Last night the Hollywood Film Awards made their first televised appearance—and it was a weird one. In one of the night’s stranger moments, a barely coherent Johnny Depp took the stage to introduce talent manager Shep Gordon, but ended up cursing a bunch first.

The ghost of Peter Sellers should get second billing in Mortdecai, the upcoming comic romp starring Johnny Depp as a bumbling English art dealer slash secret agent. Based on a trio of 1970s novels by the eccentric Kyril Bonfigliolo—who modeled his daffy antihero after himself—Mortdecai evokes the hijinks of the Pink Panther franchise, with a Clouseauvian character, stolen riches, and a man-servant who’s a glutton for punishment.
The first teaser set a whimsical tone, backed with the scene-setting vocals of Shirley Bassey’s “Big Spender.” The new clip reinforces that throwback theme with Tom Jones’ “It’s Not Unusual,” and we get to see Depp’s Charlie Mortdecai dodge danger, get handsy with a “well known nymphomaniac” (Olivia Munn), and be cowed by his gorgeous wife (Gwyneth Paltrow).
It could be fun. READ FULL STORY

How did a low budget horror movie about a diminutive Irish monster spawn five sequels, a new reboot, and the career of Jennifer Aniston? EW tracks the deranged history of the Leprechaun franchise.
British actor Warwick Davis says he has “specific” fans—well-wishers who want to discuss just one of the several fantasy franchises in which he has appeared. “People talk about Star Wars, people talk about Harry Potter,” he explains, “and people talk about Leprechaun.”
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).
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.

The framing device of the new, 15-years-in-the-making documentary For No Good Reason finds Johnny Depp paying a visit to the film’s subject, British artist Ralph Steadman, at his home in Britain. Director Charlie Paul admits getting that footage proved a little tricky given that Steadman was initially none to keen on participating in the project at all, and Johnny Depp is, well, Johnny Depp.
