“Automatic weapons and intrigue”–Johnny Depp talks about THE TOURIST

Celebrity Wire conducted a brief, charming video interview with Johnny Depp during the Paris press junket for The Tourist; here’s what Johnny had to say about the romantic thriller and his newest character, Frank Tupelo.

Q: What are the elements of the film?

JOHNNY DEPP: [chuckling] Well, automatic weapons, first and foremost. Fear . . . panic . . . yeah, a stranger on a train . . . and intrigue. Danger. Fear.

Q: About [your] movie character, Frank Tupelo —

JOHNNY DEPP: Frank, for me, sort of represented the Everyman — what is considered by society , is accepted by society as “the normal man.” Everyday guy. Math teacher from Wisconsin. [He] ends up taking that one trip of his lifetime to Europe, ends up on a train in Venice, is approached by, you know, probably the most beautiful woman he’s ever come into contact with. And she appears to be quite interested in him. Asks him to come with her and stay with her and spend time with her. And he does . . . and then the automatic weapons ensue, and the romance ensues, and it gets pretty crazy from then on.

The Tourist received a definite GO SEE IT recommendation from Celebrity Wire Movie Reviews. It opens in theaters on Friday, December 10.
