Rumors are rampant around the “internets” about a potential new Doctor Who movie being planned with Johnny Depp as the Traveling Time Lord. According to the rumor mill, Russell T. Davies will be putting pen to paper for the big screen adaptation.
As Logan Westbrook writes in The Escapist, “So, how likely is all this? Well, on the one hand, the rumor seems to have started on a site called PubArticles, which is a kind of YouTube for articles, and the quote from Davies and plot details are taken from the piece that appeared on the site. Given the complete lack of any oversight, it’s entirely possible – and probably very likely – that this is a complete fabrication. On the other hand, according to sci-fi site TOR, “movie studio sources” confirmed both the existence of the movie, and Depp’s involvement.
From this end, I can’t think of anyone any better to step outside the TARDIS than Johnny Depp. Let’s hope there’s some truth to the rumors at least for a bit, anyway. One thing for sure, this will occupy more conversations and spawn more internet rumors than the day it was rumored that Catherine Tate was to take over for David Tennant.
True or False…you decide.
