Johnny Depp Will Be Your Action-Adventure Houdini

May 27, 2014


One of the various Houdini projects currently in development will now be known as the one where Houdini is Johnny Depp. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Depp is talks to star in Lionsgate's The Secret Life of Houdini--a film that, like ABC's Houdini crime procedural series, for some reason does not have Houdini doing magic. Like Confessions of a Dangerous Mind, this postulates that the magician was a British spy who quietly worked for the Secret Service in between getting chained up in his underwear. Red 2's Dean Parisot is attached to direct, and the studio is looking to start production in the fall before Depp has to shoot Pirates of the Caribbean--the inescapable franchise box that even our new Houdini remains hopelessly drowning in.
