Deadline gives a little more detail saying that there is no deal in place with Johnny yet, and that Johnny is also looking at other projects (I don't know if they're referring to The Invisible Man, The Libertine, or other things). Also, Deadline says the project would start in November.
Kind of depressing to have a movie made about you AFTER you die. I mean, heck, that's not fair. It's not like they can excuse him from heaven or hell for the day to sit and see what the film business got out of his life.
It's sad that Russeell is dead. But this project is more interesting than this Strauss-Khan movie.
I think I agree with that. But then who thought Depp would be such an over-the-top hysterical Trump. So Depp and humor that crosses the line is good. I prefer him in roles that are not safe, not sure. If the role and the picture goes down in flames, so be it. He's got all the money he needs. And a bio pic about a investigator hews to the main path, expected of him, safer than. My biggest reservation with regard to the Strauss-Khan role isn't the role, it's the director. Cause going sideways on a tale that already pushes hard on the limits of respectability: that gonna take a director who is an artist.
