Johnny Depp’s new look makes him almost unrecognizable

The first images of the actor in character for his upcoming film “Minamata” have surfaced, and once again he has transformed himself so much that he is barely recognizable.

55-year-old Johnny Depp is playing war photographer W. Eugene Smith in a movie that tells the story of the photojournalist’s documentation of the effects of mercury poisoning in the coastal town of Minamata, Japan, in 1971.

Local media in Serbia is pretty excited about the arrival of Depp to Belgrade to start filming, and they have shared pictures from an Instagram fan page that shows the actor in full character next to film producer Bill Johnson.

According to 23 SATA, the star doesn’t want to be disturbed during the shooting and will limit his social endeavors in the country to a meet with the 64-year-old acclaimed Serbian director Emir Kusturica.

But even if he was to walk freely around the city in his free time, there is a big possibility that he goes unnoticed, as he has undergone yet another incredible transformation to resemble Smith.

Now that Depp has left the “Pirates of the Caribbean” and his character Jack Sparrow behind, he is working in different and challenging roles that prove that he wasn’t stuck with the character he played for fourteen years.

The “Pirates of the Caribbean” star has gained weight for the role, and he has grown a white beard. In the picture, Depp is also wearing glasses and a black beret like the one Smith fancied wearing.

In another of the Instagram photos, Depp and English actor Bill Nighy seem to be looking at some pictures in a camera.

The first official image of Depp as Smith was also released. The film is based on a book of the same name by Aileen Mioko and Smith and was adapted into a screenplay by David K. Kessler.

“I am thrilled to be working with such a talented and dedicated team on the story behind one of the most devastating and relatively unknown catastrophes of the past 100 years,” said director Andrew Levitas.

“Every one of the cast and crew is determined to make the people of Minamata’s voices heard as we begin shooting this film,” Levitas added.

Smith became known for his coverage of World War II, but by 1971 he was pretty much retired and uninspired. All this changed when he heard about the victims of a corporation in Japan and decided to become involved in their struggle.

“Minamata” tells the story of Smith gaining the trust of locals before he uses his camera to try to denounce what the company is doing with support from the local authorities.

Now that Depp has left the “Pirates of the Caribbean” and his character Jack Sparrow behind, he is working in different and challenging roles that prove that he wasn’t stuck with the character he played for fourteen years.
