Depp and Burton first teamed up for the 1990’s film Edward Scissorhands. This latest version of Alice In Wonderland will be in 3D, using a mix of live action and performance capture CGI.

  • iv

  • Maria

    JOHNNY DEPP MARRY ME.

  • file under uninspired

    personally…… I am totally sick of Tim Burton’s shitty remakes. This will be crap and over acted as usual….using the same cast as with every other movie………this is sounding more like a repeat of the last movie, which was a repeat of the movie before, and which copied the movie before that…..etc…

    Some media reported he has an accou nt on a site to find love. It seems it’s called ‘Ri ch kis s Co m’ it is said it brings rich women and young men together. After checking it,I saw a lot of charming girls and rich men in the club.

  • Ralu

    well, go ahead !!!!! I love you :) Good luck :D
    Johnny Depp is made for Disney :P

    I saw parts of one Pirates of the caribbean movie and thought it was sooooo boring. I really don’t get how that franchise is so successful. I kinda figured he’d end up in the new Burton and hopefully it’s an interesting movie. I wonder if Burton’s wife will end up in this movie as well??

  • Ralu

    fourth Pirates of the Caribbean??? They must make it a serial … LOL

  • [☆I n F a m o u s☆]

    ;it’s nō different from all the other shīt he’s been doing.

    ..pirates needs to be 86′d ~ it’s kinda garbage.

  • Tami

    I never really liked the pirates of the caribbean,but im kinda excited about alice in wonderland!

  • manolita

    Great! He’s a fine actor and person and has a marvellous voice. Not to speak of his eyes…………..mmm

  • Maria (Shorty)

    Fourth Pirates? I hope they bring back the entire cast, ’cause I’ll miss Orlando. Love Tim Burton and Johnny movies. They are soooo strange, but fun. I JUST LOVE JOHNNY! He can do ANYTHING!!!

  • peacvh

    awesome!

  • andamentothat

    I think he is getting pigeon holed into too many Disney movies and characters.. The 4th pirates is a bit much but should still be fun. Depp as Mad hatter could be another endearing role.

  • nikomilinko
  • richard peterson

    my favourite actor

  • creativegirl

    Whooo Hooo! Pirates 4! I can’t wait. I love those movies and would love a 4th one.

    But everyone has to come back – Keira and Orlando – or it won’t be the same.

    I think that Tim Burton could do a good job at a retelling of Alice in Wonderland and that its the type of story that is just ripe to be made into a 3D version. Johnny kicks ass at whatever he does and he will make a splendid Mad Hatter. So I have high hopes for this movie.

    I love the new 3D format of movies, so I think it would be great to see it. And whatever it takes to keep these classic fairytale stories moving forward for new generations to enjoy, I’m all for it.

    GOD! please not another Pirates of the Caribbean!! whyy? when didn´t anything to deserve it!

    btw, this guy is awesome! :) love him in finding neverland

    Peace.

  • Bre

    There’s gonna be a fourth?! Man… they should’ve stopped at three… But either way it’s Johnny Depp so I’ll go see it :D

  • bella

    Johnny Depp is VERY HOT :D

  • Teresa

    I can’t stand overrated Depp!!! I’m sick to death of him, the man can only master one character and that’s creepy English guy.

  • Jessica

    I thought the 3rd Pirates was the last one?? Not sure how I feel about it. The first movie was awesome, but neither of the other two lived up to it.

    Anyway, I love him, and I’m so excited to see him as the Mad Hatter! He’ll be amazing!

  • girl5

    Can’t wait for the 4th Pirates of the Caribbean!!

  • kewone

    -@Teresa “the man can only master one character and that’s creepy English guy”

    Oh, really? Just a few masterful roles having nothing to do with ‘creepy English guy’.

    Edward Scissorhands
    Gilbert Grape
    Ed Wood
    William Blake
    Donnie Brasco
    Raoul Duke
    George Jung

    I love Johnny Depp he is so hot.

  • stefanie

    Love him, love him, LOVE HIM!!!!
    Oh, I will watch every movie he’s in. One of the very VERY few truly great American actors.

    I think it’s interesting he took the “Tonto” role in The Lone Ranger. I’m sure he will give a real respect and humanity to Native Americans.

    Another Jack Sparrow movie??? I’m SO there.

  • tassibelle

    wow!!! he’s going to be awesome in alice in wonderland!!!!
    tim burtons gonna make it well random!! wooooooowwww a forth movie of pirates i can only say one word! AWESOMEEEE!!!!

  • stefanie

    #24, thank you for setting some people straight. Don’t Forget:

    Gonzo journalist, Hunter S. Thompson
    New Englander Ichabod Crane
    Commander Spencer Armacost (the Astronaut’s Wife)

    To name a few more…

    Johnny is one of the great American actors today and Lord knows we have so few.

  • Helena

    Mad Hatter, yes. Jack Sparrow, no! Give up!

  • gina

    He is one busy man. No mention of him taking on the riddler, but I don’t think he will have the time. I think he is a perfect choice for the Mad Hatter in Alice.

  • Chloe

    God how I love to look at that man !!! :)

  • hank

    tanto is native american, johnny is native american, may be why he was interested…
    not so happy about pirates 4, but the others should be interesting…

  • depp lover *0*

    Luv him!
    he got sexy beeing edward
    there’s nothing he can’t perform!

  • [☆I n F a m o u s☆]

    depp as ‘tonto’ in the ‘the lone ranger’? busy guy..

  • Athena

    Can’t wait for the premiere!!! haha yay!

  • cathy x

    I think it will be lame his movies r getting lame aswell, and tim Burton needs to do a brand new film and stop with the musicals and NO MORE REMAKES. As for Johnny depp he should play an american guy for once and do a completely different role.

  • sharon

    i liked all the pirates of caribbean matter of fact he is a universal actor ,i think he will do good as the mad hatter.

  • suzette

    wow i didn’t know about the 4th pirates movie

    i was excited already because of alice in wonderland
    because i love this movie and if you add tim’s creativity is going to be bad ass, but now the movie will also have johnny?? damn i can’t imagine and can’t wait to see it

  • tha

    I died and went to Johnny Depp heaven

    -faints-

  • Stephanie

    FUN! I’m always up for some more amazing Burton-Depp magic :D

  • cari

    I think the Mad Hatter will be great, but I hope they change things up for a fourth ‘Pirates’. They need a really great script or it will suck. Maybe an ‘origins’ story :) JUST KIDDING.
    As far as Lone Ranger……I just read that George Clooney will be the Lone Ranger to Johnny’s Tonto. I thought it was a JOKE! it isn’t. This does not bode well for Depp. Clooney will just do another shiteous ‘Batman & Robin’ to this movie. He can’t act in a movie like that. He can ONLY DO tongue in cheek roles.
    Please don’t let the Clooney ‘rumor’ be true…

  • claire

    je trouve que johnny depp il est trop beau !! je l’aime trop !!

  • Sasha

    Johnny Depp… We (as in me and my friends) Love you so much that it’s scary. Please come to Long Island one day! Please???!!!!

  • seekara

    the mad hatter will be such a good role for johnny depp to play, itll be like willy wonka all over again!
    cpt jack sparo as well! just keeps getting better i thought they killed it with potc – at worlds end though. who knows? i hope its a better attemp if it does go in to production.

  • starshine

    I agree with #24 and #28,but as long as I am responding to the above statement that Johnny Depp is that “crazy english guy (I am assuming that you mean Sweeny Todd), for which he was nominated for best
    actor. This was a musical, and Johnny had never sang on screen before. I dare say that some of us would find it difficult to speak, much less sing. Continuing with the movies in which he has perfomed , other than those listed above, here are a few that you might want to check out: From Hell, Ninth Gate, Nick of Time, Libertine, Don Juan, Charlie & the Choclate Facory, Benny & Joon, (for this he was nominated for a Golden Globe) and Secret Window. I honestly believe that he is the most talented actor of our time, and it is regretable that the academy has not recognized his genius,.

  • Kimmii y Panxa

    WE LOVEEEEE JOHNNY DEPP (L) is the best!
    we love too johnny depp’s films is wonderfull :B
    amd the new roles of johnny depp is great! we gotta go to see the movie. Johnny never died! :D

  • jessica

    FUCK YES!
    Anyone see the new photo.
    We all know Pirates will be the most successful at the box office for weeks and more.
    And it will rock.

    Johnny Depp Kicks Major Ass.

  • Jessica

    The whole point is that Johnny is one of the only actors out there that can play a wide range of “looney” characters and make them all believable.
    I think he is a phenomenal actor.
