There are rumours today that Johnny Depp may play The Doctor in a Russell T Davies penned Doctor Who movie for the American market.
It’s certainly due that both Russel T Davies and producer Julie Gardener left the the series to work on projects for BBC America. In fact; they’re both believed to be in LA.
At the time, he said;
“Bringing the Who franchise to the theatres is a regeneration for the character beyond the usual one,”
“A theatrical release has a greater range and can reach millions of more people than just the fans. There will be brand new concepts and the film will be just as adventurous, scary and humorous as the television programme.”
Not all the rumours stand up as strongly, though, as much of the chat talks about a 2012 release and that’ll be quite a challenge to Depp’s filing schedule as he’s supposed to be working on more Pirates of the Caribbean films.
What do you think? Do you believe the gossip? Would you want to see another Doctor Who film?
Would he be the twelve Doctor? What would happen to Matt Smith?
