Johnny Depp rumored to star in Doctor Who big-budget film

…Johnny Depp as a Time Lord … that we’re not so sure of….And yet that’s what we might be seeing on the big screen a few years from now if the info uncovered by tor.com is correct….But the trustworthy tor.com did some digging on its own, reaching out to studio sources who said that “the casting of Johnny Depp as the Doctor for a 2012 film is confirmed.”


No. No. Next they’ll be casting Paris Hilton (once she gets out of jail in South Africa for having Marijuana) as Rose! COME ON!

This BETTER not be true. Our good chaps in England are very peeved at the fact that Depp isn’t a Brit; I mean, sure, I can see that. If they’re making an American version and recasting it (Which I don’t think is a good idea.), okay, cast an American, but it’s a BRITISH THING. It would be like having Brad Pitt be James Bond. Ew.

Okay, when I look at bow ties and colored scarves and the like, I think whimsical spacey-timey-wimey-fun. When I look at Johnny Depp, I think Pirate of the Caribbean, which was a good movie, but I also think weirdo. And because Depp and Tim Burton, a freaky person who writes freaky movies, are such Buddies, are we going to have him working on it!? So now Doctor Who will be marketed to the general public as a creepy morbid film. Whoop-dee-do.

There isn’t as much of a Doctor Who craze out here as there is in England. A lot of people watch it, but you couldn’t go running down the streets screaming, “I’M WEARING A VEGETABLE!!” and people actually getting what your saying. So, if they try to market Doctor Who out here by making a movie in 2012, and it turns out awful and weird, what are the people here going to do? Watch it? No. Or, maybe they will. Maybe the people of the U.S. like dark, morbid, weird Sci-Fi, like Battlestar: Galactica, or Stargate: Universe. Have they outgrown the happy-go-lucky Science Fiction we know in the forms of Star Trek and Doctor Who? The 1960s Sci-Fi ideas were some of the better, in my opinion. Not like a running gag, but there is humor in it to lighten it up, and nothing is always so dark and unhumorous.

Don’t do it Russel T. Davies, DON’T DO IT!!

    Johnny Depp has only been in three not creepy movies.

      At firs I thought you were saying only been in three creepy movies. He’s done a lot, and I’m guessing you’re referring to the Pirates of the Caribbean, which they are making a fourth, bye the way.

      Johnny Depp doesn’t inspire thoughts of happiness and whimsical fun to me. He did well as Jack Sparrow, and Edward Scissorhands, but that’s it. The character does NOT fit his odd personality. I can’t even think up of a good simile to describe how non-Doctor-Who-ish he is. And the Brits are ticked because he isn’t a Brit, which makes sense, because it sounds like one of the past writers wants to make a movie, not just a movie targeted to Americans, but a BBC Movie, so I think they’re rightly angry. It would be like if somebody cast Tom Cruise as James Bond. He’s weird (And has more of an ick factor than Depp) and is an American playing a definite British character.

    Don’t say Tom Cruise is a weirdo! He looks like my dad!

    Okay enough goofy stuff.

    I think that sounds really dumb… whooooww…NO WAYZ. You must have brits in a british thingy. Americans don’t talk as cool as britains do. :3

      Yes, but your dad doesn’t scare people. Tom Cruise is creepy…I’m betting your dad is normal.
