We’re exactly one month from the release of Kevin Smith’s latest feature, the man-into-walrus horror tale. Now, The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Smith already has a very different followup in the works. Smith is teaming with actor Johnny Depp for a film called Yoga Hosers that will star their respective daughters, Harley Quinn Smith and Lily-Rose Depp.
The second entry in Smith’s Canada-centric “True North Trilogy,” Yoga Hosers follows the adventures of two 15-year old girls, Colleen Collette (Depp) and Colleen McKenzie (Smith) who go into battle after an ancient evil returns, teaming with a Montreal legend, Guy Lapointe (the elder Depp) for a Yoga-infused offense. “People always ask me ‘Are you ever going to make a comic book movie?’” says Smith. “This is it – but instead of yet another dude saving the day, our antiheroes are the most feared and formidable creatures man has ever encountered: two fifteen year old girls.” Yoga Hosers will feature much of the cast of, including Ralph Garman, Justin Long, Harley Morenstein, Michael Parks, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez and Jennifer Schwalbach with new roles for Adam Brody, Austin Butler, Tony Hale, Natasha Lyonne, Jason Mewes and Tyler Posey. StarSTream Entertainment will finance and produce alongside Abolitta Productions, Invincible Pictures and SModcast Pictures.
Hello dear fellows. You can now find Johnny Depp Network under a new gallery. I went for the past months rebuilding the whole gallery because it needed a lot of fixes everywhere for renaming and resizing. For you won’t be much a difference but for me and the admins of our hosting it is. I’ve arranged the whole gallery better and moved something to make it look more organized. So visit from now on johnnydeppnetwork.com/gallery!
It’s very hilarious.
When a gig prevented Elvis Costello from making a recording session for Lost on the River: The New Basement Tapes– an album of “lost” Bob Dylan lyrics that Costello, Marcus Mumford and My Morning Jacket’s Jim James, among others, have set to music – producer T-Bone Burnett found a worthy fill-in: Johnny Depp. The actor sat in on guitar for Costello during the recording of “Kansas City,” according to NME, after stopping by the L.A. studio where the sessions are taking place to visit the producer.
Burnett and the musicians, which also include Dawes’ Taylor Goldsmith and Carolina Chocolate Drops’ Rhiannon Giddens, have been working on the record since this past spring. The lyrics date back to Dylan’s fabled 1967 stay at the West Saugerties house known as “Big Pink,” where he and the Band recorded 30 songs that were heavily bootlegged until their official release asThe Basement Tapes in 1975. During his time at Big Pink, Dylan wrote the lyrics to many songs that he did not record, so Burnett & Co. have taken it upon themselves to give the “new” songs music on Lost on the River and have set about recording an estimated 50 new songs (with overlap). Song titles include “Florida Key,” “Card Shark,” “Hi-De-Ho” and “Lost on the River.”
“These are not B-level Dylan lyrics,” Burnett told the Los Angeles Times this past March. “They’re lyrics he just never got around to finishing.”
In addition to making the album, the musicians are allowing Showtime filmmaker Sam Jones to document the sessions for a special titled Lost on the River: The Basement Tapes Continued, which is set to premiere in the fall.
Depp has been especially busy with music the last few years. Last month, he joined Aerosmith in Boston to play guitar on “Train Kept A-Rollin’,” following up his appearance doing backup vocals on their 2012 album Music From Another Dimension. He also joined Willie Nelson in Boston, at a June concert, for performances of “On the Road Again” and “Crazy.” Two years prior, he played with the Black Keys at the MTV Movie Awards, surprised an Alice Cooper audience at one of the shock rocker’s L.A. gigs and crashed Marilyn Manson’s headlining gig at the Revolver Golden Gods show. He also played guitar on a cover of Carly Simon’s “You’re So Vain” with Manson that year.
The fifth installment of the popular fantasy adventure film series “Pirates of the Caribbean” is already being produced with several location shots including Puerto Rico and New Orleans, which both have ideal settings that are essential for the movie’s scenes, according to Deadline. It was announced that Norwegian directors Espen Sandberg and Joachim Rønning would be directing the film.
The producer of the films, Jerry Bruckheimer, has given few clues as to which villains and major creatures would be shown in the upcoming film. But we do know the title of the latest installment: “Dead Men Tell No Tales.”
According to Hallels, Bruckheimer has suggested that the latest installment would be a straight-up pirate movie but without a kraken-like monster. This suggests that the following films will steer away from monsters chasing Jack Sparrow and his company.
Penelope Cruz, who portrayed the character of Angelica, will not be appearing in the fifth installment. There will also be fewer appearances by Elizabeth and Will whose stories seem to have been resolved previously. The plot could revolve around Jack following Captain Teague’s words about getting the Trident.
The most likely release date for “Dead Men Tell No Tales” is July 7, 2017, Indie Wire reported. “Dead Men Tell No Tales” will follow the trend that started when Captain Jack Sparrow charmed everyone’s hearts and attention after the first film, “Curse of the Black Pearl.” Bruckheimer also said that the film would still have its share of magic, wit, and craftiness, which is what “Pirates” is all about.
The next film will allegedly start with a pirate wedding. However, Bruckheimer has not given the names of the people who are getting married. With a scheduled premiere so far away, many plot details and other plans could still be in the works. It could take at least two more years for fans to get any specific details about the movie.
