Kosove and Johnson said in a statement, “Johnny Depp is one of the most charismatic, talented actors imaginable and we are delighted he is with us on this project.”
Pfister worked a cinematographer on the majority of Nolan's films, including the recent "The Dark Knight Rises." He picked up an Oscar for his work on "Inception." He recent;y shot "Moneyball" with Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill.
Depp will next be seen in "The Lone Ranger," and recently announced that he's launching a TV series that will modernize the work of Shakespeare.
