Depp and Kevin Smith have decided to bring their work closer to home. Or rather, their home closer to work.

The two Hollywood dads will team up for Yoga Hosers with their daughters Lily-Rose Depp and Harley Quinn Smith starring as 15-year-old yoga-obsessed girls both named Colleen. The film will be the second installment in Smith’s True North Trilogy about Canadian myths and culture. It follows next month’s Tusk, starring Justin Long and Haley Joel Osment, who will also appear in Hosers. The action-adventure follows the Colleens as they fight an ancient evil threatening to ruin their school party; they battle the baddie alongside a legendary man-hunter from Montreal named Guy Lapointe (Depp).

Depp has long been rumored to play Lapointe in Tusk, but the studio has never confirmed that casting. In addition to the Depps, Smith, and the Tusk cast, the “comic book movie” will also star Veep‘s Tony Hale, Natasha Lyonne (Orange Is the New Black), Austin Butler (The Carrie Diaries), Adam Brody (The O.C.), Tyler Posey (Teen Wolf), and Jason Mewes (Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back).

'Pirates of the Caribbean 5' sets course for 2017 release

The last we saw of Captain Jack Sparrow, he was on a beach with ol’ scallywag Gibbs, reflecting on his decision to deny himself the Fountain of Youth. “Who’s to say I won’t live forever [anyway], eh?,” he says. Indeed. Despite some delays—and a Lone Ranger-sized hiccup—the long-awaited next chapter in the Pirates franchise, following 2011’s On Stranger Tides, has a new official release date: July 7, 2017.

Johnny Depp, Clint Eastwood, and Drew Barrymore introduce packed Warner Bros. slate at CinemaCon

It’s not yet clear if any of the stars Warner Bros. trotted out during the last panel of the CinemaCon trade show had the star power to eclipse the giant lizard that seemed to steal the show during the studio’s presentation of Godzilla, but the studio couldn’t be faulted for trying.

On hand to present just a few films from the robust slate — which includes the musical tribute to Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys, the mind-bending thriller Transcendence, and the family comedy Blended — were director Clint Eastwood, stars Johnny Depp and Morgan Freeman, and Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler, respectively.

But with Bryan Cranston doing panic and grief better than anyone, it looks like WB’s big hit of the summer with be Gareth Edwards’ take on the iconic Godzilla. READ FULL STORY

Johnny Depp's 'Transcendence' lands prime China release date

For a first-time director, Wally Pfister has landed one of the most coveted honors in the movies business.

No, not an Oscar — which Pfister already has for Inception‘s cinematography. Instead, Christopher Nolan’s go-to director of photography has nabbed a rare day-and-date release in China and the U.S. on April 18, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Moreover, the Chinese version of the film will be available in 3-D, while it will screen only in conventional 2-D theaters in the States.

This is a huge boost for Alcon Entertainment and Warner Bros., which co-produced the movie with China’s DMG. Many American blockbusters see their profits minimized by piracy in the gap between when they open in the U.S. and when they open in China, the world’s second-largest movie market. Last year, Iron Man 3, which was also co-produced by DMG, opened in China two days before it opened in the U.S., and it went on to become the Asian country’s second-biggest grosser of 2013, making $121.2 million. Fast & Furious 6, on the other hand, opened in China two months after it debuted in the U.S.; that film settled for $66.5 million.

Transcendence stars Johnny Depp as a brilliant artificial-intelligence futurist who becomes more than he ever dreamed when his consciousness is uploaded to the server. The film co-stars Rebecca Hall, Morgan Freeman, Paul Bettany, and Kate Mara. It’s Pfister’s first directing job after shooting seven of Nolan’s films, as well as Moneyball.
