Johnny Depp Touches Down in Tokyo
Making his arrival in the Land of the Rising Sun, Johnny Depp was spotted at Narita International Airport in Tokyo, Japan today (March 2).
The “21 Jump Street” actor sported a coy smile as he posed for photographers in a grey fedora, striped scarf and grey blazer.
Johnny Depp is teaming up with his frequent collaborator Tim Burton for a big-screen adaptation of the gothic show about vampires, werewolves, and zombies.
Depp explained, "I'm very excited to film it. You know, it's something that Tim and I have talked about for a number of years because we were both fans. As kids, you know, you run home at 3 o'clock in the afternoon to go watch this gothic soap opera on television with vampires and everything.”
"So our version, I guess, there's something that's very interesting coming from the screenplay and from the talks that Tim and I have had which is it retains that sort of bizarre distance that everyone has with one another in terms of the characters.”
"Maybe Barnabus, in this version, is maybe a little bit more, maybe waxes a little more poetic now and again, you know? But it's definitely in keeping with the original series."
