JOHNNY DEPP WOULD LOVE TO STAR IN BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN’S LIFE STORY
Rumor has it that Johnny Depp recently approached Bruce Springsteen about starring In a movie about the singer’s life but Bruce turned him down flat. Bruce and Johnny are friendly and have hung out together – including after The Grammys last February, so we’ve been trying to figure out why Bruce, 63, wouldn’t be at least a LITTLE tantalized by the idea. Springsteen’s image as a working-class hero emerging in the early 80’s would certainly be appealing movie material and Johnny IS a frustrated rock star. But maybe Johnny, at 49, is a bit old to play the intense young Bruce. Or maybe Bruce is in no hurry to see his life onscreen. James Franco has also been suggested to play Bruce if indeed a movie biography gets made.
