The Universal Shared Monster Universe is coming together quite nicely, with Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella set to star in their Untitled Mummy Reboot, which is set for release in the summer of 2017. Many have wondered what project will be next for this shared universe, and it seems we may now have our answer. Deadline is reporting that the studio has signed on Johnny Depp to star in their remake of The Invisible Man.
Back in November, we reported that Universal plans to release a new horror movie every year, starting with the Mummy Reboot, which Alex Kurtzman is directing. Production is scheduled to begin in early 2016, with the studio already setting a June 9, 2017 release date. The report also revealed that other movies centering on Dracula, Van Helsing, The Bride of Frankenstein and The Wolf Man are set to follow. There was a rumor last year that The Wolf Man would be the next project to follow the Mummy Reboot, but that was never confirmed.Read More
At the end of every year, The Harris Poll conducts a nationwide survey of American moviegoers to find out which movie stars are the most beloved. This year, they polled 2,252 U.S. adults between December 9 and December 14 to determine America's Favorite Movie Star, which was won by Bridge of Spies star Tom Hanks. This is the fifth time he has taken the top spot, following wins in 2002, 2004, 2005 and 2013. He also jumped up four spots from last year, when he took the #5 spot.
This year's runner-up was Black Mass star Johnny Depp, who rose from the fourth spot last year. Despite winning critical acclaim for both of their movies this year, neither Tom Hanks nor Johnny Depp scored Oscar nominations for their performances. Rounding out the top 5 this year are Denzel Washington who topped the list last year but didn't have a movie released in 2015, the late great John Wayne and Han Solo himself, Harrison Ford. John Wayne, who was in the second spot last year, is the only actor who hasn't dropped out of the top 10 in the past 20 years.Read More

Earlier this year, Johnny Depp got married to actress Amber Heard, and while some couples may still be in their "honeymoon" phase after a few months, Johnny Depp has skipped right ahead to the "pranking your wife" stage of their relationship. Entertainment Tonight has debuted a new video from the Velocity TV series Overhaulin, which teamed up with Johnny Depp for an epic prank, where they convinced his wife that her beloved 1968 Mustang was stolen. As it turns out, the car wasn't stolen at all, but was fully restored by the Overhaulin team.
The actress has had the car for eight years, which she described as a "beautiful piece of junk," and she also revealed that the car actually caused quite a bit of financial problems for her when she was just starting out in Hollywood. Despite being stolen twice, she still hung on to it for all of these years, and as a part of Overhaulin's final episodes, ending a nine-season run, they helped Johnny Depp pull off this prank, along with Amber Heard's father. To get fans ready for the episode, Entertainment Tonight debuted a video where host Chris Jacobs describes working with Johnny Depp on the prank, and we also have two clips from Velocity, where we see how the actress found out she was being pranked, and where she gets to see her fully-restored car for the first time.Read More
