Johnny Depp will NOT attend this year's Venice Film Festival–but things look good for Toronto!

Italian newspapers reported today that Johnny Depp will NOT be attending this year’s Venice film festival, even though Tim Burton’s CORPSE BRIDE will premiere there this evening, September 7th. Johnny has just completed a whirlwind trip to Japan during which he attended the Japanese premiere of CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY. Entertainment news reports do strongly suggest that Johnny will attend this year’s Toronto Film Festival to promote CORPSE BRIDE. Look for a press day on September 9th, followed by the screening of CORPSE BRIDE at The Elgin Winter Theatre (across from the Eaton Centre) at 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 10th. The celebrity news program EXTRA (not coincidentally owned by Warner Bros., distributor of CORPSE BRIDE) is already advertising that they will have footage of Johnny in Toronto on their show next week. We hope their sources are accurate!

The Zone thanks emma, Donna B., and lizbet for posting information about the film festivals. We have our fingers crossed for Johnny’s many Canadian fans, that their patience will be rewarded.
