Depp Gets Animated

by Laurance

I make no secrets about my unhealthy admiration for the man they call Depp. Arguably the greatest character actor of our time, the man who makes sh–t movies watchable (the secret window) will be teaming up with the director of Bridge to Terabithia, Gabor Csupo. What is even more interesting is that the duo will be bringing the short stories of Charles Bukowski to the silver-screen in an animated movie called How the Dead Love. TMZ has the scoop:

“Johnny Depp has just boarded a fascinating new film project called “How the Dead Love,” an animated film that mines four short stories from the hard-living poet and quintessentially L.A. novelist, Charles Bukowski.

What’s more, he’s doing it with Gabor Csupo, the Hungarian-born animator and producer behind the first three seasons of “The Simpsons,” as well as the subsequent Nickelodeon hit shows and movies “Rugrats” and “The Wild Thornberrys.”…

…Depp will voice the main character of the film, and will also produce it with Csupo via Depp’s own production company, Infinitum Nihil, which is part of the Warner Bros.-based film finance company, Initial Entertainment.”

Now if we can just get Mr. Depp into Sin City.
