--To be released worldwide including india on --
Mumbai: December, 2014: The eccentric Johnny Depp will be seen in the title role of Charles Mortdecai in his next outing, the highly anticipated action-comedy, MORTDECAI, releasing worldwide including India on January 23, 2015.
A part time rogue, Charles Mortdecai’s luscious blonde wife Johanna is played by Academy Award-winner Gwyneth Paltrow. The film has an enviable supporting cast including Ewan McGregor, Olivia Munn, Jeff Goldblum and Paul Bettany.
Lionsgate and Oddlot entertainment presentation an Infinitum Nihil/ Mad Chance/ Lionsgate Production will be released in 100 screens across the major cities of India - Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Pune, Kolkata, Hyderabad, and Chennai.
Mortdecai is adapted from the book anthology The Mortdecai Trilogy written by Kyril Bonfiglioli, which are described as a cross between PG Wodehouse and Raymond Chandler.
Directed by David Koepp, a prolific Hollywood screenwriter (Mission Impossible, Jurassic Park, Spiderman) as well as director (Ghost Town, Premium Rush), Mortdecai is an action comedy that revolves around the adventures of a dissolute aristocratic art dealer.
Koepp previously collaborated with Depp on the screen adaptation of Stephen King’s novel, Secret Window. “I read the books and the character made an indelible impression,” says Koepp. “He just leapt off the page. I couldn’t imagine anyone apart from Johnny playing Charlie from the moment I read it. Johnny is so gifted at playing that kind of louse, the cowardly but loveable sort of character. He seems to have patented it over the last 15 or 20 years.”
Juggling some angry Russians, the British MI5, his impossibly leggy wife and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part time rogue Charlie Mortdecai must traverse the globe armed only with his good looks and special charm in a race to recover a stolen painting rumored to contain the code to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold.
