Johnny Depp has shown us over the years that he has a dark side; he has chosen roles that veer towards the gothic, the creepy, the downright weird. And while he clearly has a gift for comedy, he certainly knows how to pull at our heartstrings with his big dark eyes and the inherent ability to make us sympathize with him.
That ability may come in handy in the upcoming "Transcendence", a technology-based thriller that sees Depp as a terminally ill scientist who figures out how to download his mind into a computer system, which, as you may imagine, comes with a few problems. The film, also starring "House Of Cards" actress Kate Mara and Morgan Freeman, isn't due out until April, but you can check out the trailer below.
Depp, who recently went through a difficult split from longtime partner Vanessa Paradis, recently proposed to his "Rum Diary co-star Amber Heard. The couple went to great lengths to hide the engagement for a while, but after they were seen out on the town with a giant ring on Heard's finger, the cat was out of the bag. Depp reportedly became smitten with the blonde beauty during filming and is rumored to have bought her a horse not long into their relationship. The couple most recently worked on the film "London Fields" together; the movie doesn't have a release date yet.
