Rango: Johnny Depp’s Karma Chameleon

by | 23rd, February 2011

TO the photocall for Rango, a film starring Johnny Depp as the voice of a pet chameleon that “aspires to be a swashbuckling hero finds himself in a Western town plagued by bandits and is forced to literally play the role in order to protect it”.

Rango, incidentally, is a Sudanese musical instrument that came to Egypt with Sudanese slaves in the 1820s.

The film is directed by Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean – the fairground ride that became a hit film) and Isla Fisher, formerly of Home & Away (Neighbours in a bikini and surf shorts).
