Johnny Depp : Two Remakes Coming & Captin Jack

Disney delivered a PR avalanche today, with so much news that we’re going to split the new information into two stories. First up, Johnny Depp, who has signed not only to reprise his role as Captain Jack Sparrow in a fourth, untitled Pirates Of The Caribbean film, but will also play The Lone Ranger and star as The Mad Hatter in Bessie mate Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland.

The announcement was made yesterday, reports Variety, with Depp taking the stage dressed as Jack but wearing the Lone Ranger’s mask.

He’ll return as Captain Sparrow for a fourth Pirates adventure, which as yet doesn’t have a title, but will likely see him venturing in search of the Fountain Of Youth, as hinted at by the finale of At World’s End. There’s also no word yet on whether Gore Verbinski will come back to direct or if any of Depp’s co-stars, including Keira Knightley and Orlando Bloom will return.

Lone Rangers, Mad Hatters

And that was just the start of the news. He’s officially signed on to play The Lone Ranger, which doesn’t yet have a director, but Jerry Bruckheimer (who also announced a third National Treasure with Nicolas Cage) is producing the film. And Pirates scribes Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio have written at least one draft of the script.

Finally, there’s Tim Burton’s version of Alice In Wonderland. Aiming to open in 2010, Burton has added Depp as the Mad Hatter (confirming rumours that the friends would work together yet again) to a cast that already includes Rogue co-star Mia Wasikowska as Alice.

And in an unusual move for Burton, he’ll be using 3D and Beowulf-style performance-capture to make the film.

Wow. thats really surprising. I'm kind of nervous about the new Pirates movie. I really don't want them to ruin the series, but Johnny Depp will probably save it. I didn't know they were making an Alice in Wonderland movie. That sounds......interesting. I'd love to see JD as the mad hatter. There's also been rumors goin around about him playing The Riddler in the new Batman.

I've always liked the Pirates of the Carribean films so the fourth installment is a good news for me; I'll definitely watch it when it comes out.

Alice in Wonderland is a great story as well, Lewis Carroll is a genius - I've always loved his work of literary nonsense so I'll probably give this movie a go.

As for The Lone Ranger, I'm not really interested.
