It amazes me that Johnny Depp continues to have the career he has – even though SO MANY of his movies suck. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Johnny Depp, and I don’t even care when he has major flops like ‘The Lone Ranger.’ I guess it’s no surprise that fans forgive his many, many, bad movies and continue to flock to see his films!
Here are his last 5 movies: ‘The Lone Ranger,’ ‘Dark Shadows,’ ‘The Rum Diary,’ ‘POTC’, and ‘The Tourist.’ Of those five movies, only the Pirates of the Caribbean movie was half decent. Every other movie was awful. Shortly before these movies, he made another horrible movie, ‘Alice in Wonderland,’ and now we’re learning that a sequel is coming – and Johnny will star in it!
Maybe the old Johnny Depp is gone after all. According to Deadline.com, Depp is negotiating to return as The Mad Hatter in “Alice in Wonderland 2.” The 2010 film, directed by Tim Burton, made over $1 billion worldwide. “Muppets” director James Bobin will replace Burton on the sequel.
That Depp is playing The Mad Hatter again is actually far from a surprise. When Bobin was announced as the “Alice in Wonderland 2″ director by TheWrap back in May, Depp was said to be attached. In addition to “Alice in Wonderland 2,” Depp is set to star in “Pirates of the Caribbean 5,” “Into the Woods” and, possibly, “Mortdecai,” a quirky comedy thriller that was announced this week. The actor will next be seen in “Transcendence,” a new film from Christopher Nolan cinematographer Wally Pfister.
I’m surprised that ‘Alice in Wonderland’ made as much money as it did. It was SO BAD! At least Tim Burton isn’t doing the sequel. Maybe it won’t be AS bad.
