And speaking of instinctual actors, you’ve worked with Johnny Depp a couple of times ...
He has, also, these very personal and impeccable instincts of how to approach a part. But then he does Pirates Of The Caribbean and he goes off. You know, I’m fascinated by the range of what he does – to me, he seemed to be almost hiding behind these eccentric characters, and when he did a realistic character [in Gilbert Grape], he’s very subtle. He’s fascinating; he’s very thoughtful in the process of how he approaches a part – wardrobe and makeup. He creates his character very thoroughly.
I’m hoping to work with him a year from now. We have a script – it’s called American Lover, and he’s on board and his wife [Vanessa Paradis] as well to do it. It’s about Simone de Beauvoir and her American lover, Nelson Algren. Hopefully we’ll do that next – in a year and half from now, I think. When he gets available.
Hallstrom was also attached to a romance, "My American Lover," which would have teamed Johnny Depp with his real-life squeeze Vanessa Paradis in a love story between an American novelist and a French philosopher. But Hallstrom is most definitely out of the loop on that one: "I don’t know what happened to that project," he shrugs, adding about Depp and Paradis, "I don’t even know if they’re together at the moment! Depp is a fantastic actor, and I’d like to make that happen. But I’m not certain about the casting, they may re-cast."

Aber wenn man da schon in den Kreisen spekulativ davon spricht dann zweifle ich langsam wirklich ob sie noch eine Beziehung haben . Aber ob sich die in Hass trennen würden ? Das denke ich nicht , beide sind professionell , da kann ich ja miteinander arbeiten .....
