This has been mentioned a few times recently but Terry Gilliam has now confirmed it. This project has been mentioned on the imdb pages for each of the actors named here. I hope we hear or read more about it soon.

Sounds like his version of Good Omens which both Depp and Gilliam were attached to at one point.

It’s supposed to be released next year if rumors are to be believed.

Just months after it it was reported that Johnny Depp was not retiring from acting, the actor has lined up a new project with an old collaborator.

The 60-year-old actor has signed on to play Satan, alongside Jeff Bridges as God in director Terry Gilliam's The Carnival at the End of Days, via Premiere.

Gilliam himself - who directed Depp in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus - revealed the news at the Annency International Animated Film Festival in France.

'We're trying to determine exactly when and where it will be done. At the moment, filming is scheduled for next January. We'll see. And I have a pretty good cast: Johnny Depp, Jeff Bridges. Adam Driver and Jason Momoa,' Gilliam said.

Gilliam described the film as, 'comedy where God decides to destroy Humanity. And the only one trying to save us is Satan.'

The director continued that Satan is trying to save Humanity, 'Because he needs people in hell, otherwise he won't have a job for eternity!'

He added that his cast, 'need a woman to complete all that,' though he didn't indicate who he was considering for the female role.

He said that the female would be playing the 'modern-day' Eve along with a modern-day Adam, who Satan presents to God.

The director added Bridges' version of God, 'won't be the God we're used to,' adding, 'In the film, God is nature. But a nature that can speak to you.'

'I'm going to need animation to bring it to life, because in the scene with God, there are at least fifteen animals,' he continued.

'And it's going to be complicated, because it has to be realistic And it's going to be very expensive. what will happen. But it's a good scenario. It will be very funny for those who like to be offended,' Gilliam said with a laugh.

Gilliam had directed Depp in 1998's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas and 2009's The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus.

Depp also starred in the original version of Gilliam's The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, which was chronicled in the 2002 documentary Lost in La Mancha.
