Johnny Depp will co-produce The Secret World, an international TV show based on the video game of the same name, according to Deadline. While a lot of details, including casting, have not been ironed out, the announcement sounds definite.

Johnny Depp, Pam Veasey, Christi Dembrowski, Sam Sarkar, and Gudrun Giddings will be producing The Secret World for television. The script is currently being written by James V. Hart and Jake Hart. Pam Veasey, former showrunner of CSI: New York, will hold the same title for The Secret World.

The Secret World is perfect for a television series, as Gudrun Giddings explained to Deadline.

“It’s one of the most character driven and well-developed games I know of and naturally lends itself to fantastical storylines with intriguing characters, a thrilling and binge-worthy international TV show,”

Will Johnny Depp be cast as an actor in The Secret World show, or will he remain behind the scenes? It is still unknown exactly what Depp’s role in the development and shooting will be. The time table for airing the program also remains unknown. Logically, it will take up at least some of the musician and actor’s time in the coming months and into 2018.

One of Johnny Depp’s first accomplishments of the year will be court date to pursue his lawsuit against TMG for allegedly mishandling his money. There will be a jury, rather than a single judge’s decision and the case will be heard beginning January 24, according to Deadline.

Will Johnny testify in court in his own defense? It is yet to be seen how Johnny’s attorneys will present the case, but the actor might need to be there.

The Jack Sparrow actor has made eight movies in 2017, and some major projects, including Pirates of the Caribbean 5: Dead Men Tell No Tales, are already completed and have been released. Some of the new films are awaiting release and some are still being filmed. More Depp films have been announced, but have not started production.
