Johnny Depp Will Not Be Your Theatrical Doctor Who
As a news-reporting film website, we here at Cinema Blend have a responsibility to report all rumors, as untrue as they may seem. Stories like "Megan Fox To Play Catwoman" and "Robert Pattinson To Play Spider-Man" are ridiculous, but if we don't report them and they end up being true, the egg is on our faces. So when Katey reported the story that Johnny Depp was being considered for a Doctor Who feature, it was a matter of protecting our integrity. Turns out that it didn't matter, because, as she expected, the story was complete bullshit.
Io9, the same source that dug up the original story, has gotten word from the BBC that there on no current plans to develop a Doctor Who movie and that rumor regarding such is "pure speculation."
So there you have it folks: Johnny Depp will not be replacing your beloved Matt Smith or David Tennant. You may now resume your regularly scheduled lives.
