    Default Johnny Depp cast in Tim Burton's Alice, Lone Ranger and Pirates of the Caribbean 4



    Johnny Depp has been cast as The Lone Ranger in the upcoming Jerry Bruckheimer produced adaptation of the classic old-time radio and early television show created by George W. Trendle. Depp will play a masked Texas Ranger in the Old West who rights injustices with the aid of his native American assistant, Tonto. He gallops along on his white horse Silver. The character’s signature quote is “Hi-yo, Silver, away!” Pirates of the Caribbean writers Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio have been writing the script. No start or release dates have been announced.

    Depp must have signed a multi-picture deal with the studio, because it was also announced that the actor would play The Madd Hatter in Tim Burton’s 3D part live-action, part computer animated adaptation of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Principal photography is set to begin in November, with a March 5th 2010 release date previously announced. Concept art from the film was shown, showing the classic Alice in Wonderland scenes done in Tim Burton style, complete with curved and slanted corners. Everything is really stylized. Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dumb have huge heads, and are shaped like upward missiles. None of the characters look like a dramatic departure from the traditional designs.

    At the conclusion of the presentation, Walt Disney Studios Chairman Richard W. “Dick” Cook announced “How about another pirates movie!?” signaling that Depp was now signed for Pirates of the Caribbean 4.

    Default Johnny Depp takes on 3 new roles.....

    Mark Pasetsky’s Cover Awards » Johnny Depp Announces Three New Movie Roles


    Get excited! Johnny has agreed to reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in a fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie!

    But that isn’t the only project he has slated. Johnny will also play Tonto in a bigscreen adaptation of The Lone Ranger, and play the Mad Hatter in Tim Burton’s version of “Alice in Wonderland.”

    The deals closed yesterday with Disney, who is producing all three films.

    The Alice in Wonderland sounds great!
    Not too sure about Tonto but yay for Captain Jack although I do hope the movie will focus more on him- keira Knightly and orlando Bloom were dead weights in the previous movie.

    Looks like Johnny's taking EZ roles for the $$. I suspect his Mad Hatter will be a lot like his Willy Wonka.

    I'd like to see him in meatier roles like Donny Brisco and Blow instead of these cartoon characters.

    They are Disney movies so I dont expect much of the grittier movies coming from them - but I agree!
    Its been ages since he starred in a role like that.

    I have a feeling Burtons Alice in Wonderland will be anything but for kids. Even Charlie and the Chocolate Factory scared the kids! (and me!) haha.

    Hopefully they can learn from their mistakes. I don't think he's selling out since he said that he wanted to play Jack again. I would too!

    If the Alice in wonderland is as dark as the videogame Alice, then I'll watch that too.
    I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and sky...

    Doing another POTC movie is clearly about getting a big paycheck, but the Alice in Wonderland film has the potential of being very dark and very scary. Johnny still has a taste for the macabre!
