Johnny Depp to Star in Pancho Villa Biopic

Johnny Depp to Star in Pancho Villa BiopicSubmit Comment
Serbian helmer Emir Kusturica is in advanced negotiations with Johnny Depp to star as Mexican revolutionary hero Pancho Villa in his upcoming biopic titled "Seven Friends of Pancho Villa and the Woman With Six Fingers." The two men previously collaborated on "Arizona Dream" in 1993.

Kusturica said the script, written with regular collaborator Gordan Mihic is completed, although filming is not set to start until 2011, due to Depp's prior commitments. Salma Hayek is also in advanced talks to co-star in the pic.

The Spanish-language biopic is to be shot partly in Mexico, where Villa -- an early 20th-century bandit who became a guerilla fighter and a hero to the poor -- is an iconic historical figure. Depp will act in Spanish, Kusturica said.

The script is based on the biographical novel "The Friends of Pancho Villa," in which author James Carlos Blake recounts how Villa and his compadres had a great time fighting and robbing the rich, but also dancing, partying and making love.

Villa has previously been portrayed many times on screen by thesps such as Antonio Banderas, Telly Savalas and even Villa himself in the 1914 pic "The Life of General Villa."

This could be really good. Pancho Villa has an awesome story to tell... They should solve the mystery of Ambrose Bierce's disappearance while they're at it.

Johnny Depp will probably do fine but I feel like Javier Bardem would be a better choice. He already beat out Depp once for the role of Florentino in Love in the Time of Cholera.

probably because it will be in English. There are tons of mexican films about Pancho Villa.
