Johnny Depp talks 'Pirates 4,' 'Lone Ranger,' 'Don Quixote' and The Mad Hatter
The 'Public Enemies' star is a busy, busy man and he chats a bit about several upcoming projects
The two sides of Johnny Depp are currently very much on display. On one hand, you have the restrained Depp, looking natty in a period-specific suit playing John Dillinger in Michael Mann's "Public Enemies." The other side of Depp can be seen in the newly released promotional shots from his turn as The Mad Hatter in Tim Burton's "Alice in Wonderland."
"After doing something like John Dillinger, a performance where it's so restrained because of the responsibility you have to that guy, the Mad Hatter was like being fired out of a cannon," Depp tells reporters at the junket for "Public Enemies." "The Hatter was great fun and, again, it's one of those things where you're just amazed that that I'm not fired. I truly am."
In addition to his umpteenth collaboration with Burton, Depp has a schedule so busy even he doesn't know which films are coming next. After "Public Enemies," "Alice in Wonderland," the Hunter S. Thompson adaptation "The Rum Diary" and "Rango," an animated reunion with "Pirates of the Caribbean" director Gore Verbinski, Depp's possibilities are myriad.
