We'd heard that casting was eyeing Matthew McConaughey for a pivotal role in August, but since then there's been no word on any new names associated with the project. That may be because instead of a single film, the studio has decided they want Boone to make multiple films to properly adapt the novel.

Hollywood Film Awards: Slowly Killing the Golden Goose So now that the Hollywood Film Awards have been thoroughly mocked, tanked in the ratings and made presenter Johnny Depp a subject of rampant hilarity on social media for his on-air ramble – can we talk?

Watch Johnny Depp's Weird, Drunken Speech at the Hollywood Film Awards So this is why we don't see Johnny Depp on stage very often (ever?) at awards shows.
