Salma Hayek & Johnny Depp To Play Pancho Villa

Depp is playing opposite Mexico's Salma Hayek, 46-year-old Depp will trade the swashbuckling antics of the Pirates Of The Caribbean series for the part of General Villa, El Pais newspaper quoted the Serbian director as saying.
Shooting on the film is set to begin early next year, split between Mexico and the Granada region of southern in Spain.
Kusturica is said to have hesitated between Depp and the Spaniard Javier Bardem for the part.
An emblematic figure from the 1910 Mexican Revolution, Francisco "Pancho" Villa (1878-1923) took up arms alongside Francisco Madero and later Emiliano Zapata, fighting against conservatives to found modern-day Mexico.
Based on a book about the Mexican hero by US writer James Carlos Blake, the Depp film will tell General Villa's story "through the eyes of his friends and the woman he loved," Kusturica said.
Companion to French singer Vanessa Paradis, with whom he has two children - Lily-Rose, 10, and Jack, seven - Depp was last month voted the sexiest man alive by US magazine People.
