Back in April we announced that Will Smith had returned to the production of the Warner Bros adaptation I Am Legend (here). Now that the wheels seem to be rolling for the project, the film may have picked up yet another big name.

Johnny Depp for I Am Legend

The good people over at BlackFilm recently received a scoop that claimed Johnny Depp had joined the roster of I Am Legend.

When Will Smith was cast as the lead in the long-awaited adapted film version of Richard Matheson's I AM LEGEND, it was probably the worst kept secret. After all, his name had been floating around the web for the longest time. Until certain outlets that folks feel are the bible of information put the word out to confirm our story, sources tell that along with Smith, JOHNNY DEPP has been added to the cast. No telling which role Depp will play, but given his penchant for playing extraordinary weird-like characters, expect a juicy plum part, like the neighbor, now one of the living dead.

Set in post-apocalyptic New York, I Am Legend is about the last healthy man following the release of a virus that decimates the population. To survive, he must battle mutants that wreak havoc during the night.

The film will be helmed by Constantine director Francis Lawrence.

For the entire report on Johnny Depp head on over to BlackFilm.

Stay tuned for updates.
