Johnny Depp gets statue in Serbia
Johnny Depp has been honoured with a life-size statue in Serbia.
The statue in the image of the Pirates Of The Caribbean star was unveiled by Serbian director Emir Kusturica during an annual film festival - called Kustendorf - held in a mountain village in southwestern Serbia.
The Hollywood star met with Serbian President Boris Tadic upon his arrival and was then flown by helicopter to the mountaintop village.
Kusturica, a two-time Cannes Film Festival winner, said he plans to make a movie with Depp playing legendary Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa.
"Depp will be my guest for three days," Kusturica said.
"He will lead several workshops for participants of the festival, drink wine, watch films and visit some locations where he will shoot a film about Pancho Villa."
