The series consisted of 38 issues from 2003 to 2009 and follows the Catholic Church in the 1930s where the church still holds political power in the world.  A murder mystery is featured amidst a search for the Holy Grail.

The film, to be directed by Joseph Kosinski, has no word on a planned start date and the project is still very much in development.

Johnny Depp is arguably the best actor alive today. He's quite versatile and often plays nutty characters.

Depp got his start on the television series, 21 Jump Street. Since then, the Kentucky-born actor has gone on to star in major movies such as Edward Scissorhands, Benny & Joon, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, Sleepy Hollow, all four of the Pirate of the Caribbean films, Finding Neverland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factoy, Public Enemies, Alice in Wonderland, The Tourist, The Rum Diary, and Dark Shadows.

To say the least, this actor can pretty much play any role out there.
