A lot has been going on in Depp’s life recently. Luckily, not all of it bad. Long time friend and colleague, Tim Burton, is once again wanting to star Johnny in one of his creations. This time, for the small screen. Enter Gomez Addams.
Burton is very keen on the idea of having Depp play the role of Gomez. He feels that he could do the role justice. Small Screen’s source adds- “Depp is in talks to star as Gomez Addams in the Addams Family. It was Tim Burton’s idea. It seems as though Netflix are the ones that have to be convinced.”
From Edward Scissorhands (1990), to Alice in Wonderland (2010). From Sweeney Todd (2007), to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005), Tim Burton and Johnny Depp have made some amazing movies together. The new Addams Family show will reportedly be set in modern times. It will focus on Wednesday Addams and her point of view as her family navigates the 21st century.
Depp has been dropped from a couple of major franchises recently. Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean 6- in which he has played Captain Jack Sparrow for the previous five films. Also Warner Brothers Fantastic Beasts 3- where he would’ve reprised his role as Grindelwald.
If anyone can help Depp get out of his slump right now, it’s definitely Burton.
