Johnny Depp's Salary Demands Throw Him Off The Black Mass!

johnny depp backs out black mass

Johnny Depp is apparently TOO gangster for gangster thriller, Black Mass!!

The Lone Ranger has backed out of the dark Boston criminal biopic after soft sales at Cannes forced the studio to cut Johnny's usual $20 million salary to a measly $10 million.

That makes total sense!

How is he supposed to wine and dine new GF Amber Heard AND support his children on only $10 million??! LOLz!

Fortunately, Johnny has PLENTY of work coming up that meet his salary standards, but we just hope this doesn't mean hottie Joel Edgerton is going to exit the flick too!

    Those types of salaries for entertainment are disgusting. I don't give 2 shaits if the movie pulls in 10x's that amount. The point is ANY entertainment should not cost / pay what it does.

    Actually it was not over salary cut. It was because he had not yet committed to do the movie but the movie ppl were promoting it using Johnny's name, even though he had not yet committed to it. Basically Depp's people were upset because the producers were "selling" the movie in Berlin with Johnny's name when he wasn't confirmed, and actually had several problems to be in the movie.

    If hollywood was smart, rather than paying well known actor WAY too much money. They would use that money to get good writers and good unknown actors to make a really good film. Rather than remake after remake.

    Re: yousef – Yousef you are everywhere on the internet chasing him. You might as well know he could not care one rats Assp about what you are doing for him. He has a lovely woman by his side finally. And young and talented and he is on top of the world. He would not give any of you middle agers the time of day. All you can best hope for is a picture and a signature and a ticket to a movie or a glimpse of him online with pictures. Nothing more. Now take that and deposit it in your bank of get a life.

    Re: Jeff – Thanks I agree, and since I'm on a fixed income have to pick my movies very carefully when before I could go to 1-2 per weekend matinee.
    A good director does make a lot of difference though, have seen my fair share of indies ruined with a bad director. Unknown actors I can easily live with and have. Good comment.

    Re: Teenybits – You're kidding, right? Johnny Depp is 50 years old in 2013. He's almost past middle age(rs.) He's been in full middle aged crisis mode too, apparently, trading in the lovely mother of his beautiful kids for a younger model and throwback dressing like a sixties rock star. He wears so many layers of kitschy hippie bling and clothing now that it must take him an hour just to get dressed. That said, I don't care, judge what he does OR what he wears if it's fun for him. Just don't spin tall tales to Yousef or you might start to really believe them.

    Re: Teenybits – Welcome back, self declared, actually friend of the circle.
    I think you have already proven more than once that YOU know nothing!
    You defended Vanessa, now you defend Amber, you accused Johnny of being into really young girls and you are left with nothing but bashing JD's fans. SAD!

    Johnny never followed his career for the money, he always followed by his heart and for sure there is another real reason for him to leave this film and the reason is not because of the salary.
    I think the filmmakers were not correct with him and they also are not acting properly with the media and Johnny is very depressed, he is not happy with Amber.
    He doesn't want to have more problems

    Re: @v@ – are you kidding or you are just stupid? the middle age is from 45-65 and what does what he wears have to do with the mid life crisis? he always dressed like that since when he was born maybe! and he didn't trade the ugly vanessa they just broke up like any normal couples and she started to date a MUCH YOUNGER french guy just weeks after the broke is that mean she is on mid life crisis? believing everything you read about him that much?

    Re: yousef – Stop insulting people!!! You're dumber than all of us here! @V@ is absolutely right. I might add that Depp could sometimes take a bath. I'm sorry if I offended you, TBT

    Re: safon – you are the dumbest human being alive if you think depp is past the middle age because as i said the middle age from 45-65 and the guy still 49 and do you live with him to know if he take a path or not? or you are judging just because he dress like a 70's rockstar ? what does what he wears have to do with how he smells?

    Re: yousef – Yousef, get a life……this is for comments. Of ALL types. Not just the ones that please you! If you don't like what someone says then get off of here!

    Seems Amber, the low-life, nobody, bisexual GF, is already hurting Johnny's career. Maybe they wanted to dump him from the film because of all the bad press he's been getting with her and this is their sneaky way of doing it.
    Johnny is a very talented actor but the press lately on him has been bad….bad press on a celeb does not sell tickets.

    Re: yousef – Middle age rubric is debated; and it used to be 35 to 55. With increasing lifespans, it's considered to be 40 to 60, as senior pensions start at 60 and up.
    I don't want to split hairs with you, as some seem old at 40…and no, he didn't 'always' dress like that. Just since he hung with Richards. He used to clean up really well. That said, he's more than earned the stripes to dress in whatever way turns his fancy. He chose his roles from the heart and made them his own, plus he's finally pursuing his beloved music thing. Live performing takes a ton of courage.

    Re: sunshine63 – they dumped him? they wanted him so badly actually they were selling the movie with his name before when he commit to them and that made him and his ppl angry then when they cutted the budget they wanted him to take half of the salery they adverstie first! HE WAS RIGHT and HE DID THE RIGHT THING those hollywood producers are greedy as hell

    Re: @v@ – i don't care about your BS and your thoughts the because fact is the middle age is from 45 to 65 and johnny started to hang out with keith in the 90's not in 2012!



  24. 24

    Johnny wouldn't of fit this part. If you look at Whitey Bulger there is no way Johnny could look that ugly. Sounded like a half baked movie anyway. Johnny can do better. I wish he would clean up and do a movie where he isn't covered in some weird makeup. Just show that gorgeous face and talent!

    Re: Yousef – Lol. So why are you even on here if you're not into communicating? You just want us all to LISTEN to YOU?

    Re: yousef – So are the actors!

    Re: yousef – He WAS committed. When asked to take a salary cut (and one would only be asked to do that IF they were already signed) he decided to pull out! Not giving Johnny what he asked for in a contract is breech of contract allowing Depp to walk away if he so chose to. They weren't selling the movie with his name without signing him……

    Re: sunshine63 – you are in luck! johnny is playing normal non-makeup role in transcendence which he's filming these days!

    Why would ANYONE on earth take 1/2 a pay cut when they have many projects on the horizon that will pay the same, if not more, and with a net worth of at least $400 million?? Many of us don't have that luxury but Johnny does and it's his business whatever he chooses to do with his career. People can say whatever negative comments they want to but after TLR comes out they will all love him again. As far as Amber goes, if he is unhappy with her then the wouldn't be with her and she has NOTHING to with his career choices. People will always be lovers, haters and/or jealous of them. If it is not Amber it would be someone else and for a lot of Johnny lovers nobody will ever be good enough for him.

    Re: tega – For sure I'm not jealous of Johnny(ha ha ha) I also dislike Amber and I feel that this problem would not be the same with another woman, as Robin, Emma, Eva or anyone else, the matter is with Amber
