UK, December 4, 2009 - Johnny Depp is in talks to play anti-hero Pancho Villa in the creatively monikered biopic Seven Friends of Pancho Villa and the Woman With Six Fingers.

According to Variety, the Pirates of the Caribbean star will play the Mexican revolutionary in a Spanish-language flick to be shot in Mexico.

Emir Kusturica (Maradona) will direct from a script that he has written with long-time collaborator Gordan Mihic. Story is based on novel The Friends of Pancho Villa, which revolves around the bandit's fighting, stealing, dancing, partying and making love.

Salma Hayek is also apparently in advanced talks to star, with production set to commence in 2011.

Wtf?? They shoulda hired an actor from the Mexican cinema. Anyway, it would be the second time he's played a Mexican after Don Juan Demarco...

That's gangsta, Mr. Villa would be honored to have a dish like Depp play him, not to mention he's a great actor. Depp would make the film more known, than if it was a Mexican, don't you want non-Mexicans to watch it as well? :D

Depp is part Native-American, so he's European-Native like a lot of Mexicans.

Al Pacino isn't Cudan, yet Scarface is a great film.

Johnny Depp > Any Mexican actor.
