In 2004, Depp formed his own production company called Infinitum Nihil meaning “Nothing is forever”, where he serves as CEO, actor and producer, while his sister, Christi Dembrowski, serves as president. The company’s works include The Rum Diary (2011), Hugo (2011) directed by Martin Scorsese and Dark Shadows(2012), directed by Tim Burton.
Depp’s filmmaking ventures don’t end here: for four years, he’s been wrapped up in making a documentary film about Keith Richards and recently announced that it is complete. According to Depp, most of this process involved the two hanging out and listening to Richard talk about his life, inspirations and sharing his stories. The two are good friends.
Depp will also collaborate with Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides director Rob Marshall again to create a remake of The Thin Man, though the screenwriter Billy Ray of The Hunger Games fame calls it a “re-imagination” rather than a remake. He’s set to play Nick and they’re still searching for his Nora.
