Johnny Depp in Wonderland, Lone Ranger, Pirates 4

As if you aren't tired of him by now. At their keynote speech event, Disney annouced the greenlight on The Lone Ranger movie and it will be produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, and Depp will be starring as Tonto.
Secondly, Disney officially announced that Depp will play the Mad Hatter in Tim Burton's version of Alice in Wonderland. Hrm...I coulda guess that from millions of miles away. But anyway Tim Burton might turn out an interesting vision for Wonderland. Seems right up his alley. As of now, it has a March 5 2010 release date.
And lastly, the moment you all have been waiting for, Disney Chairman Richard W. Cook, announced a "Pirates 4". What you say? I didn't think any of them were all that great. However, they all made billions of dollars worldwide, so I guess this was a no brainer. And to add to that, Depp's payday on those films were pretty close to the 9 digit range.
So all in all, Depp seems like the real winner here, as he is going to make bank at the box office. While the market will be saturated with him.
