Actor Johnny Depp may star in Disney’s film adaptation of Broadway musical “Into the Woods“. Depp’s role in this film would be his first singing role since he starred in Tim Burton’s Sweeney Todd: The Demon of Fleet Street. This project would also reunite Depp with Rob Marshall, who was the director of Disney’s fourth Pirates of the Caribbean film.
Into the Woods is a “darkly comic mash-up” of classic fairy tales that revolves around a childless baker along with his wife, who try to lift a family curse by traveling into the woods to confront a witch that put a spell on them. During they journey, they encounter a group of characters including Rapunzel, Cinderella, and Little Red Riding Hood.
We’re just a few months away now from the new release of Disney’s newest film, ‘The Lone Ranger’, starring Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp. The film will be a new take on the story of John Reid, a man who is ambushed and left for dead, only to come back from the brink and become The Lone Ranger. With the help of his sidekick, Tonto, they two dispatch justice on those who deserve it in the old west. This is probably going to be one of the biggest films of the summer, with Depp, and ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ director Gore Verbinski, being a huge draw. So with just a few months to make sure that moviegoers know the movie is coming, Disney is beginning to ramp up the promotional campaign for the film. Yesterday we brought you a new set of character posters for the film, and today we have a new trailer for your viewing pleasure. So hit the jump for the third, and presumably final, trailer for Disney’s new film, and leave your thoughts below, only here at Chip and Company!

Actor Johnny Depp will be starring in Disney’s upcoming film, The Lone Ranger. Johnny Depp will be playing the Native American hero Tonto. Comanche Nation leaders invited him to become an honorary member of their tribe while he was filming The Lone Ranger in New Mexico last May.
Depp said that being adopted into the tribe was “possibly the greatest memento” he could have received. Comanche Nation held a sacred ceremony at the home of LaDonna Harris, a prominent Native Amercian activist, in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
“When the request came in, I couldn’t believe it. It was an honor beyond all honors…” Depp says. “The name they chose for me, Mah-Woo-Meh, means shapeshifter, which I suppose is quite apt, and I take great pride in that choice.”
There was some initial controversy when Depp was originally cast for the role of Tonto as some believed a true Native American would have been given the part. Depp commented that the honor of becoming part of the tribe drove him to give a respectable performance.
Johnny Depp has confirmed his role in the fifth Pirates of the Caribbean movie. The actor is expected to play his infamous role as Captain Jack Sparrow in the franchise that is still showing no signs of retiring. The fifth film in this series is scheduled to be released to theaters in July 2015.
Johnny Depp also revealed that Disney initially wanted to remove him from the project during the filming of the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie. He reported that were unable to understand his notorious ‘Sparrow’ mumbling.
“They didn’t understand the character. They were actually contemplating subtitling the film,” he said.
