Depp, Verbinski reteam for 'Rango'

Depp will voice the lead character, a household pet that goes on an adventure to discover its true self.

John Logan ("The Aviator") has penned the script from an idea hatched by Verbinski. Verbinski will work with Industrial Light & Magic on the animation.

The CG "Rango" will be Par’s most ambitious star-driven entry into animation. Project was developed by King’s GK Films, which made the original deal with Verbinski (Daily Variety, Feb. 20).

"Rango" aims to use cutting-edge animation techniques that "will allow us to capture and translate every aspect of Johnny’s performance, using it to drive the computer-generated character in a way that has yet to be seen in an animated feature," Verbinski said.

Love it when you find out about our projects through online announcements...
