Well, the techno-thriller Transcendence may not have worked out all that well for Johnny Depp last month, but fans of the actor needn't worry, because 2015 will put Depp back on the weird side again. Mortdecai is an adaptation Kyril Bonfiglioli's The Great Mortdecai Moustache Mystery, the author's final novel which remained unfinished until satirist and parodist Craig Brown completed it. In the film, Depp plays the title character, an art dealer setting off from adventure to misadventure via Jersey and Moscow to a final showdown in a Buckinghamshire bungalow of unparalleled hideousness. Sounds pretty wild. And now we have a first look at a blonde, mustachioed Depp in the film, looking like a dashing hipster. Look!
Here's our first look at David Koepp's Mortdecai from Lionsgate (via The Playlist):
Mortdecai is directed by David Koepp (Premium Rush, The Secret Window) and written by Eric Aronson, based on the anthology by Kyril Bonfiglioli. Juggling angry Russians, the British Mi5, his impossibly leggy wife and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai (Johnny Depp) must traverse the globe armed only with good looks and special charm in a race to recover a stolen painting rumored to contain the code to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold. Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor, Paul Bettany & Olivia Munn also star in the film which Lionsgate releases February 6th, 2015.
