Johnny Depp Departs ‘Seven Friends of Pancho Villa’

Johnny Depp has dropped out of the upcoming Pancho Villa biopic Seven Friends of Pancho Villa and the Woman with Six Fingers due to scheduling conflicts. The role will now go to either Benicio Del Toro or Gael Garc&ia Bernal. Salma Hayek will also star in the biopic, although her role has not been disclosed.

We first reported on this project back in December 2009, when Johnny Depp first signed on. At the time, it was said that the movie wouldn't start production until 2011, due to Johnny Depp's numerous commitments to other projects. Now Johnny Depp has stepped away from Seven Friends of Pancho Villa and the Woman with Six Fingers all together, which will now be able to begin production in the near future. The project was also known as Wild Roses, Tender Roses, although the title will now be Seven Friends of Pancho Villa and the Woman with Six Fingers.

Emir Kusturica will direct Seven Friends of Pancho Villa and the Woman with Six Fingers, which is based on the book by James Carlos Blake. Emir Kusturica will meet with both Benicio Del Toro and Gael Garc&ia Bernal in Cuba to decide which actor will play Pancho Villa.

The story will center on the early 20th Century bandit Pancho Villa, who, along with his loyal group of followers, robbed from the rich and became a hero to impoverished Mexicans.

Johnny Depp sera Pancho Villa

Johnny Depp interpretara al lider revolucionario Pancho Villa. Al menos, esa es la intencion del director serbio Emir Kusturica, quien al parecer tiene ya casi convencido a Depp para que protagonice el biopic que esta preparando, una adaptacion de la novela de James Carlos Blake, 'Los amigos de Pancho Villa'. La pelicula, sin embargo, se titulara 'Seven Friends of Pancho Villa and the Woman with Six Fingers' ('Los siete amigos de Pancho Villa y la mujer con seis dedos').

Lo mas sorprendente es que el prestigioso realizador, que haga lo que haga es maravilloso para un determinado publico, quiere que la estrella actue en espanol, nada de ingles. He oido a Depp hablar espanol, con acento medio mexicano, y es... un tanto extrano, por decirlo de alguna forma. En cualquier caso, ya sabemos que este actor puede hacer cualquier cosa, y dentro de lo que cabe, aprender a pronunciar medianamente bien un idioma que ya chapurrea no debe ser el reto mas complicado que habra tenido que hacer en su carrera. Al final, como siempre, lo que verdaderamente importara sera que sus escenas esten bien interpretadas, el lenguaje sera lo de menos (eso espero).

Kusturica ha finalizado ya el guion de la pelicula, junto a su colaborador Gordan Mihic, pero si quieren a Depp el rodaje no podra comenzar hasta 2011, debido a compromisos previos del actor; el serbio no tiene prisa, y mientras le espera rodara una comedia titulada 'Cool Water'. Ademas de al protagonista de 'Piratas del Caribe' o 'Enemigos publicos', Kusturica tambien quiere a Salma Hayek para otro de los papeles principales, aunque no se ha especificado cual (la ultima esposa de Pancho quiza). Seguiremos atentos a este interesante proyecto.

PD: Depp ya trabajo a las ordenes de Kusturica en 'Arizona Dream' (1993).

Johnny Depp as Pancho Villa?

Johnny Depp is in advanced talks to star in a biopic focusing on Mexican bandit Pancho Villa.

The somewhat hilariously titled Seven Friends of Pancho Villa and the Woman With Six Fingers will lens in 2011, once Depp's other projects have cleared the way.

According to Variety , the film will be shot in Spanish. You can't say Depp isn't up for a challenge, but considering his shaky mastery of accents ( From Hell 's mockney horror, anyone?) we're actually a little worried about this, but clearly he's confident enough to give it a go.

The film is based on the novel The Friends of Pancho Villa by James Carlos Blake, which details how the early 20th century outlaw robbed from the rich, drank, danced and made merry while becoming a national hero. Sounds very Jack Sparrow to us; Depp should be a perfect fit.

Salma Hayek is also in talks to co-star and the script was written by Serbian filmmaker Emir Kusturica and screenwriter Gordan Mihic. The film will be shot in Mexico after Kusturica finishes work on his next movie, Cool Water , a black comedy about a Palestinian stripper.

Pancho Villa himself has already appeared in a movie: 1914's The Life of General Villa by DW Griffith. Unfortunately, Depp won't be able to go all Method and study him as he studied Keith Richards for Pirates of the Caribbean - the film's been lost in the mists of time.

Think Depp's a good choice to play the real-life Mexican naughty boy? Let us know below!
