Johnny Depp ‘recording new music with Jeff Beck as a comeback’ – ‘Hopes for movies return’ | Films | Entertainment

After having lost his libel case in the UK courts, Johnny Depp was asked to resign from the Fantastic Beasts film franchise. While the idea of the star making a cameo in Pirates of the Caribbean 6 was reportedly “balked” at when suggested to Disney. Nevertheless, the 58-year-old is now allegedly looking to make a comeback via new music.

Johnny Depp is no stranger to rock music, having been a guitarist since 2015 in his band Hollywood Vampires – alongside Alice Cooper and Joe Perry.

Now the Daily Mail reports that the star has been staying with Jeff Beck at the latter’s Sussex country estate.

The outlet alleges that Depp and the 77-year-old musician have been writing and recording music in Beck’s studio.

A source close to the Pirates star said: “They’ve been collaborating on material for Jeff’s next album.”

Ellis continued: “I’m mindful he’s still navigating his way through the legal system on many fronts, so the details of that I don’t talk about much.”

As for a Hollywood return, the 53-year-old reckons that Depp will be back in some form before too long.

He added: “Do I think he’s going to come back? Yes. To what degree, I’m not sure.

“[There’s] this reputation savaging that’s going on, this victimhood culture where victimhood is the new social currency and its economy is booming, and it’s been inflated.”
