Johnny Depp to star in more Disney projects.
Aside from being Captain Jack Sparrow, Depp will star as the Native American sidekick Tonto in a new version of the “Lone Ranger”, produced by Jerry Bruckheimer.
Depp will also play the Mad Hatter in director Tim Burton’s adaptation of the classic “Alice in Wonderland,” using a combination of 3D animation and performance capture technology similar to that used for 2007’s “Beowulf”.
The “Pirates 4” affirmation arrived early Thursday through the actor’s representatives in Variety. No premiere dates for any of the projects have been announced.
