    Johnny Depp To Play Satan In A ‘Funny’ Movie Meant For Those Who “Like To Be Offended”

    Get ready for a cinematic apocalypse unlike any other! Visionary director Terry Gilliam has assembled a dream cast for his latest project, ‘The Carnival at the End of Days, a film that promises to be both hilarious and blasphemous. In this carnival of the damned, Johnny Depp is playing Satan himself, and Jeff Bridges takes the role of a rather unconventional God.

    Additionally, for those who enjoy a good dose of absurdity with a side of social commentary, the film might just be the perfect cinematic escape.

    Gilliam, known for his surreal and satirical films like ‘Brazil’ and 12 Monkeys,’ isn’t shying away from pushing boundaries with his new project. He recently confirmed the casting choices in an interview. Depp, returning to a major film role after a long hiatus, will portray the Prince of Darkness, while Bridges will embody a unique vision of God, one intertwined with nature itself. 

    However, this isn’t the Sunday school God. Gilliam has hinted that Bridges’ portrayal will be brought to life with animation, adding another layer of absurdity to this already outrageous premise. “It will be very funny for those who like to be offended,” Gilliam quipped, clearly relishing the opportunity to stir the pot. 

    Adding fuel to the fire of anticipation is the news that Adam Driver and Jason Momoa have also signed on for the film. Their specific roles remain under wraps, but with a cast like this, you just know they’ll bring their own brand of brilliance to the table. Additionally, the possibilities are as endless as Gilliam’s imagination.

    Gilliam has also revealed the film’s central plot, which is as wacky as you’d expect.  Apparently, God fed up with humanity’s destructive ways, decides to wipe the slate clean and start over. The only problem? Satan, facing unemployment in a post-apocalyptic world devoid of sinners, throws a wrench into the divine plan.  

    Yes, you read that right. The Devil himself becomes the unlikely hero, fighting to save humanity from annihilation. This reversal of roles is pure Gilliam, a master of taking familiar narratives and turning them upside down. ‘The Carnival at the End of Days’ promises to be a wild ride, a cinematic cocktail of dark humor, social commentary, and visual extravagance.
