Johnny Depp and his 15-year-old daughter, Lily-Rose Depp, are set to begin filming for a new movie they will star in together. Called Yoga Hosers, this film is dubbed a ‘comic book movie,’ and it also stars writer Kevin Smith’s daughter, Hailey Quinn Smith.
“People always ask me ‘Are you ever going to make a comic book movie?’ This is it–but instead of yet another dude saving the day, our antiheroes are the most feared and formidable creatures man has ever encountered: two 15-year-old girls,” Smith explains.
This isn’t the first time Johnny Depp and Kevin Smith’s daughters have appeared on the big screen either. Both teens had cameos in Kevin Smith’s last film called Tusk. Tusk will premiere in September at the Toronto Film Festival.

In Yoga Hosers, Lily-Rose Depp and Hailey Quinn Smith will play the crime-fighting Colleens. They will join forces with Johnny Depp’s character to–according to the film’s producers–battle evil, “all seven Chakras, one Warrior Pose at a time.”
Johnny Depp has spent many years keeping his two children he shares with former partner Vanessa Paradis (both Lily-Rose Depp and Jack Depp) out of the limelight. It seems as Lily-Rose is trying to forge her own path into the acting world, he is becoming more in tune with her wishes by helping her learn her craft–but staying close by at the same time.
One place Lily-Rose Depp didn’t make herself obvious was on the set of Black Mass, in which Johnny Depp plays the role of mobster Whitey Bulger. That film is set to premiere in 2015–and Depp is hard to recognize. Many of that film’s scenes were shot in the Boston area where Whitey Bulger committed so many of his heinous crimes.
Do you foresee Johnny Depp and Lily-Rose Depp becoming the next father-daughter film sensation or do you think Depp is just affording Lily-Rose the opportunity to dip her toes in the water?
