Must Watch: Fantastic New 'Rango' Featurette with Johnny Depp
If anyone was on the edge with Rango, this will definitely push you all the way over. Paramount debuted a new behind-the-scenes featurette on Yahoo for Gore Verbinski's upcoming animated movie Rango, which we just featured a theatrical trailer for last week. The video shows how actors Johnny Depp, Isla Fisher, Abigail Breslin, Ned Beatty, Ray Winstone and Harry Dean Stanton recorded voices. This is such a fun and unique way to make an animated flick, using a small soundstage and actual interaction (Fantastic Mr. Fox did something similar), which is one of the many reasons why I think Rango looks so damn good. Enjoy!

Rango is being directed by filmmaker Gore Verbinski, of The Mexican, The Ring, The Weather Man, and all three Pirates of the Caribbean movies. The script was written by John Logan (Gladiator, The Last Samurai, The Aviator, Sweeney Todd) based on a story by Verbinski and James Ward Byrkit. ILM is animating using "cutting edge techniques" that "allow [them] to capture and translate every aspect of Johnny's performance, using it to drive the computer-generated character in a way that has yet to be seen." Paramount is bringing Rango to theaters on March 4th, 2011 next spring. Visit the official website as well: RangoMovie.com.
