Sure producers accept the award when a movie wins Best Picture at the Oscars and get to say awesome things like "I'll make you a star, kid!," but what the hell does a producer actually do?

Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer Blame Critics for 'Lone Ranger' Crash and Burn

Why did "The Lone Ranger" perform so poorly at the box office — earning just $86.7 million domestically on a $215 million, James Cameron-sized budget — and put such a stinky critical egg in the faces of director Gore Verbinski and stars Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer?

'Cause the movie sucked, you say? Well, they beg to differ. Get More »

'21 Jump Street' Sequel Will Be Brie-Free, Says Larson

Though it wasn't "necessarily" her choice, Brie Larson will not be returning to that street made famous by Johnny Depp.

Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are moving ahead with a sequel to the well-received action-comedy adaptation of the TV show that launched Depp in the late '80s, "21 Jump Street."

While it's unclear which other actors will return from last  year's critical and commercial hit  (we're certainly pulling for Ice Cube), Brie Larson recently revealed that she will not be back. In an exclusive interview with Screen Crush, the girl who played Hill's love interest in the movie said she has "no idea" what's happening with the sequel following a meeting with the film's directing duo.

"After speaking with them, it's not something I'm going to be a part of anymore than just in spirit," she said of her sit-down with returning co-directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller.

Hill will again produce, with his and Tatum's undercover cop characters reportedly posing as college students (rather than high schoolers). The joke in the title? The two of them move right next door to where they used to be. Get More »

Well, we hope you're happy now. You've really put your foot in it this time, earthlings. You misbehaved, and now Johnny Depp is threatening to retire.

In an interview with the BBC, Depp dropped a vague little truth-bomb that made the hearts of millions of fangirls everywhere die a screaming death.

"Are there quieter things I wouldn't mind doing? Yeah, I wouldn't mind that," he said. "I wouldn't say I am dropping out any second but I would say it's probably not too far away."

Gasp! Look what you've done, world! This is why we can't have nice things. Get More »

Despite being the headliner of one massive box office bomb — "The Lone Ranger" is expected to lose Disney something like $190 million (mega ouch!) — Johnny Depp's still having no trouble scoring himself new work.

Next up for the screen chameleon is a pic called "Mortdecai," which will feature Depp as Charles Mortedecai, a debonair art dealer-slash-rogue who per Lionsgate "must traverse the globe armed only with his good looks and special charm in a race to recover a stolen painting rumored to contain the code to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold."

Armie Hammer on Playing 'The Lone Ranger:' 'They're Big Boots to Fill'


When Armie Hammer decided to slip into the southwestern-sized boots of John Reid, better known as the Lone Ranger, in the film of the same name, he knew there would be some pressure. And not just from the sweltering heat or his cuckoo bananas costar Johnny Depp (who plays Hammer's Native American partner in crime Tonto), but his family. Dun-dun-dun!

In an interview with MTV News, Hammer admitted that when he accepted the role, he knew he had "big boots to fill." Hey! Your character wears cowboy boots, Hammer! We see what you did there. Get More »
