Johnny Depp, Futuristic Vampire??Johnny Depp as a (semi-)vampire, playing opposite Will Smith, in Francis Lawrence's "I Am Legend." This, of course, is the long-awaited adaptation of Richard Matheson's frankly awesome story.
According to Blackfilm.com, "along with Smith, JOHNNY DEPP has been added to the cast. No telling which role Depp will play, but given his penchant for playing extraordinary weird-like characters, expect a juicy plum part, like the neighbor, now one of the living dead."
Depp adds color to any flick, so the idea of him going all undead-like, well, that sounds cool.
Matheson's tale has been brought to the screen twice before: 1964's "The Last Man on Earth" and 1971's "The Omega Man."
