Johnny Depp’s crime comedy “Mortdecai” will steal into theaters two weeks early, Lionsgate said Wednesday.
The story of a hapless art dealer entangled in larceny on a globe-trotting scale will debut on January 23 as opposed to its original release date of February 6. That sets it up against the Jennifer Lopez thriller “The Boy Next Door.” In its previous perch, “Mortdecai” would have gone toe to toe with the Wachowskis “Jupiter Ascending,” the fantasy adventure, “Seventh Son” and “The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water.” The film co-stars Gwyneth Paltrow and Ewan McGregor.
The studio seems high on the film and even hinted at the possibility for sequels on a February 2014 call with investors and analysts.
To make room for “Mortdecai,” Lionsgate will shift romantic drama “The Age of Adaline” from that January release date to April 24. The film stars Harrison Ford and Blake Lively and centers on a woman who has an accident that prevents her from aging. In its new slot, the film will face competition from Bill Murray’s “Rock the Kasbah” and will get a weekend before “The Avengers 2″ debuts and rules the box office.
Johnny Depp joined good friend Ryan Adams onstage Thursday night during a show at Shepherd’s Bush Empire in London. Depp played guitar on two songs, “Kim” from Adams’ eponymous album released Sept. 9, and a blues-tinged cover of “Mother,” the Danzig metal classic.
Depp looked pretty comfortable with the band and the audience was, naturally, thrilled—especially when he took on the epic guitar solo originally played by John Christ. It’s not the first time Depp has dueted with alt-rock/country musician Adams— he played guitar on the B-side track of Adams’ “Aching For More,” released earlier this summer.

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.
