Filming has just begun on Lionsgate and OddLot Entertainment’s action comedy “Mortdecai” in the UK.
Johnny Depp, Gwyneth Paltrow, Ewan McGregor, Paul Bettany and Olivia Munn all star in the David Koepp-directed film in which Depp plays Charlie Mortdecai, a debonair art dealer and part time rogue.
Charlie must traverse the globe in a race to recover a stolen painting rumored to contain the code to a lost bank account filled with Nazi gold.
Angry Russians, MI-5, his impossibly leggy wife and an international terrorist are also thrown into the mix. Eric Aronson adapted the script from the novel trilogy by Kyril Bonfiglioli.
Depp is also producing alongside Christi Dembrowski and Andrew Lazar.
