Depp's next film appearance will be in his latest collaboration with Tim Burton (more about their partnership on the next page).
Based on Lewis Carroll's classic book - and its sequel - Wonderland will see an updated version of the tale, sending the titular young lady (played by Mia Wasikowska) into a strange land populated by stranger creatures, including The Mad Hatter (Depp).
Depp went to the source for his research. "There are little mysteries, little clues in the book that I found fascinating that were keys to at least my understanding of the Mad Hatter, like him saying, 'I’m investigating things that begin with the letter M.'
"That was huge for me because when you do a little digging you realize you’re talking about a hatter, a man who made hats and if you go back and look at some of the historical hatters there’s that term that this guy or that guy is as mad as a hatter.
"There was a reason for that and the reason for that was mercury poisoning. So I found out what the M was and why they went nuts. So that became a huge thing."
