Has Johnny Depp hit a creative block, jaded from floggings of ‘has been there, seen it all’ reiterating iterations and decided to pack his bags and leave?
Attention-spiked, pointed-eared, reading & hearing between his lines through a smokescreen in some of his media chats: a salsa of creative fatigue has thrown the ball in his court, and his final decision, whether to stay or leave hangs in a ‘who knows’ balance. According to him, constant labor has taken a toll on him; it’s been a lopsided life of a plethora of dialogues over a long-spanning career. In the light of it, he is itching to drop the purist image and impose himself as a commonplace, everyday guy, enjoying small things of life.
He is desperate to unroll his sleeves, tap his latent, untapped self, with freedom at disposal to indulge in normal, unrehearsed conversations, unburdening himself from that baggage of rehearsed dialogues, that sophisticated star bearing, which he deems is becoming insane A duty above everything else attitude has embroiled him in a corrosive tussle of doppelgangers, but despite his on and off give-offs of threats on hanging up his boots, he is there and thereabouts.
This year, he cast a spell of attraction in Alice Through The Looking Glass, followed by a peek-a-boo appearance in Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, and J.K. Rowling’s pen-drive into a new chapter around the potter-like but more docile wizard will include the actor in a telling role.
Despite his conjectures to go missing without a trace, he is in the game and spreading out his cards like a veteran, and circumstantial evidence indicates that his give-offs at retirement is a handy maneuver to sustain vigil against any shortage of media focus on his whereabouts.
Turning deaf ears to the demands of a human-behavior driven script, a sharp departure from willingness to portray scenes of steamy passion- the cardinal sin & the basic human instinct- has opened a Pandora box of troubles for Amber Heard. She’s at loggerheads with a financial tribulation; a courtroom will pay heed to her pleas, allegations and counter allegations, as she has been sued a gargantuan amount of eight million pounds, by the financers of modern-day rendition of Martin Ami’s 1989 literary masterpiece, “London Fields.”
The producers of aforesaid movie are fuming over her backtracking from her previous stance that she will plunge headlong into the steamy sequences to meet the demands of plot progression. There’s more to the scrumptious soup of entertainment having turned bitter and sour; producers are alleging that Heard, who walked down the aisle with Johnny Depp and then left him alone at the altar, tended to chop and change the original script maneuvering her scissors around the steamy sequences that demanded her to flaunt her hyena like gait and curvaceous physical form.
Heard dons a curiosity-provoking, questions-popping role in the movie, where her characters fools around with the emotions and thoughts of others, having seen the mundane side of life, over-lived the notion that sex brings completeness and having visions that someone was out there to pounce on her at any moment to bring her heartbeats to a dreadful conclusion.
Promises like debt must be harbored till they ripen into fulfillment! If Amber has broken a vow of on-screen intimacy to honor the plot progression, or if there is something more fishy to her decision reversal, everything is shrouded in a cloud of mystery, and as we know denizens of Hollywood have honed the art of keeping anticipations high and astonishment in the volatile playground.
