Actor Johnny Depp will be flexing his comedic-muscle alongside Olivia Munn, Ewan McGregor, Gwyneth Paltrow and Aubrey Plaza in a new film called ‘Mortdecai.’ The film has been teased for the last few weeks, but a new trailer shows more of the film than ever.
The comedy is expected to release on January 23, 2015 and Depp will play Art dealer Charles Mortdecai, as he searches for a stolen painting that’s reportedly linked to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold. Comedy is nothing new to Depp, who has humored audiences with his eclectic characters in the past, and his new take on the strange Art Dealer seems like a perfect fit once again.
Directing the film was David Koepp based on a screenplay written by Eric Aronson. The film itself is based on the popular novel written by Kyril Bonfiglioli.
