Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp will not be appearing in Wes Anderson's latest movie The Grand Budapest Hotel.

The actor had been linked with the movie since early summer while Bill Murray, Angela Lansbury and Jude Law are other names on the cast list.

But Anderson has put the rumours to bed telling the Huffington Post that the Oscar nominated actor is not attached to the movie.

"You know, the Internet has a way of announcing things on its own. You will find that even though I'm very aware of the cast that has been announced on its own devices, you'll never find me saying who's in the movie.

"Or, as far as I know, anybody else. I really don't know where it all comes from. In fact, Johnny is somebody who I would love to work with at some point, but he's not going to be in this movie.

"But I actually have not put the cast out -- I have not announced the cast. We have quite a great cast."

We will next be seeing Depp in The Lone Ranger where he will take on the role of Tonto alongside Armie Hammer.
