Another Pirates movie? God help us! The last one stunk so bad that even 'The Simpsons' took there turn at letting us not forget it.

Lone Ranger - I might go for Johnny Depp as Tonto but it really will depend on who they get for Lone Ranger. Put the wrong person in the role and this could come off looking like the CSI:Miami season premiere.

Alice in Wonderland - Johnny Depp as Mad Hatter, I can not accept that one. This is a role which needs to go to someone a little older and more sophisticated. I just don't think he will be a good fit.

Can people not come up with any more ideas on movies anymore?
It is not just the movie industry! Vocal projectionists (I refuse to call them Music Artists and/or singers) have done a good job of butchering classics from the 60 - 80's.
I'm about ready to lose my free samples when I walk through the grocery store and hear some butchered remix of something like 'Come on Eileen' or 'Band of Gold' (just to name two I heard earlier this week.
BTW, there is no reason I can think of for a song like 'Come on Eileen' to altered to contain explicit lyrics.
